DOLCE: PAMELA FROMAN FEATURED AT TRUNK SHOW
Beau Staley of Dolce and Pamela Froman plan to donate a percentage of the sales from Pamela’s trunk show to the fire-fighting efforts in Colorado.
The best color in town this weekend, Telluride Wine Festival, is not just in wine glasses. It’s in the bling.
Meet the artist and check out the trunk show at Dolce Jewels, now – July 5, 11 a.m. – 8 p.m. Pamela Froman’s latest collection of handmade, one-of-a-kind, limited-edition pieces comprised of multiple colors of precious metals (22 karat gold or platinum) and rare natural stones is featured.
“We have been working with Pamela for about four years. We chose to include her line at Dolce because of the uniqueness and quality of the work. For this collection, Pamela worked in colored gold (brown and green) to create her signature, forged look of rustic elegance. The different colors of the metal blend seamlessly together. Pamela’s distinctive designs can be worn day or night and as easily on the streets of Telluride as New York.” said Beau Staley, owner, Dolce.
Born and raised in New York by her mother, the well-known sculptor and designer, Ann Froman, Pamela graduated from the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology. She subsequently moved across the pond, settling in Paris, where she began her career designing jewelry for the top couturier salons, including Courreges, Cacharel, Carita, Guy Larouche, and Valentino.
The Pamela Froman Jewelry Collection debuted in 2006 in Las Vegas. In 2008, the artist was identified as one of the “10 Best New Jewelry Designers” by InDesign Magazine. Froman also received the coveted Town & Country Couture Design Award for Best of Gold, an award often referred to as the “Oscar of the jewelry industry.”
Froman’s bling is distinguished by irregular surfaces and a special hand-hammering technique she described as “crushed.” Celebrities who “have a crush” on Froman’s unique designs include: Halle Berry, Diane Lane, Debra Messing, Meredith Brooks, Whoopi Goldberg, Norah Jones, and Eva Mendes
Pamela feels strongly that individuality is the underlying theme of beauty in design.
“I believe the more a piece is worn the more beautiful it is because it becomes part of the person’s essence. Two people can wear the same piece and it will have a different look or give off a different aura. I like to think that if my jewelry were someday discovered in an old buried treasure chest, it would stand the test of time, much like the antiquities of the great civilizations do today.”
