EMILY P. WHEELERShop Collection
Los Angeles-based designer Emily P. Wheeler took a serious interest in jewelry at 13 while on a road trip with her father from Boston to Arizona. Her dad, an architectural photographer, stopped often at roadside markets to collect Native American turquoise and sterling silver jewels and curiosities. Also born with a collector’s eye, Emily gravitated towards colorful rocks and gems, and was gifted with a rock tumbler upon their return home.
In the years between her budding jewel obsession and her formal turn as a designer, Emily gravitated towards art and music. As a 15-year-old model, she was signed to IMG and quickly got a huge break as part of an Italian Vogue feature shot by Peter Lindbergh called “Next Generation”. Choosing to stay in school, Emily headed to Providence, RI where she was part of the punk rock scene.
Her early fascination with gems and jewelry resurfaced in her 20s, and she spent summers avidly attending trunk shows at Tayloe Piggott gallery in her parents’ hometown of Jackson, WY. Emily found success making one-off beaded pieces and selling them to friends, but longed to work with fine materials, so she started a program of self-education by attending the Tucson gem fairs and learning all she could from networking and a small group of mentors.
The next step was partnering with a small, family-owned factory in Los Angeles in 2015 to create a small set of signature pieces, including her Platform ring, by learning through trial and error. Once she had a handle on the level of quality and construction she aspired to, she set out to build a collection that finds its roots in her personal history: a little bit of architectural simplicity (her dad), a little bit of punk rock (her college years), and a little bit of edge (her early days modeling).
Today, Emily P. Wheeler’s 18-karat gold, diamond and fine gemstone jewelry can be found in a carefully-chosen handful of exclusive high-end retailers across the U.S., including Material Good, Fivestory and ETC.
EVA NOGAShop Collection
Native to Czech Republic, Eva became fascinated with the handmade jewelry world while taking classes at The School of Visual Arts and Parson School of Design in New York City.
Having made her mark early on in the textile and fashion industries, Eva wanted to explore the journey of jewelry design and manufacturing. What began as a passionate hobby became a full time reality when Eva Hanusova Designs was created in 2010. Instead of jewelry simply manufactured by a machine, Eva wanted the imperfect beauty and sensual feel found in handcrafted designer jewelry.
Eva's collection was designed, inspired and crafted to reflect the beauty of natural forms with the endless potential of blending color, shape and texture.
Eva Noga Fine Jewelry (Noga, being her married name!) launched in 2017. Eva wanted her second passion, gardening, to be reflected in her delicate collection created using baguette diamonds, tourmalines, faceted gemstones and 14k gold settings. Her passion for anything botanical has inspired her collection filled with diamond-accented beetles, spiders and other worldly critters.
She sees the organic forms that are central to her designs as natural extensions of the body and is drawn to colorful irregular gemstones. Eva puts her heart into each piece that she not only designs, but also manufactures with her own hands.
The collection was launched in 2007 and was quickly selected by Saks Fifth Avenue, Moda Operandi, Catbird, and ABC Carpet and Home amongst other international retailers. The designers trace their roots in jewelry back to their ancestral homeland in the north western deserts of India. Their homeland is a place enchanted by history, mysticism and beauty and is where the edifices of their family lineage still stand today. Each edifice was carved with the most skilled hand; to tell stories of mythology of the land. Through their trips back to India it was these stories that continue to inspire their collections.

Sorellina is vintage-inspired but unexpectedly modern
with roots in the golden age of New York style.
Co-founders and sisters Nicole & Kim Carosella grew up of the north
shore of Long Island, NY, where they were raised with a deep appreciation
for the arts and shared a love of design. After graduating with
a Fine Arts degree from USC, Nicole studied Jewelry Design at the
Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. Kim attended Tulane
University for Art History, and then relocated to Florence, Italy,
to continue her studies.
Upon Kim’s return to New York, the sisters decided to set the course
for their future business. After both working in the jewelry industry,
in early 2012, with a clear vision, Nicole and Kim founded Sorellina.
With an opportunity to develop jewelry that expresses their own
unique sensibility, the sisters began clearly defining what great design
means to them and how that translates to their clientele. Neither subtle
nor discreet, Sorellina pieces are bold statement pieces made for
the urban, modern woman. Sorellina creates a harmonious dichotomy
by seamlessly blending opposing ideas of feminine with masculine
and vintage with modern. A distinct style emerges from this balance
that is quintessential Sorellina.
