From a coveted studio in the CFDA Incubator, come the rough rocking metals and natural stones of Gemma Redux. The designer behind the smashing brand is Rachel Dooley, a former engineer and law student who took a short break from studying for the Bar exam to make a necklace, and never went back. Months later, her jewelry was cropping up in editorials for super major publications. Nearly each item I looked at in her webstore had the annotation, Featured in Nylon, Featured in T Magazine, Featured in Paper Magazine etc… Yesterday she dropped a film for the Spring 2012 collection that hit us close to home. So we asked her a few questions about the rocks that she’s got.
