Creating some one-of-a-kind pieces for our next collection. We'll be debuting a few Monday, June 27th at Strongwater as we partner with Loose Films to raise money for the victims and families affected by the tragedy in Orlando. There will be music, food, drinks and other local vendors to shop. Portions of the proceeds will be donated to Equality Florida through Stonewall Columbus. We'll be there 6:30-9:30pm. Come help us help others!
Had an amazing time shooting our Holiday 2015 Lookbook with Adam Elkins (@bigmanjapan), Brian Kaiser (@brianmkaiser) and Amber Rapier (@ambrapier). Full shots coming soon!
Thanks again to everyone who came out, bought jewels, had drinks & rocked a Chertova tattoo. We love you & the Columbus Flea.
We took a few pieces of our new collection to London this week for a fun wear-test! The Chertova Eye Rings got to meet the London Eye. It was a beautiful week filled with amazing food, pressed juices, and LOTS of shopping. We can't wait to get the photoshoot for this next collection wrapped up so we can share it with you all finally!
This weekend, Chertova spend some time getting back to the earth. Staying on a ranch in Northern California, we picked fresh fruit, befriended farm animals and pulled inspiration from California's golden fields and lush succulents.
Owner and Designer, Rachel Chertoff spent the day today making bracelets with children from the Great Expectations program in Cincinnati. She also got to talk to them about the jewelry making process. The children in this non profit organization are able to come participate in camp-like activities because of vouchers given from the government. This program was started with the help of volunteers and the government because of the severe poverty in the area. It was such a beautiful experience getting to work with these kids and helping them make their own bracelets. We want to give a huge thank you to Great Expectations for giving us the opportunity to meet these wonderful angels.
Come visit Chertova this weekend at Made & Co Gallery for Gallery Hop. We have new products to show off, including sterling silver Ohio rings.
Just a glimpse of exciting things to come.
Thank you to everyone who came out and saw us at the Spring Flea - we had an absolute blast and hope you did too. We are so grateful for all the support you guys always give us. Our zodiac necklaces nearly sold out! Here are a few snaps from the flea.
With some Columbus OH local sales - Columbus Spring Flea on May 3rd at Seventh Son Brewery and a pop up shop on May 8th at Made by NGO - we have come up with a new overall business plan which means there are lots of new items and affordable prices! Take a look at some of the behind the scene pictures and stay tuned for many more!
Chertova spent the weekend in Brooklyn; visiting boutiques, fleas, vintage stores, soaking up all the inspiration we could. We met some amazing designers & can't wait to go back and shop the Brooklyn Flea's again!
What an amazing week! We successfully launched our KickStarter and had a weekend full of warm weather.
Hoping these good vibes continue all throughout spring!
We've caved and made a kickstarter to help us cover some of our last few start up expenses. These are mostly fees for trade shows we've been accepted into where we can get our jewelry and apparel in front of the right buyers. We know if we can get to these shows we can really grow our business to where we know it can be. Please consider helping us and clicking the link below to donate!
