Designer Profile- Georgia Heraty (Social Experiment)

Those of you who follow me on Twitter and Instagram may have noticed some very excited posts, pictures, and tweets about a collection of cocktail rings I have been nurturing. Georgia Heraty of Social Experiment graciously agreed to answer all of my questions so that I could feature her and her work on my blog.

After taking a class on jewelry making in 2009, Georgia began making rings for her family and girlfriends as a hobby. As demand grew, she decided to reach out to a few local boutiques in her hometown of Vancouver, to great success. Currently her work is carried at Barefoot Contessa, Violet Hill Boutique, Muse Social Fashion House, and Live Yoga Boutique. But luckily for those of us outside of B.C., in October 2011, she decided to start a shop on Etsy!

Social Experiment truly was a social experiment, Georgia chose the name to reflect the way her business started- as an experiment to see if people would be interested in her product. Each design takes inspiration from the west coast she calls home. She describes the design process as being very exciting, particularly finding new materials and products to work with, and is currently very interested in learning more about gems and their meanings. In addition, she is working on creating seasonal collections, and having themes attached to a lookbook, but is taking her time with the creative process, learning as she goes. 

Since my first order in early spring, I have been  slowly building up a collection of Georgia's rings. I absolutely adore how the natural stones have their own unique and beautiful shapes, and the way the gold wire creates a piece that can be perfectly casual, or the perfect piece for an evening out. And I'm not the only one who is enamoured! Olivia of StyleStruck, Vickie of Adventures in Fashion, and many others have also been spotted proudly wearing Social Experiment rings.
