Last Wednesday my typically mundane week was pleasantly shook up with a lunch date at Row Fourteen with Lindsay Bloom, the talented designer of Bloom Jewelry, and Stacy McElhany-Rodgers, Bloom’s Operations Manager. I briefly met Lindsay before at the Adorn event but it was a pleasure to chat over tacos on a perfect fall patio day and get to drool over tray after tray of her beautiful pieces. Lindsay started making jewelry as a teen and after fulfilling some business class requirements in college, where she wrote her business plan for Bloom, she turned that assignment into reality and now has a full fledged and prosperous business, gaining momentum after 8 years. Despite the growth and boom of Bloom, Lindsay still proudly crafts each bangle that leaves her Highlands studio by hand.
As a young mother of a one year old, Bloom’s aesthetic mirrors that of a modern day mompraneur with style. She arrived fresh faced, sporting a pair of her own hoops and a couple of her own necklaces; a short chain with a bar, and a long toggle necklace with a pendant, all pieces top sellers and understandably so. A great fitting pair of bootcut jeans, a simple and elegant cream blouse (allowing for her jewelry to steal the show) and classic heels completed her polished look. The toggle necklace can be worn short or long, two in one, my kind of investment piece!
I got the best bit of dessert when she showed me her latest design, the Black Tie, a simple black elastic hair band transformed to an adorned bracelet when worn around the wrist. These arm party transformers, in a bout a dozen designs, were recently featured in InStyle, AND the John Barrett salon in Bergdorf Goodman, NYC placed an order for the genius little stretchies! The idea came about on Bloom’s wedding day when she nearly walked down the aisle with a black Goody band around her wrist. A very good bridesmaid stopped her, but an idea was born. You can even find a set with a faux pearl and crystals, perfect for bridal party gifts if I dare say so. Other featured pieces were her emerald, sapphire and garnet collections and her leather wrapped hoops, bangles and wrap bracelets.
You can find Bloom Jewelry in a few boutiques around Denver including Posh, The Perfect Petal, and Garbarini, as well as Terra Verde, Two Skirts and Perch. You can also meet the sweet southerner yourself tomorrow night at Fashion Plates! (Details below) Have your tickets yet? Only $10 when you use code ffftix at checkout on Event Brite here.

I’ll be introducing husband to Bloom Jewelry in case he needs gift ideas. 😉 A leather wrapped eternity bracelet and pair of hoops make list for Santa. What’s your favorite piece?
