There’s no denying that bomber jackets are having a moment. I have been watching this trend since last year but just couldn’t see myself wearing one. So thanks very much for this challenge to push me out of my comfort zone. There are a lot of people who said they can’t believe I don’t have one. Yup, I had to order this Black Floral Rib Detail Bomber Jacket on Choies just for this guest post.

I like to dress up my casual looks so I picked a black lace cropped top to layer underneath, then a red leather skirt to play with the floral prints on the jacket. I kept the rest of the outfit simple and basic, classic but never boring black to showcase the jacket. After all it is the star of the show!

“To me, jewelry is personal and is so much more then just an accessory. There is no right way to wear it, the magic is truly in the mix! Each mix you create is an extension of who you are, and is the expression of your personal style. All you have to do is have fun with it.” Excellent words! I only wish I had said them! But that quote is not from me, although it so accurately summarized my philosophy of style. 😉 It is from the owner of Imperfect Grace, Krista.

Made in Detroit Fine Jewelry Imperfect Grace interviewed by Grace Liang at http://colorandgrace.com

Maybe because of our super similar ways of thinking, I fell in love with this fine jewelry line Imperfect Grace when I first laid my eyes on it. And then, when I got some of their items, I just wear my IRA necklace like non-stop as you can see below. It not only makes me feel pretty, but also makes me proud. I am very proud that I am wearing a Detroit made item of fine jewelry.

“Are you someone who likes to mix and layer pieces from your jewelry collection – old with new, classic pieces with more edgy ones, simple and understated pieces with bolder ones?

Made in Detroit Fine Jewelry Imperfect Grace interviewed by Grace Liang at http://colorandgrace.com

In the past few years I realized that I’ve grown to depend on a few select jewelry pieces for their versatility and meaning to me. They have become my staples and mixing them with others from my jewelry box gives me the opportunity to express my individual style.

Made in Detroit Fine Jewelry Imperfect Grace interviewed by Grace Liang at http://colorandgrace.com

This notion of ultimate versatility is what motivated me to design a collection rooted in simple elegance and timeless edge. I wanted to design unique pieces different from anything else you own, but that would complement your jewelry and inspire you to express yourself, after all – the beauty is in the mix.

My other big source of inspiration in creating this collection has been my heritage. I was born and raised in Ukraine until my family immigrated to metro Detroit. In designing this collection, I wanted to pay homage to the masterful stitching of the Ukrainian embroidery that I grew up with. I am fortunate to work with a talented team of metalsmiths in Detroit, who have turned my sketches into fine jewelry made with the highest quality craftsmanship. It is important to me to retain production of Imperfect Grace brand locally to showcase and support the manufacturing talent in the thriving city of Detroit.

My obsession with jewelry developed at a young age – I collected it, obsessed over it, and created my own designs out of any material I could get my hands on. After graduating from college and landing my first job in the corporate world, I started filling my creative void by taking metalsmithing classes at the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit. It felt nothing short of empowering to hold a torch and bring my designs to life. After my move to Chicago, I continued exploring various metalsmithing techniques by taking metals classes at a local art center.

Launching Imperfect Grace is a realization of a life-long dream, and I hope that you will find a piece that will complement your own jewelry collection and will inspire you to exemplify your individual style in a whole new way.

If you are wondering about the name Imperfect Grace…

Over the years, I’ve learned time and time again that striving for perfection is not only boring, but also is a waste of time. After all, it is our imperfections that make us who we are and beautiful in our own way, let’s embrace them. Grace, or that simple elegance, is a quality that I truly admire in others, and aspire for all of my jewelry to represent.”

What wise and powerful words! We treasure something because of the connection this particular thing has made with our feelings. The stories behind a piece make it so special to wear. My IRA necklace will be one that I keep forever. I may eventually give it to one of my grand-daughters when they grow up but it’s become part of the family and isn’t leaving it anytime soon.
