Mineralogy 2016 Lookbook
When Theresa Cowan, owner and designer of Chicago's latest jewelry design sensation, Mineralogy, asked me to photograph her fresh collection for 2016- I jumped at the opportunity. I ran across her work first through the Lou & Grey store opening in Lake View last spring and then again through an ETSY shoot this past fall. Come to find out, this lady was picked up by anthropologie and several of her most recent necklaces are available via their online store!
The 2016 Mineralogy collection is poetic, relaxed and inspired. These pieces are impressive in their range and can be worn as as dainty accents or as stunning statement pieces that shine and sparkle as nature intended.
Simultaneously soft and edgy, Theresa's design work is ultimately feminine in the most wonderfully modern way. Through several conversations about her philosophy of style and design (Theresa holds a BFA from SAIC), we felt her lookbook should reflect the same easygoing grace and creative discipline of the collection.

The muted tones, soft light and sharp focus of the photographs were chosen to respect the delicate metalwork and precise craftsmanship of these pieces in the hopes of reflecting their imaginative, dream-nature.
