We caught up with jewelry designer Pamela on set shooting the images for her Gilt sale (launching today at 9PM ET) to give us a peek into how her jewelry is truly an alchemy of her aesthetics.  She won the CFDA Swarovski Award for Accessory Design in 2013 and has since solidified her brand as a go-to for New York City’s cool girls. Like a magic trick, her made-in-Manhattan jewelry can transform your look from ordinary to otherworldly and she shows us how to perfect it by styling—and modeling—her pieces as she rocks them in real life.
