“I work backwards,” says Devon Pavlovits by way of explaining the process for creating her jewelry line. “Once I happen upon a material with a texture, shape, or color that inspires me, I’ll design a piece of jewelry from there.

“I work backwards,” says Devon Pavlovits by way of explaining the process for creating her jewelry line. “Once I happen upon a material with a texture, shape, or color that inspires me, I’ll design a piece of jewelry from there. I can’t imagine working the other way around.” That go-with-the-flow approach is also how she ended up in the accessories business to begin with. The daughter of a textile artist and a lighting designer, she originally rebelled to study psychology—but quickly followed in her parents’ footsteps and enrolled at the Otis College of Art and Design and later the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. It was there that Devon started dabbling in jewelry for herself—but she didn’t consider it as a career until the compliments began rolling in. Soon, the Etsy orders started rolling in as well. As she remembers, “I just kept saying yes and then figuring it out later.”

Figure it out she did—her collection pairs semi-precious stones, irregularly shaped pearls, and hand-blown glass (made by her super-talented brother) to make completely original forms, which range from delicate to sculptural. At the end of the day, it’s still all about her gut instincts. “One day, I’ll want to wear minimal, gold pieces, and the next I’ll want to wear something super-extra,” she says. “So I make all those things.”
