New York born and raised, Jamie Kole attended Parsons School of Design. Upon graduation, she entered the field of cosmetic product and package design. In time, she realized that the opportunity for expressing her true artistic vision was not possible within this framework. In the early 1980s, she set off in a new direction and began working with Rena Gill, a renowned fashion designer in NYCs SoHo.
Surrounded by Gills spectacular vintage couture collections, Jamie became passionate about collecting and wearing these timeless treasures. In search of the perfect adornments to complement her unique fashion sense, she began to design and create her own jewelry and accessories.
Before long, her work headlined top fashion magazines, department stores and boutiques, garnering international recognition. The collection features a subtle palette of sparkling hues for daytime chic, and transitions effortlessly into evening glam. Each piece is meticulously hand-sculpted in the spirit of timeless craftsmanship, with care and attention to every detail. Koles choice to employ crystallized Swarovski elements celebrates her vision of refined beauty. Varying lengths of glittery texture and color are her signature.
Recently, in a joint venture with international bestselling author Marianne Williamson, Kole developed and designed Everyday Grace, a collection of fine jewelry incorporating Williamsons spiritual quotes and affirmations.
The rare aesthetic of Jamie Koles artistry places her amongst the most revered designers in her field. While deeply rooted in her vintage sensibility, Koles prolific collections have never failed to mesmerize with their classic contemporary edge.
