A New York native with the spirit of a world traveler, JeyFree has embarked upon a creative journey that one cannot help but wonder about. Her fascinating accessories not only help give any outfit the perfect amount of pizazz, but they also give meaning to the word FREE-dom. Drawing raw inspiration from all the good and bad things she’s seen in life is what makes her designs scream at you softly. In the midst of all the emotion, color and self-expression, JeyFree allowed me a few moments to get in her mind and her world.
What inspired your jewelry line and what keeps it thriving?
My jewelry is inspired by everyday life and the want for something more. I originally started making jewelry back in 2008 . I remember it like it was yesterday I was excited about going to a event bought a outfit and couldn’t find the right pair of earrings that matched my loud vintage outfit . I looked over at my painting on my wall and TADA magic happened.
The great thing about building something is, you get to see growth before your very eyes. How have your designs evolved since you first began?
My designs have grown from my style of finishings to added new styles and shapes of hearts, squares, diamonds and etc.
Have you had any personal milestones that have influenced your collections? Please explain.
We all experience personal milestones that inspire us or breaks us down, for me art is truly my great escape.
If you could create a collection based on a social issue going on in the world at the present moment, what would it be? Why?
Aids awareness is one of the many causes that I fight for because it touches me personally because it has affected 2 family members. In this past i have created a whole collection dedicated to this cause and even had a fashion show for them . $5.OO out of each pair of ear pieces goes to Aids Houston . I will continue to raise awareness by making more awareness speak pieces.
Describe the feeling you want clients to get when they wear your work? How do you make sure your work evokes that emotion?
JeyFree: The feeling I want people to feel when wearing a original Jeyfree piece is ORIGINALITY, EXCLUSIVE and ONE OF A KIND! I don’t duplicate any pair so in reality each client walks away with confidence knowing they are the only person in the world with that same exact piece.
