PAMELA LOVE IS A JEWELRY DESIGNER AND ARTIST.
SHE IS RENOWNED FOR HER CAPACITY TO TRANSLATE NATURE'S
MERCURIAL ENCHANTMENT INTO TALISMANIC ORNAMENTS THAT GROUND
EPHEMERAL MOMENT'S WITHIN INFINITY'S COSMIC SPECTRUM.
Working out of her design studio in Manhattan’s Garment District, with a full production facility where all her products are made by hand, Pamela creates an eponymous seasonal collection and collaborates with a wide range of brands and artists, established and emerging. She has collaborated with Opening Ceremony and Spike Jonze on an accessory line inspired by “Where the Wild Things Area,” designed shoes for Nine West, joined forces with rising New York fashion label Creatures of the Wind and more. Along the way, Pamela has collected numerous accolades, including the CFDA Swarovski Award for Accessory Design and Ecco Domani Fashion Fund Award, as well as set an example to the industry for ethical production and sourcing. Last year she introduced a signature fine jewelry collection, and this month she relaunches her website.

LASTLY, WHO ELSE SHOULD WE INTERVIEW FOR THIS? AND WHAT QUESTION SHOULD WE ASK THEM?
You should interview Mish Way, the lead singer of White Lung, and asked her about her time on the road. And who her favorite rebels are. And what her favorite breakfast cereal is.
You should also interview Jennifer Herrema from Royal Trux and Black Bananas. You should ask her the same questions, and also ask her about her denim collection. And about Royal Trux getting back together. And who her hero is.
