On The Road with Simon & Ruby: A Travel Lookbook
Explore destination and intricate jewelry design with Simon & Ruby founder, Lindsay Farrer. Lindsay has been a longtime small business friend of mine and I was thrilled to collaborate with her on a travel look-book! This Local Lady spread is perfect for the nomad seeking to stylize their explorations! "On the Road" features a series of destinations paired with jewelry pieces that fit the culture and feel of each place. Hope this feature draws you to planning your next destination with local products in hand. :)
A note from the designer:
"Sitting on my desk is a handwritten note card with the words: Be someone who sees the beauty in the world and shares it with others. I have this card as a gentle reminder of the mission of Simon & Ruby, my jewelry line.
We need more beauty and magic in our lives.
We need more of that euphoric feeling you get when you’re exploring a new place.
We need to always live in the wonder you experience when you’re completely out of your element and in awe of the world around you.
I craft wearable pieces of art for globetrotters and those with an unshakable sense of wanderlust that are meant to transport you back to moments, memories, and places.
Each piece is a gentle, stylish reminder of a friendly conversation, the fluttering pulse of adventure, the flavor of a new culture, or the awe of the freshly explored. Simon & Ruby jewelry is a link between the experience of a place and a tangible object—a talisman to attach a memory or a feeling to the here and now. When you feel the brush of the earring against your cheek, or the tap of the necklace against your chest, or the hug of a bracelet as it slides up your arm, you relive your journey.
In order to do that, traveling is non-negotiable. Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite destinations and a mini collection of pieces that I would wear when traveling to each of them."
