Pamela Huizenga Talks Finding Jewelry Inspiration From Natural Stones

Meet the area local behind Pamela Huizenga Jewelry. 

When did you start designing jewelry and why? 

Although I have been in the jewelry industry since I was 19, I only started creating my own designs about seven years ago. I had gotten back into cutting stones after a long hiatus and wanted to create jewelry pieces for them. Combining different stones with their unique colors, textures and shapes is a challenge I truly enjoy.

What can people expect from your upcoming collection?

Ah, that’s a secret. Actually, my collections are constantly evolving and recycling. I tend to move in color families more than “looks.” My jewelry is very stone intensive. I try to keep the metal work subtle and allow the stones to be the main focus. I am working on a lot of greens and blues right now as well as oranges. Thrown in are some very cool wearable antiquities.

What trends are you loving for fall?

For fall I am a jewel-tone lover…I think it is timeless.

How do you stay inspired to create new pieces?

The stones inspire me. When I am feeling stuck I just pull out a tray of stones and let my mind go. It doesn’t take long for a stone or group of stones to inspire a new piece or collection.

What’s your favorite local lunch spot?

I don’t have a favorite place for lunch, but one of my favorite dinner spots is District Table [and Bar]. If they were open for lunch, I’d be there a few times a week.

What’s your favorite boutique to shop at locally?
An all-time favorite for me is April Daze [Boutique]. Our teenage daughters love to shop there.
