Local Jewelry Designer Creates Bold Baubles

Bold and beautiful. It’s definitely the name of a daytime soap opera (that I indulge in from time to time!), but the words could also be used to describe the type of jewelry that Houston designer Jessie Dugan makes.

When talking about what inspired some of the best-selling pieces in her line, Dugan points to a rock collection passed down to her from an uncle.

“He left me his rock collection, and a lot of them were Texas-based rocks. I was always fascinated with that because I don’t think you really see that much natural stone,” Dugan says. “It’s got a little bit of glitz and glamor to make it more elevated, and it’s an easy way to make a statement.”

The statement Dugan’s jewelry is making seems to be pretty loud. Aside from her background in high fashion, she’s also got genuine rockers wearing her glitzy rocks! You can find out who and and read the full story on CultureMap.
