I really missed this creative outlet and wanted to redesign my life from the ground up. — Erin Flynn, Founder of Erin Flynn Fine Jewelry
LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, May 26, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a recent interview on Forbes.com, Erin Flynn explores her transition from investment banker to fine jewelry designer. Erin Flynn Fine Jewelry is an unlikely success story. Stretched between a demanding career in finance and raising two sons as a single mother, there was little room on her plate for her true passion and a two-decade scramble – jewelry design and making. She loved it so much that she willingly gave up her own well-deserved sleep to design new jewelry designs after her sons fell asleep.
Eventually, Flynn chose to follow her passion and devote herself full-time to jewelry. As she tells Forbes, “I really missed that creative outlet and wanted to redesign my life from the ground up. There comes a point in life when you don’t want to do things anymore just because that’s what you did. And I wanted to show my kids that it’s important to follow dreams and pursue the things that feel right to them. Life isn’t just about chasing money or status or career
Ready to follow her own advice and outlook on life, Flynn quit her job in finance, intending to start her own jewelry business. But she wanted to get it right and realized she needed to learn more about the dynamics and inner workings of the industry. She applied for a job in the sales room of Tiffany’s to learn all she could about the art and business of fine jewelry.
Flynn then spent a year at Tiffany & Co., followed by another two years at Cartier, meeting customers and learning how and why they bought. She loved it. She also spent those years flipping through magazines, tearing up inspirational photos, and working on sketches. She took classes to learn CAD (computer-aided design, a 3D digital model of an object) and to study diamonds and colored stones and started creating 3D designs, having them printed in plastic to see them to scale.
Then in 2021, she finally launched Erin Flynn Fine Jewelry, with three collections as well as an instantly popular custom design option, a favorite among customers with heirloom jewelry they’d love to reinvent. Customization is one of his favorite design challenges: some clients come in knowing how they’d like the piece reworked; for others, she will send a variety of templates to choose from.
In building his collections, Flynn’s goal was to rethink and recast traditional designs in unexpected ways. One standout piece is the Champagne Bubbles necklace, a favorite of Flynn’s because, much like his life path, it subverts conventional assumptions by making diamonds go up instead of down.
Her Happy Life gemstone ring was inspired by the widespread shift to working from home during the pandemic. Small stones sprinkle each face of a large gemstone, representing three phases of life: the learning phase of childhood; adulthood and the pursuit of dreams; and the last part of life where we maybe give back and help others. All stones are customizable. The Megawatt ring is a customer favorite for its unique alternation of pavé and marquis diamond clusters.
