Local Eclectic Blog Photography | Meeting with Carrie Elizabeth Jewelry

For the past few weeks I've been working with the incredible Local Eclectic, an online jewelry store that features indie designers and is based out of the West Loop in Chicago. I love getting to work with brands and businesses that have focuses that align with my own and they certainly do that - Local Eclectic works with emerging indie designers that pour their hearts into their work, providing gorgeous, small-run pieces that are well made and accessible. They also do limited editions and collaborations with their designers, creating jewelry that pushes the boundaries and redefines what art can be. Honestly, could they be any cooler?

I photographed this meeting between indie designer Carrie Elizabeth Jewelry and Local Eclectic's owner Alexis where they went over Carrie's new line and choose what Local Eclectic would add to their shop. It was my first time being introduced to Carrie and her line and ohhh my gosh, is her stuff gorgeous. Dainty, unique and in soft pastels that go with everything you could ever want to pair her pieces with (psst - this new line just launched at Local Eclectic)!

Thanks so much to Carrie Elizabeth Jewelry and Local Eclectic for asking me to photograph this super fun meeting!
