Summer is the incredibly talented designer and owner of Ayn Jewelry. We met back in July and immediately got down to business working on her brand photography – for me an easy task as she already has so much style and her jewelry carries the brand all on its own. Her handmade, slightly rough, organic designs gave me a fun playground of inspiration!
What struck me most about Summer is the incredible detail of each piece she creates. From soldering to waxing, she hammers little details I never thought possible. Just photographing her process taught me far more about her work than I knew! I love the dark and complex nature of her workshopping in the jewelry studio.
I won’t even try to make this sound less amazing than it is. This week Summer is off to Florence to study a master jewelry and up her game in setting stones. She’s already got a dreamy collection – just wait till you see what she’s got cooked up when she returns!
