Get to know Horseshoe Market Sponsor 2016: Mercer & Jayne
mercer & jayne was created in 2011 by Laura Gillan. Working in the fashion industry for years I was always keeping current on trends and I had a fascination with gemstones that stemmed from childhood . I applied that knowledge and love of jewelry and mercer & jayne was born. I am mainly self taught but over the years have honed and refined my skills with metalsmithing classes.
mercer & jayne is a line of mixed aesthetics. Trendy and timeless, bold yet dainty, modern but with an organic feel. My jewelry is perfect for layering or worn by itself. Every piece has a delicate and classic touch.
Which of your products are your favorite?
The Essex hammered bar necklace and the Delancey dagger necklace. They are perfect layered together or look great worn solo!
What makes your process special or unique?
Every stone I use in my designs is hand picked by me. Buying stones online can be difficult so I make sure I get to see and touch everything so I know I’m using the best quality.
