F&B Inc: What is your favorite piece from Frisk right now?
Donna Rubino: I really love the GardenCuffs from our spring line- they’re so fun and whimsical. We usually do a statement cuff each season, and I always want one. I also really love our new raw, crystal quartz rings. They looks great stacked.
F&B Inc: What has been your biggest accomplishment with Frisk thus far?
Donna Rubino: It’s been an amazing accomplishment to run a company with my daughters for nearly ten years, and open a boutique in Boulder- near the University of Colorado- featuring our designs. I love the space we’ve created- it really tells a comprehensive story of our jewelry. And we’ve kept it true to our concept from the start- old keepsakes reinvented. We love introducing young shoppers to these one-of-a-kind designs.
F&B Inc: What inspiration is behind Frisk pieces?Donna Rubino: Inspiration is everywhere. We find it in travel, experiences, and family. Movies, songs, and eras. We are also inspired by Hollywood glamour and chic Bohemian style, by the types of things we would want to wear.
F&B Inc: What are your favourite fashion/ accessory trends right now?
Donna Rubino: I’m in love with pastels and florals for Spring. I also think the sheer trend is very wearable and ladylike if done well.
F&B Inc: What was the design process like for your SS14 collection?
Donna Rubino: We knew we wanted to create something super feminine and fabulous. After a cold fall and winter we wanted our designs to actually feel like warm, bright weather. The Garden Cuffs were the first piece we designed for the collection, and the rest of the jewelry was built around the concept of a “summer garden party” you can wear. A bouquet of flowers on your wrist- a corsage that you can have for years to come.
It’s pretty hard not to become officially obsessed with Frisk Jewelry as their pieces are adorable, beautiful, old and yet new!
