Mother-daughter founders, Avril & Cindy, combine their passion for found objects steeped in history, design, and nature. Together they create Avindy jewelry with a reverence to years of world travel and a philosophy built on the beauty of handmade craftsmanship. Avindy jewelry incorporates a distinct blend of gemstones, diamonds, antiqued metals, intricate chains, rare beads and hand carved pieces.
Over the years, Avril, a family business owner and Cindy, a trademark lawyer, took time away from their careers to nurture their creativity at the family cabin nestled high in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The first Avindy collection was inspired by a worldly mix of antique fine jewelry, bohemian trade beads, intricate African seed bead work, the subtle textures of nature, and an affinity for layering textiles, chains, and leather. It was the artisanal blend of these elements that lay the foundation for what is now Avindy’s signature look.
Continuing to thrive nearly two decades later, Avindy jewelry is handcrafted in their historic loft studio in Atlanta, Georgia. Avril and Cindy continue to employ ancient metalsmithing and beading techniques, while always keeping an eye toward the flair of the season. Each piece reflects a level of artistry and an adherence to the company’s heritage that keeps their devoted clientele collecting Avindy year after year.
