Sweet Gresham Hodges, an adorably tiny package who is BIG on personality and design know-how. Gresham has been making jewelry almost her entire life, having her first jewelry show in the 7th grade! Flash forward a few years and we have an incredibly talented designer who is in over 40 retail locations all over the globe.
Studying under a goldsmith in Florence, Italy, Gresham learned classic techniques and began to understand jewelry as a true art form. Gresham loves Renaissance-era jewelry and you can see it's influence in her own pieces with her use of color and precious and semi-precious stones. But her own collection feels anything but antiquated. Gresham gives her bracelets, earrings and necklaces a thoroughly modern feel by incorporating unique cuts of stones, braided suede, fringe, carved feathers and wooden arrowheads. It's her personal mix of classic with unexpected elements that allow her pieces to look just as fitting on a teenager as they would on that teenager's grandmother. And that's just how Gresham wants it to be.
When Gresham is not at the studio you will probably find her unwinding with family and friends. Or rocking out at an Avett Brothers or Old 97's concert. We love this gal.
