Green Spot Studio Oscar Challenge

Can a small jeweler make a piece of jewelry that will be worn to the Oscars? We think so, and we’ll soon find out as we follow the design and journey of an Oscar-worthy piece in the Green Spot Studio Oscar Challenge.

Green Spot Studio's Tracey Jenkins Darji, one of Boston’s most renowned jewelers, has set off to make a piece of jewelry that will be worn to the Oscars. Just to give you a sense of her amazing work, I’ve scattered photos of a few of her existing pieces through this post. Indulge is thrilled to track the design, creation and travels of her Oscar-worthy piece (still in the developmental phases) over the next few months as it makes its way up and down red carpets, shines through photo shoots and eventually ends up at the Oscars.

Tracey writes on her jewelry blog, “A fashion designer can spend 1 or 2k on fabric and labor and come up with an amazing gown. Jewelers, on the other hand, usually spend at least 100k, on the low end. Celebrities are so excited to say their jewelry is worth 2M and up. How can small jewelers compete with that?”

But, she has taken on the task and writes, “Over the next couple of weeks I will outline the entire challenge, share my design ideas, budget, materials, and thought behind why I am making my choices… and then the photos will start coming!”

Tracey! We are thrilled for you!

Tracey is a celebrity in my eyes for sitting with my fiancé and designing and creating my incredible engagement ring (ok... since you INSISTED on seeing it- here is a picture of my engagement ring :), but her exceptional experience in the jewelry world goes beyond my ring. In 2002, Tracey obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a minor in Industrial Design, following studies that were concentrated in Florence, Italy and Boston, MA but also brought her throughout North America and Europe. After a brief but successful stint as a consultant in the Corporate Art world, she returned to school and her earliest passion, graduating the North Bennet Street School’s prestigious two-year Jewelry Making & Repair program in the spring of 2005.

We'll be following Tracey's progress as this amazing piece of jewelry evolves!
