Designer Interview for NUDE by Annamarie Sabo for La Corza Jewelry

Posted on


La Corza Designer Jewellery
 What inspired you to become a jewellery designer?
A combination of factors brought me to designing jewellery. Probably the biggest was experiencing the loss of my prior business and home to a devastating fire. I literally had to start over again, and with that question what I most wanted to accomplish, and what would be most satisfying to me and my spirit. Having already been a top jewellery salesperson for a major retailer in the U.S., I knew what people were looking for, so that was in my favor.

 What is your favourite piece of jewellery?
The iconic cactus cuff launched the brand with it’s unique organic yet refined open weave pattern. It was two years in the creation stage and well worth the wait.

Which celebrity would you love to wear your jewellery and why?
I design for both women and men, and that is one of La Corza's strengths, I think. I love seeing my designs on people from people who look different from one another but share something within, a certain strength and certainty. I'm thrilled that my pieces look as stunning on Conchita Wurst as they do on an NFL football player or someone as iconic as Alicia Keys or Alexa Chung. I design for individuals who want to stand out.
Out­with jewellery is there any other career that you would love to try?
I've been lucky to have several dream jobs during my life, including producing videos and major events in Seattle. Since I often refer to my home as an urban farm, and when I have time to fully cultivate the land around my home I could easily produce everything from organic greens to duck eggs as a small farm. So perhaps I would say urban farmer?
What can we expect to see from you in the future?
La Corza has been growing so steadily, but I can never keep up with the sketches that come to mind when I have time to plan out new collections. I would love to develop new lines for men and women that build on our model of organic, timeless beauty. We've been asked to work on some exciting new custom pieces, and I would love to offer my clients more opportunities to personalize their own pieces and make them truly bespoke. I may have to clone myself to do it, though!
