With Winter, we welcomed an exciting assortment of new materials and collections. One of our favorites for the season is the brilliant beads and baubles of the latest jewelry line. We asked the design team to share more on the inspiration behind this collection of essentials, perfect for punctuating your look.
Inside Stitch: What inspired us to do a jewelry collection?
(Colleen M., Product Designer): The color palettes in our Signature Vera Bradley colors constantly inspire us. Combining them with silver and gold tones creates a style that is totally fresh, yet familiar and classic.
Inside Stitch: Why do you think the jewelry is a great fit for our customer?
Colleen: It’s fun! We wanted to offer styles that were fresh and pretty, but we also made sure that each piece was comfortable to wear. And of course, each style has a pop of color and shine.
Inside Stitch: What do you personally love from the jewelry line?
Colleen: I love the Beaded Duo. I like to stack a few bracelets on each wrist so these are the perfect accessories to help “fill” my arm. Another favorite is the Magnetic Personality Bracelet, which achieves the stacked look all on its own.
Inside Stitch: How do our jewelry styles coordinate with our handbag styles?
Colleen: Sometimes we design using only our favorite pop colors, which, paired with a handbag, coordinates in a smart and subtle way.
Inside Stitch: Where do you see this collection going?
Colleen: The future is so bright! With each new season comes a new variety of patterns and colors to inspire us, and new opportunities to add sparkle and shine. We are endlessly excited to keep designing this collection.
