Designers I Love: Featuring Cannon Lewis


Cannon Lewis, a native Texan, merges her love for texture, colors and the slightly avante-garde with a sensitive approach to life and style. A metal class in the 8th grade sparked a passion for jewelry and she began to dabble with metals and stones alongside her studio art interests. By her junior year of high school Cannon Lewis formed her namesake company, and by her junior year of college, while pursuing a degree in art history, she had accounts with Barney’s New York, Stanley Korshak and other fine stores. Cannon now lives in Los Angeles where she spends her time sketching, laughing & walking.

In my very first blog post I wrote about what inspired me to start making jewelry, and being invited to a Cannon Lewis trunk show (thank you Stacey!) was very much one of those things. Her pieces were so simple and beautiful, and I longed for each and every one of them. I love her story and how her line has evolved. She was also very lovely, both inside and out. I ended up purchasing two necklaces and a pair of earrings, which, along with her never ending creativity, continue to inspire me.
