“She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs. ‘Time’ for her isn’t something to fight against. Her life flows clean, with passion, like fresh water.” – A quote by Roman Payne from The Wanderess.

From the photographer: There is something enchanting and mesmerizing about the natural beauty of a woman. Femininity is freedom, strength, grace, passion, and depth. That’s exactly the type of richness I wanted to capture through this color palette. Deep and saturated tones of black, charcoal, and plum coupled with the soft and light peach, cream, and lavender express the complexity of everything that is feminine. A beauty of a woman is something that is profound and that should be celebrated. I love how these images are able to express both the gentleness and lightness of a woman’s features and curves mixed with the depth and richness of her soul.

From Gorjana: We have always had a bridal customer and I’ve wanted to expand to that market for some time now, so a collaboration with Jen from Green Wedding Shoes was a perfect fit to tap into that market. The bridal market is a natural fit for the brand especially when it comes to bridesmaids jewelry. Our pieces have always made great bridesmaids gifts because they are so versatile, unique, and classic so they can be worn after the big day.

For the Green Wedding Shoes Collection, I wanted to create pieces that would take bridal and bridesmaid jewelry to the next level. I love the delicate nature of the pieces in this collection. They truly make for beautiful accents and will make any bride or bridesmaid feel unique on the big day. I was really excited about working with Green Wedding Shoes on this collaboration and getting to make Jen’s vision a reality. You can shop the Green Wedding Shoes x gorjana Collection here.

A bit about the collection from Jen Campbell the founder + editor of Green Wedding Shoes: For Green Wedding Shoes’ first collaboration with Gorjana, I set out to create a unique collection of jewelry for modern brides, bohemian brides, and their bridesmaids that allowed the mixing and matching of pieces to create just the right look for each wedding party. I also wanted pieces that would easily translate into daily wear after the big day, a huge bonus for anyone who’s been in a wedding!

As we kicked off the design process, I drew my inspiration for the collection from nature and textures. I just love the beautiful lace details of a wedding gown, the raw edges of druzy stones, organic-leaf elements, and tiny, delicate details with lots of layers. Then I worked with Gorjana to pair these timeless elements with some of my current loves for this season: rose gold, druzy stones, unique rings, and jewelry headpieces.
