Mother's Day

THE MOST PRECIOUS GIFT OF ALL ...
BEING A MOTHER

 
 

 

As we near the celebration of Mother's Day, I wanted to share a glimpse of my greatest joy (aside from designing jewelry) - my two girls - Sophie & Emilie.  I love that jewelry is a keepsake that I can one day hand down to my girls and to their children.  Click on the photos below to shop our dressed up looks!

The OC x WF collaboration celebrates the love of timeless fine jewelry, coupling the beautiful, colorful world of cosmetics with Walters Faith's modern-meets-classic design. 

This collection is meant for eery occasion, it can be beautifully layered, dressed up or simply understated.  It speaks to the way we both approach our design sensibilities with our own companies.  Wearable, modern yet classic and always elegant. 

We had so much fun during the design process. The creative conversation was fluid from the beginning. Even though we come from two different industries, we both discovered that we had a similar vision for the collaboration. We knew we wanted to incorporate pops of color in a whimsical way that women could enjoy wearing every day and took inspiration colors from Chantecaille's cosmetics line palette— the pink of their Rose de Mai, the gunmetal of their compacts, the bold purple of the packaging, the white from their skincare.  

"As Creative Director, the small luxury details are very important, Mollie and Stephanie are completely on the same page. We put a lot of thought into the small touches like the smooth pebble design and wave detailing mimicking our signature compact. We wanted all of the pendants to open and reveal the miniature mirror inside— even the small ones. It feels that much more special. My three-year-old daughter Delphina loves the rose de mai pendant and always asks me, “open it please, Maman!” It’s the sweetest thing, and that is what makes these pieces even more meaningful to me."                    - Olivia Chantecaille
 

Suzanne Leeds: I AM CONTEMPORARY & SOPHISTICATED

 

We knew exactly who we wanted to reach out to when it came to finding our model in her 50s.  Suzanne Leeds is a very dear friend and has been a loyal supporter of Walters Faith since its inception.  She wears jewelry with such style and can layer and layer to create a really chic look.Suzanne is the ultimate contemporary woman - always sophisticated and graceful.

 

 

Olivia Chantecaille: I AM TIMELESS & ELEGANT

We met beauty maven,  Olivia Chantecaille, a little over a year ago when she borrowed Walters Faith for a photoshoot and became an instant fan of the collection.  When considering a woman in her 40s  for the I AM campaign, we knew Olivia was the quintessential Walters Faith girl as she truly represents timeless elegance.    

Amanda Alagem: I AM BOLD & DISTINCTIVE

We had the pleasure of including the classically beautiful Amanda Alagem, Senior Accessories Editor at Harper's Bazaar, in our I AM campaign. Working with jewelry all day long - Amanda has a keen eye and was able to hone in on the pieces she wears to create a bold and distinctive aesthetic.  Simplicity, as portrayed by Amanda, truly is the ultimate sophistication.       

Pamela Katz: I AM Cool & Confident

We love how Pamela Katz, a model & DJ, exudes the cool confidence of a young woman in her 20s.  Stylistically, she interpreted Walters Faith as the ability to layer on necklaces and wear rings across many fingers.  As a DJ, her rock star personality shines through with her choice of how she wears WF.  While the pieces she wears are classically inspired, Pamela has the ability to give them a youthful edge. 

I AM Campaign

We are so excited to announce the launch our first campaign, titled "I AM" to celebrate women of all ages.  The campaign stars beauty entrepreneur Olivia Chantecaille, fashion industry executive and consultant Susan SokolHarper’s Bazaar’s senior accessories editor Amanda Weiner Alagem, special events director Suzanne Leeds, and model and DJ Pamela Katz.  All women range in age from 20 to 60.

We saw through the first year of selling that women of all ages gravitated towards our collection and we felt it would be amazing to bring this to life to show that Walters Faith resonated with women at any age.  In selecting the 5 women, we turned to friends, clients, colleagues and admirers of the brand who represented the DNA of our brand identity. 

We had an amazing team who brought this campaign to reality.  Photographer Benjamin Rosser (http://www.benrosser.com/) and stylist Danielle Nachmani (http://thewallgroup.com/artist.php?artist_id=310) helped us create beautiful portrait shots that not only showed off the classic, timeless beauty of all 5 women, but also captured how effortless and wearable the jewelry was at any age.  

Each woman chosen for the campaign represents the essence of who Walters Faith is both in the woman wearing it and the jewelry itself.

Pamela Katz (20s) – exudes cool confidence

Amanda Weiner Alagem (30s) – bold and distinctive style

Olivia Chantecaille (40s) – timeless elegance

Suzanne Leeds (50s) – contemporary and sophisticated

Susan Sokol (60s) – effortlessly modern

PRECIOUS 7: ISSUE 29 FEATURING WALTERS FAITH

We are so proud to be a part of this month's Precious 7 issue.  Our jewelry traveled down to beautiful Miami Beach for a gorgeous photoshoot shot by Maria Galli.  Special thanks to all who contributed to make this interview and photoshoot a reality.  See a glimpse of the interview below and be sure to visit Precious7.com to see it in its entirety. 

There’s no more personal component of a woman’s wardrobe than her jewelry collection— even beyond the lingerie she wears. For so many women, their jewelry becomes an extension of themselves, a collection of beloved and well-worn pieces that mark special occasions, important milestones and treasured gifts.  Mollie  Good and Stephanie Abramow understand this intimacy a woman has with her jewelry; it’s exactly why they decided to use their own middle names to brand their jewelry collection, Walters Faith.  The pair founded their eponymous line of modern, delicate jewelry in 2013; the long-time friends both spent time in famous jewelry houses learning the industry previous to their collaboration and came together to start Walters Faith with a shared vision and similar aesthetic.  Both women felt there was a considerable gap in the market for simple, elegant jewelry that was well-made and appropriate for women of all ages to wear every day. As Abramow puts it, they started Walters Faith for “the young professional starting her jewelry collection or a woman in her 60s looking for a new layering piece.” In other words, they set out to create something timeless.

Mollie  Good and Stephanie Abramow understand this intimacy a woman has with her jewelry; it’s exactly why they decided to use their own middle names to brand their jewelry collection, Walters Faith. 

The pair founded their eponymous line of modern, delicate jewelry in 2013; the long-time friends both spent time in famous jewelry houses learning the industry previous to their collaboration and came together to start Walters Faith with a shared vision and similar aesthetic. 

Both women felt there was a considerable gap in the market for simple, elegant jewelry that was well-made and appropriate for women of all ages to wear every day. As Abramow puts it, they started Walters Faith for “the young professional starting her jewelry collection or a woman in her 60s looking for a new layering piece.” In other words, they set out to create something timeless. 

JUST AS THE JEWELRY LINE IS ALL ABOUT BALANCE, SO TOO IS THE PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN THE TWO WOMEN. WHILE GOOD IS THE CREATIVE FREE SPIRIT BEHIND THE JEWELRY DESIGNS, ABRAMOW MANAGES THE BUSINESS WITH HER METICULOUS EYE AND ORGANIZED MIND. IT’S A PARTNERSHIP THEY’RE RIGHTFULLY PROUD OF AND ONE THAT ALLOWS EACH WOMEN TO USE HER INDIVIDUAL STRENGTHS TO BUILD A COHESIVE, EFFICIENT BUSINESS. 

Good remembers going through her mom’s jewelry box for fun as a young girl; that fascination never diminished and after taking a Metalsmithing course during her years at the University of Michigan she decided to turn her passion for jewelry design into a professional career. After graduating, Good moved to New York to take courses in Jewelry Design and Diamonds and Colored Stones at the Gemological Institute of America.

She’s a self-proclaimed “old-school” designer, preferring to sketch her ideas by hand rather than mocking them up on the computer. To stay inspired, she likes to browse Art Deco books and peruse the Suzanne Belperron archives. While the line generally has a minimalist feel heavy on the neutrals, Good says she’s feeling super inspired by a recent “magical” gemstone show she and Abramow visited in Tuscon, Arizona earlier this year— word has it that the 2016 collection could see a little color.
