Named Pamela Love after the designer herself, the label is created in 2006 in her Brooklyn apartment. Today, the company is known around the world for its ethical values, with pieces that are assembled in Pamela Love’s own house and made up of recycled materials. Pamela Love has created a very particular universe, which ultimately became her signature. Her inspirations are diverse – the sciences, history, folklore, rock, tribes, nature and magic are some of the themes that she revolves around and that make the brand unique and charming. The designer uses her memories, her trips, and her knowledge to conceive jewelry that defines her image and history. Her jewels are mystical in nature; snakes mixed with eagles and leaves, and feathers mixed with precious stones are some of the combinations to be found.
Born in 1982, Pamela Love grows up in South Florida and is brought up by her father and brother; a surgeon and mathematician, respectively. She quickly becomes passionate about the sciences, as well as art. After graduating from New Yor’s Tisch School of Arts where she studied cinema, Pamela Love becomes a creative director and Francesco Clemente’s assistant, a worldwide famous painter. It is during that period that she discovers the role of art in her life, and decides to make it her career. Between American cowboys and Mexican tribes, she is inspired by folklore and creates a universe that is at the same time mystical, symbolic and contemporary. With a reputation that has been built over the years, Pamela Love partnered with many during her early years: Zadig & Voltaire, Zac Posen and even Topshop. She is rewarded multiple times; the CFAD awards her the Best Eco-friendly Designer title in 2012, and then the Best Accessory Designer title in 2013.
