The Bernadette collection was designed in honor of Emily's new daughter, welcomed in April 2022. A celebration of female empowerment, the collection is inspired by women of the mid-to-late 20th Century who began purchasing jewelry for themselves as a form of feminist self-expression.
In design, Bernadette is a nod to statement pieces of the 1960s, ’70s and ‘80s, referencing the work of Rudi Gernreich and Steven Burrows, whose creations ignited a new era in fashion that inspired women to dress for themselves. Incorporating color blocking and geometric patterns reminiscent of their designs, Bernadette embodies the same spirit.
Bernadette is meant to inspire current and future generations of people to continue to openly celebrate their identity through the jewelry they wear.
