A Minute With Angel Court...

We're super excited to have been interviewed for Accessories the Show's Spring/Summer 2011 trend report.  Here's what we had to say:

Angel Court Jewels
Angela Burgess & Courtney Taylor Designers/Proprietors Booth 724

What is one of your key items this upcoming 2011 Spring/Summer season?
One of our key items for this upcoming Spring/Summer season is pearls,
chain of all patinas, and crystals piled high: pile 1 (pl) n. 1. A quantity of
objects stacked or thrown together in a heap. Go big or go home!

Where do you draw your inspiration from?
A great deal of our inspiration comes from travel. Travel has been
the main educator in both of our lives; our aesthetic has been greatly
influenced by our journeys. While our inspiration often comes from
our past, our design sense and collections are always contemporary
and relevant.

What are some of your favorite trends this season and have you incorporated any of them into your designs?
Some of our favorite trends for this season are tassels. Tassels can
signify luxury, and at times the exotic. All while elongating the entire
dimension of any design.

What will draw retailers to your collection this upcoming season?
We feel that retailers will be drawn to our collection this season through
our statement jewelry which signifies nostalgia and adventure. We
are no stranger to bending the rules. When it comes to accessories
our adornments fearlessly translate the classic looks into bold global
statement pieces.

What direction do you see the accessories industry moving in?
We see the accessories industry moving in the direction of using a
juxtaposition of recessionary metals, brass, bronze, copper, and steel,
fused with jewelry as an adornment, with no delineation between
ornaments of worship and those of embellishment.

What would people be surprised to know about you?
Courtney: “People may be surprised to know that my photographic art
has been on a world tour, I have a nursing degree with no intention on
practicing anytime soon, and I love a dirty martini!”
Angela: “People may be surprised to know that I have been married for
23 years, I am afraid of the dark, and I like disco music.”

What are three things you can’t live without?
Frye boots, wife beater tee, skinny jeans.
