I've been lucky enough to photograph this unique and handcrafted gold and diamond jewelry for the last few years. Cindy Boudov of Boudov Designs, Los Angeles, has worked for and is certified by the GIA, and now designs and crafts her own line of fine artisan diamond jewelry. What really caught my eye is that these pieces are not just the ubiquitous, clear, bright diamond solitaires you get from a standard jewelry store. These are one-of-a-kind pieces all hand-made. Colored diamonds, agate, rose, yellow and white gold, as well as raw diamond slices [my personal favorite] are featured throughout the collection. They're so dramatic and eye-catching, I really had to stop and look at these pieces while I shot them. No two are ever the same, and they are simply gorgeous, heirloom-grade pieces. Living in LA and with a studio in Venice Beach, her pieces have also been picked up by celebrities in the area over the years.
These photos are intentional and brand-conscience, and were styled by Alva Horton of Gingham Creative (marketing & branding company based in NC). My commercial photography has grown by leaps and bounds over the past few years, and although I love shooting weddings, they're such a nice departure from that. I enjoy being diversified in my work, and I hope to continue to do so. I'm humbled and honored to be a part of this creative team. Look out for more photos and collaborations soon!
