The mother and daughter duo behind Avindy (that would be Avril and Cindy) got their jewelry-making start in a mountain cabin with a handful of vintage beads and gemstones. Now, of course, their production processes mostly take place in their loft studio. When Avril has a vision of something beautiful in her mind's eye, she simply sits at the design table and makes it happen. But it's a little different for Cindy, who prefers to stare at the piles of stones on her desk, letting her design be guided by the natural colors and shapes of the pieces. Both result in lovely, nature-inspired jewelry.
