Arkansas native Ashley Childers, who is the designer behind the Emporium Home furnishings line, recently launched a new jewelry line. The eponymous brand features necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings, all of which have been hand-sketched by Ashley in her Little Rock studio. She then partners with artisans around the globe to create the designs and personally selects all the semi-precious stones used. “Jewelry is personal, and it’s a reflection of our style. Most women have signature pieces they wear almost every day—pieces that have special meaning to them or that make a statement and show off who they are. I designed the Ashley Childers collection with those things in mind,” she says. The collection is currently available exclusively online at ashleychilders.com until February 2020 when it will be available in boutiques nationwide. ashleychilders.com
