Hardt Jewelry Showroom Opening and Spring Lookbook

Last week Moth Oddities attended the Hardt Jewelry Showroom Opening. Their new studio space is in the North Loop at Northwind Lofts. The event celebrated the launch of their Spring Line, the Enlightened Hardt Collection

Hardt Jewelry is run by our friend Anne Lenhardt Koebele. Anne's mission is to create jewelry that inspires, empowers, and encourages change. Her designs blend fashion with purpose. A portion of the proceeds from this collection are donated to RELCAIM, a LGTBQ youth organization specializing in mental healthcare. 

We couldn't leave without getting a couple pieces for ourselves! Below are our new rings from the Spring Line. I'm wearing the Delicate Double Hardt Ring in silver and the Modern Hardt Ring in brushed silver and Ian is wearing the Between Lines Ring in brushed gunmetal.

What made this event extra special was that Moth Oddities had the opportunity to work with Anne and the rest of the Hardt Jewelry team on their Spring Lookbook for the Enlightened Hardt Collection. Check out the photos below and visit Hardt Jewelry's website to purchase your favorite pieces!

This was not only our first time shooting jewelry professionally, but also the first time Ian and I worked together in a shoot as model and photographer. There was TONS of teamwork involved in getting the perfect shots that showed off the jewelry while still looking natural and peaceful. We're extremely happy with the end result and (more importantly) Anne loves the photos too! This opportunity was a great way to branch out from our usual Moth Oddities shoots and step into the realm of creating something for someone else and following their vision. We are excited to do more projects like this to continue expanding Moth Oddities as a creative brand. It was also so fun to work with Anne and hear the stories and passion behind her jewelry business. Keep it up, girl! 

Thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed the photos! Happy Cinco de Mayo :)
