As a former celebrity assistant and after several years working in the TV & Film industry, Robyn Rhodes decided to channel her creative desires and energies inward and left the business to start her own line of jewelry. Robyn was inspired by fusion of chain and stone. Making her own unique designs using glass pendants and giving them as gifts, word of mouth quickly spread and she knew she was onto something.
With such innovative creations, Robyn soon found her designs being worn by Hollywood’s elite, including Jessica Alba, Scarlett Johansson, Eva Longoria, Penelope Cruz, Sofia Bush, Kristen Bell, Jennifer Tilly, and Maria Menounos, to name a few. With the word spreading, it was inevitable that she would be featured in InStyle, ELLE, Lucky, People, Los Angeles Magazine, Rachel Ray, Seventeen, and many more. Not only has Robyn herself been interviewed on “Entertainment Tonight”. “Extra” and “Access Hollywood”, but the jewelry has also been worn on various television shows including Entourage, Entertainment Tonight, America’s Next Top Model, The OC, & Rachael Ray. Robyn has also joined forces with denim company, Rock & Republic to design jewelry for their runway shows at New York’s Fashion Week.
Robyn realizes how fortunate she is to be able to do something she is so passionate about. She is driven by a strong desire to give back any way she can. This is why Robyn is driven to work closely with a few charities that she has a particularly strong connection to.
Robyn is constantly being struck by inspiration from not only her dreams but also by things in her everyday life. It is not at all unusual for her to sketch out an idea for a design on a napkin while she’s out and about. She is the type of person that always has a number of projects in the pipeline, and is constantly thinking of new avenues to explore. And with such loyal fans, she is certain to be designing for many years to come.
