Alamo Jewelry Designer Brings her Craft to Hollywood

An Alamo resident and jewelry designer is jumpstarting her business this week in Beverly Hills, where her eco-friendly, fine silver earrings will be gifted to celebrities stopping by The Artisan Group exhibit for the Golden Globes celebrity gifting.

Jessica Richards, designer/owner at Wishful Jewelry, was asked to create 100 pairs of earrings for the Golden Globes celebrity gifting. To fulfill the request, she created 50 pairs each of two different designs.

Jessica handcrafted the earrings in her Alamo studio, using a time-intensive process that involves up to seven separate steps. The finished earrings will be presented to celebrities on walnut wood earring display cards tucked inside in a luxe Wishful Jewelry branded gift box.

In designing the earrings for the Golden Globes gifting, Jessica stayed true to her modern urban aesthetic, which she believes is a great fit for the celebrity recipients.

“The Wishful Jewelry customer has a fresh, easy style ... They are contemporary yet classic. They’re distinctive enough to add a bit of edge but neutral enough to be worn every day.”

Also, in keeping with Wishful Jewelry’s eco-friendly approach, Jessica recently began a partnership with the National Forest Foundation, where she will plant a tree for every piece of jewelry she sells.

Prior to embarking on her jewelry design career, Jessica was a retail store designer and graduated from the School of Architecture at the University of Oregon. All Wishful Jewelry designs are handcrafted using quality materials; either eco-friendly recycled silver or sterling silver, and gemstones. The company’s most popular designs are its textured rings and fairytale earrings, which feature sterling silver draping chains and an [optional] gemstone briolette which can be customized to suit the customer’s needs.
