follow friday :: jewelry by white owl

If you are a lover of jewelry that stands apart from the crowd, then you will fall in LOVE with White Owl. Christina Spivak and Courtney Spivak are the two sisters behind this beautiful collection made up of new and recycled/repurposed materials.

The sisters behind White Owl :: Christina & Courtney Spivak

I love their vintage necklaces, lace earrings and their romantic color palette making each piece perfect to wear with ANYTHING! Pretty much I love every piece they have designed! Every design they create is feminine, delicate and perfect to give or receive. I got the chance to interview these talented ladies about their company and craft and here is what they had to say.

When and how did you first become interested in jewelry?
We have always made jewelry for ourselves. I don’t really recall when we started, exactly.

How long have you been designing jewelry?
We both have experimented with jewelry making for years, but only recently started selling our creations.

What is your favorite piece in your collection?
 Christina: My favorite piece right now is the Muse lace necklace- Although it’s made of lace,  I think it’s simplicity and the grey color really give it a modern edge.

Courtney: I love all our pieces, but my  current favorites are the tulle, ribbon and chain necklaces I have been working on, like the Gabrielle Bonheur- I also really love the muse lace necklace!

Favorite time of day to create?
 Courtney:  Anytime! But because I have a day job, usually I work at night!

Christina: I’m totally a night owl, so I  do much of my designing at night, but I do love to set up a table in the garden on really pretty days.

What is a typical day like for you both?
 Courtney: Get up, grab some coffee, go teach a few classes (I teach film studies and audio production at a local college), come home and visit with friends & make jewelry.

Christina: Coffee and a trip to the Post office, then  a trip to the flea market or resale shop,  a little socializing, and then it’s back home to dye lace, make jewelry and take pictures.

What's your biggest accomplishment so far?

You absolutely cannot go without....
Courtney: Good accessories! The size of my purse, jewelry and shoe collection is alarming!

Christina: I am big on accessories too, but especially earrings!

Where are some places you are scheduled to travel to this year?
Courtney: I just got back from Manhattan, and next I’m headed to Cannes, France for the film fest! I am also planning a visit to Atlanta, Georgia to visit our brother!

Christina: I’m going to Cannes too, and  thinking of a trip to Quebec in late summer.

What is your favorite type of cake or cupcake?
Courtney: Chocolate cupcake, for sure!
Christina: I’m not sure if it counts, but I love brownies. We spent weeks one year perfecting our ultimate decadent brownie recipe and  it beat any cake I’ve ever had!

Coffee or tea?
