Thanks so much for such sweet, encouraging comments on the Diversey Lookbook! I’m happy to know you all love how it turned out as well.

Design Inspiration: Paisley

Of course if you’ve been following my twitter or MML, you know I’ve been inspired by paisley for this collection (some people have mentioned it looks like a ying on a ying-yang, but that was not intended – no meaning there). I chose paisley as the inspiration oddly because it was a pattern popular in interior design (my main source for jewelry design inspiration), that I actually hated growing up. It is often depicted in a very ornate, detailed way which did not rest well with my personal tastes as a fifteen-year-old. Now that I’m a bit older, I’ve learned to appreciate the intricate pattern more, but still haven’t found a paisley variation to adore.

So I decided to make my version of paisley. Something clean, fresh, and (as with all my jewelry) naturally graceful. I picked berry and winter white for this collection because I thought they would pair beautifully with fall clothing and add a much needed pop to dark navy, charcoal, and black tops. They also happen to do double duty and transition into spring and summer wardrobes beautifully as well- something that with my own budget, I’m quite aware of. I want my jewelry pieces to fit in my wardrobe 365 days a year. And as those who’ve been to my apartment can attest, I have an addiction to white and gold in any form.

A Sample of the Collection

To give you a taste of the collection, browse below- all our new paisley pieces are palladium gold-plated (palladium is a great high quality material to add longevity and durability) and our chains and wire are gold-filled as usual. I have designed each of the paisleys by sketch and then had an b-school buddy create the pendants. Then we take the pendants and design and assemble them in our studio by hand – Susie’s talented hands. The great thing about these pieces is that they are great quality but we’ve also been able to keep the price points between $25-$98.

Diversey Enamel Post Earrings, $25

Available in white and berry.

How. Cute. Are. These? I have been wearing my white posts with my Franklin necklace. At $25 they are great addition for almost any outfit.

Diversey Six Paisley Drop Earrings, $90

Equally flexible for outfits of all kinds, these puppies make a great statement without taking over the whole ensemble.

Diversey Simple Dotted Earrings, $62

Available in white or berry.

I love how the dots on these earrings mimic elaborate paisley designs in a modern way. Their asymmetrical shape is also so refreshing and unusual in jewelry. Love.

Diversey Medium Solid Paisley Necklace, $73

Available in white or berry.

Oh, my. I think this one gives a great pop to so many looks. I wore it with a blazer, flowy top, and dark jeans going out last weekend and felt like a million bucks.

Diversey Lariat-Style Dotted Paisley Necklace, $86

Available in white or berry.

This guy is a stunner. I think he’s best suited for clean, modern tops – a simple shell or shift dress is a perfect match.

Diversey Paisley Layering Necklace, $90-silver, $96-gold

Available with gold or silver chain (paisleys are gold)

A Jess LC collection isn’t complete any more without a great layering necklace. This is it.

Diversey Single Paisley Bracelet, $30- silver, $32- gold

Available with gold or silver chain (paisley is gold)

This little guy is so sweet and subtle – which means he’s a no-brainer for everyday of the week.

And of course there are eight other awesome styles online as well. Check them out and let me know what you think! I’d love to know which ones you love the most.

    Jess, what is so wonderful about your designs is that they go with EVERYTHING. It doesn’t matter what I’m wearing, my Jess LC jewelry compliments every outfit. I can’t wait to get my newly ordered Single Paisley Bracelet in the mail. Congratulations on this new collection!

    I know I mentioned in the other post how much I loved this collection – but I needed to gush again! Lol. I just love Paisley and it’s perfect for fall and especially that purpley pink color. How pretty! What a great collection! You did such a great job and you should be so proud of yourself! 🙂
