It started with a piece of Rope~

A little bit Bondage for your body.

Orly Genger by Jaclyn Mayer began with one necklace in 2009; a piece that symbolizes the impetus for a vibrantly distinct jewelry collection. Artist Orly Genger was about to open her largest exhibition to date at the Indianapolis Museum of Art when jewelry designer Jaclyn Mayer visited her studio in Long Island City. Mayer decided to make a necklace out of the rope lying around the studio floor. Genger wore the piece to her opening and grabbed the attention of top fashion editors, as well as coveted influencers in the jewelry industry. When all this happened within the course of a few weeks, both girls realized they had something uniquely their own which could be developed into a successful brand and fruitful business.

Since its start, OGJM has graced the pages of Vogue, ELLE, Harpers Bazaar, Glamour, Marie Claire, and Surface to name a few top-tier publications. The collection has been featured online on Style.com, Refinery 29, Daily Candy, The Cut, NBC’s The Thread, along with countless other fashion blogs. OGJM has also had the privilege to collaborate with other well-respected designers within the fashion industry including VPL, WHIT, and Lela Rose. Genger and Mayer have created the jewelry for the past 8 consecutive VPL runway shows, 2 WHIT shows, and the Spring 2011 runway show for Lela Rose, proving their versatility and credibility as designers. Most recently, OGJM collaborated with J.Crew in Spring 2012 to produce mass marketed jewelry that is not only artfully crafted, but also affordable; this wonderful experience ultimately pushed their design concepts even further, and increased the designers’ exposure to an even larger consumer base.

      I feel like I could wear any of the pieces and be happy with them. Even though M isn’t a shibori fan (just scarves, occasionally.) The pieces say “I am bound to you”, “you have me tied up”, etc. 😀
