Jewelry designer Pamela Love on mysticism as inspiration and her dream client, Neil Young

NYC-based jewelry designer Pamela Love didn't start out in the accessory business -- her background is in film, and she got work as a stylist for photo and video shoots. But when she found that other artists' works didn't embody her own unique sense of style, Love went off on her her own, designing jewelry out of her home in Brooklyn.

Since this move into the design world in 2009, Love has created jewelry for HBO's True Blood, collaborated with the likes of Topshop, Zac Posen and Spike Jonez, and overseen an apparel line for J. Crew. In advance of her trunk show this Saturday, June 30, at Goldyn, 2040 West 30th Avenue, the artist spoke with Westword about her work and the inspiration of the Southwest and religious ceremonies.
