The Kansas City, MO. native Brady Legler is still a 24-year-old student at Parsons the New School for Design in New York, but that did not stop him from launching a collection of fine jewelry. Besides jewelry design, he’s also a talented abstract painter and have sold paintings worldwide.
His late Italian grandmother Lou Legler was the force behind his introduction to jewelry design. A fashion model from the 1940’s to the 1960’s she inspired him with her own independent style in jewelry. Her advice for Brady was “never match, but mix jewelry, it is much more interesting.”
Brady’s first collection includes 18 karat gold and diamond earrings inspired by pencils and paintbrushes. Says Brady “My inspiration for this collection started out with sketches of the two things I work with every day: a pencil and a paintbrush.” The collection comprises of a double-band ring with two rows of diamonds, but can be rotated to display an enamel surface for an understated look. Complete collection includes bracelets, rings, earrings and necklaces.
“My jewelry embodies the same principles as my Nana’s fashion philosophy. I like to think of my designs as elegant, smart, and always sophisticated. I want my customer to buy with longevity in mind,” said the young designer.
