Etsy Favorite: Rocks Paper Metal and a Giveaway!


Today I bring you another fabulous Etsy shop I recently found. What caught my eye about the Rocks Paper Metal shop were the neon colors and fun friendship bracelets these two gals create. Truly unique and so funky! Let me give you a little background about Diana and Kat...


1. Name of Business, Your Names, Ages, Year of Creation
Rocks Paper Metal by Diana Rochford and Kat Leone. Established in 2011.

2. What inspired you ladies to open a jewelry shop?
We are long time jewelry designers who crossed paths working at an accessory company in Los Angeles. Working together we had great fun and realized we both shared the same desire to create our own designs, start our own business and drive to succeed. We bring the experience of working on many major contemporary, fine jewelry, and mass market brands such as Steve Madden, Disney, Kitson, Urban Outfitters and Forever 21. After spending ridiculous amount of hours trolling the internet for jewelry trends, we saw a gap in the market for jewelry trend forecasting and decided to start our own site. From there we couldn't help but start a jewelry line that would would aim to always to be slightly ahead of the trend and we haven't looked back.

We started our line with a very neon tribal vibe and have since introduced glitzy neon crystal and cord items. Our newest addition is a mini capsule collection of pastels, florals and brights.

3. Where do you find your inspiration?
Our jewelry trend forecasting website (RocksPaperMetal.com) keeps us on our toes. We never run out of ideas and are always talking about our next collection.. We scour the web and blogosphere for emerging trends, color pallets and love connecting with other jewelry designers. We both joke we have constant 1 minute love affairs with jewelry pieces. One minute we are drooling over a Pamela Love piece, and then we see a great designer on Etsy and our love gets transferred. We are always in love with the latest original idea we see from high end designers to the crazy stuff you see in Santee Alley, downtown Los Angeles. Its impossible to get bored with jewelry!
