In The COUTURE Podcast, Michelle Orman sits down with the people who make up the incredible COUTURE community to learn about their journeys, hear their stories, and gain insight into their lives and their creative processes. COUTURE’s jewelry designers and brands are creating jewelry with a unique point of view. Both on-trend and collectible, these wearable works of art are among the most highly coveted pieces of jewelry in the world. COUTURE’s retail partners, dedicated media and passionate influencers are all committed to introducing these collections to both jewelry enthusiasts, and admirers of art and the exploration of creativity alike.
The COUTURE Podcast with Katherine Jetter
Designer Katherine Jetter first made her mark on the fine jewelry industry with the introduction of fresh, contemporary designs featuring opals from her native-country of Australia. She is now recognized for prolific collections that highlight a vast array of extraordinary gemstones sourced from across the globe, and with her multi-brand storefront and Atelier in Nantucket and Boston respectively, Katherine is thrilled to showcase the collections of other artists whose work she admires and respects.
The COUTURE Podcast with Fernando Jorge
While he may still be waiting for a call from Beyonce, the work of artist Fernando Jorge is universally loved and admired. And yet, Fernando continues to be kind, humble and curious, and he remains committed to expressing his voice through his jewelry designs. Tune in to learn about Fernando’s initial discovery of jewelry design, his journey to obtaining expansive knowledge of the art form, and the ways in which his Brazilian heritage informs his design process.
The COUTURE Podcast with Valerie Messika
Valerie Messika’s high-profile collaborations with Gigi Hadid and Kate Moss are illustrative of this designer’s distinctive ability to appeal to a devout audience of well-heeled and stylish women from across the globe. In our latest episode of The COUTURE Podcast, Valerie shares with us her vision, her journey, her creative inspirations, and the incredible love story that brought her and her husband (and business partner!) together.
The COUTURE Podcast with Buddha Mama
While it’s now instantly recognizable for its exquisite gemstone, enamel, diamond and high-karat gold jewelry, Buddha Mama had humble beginning at the kitchen table of its founder, Nancy Badia, who decided to string beads in order to raise money for her Buddhist center. In our most recent COUTURE podcast, Nancy and her daughter and co-designer, Dakota, share with us the gradual evolution of their brand, their creative process and their nostalgia for non-stop travel and hole-in-the-wall bars.
The COUTURE Podcast with Stephen Webster
For designer Stephen Webster, a normal routine is the absence of routine. He’s perpetually jet-setting across the globe to visit clients and make personal appearances, but when COVID hit, Stephen found himself grounded at home in England. We caught up with Stephen, remotely, to hear about some of his adventures in quarantine, and we also reflected on some of his past experiences, his drive to give back and his dedication to creating a sustainable brand.
The COUTURE Podcast with Jeff Feero
Managing partner of Alex Sepkus, Jeff Feero, loves a challenge! Several weeks into sheltering in place, Jeff started thinking about how he could keep in touch with clients while possibly making some sales along the way. In May, Jeff purchased a vintage camper van and got behind the wheel to embark on the first of many long-haul trips to visit stores across the country. We were thrilled to sit down with Jeff over a campsite fire at his blueberry farm to hear about his many adventures from the road.
