REDWOOD CITY, CA
Ever since she was a small child, Lavender Crush designer and owner, Bridgette Tritz, has loved to create. Experimenting with many different media over the years, she received a BFA in Fibers from Maryland Institute College of Art, and then went on to explore her love of fashion.
For almost a decade, Bridgette worked in the sales end of the fashion industry, both retail and wholesale. While she enjoyed being the first to spot new fashion trends, and to see behind the scenes at boutiques across the country, she felt unfulfilled with the lack of creativity in her work. Knowing she needed to tap back into her creative side, Bridgette spent her spare time collaging, drawing, sewing, and finally, jewelry making. Creating jewelry proved to be the perfect fit, combining her experience in the fashion industry with her love of crafting things by hand, and her attention to detail.
Self-taught, Bridgette handcrafts every Lavender Crush piece in her home studio. 14k gold-filled chain and wire are accented with timeless gemstones for effortless, everyday style. Each gemstone piece arrives with information about the positive properties of its stone, with the goal of spreading positive energy and confidence to everyone.
