Meet…Caroline Ventura of BRVTVS

we had a jewelry crush on Caroline Ventura of BRVTVS (pronounced “Brutus” and named for the unfaithful friend of Julius Caesar) well before we actually met her. now that we’ve teamed up with her for the launch of our fine-jewelry collection, we thought it was high time we invited ourselves over to her West Village studio to see how she puts it all together.
Caroline wears her own COS button-down and the Point Sur hightower skinny jean in epic wash.


A Google search reveals that you learned about soldering in middle school. True? The other kids were making friendship bracelets and you were an aspiring metalsmith?
My dad worked as a video engineer in Hollywood on a lot of films—all the Rocky and Rambo movies and the Naked Gun series, to name a few—so he was always fixing video equipment in his workshop. A lot of it required him to fix circuit boards, so he was always soldering things. I used to love to go in there and ask a million questions about what each part did and what needed fixing.

Like many good lines, yours began with the desire to create a bracelet you could wear every day. Can you tell us a bit about that?
I wanted a delicate bracelet for myself—something simple that I could wear daily. At the time, most of the jewelry out there was really flashy; costume jewelry was a big trend. The few pieces I liked, I couldn’t afford, so I just decided to make a bracelet myself. I researched where to buy gold at wholesale, and it just happened from there. My first trip to the diamond district in New York City opened my eyes. I bought chain, clasps, gold sheet and metal shears and pliers and went home to mess around.
How would you describe the BRVTVS aesthetic? How does it reflect your own personal approach to style?
I think things are at their best when they are simple. I love the idea of having a uniform of sorts, and I really try to design things that you put on and don’t want to take off, so it becomes a part of you.

I’m really into the idea of combining opposites. Pairing my thick ring with the delicate chain link ring is one of my favorite combos. Even the way I dress—I gravitate toward clothes that are a little more boyish, but I love feminine materials like linen and silk.

Your own personal piercing mix-and-match approach to earrings is pretty unique too…
I’m really drawn to asymmetry and mixing shapes and metals. I sell all my earrings individually, as opposed to doing them in pairs, so you can mix different pieces together to create your own unique setup. My friend Colby, who works at NY Adorned, is my go-to when I need a piercing fix. He’s brilliant at creating something unique for each person he sees.
Where does your design process start?
Each piece comes to life differently. Sometimes, I have an idea that needs to be sketched out so I can get proper proportions and see it on paper. Other times, I just have an idea and start working with the metal right away. Living in New York is great inspiration. I’m really drawn to architecture. I love when I come across an interesting shape and can figure out how to translate it into something wearable.

Studio Tour: Catbird™

in certain jewelry-obsessed circles, Catbird’s Rony Vardi is known as the authority on the art of the ring stack. we checked in with the Williamsburg shop owner and newest J.Crew fine-jewelry collaborator to find out how she got her start.
Rony wears her own Saint James® for J.Crew slouchy tee and her own stack of Catbird rings.


BROOKLYN MADE
Before Rony Vardi opened Catbird on Williamsburg’s Metropolitan Avenue in 2004 (the shop has since moved to Bedford Avenue), she was like any other twentysomething, bouncing around between jobs—working as a seamstress and then as a graphic designer. “I knew I eventually wanted to work for myself and had this idea of an ongoing creative project that would take shape over time,” she says. When a retail space opened up in her neighborhood she took it as a sign. “I think Williamsburg’s energy is still its biggest appeal, and there has always been a strong entrepreneurial spirit,” she explains. Now, Catbird has a team of 30 employees (and counting) and a three-room office space, which includes a full jewelry studio, right near the Williamsburg Bridge in addition to its stand-alone boutique.
Clockwise from top: Rony wears a Catbird 14k gold ballerina earring, a diamond elfin stud and dot earrings; Threadbare stacking rings; Catbird created this 14k gold Lovecat ring (“We first made it as a pinky ring for Jenna,” says Rony) and a pair of Les Petites earrings just for J.Crew; she pairs a personal piece with the Catbird long changeling necklace.
PIECE BY PIECE
At Catbird’s storefront, the vitrines of jewelry remain the shop’s biggest draw. “When we first started, we had one woman who made us a few bands from home. Now we have 17 full-time jewelry designers,” says Rony. The process is wholly collaborative too. Some designs start with a wax carving or sketch. Designs aren’t introduced seasonally but instead when the team comes up with something they really like. Case in point: The idea for one of their best sellers, the ultrathin Threadbare ring, came from her buyer, Leigh Plessner. “The idea was this little wisp of gold that would become an instant keepsake,” says Rony. “We love picturing little girls being given their mom’s Catbird stacks years from now.”

Studio Tour: Jennifer Fisher

former LA-based stylist, Jennifer Fisher’s jewelry collection was born out of an unfruitful search for a necklace to commemorate the birth of her son, Shane. we visited the designer in her SoHo studio early one morning for our own lesson in layering.

LUCKY CHARMS
During her childhood, Jennifer Fisher’s parents would return from their travels with bracelet charms for her as a reminder of their adventures. After the birth of her first son Shane she had trouble finding something similarly symbolic. So she asked a local jeweler to make a dog tag with Shane’s name on it. “It was an instant conversation piece,” she says of the tag, which she wore on a long gold chain. “People began asking me to create custom ones. From there, the business was born.”

CONVERSATION STARTER
For her fine jewelry collaboration with J.Crew, Jennifer and our team selected 10-karat charms like a lock and key, lightening bolt, a jagged star (an exclusive she created just for us), dog tags with the words like “love” or “dream” as well as a selection of initials. The assortment is meant to mixed and matched. “I love the idea that you can make your necklace feel dainty or heavy, simple or eclectic depending on your style,” she says.
