Jamie Wolf is sort of like the Jenny Packham of jewelry: absolutely flawless, design after design. Not only is Jamie a former ballerina with the New York City Ballet — talk about talent to boot! — she is also a passionate supporter of the arts, particularly her old dance company; up to 50% of the profits from some of her pieces are donated to NYCB. And we’re not talking silly pointe shoe pendents either, but some of the most original, jaw-dropping creations a bride could ever hope to don on her wedding day.
Jamie is also a celeb favourite, having been patronized by the likes of Julia Roberts, Beyonce, Emma Stone, Amy Adams and Halle Berry. She also designed Natalie Portman’s eco-friendly engagement ring (which allegedly cost between $20-30K), fitting as her now-husband Benjamin Millipied is a principal dancer at the New York City Ballet who met the starlet while choreographing Black Swan. Every one of Jamie’s pieces in handmade in New York City, and, according to her website: custom pieces of available upon request. In the words of my fantasy celeb BFF Rachel Zoe, I die.
Here is just a handful of my personal favourites from Jamie Wolf’s treasure chest:
Jamie’s pieces are available in her own online boutique as well as Neiman Marcus. Pricing $890-$29,000 (in case you’re engaged to a sheik); most earrings around $2,000.
As editor of Wedding Style File, I am always on the hunt for fresh ideas and inspiration, which typically involves scouring bajillions of blogs and websites each week. I usually dig up more gems than I have time to post about, which is why I’ve decided to introduce a brand new feature on Wedding Style File! On the weekends, when Wedding Style File is re-charging its battery, I’ll be sharing some of the little things I’ve spotted lately that interest, intrigue or inspire me, wedding-related or otherwise. I hope you enjoy the first installment of Sunday Assortment!
1. Phenomenal vow renewal via Snippet & Ink: A bride and groom who have been married almost seven years decided to inscribe their wedding vows on the walls of their house — currently undergoing renovation — which would then be painted over and transformed into a hidden treasure. “I had this dream that our house was falling down hundreds of years from now and the new owners saw some writing behind the layers of paint,” says the bride. “As they started to peel back the layers, they saw our vows.” Bonus: The bride and groom slipped back into their old wedding attire and had the occasion documented!
4. A remarkable still life photo shoot by British set designer Sarah Parker and photorapher Micheal Bodiam captures the everyday diets of Olympic athletes. From TrendLand: “Creating oversize paper settings with miniature-looking real food products, each plate represents a specific diet.” Pictured below: the 2,282 calorie diet of a 17-year-old female artistic gymnast.
