Style Q&A: Christina Jervey

The Mount Pleasant metalsmith behind Christina Jervey Handcrafted Jewelry is all about great jeans, practical-but-pretty footwear, and supporting local artists

The “Rainbow Sapphires” ring ($595) and a custom sapphire pendant and aquamarine ring, all in 14K gold

Q What’s new for your line?
A
The rings I have coming out this fall incorporate pops of color. However, I am moving away from production- based jewelry and focusing more on custom designs—I love working with clients one-on-one.

Q What are your beauty must-haves?
A
Lately, I’ve been using Erno Laszlo’s Hydra-Therapy cleansing oil [above] and Sea Mud deep cleansing bar. They leave my skin feeling clean and moisturized.

Q How do you spend your free time?
A
My family and I love exploring, biking, going to the beach, and traveling—we recently got back from our 11th annual trip to Maine.

Q What do you collect?
A
Art and anything handmade. I’m currently working with Shannon Wood [whose oil-on-canvas Sullivan’s is above] on a custom painting.

Q You play a lot of tennis—what are your workout essentials?
A
Athleta’s “Sunlover UPF Tank,” which has a cute overlap detail on the back that helps cool me down, and my Hydro Flask water bottle—it keeps water cold for days!

Q Go-to shoes for daily wear?
A
Leather Andre Assous espadrilles—they’re simple; stylish; and most importantly, comfortable.

Q Favorite source for interior decor?
A
Celadon’s buyers do an amazing job sourcing unique, handmade pieces.

Q Describe your personal style.
A
It’s very casual, and comfort is essential. I live in jeans; currently, my favorite brand is Frame—the “Le Boy Jean Gusset Step” [above] is so fun.
