Q&A w/ Hila (shop owner)

1.) Tell us a little about HPerl Jewelry.

HPerl is a result of years of working in TV, believe it or not. I graduated with a Masters Degree in communication and journalism and started a career in TV production. I went into journalism because I believed it to be an extremely important profession, which would allow me to be creative in my daily duties. No such luck. After a few years of running down long corridors with a crumbling pile of tapes in my arms, I decided to take a break. I went back to writing, which was always my true love, and started taking classes in ceramics, flower arranging, sewing, everything I always wanted to experience, but was too busy to. Our small New York apartment was filled with wonky bowls and odd looking bouquets. Then I took a jewelry design class at the 92nd Street Y, and fell in love.
HPerl is the result of that process, as well continuing my education at FIT and working at my little home studio ( a little niche between the living room and the bedroom). I sold some pieces to friends, but it took a long time before I felt I was ready to call myself a professional and start selling my jewelry online.



2.) What inspires you to create some unique pieces?

I must admit, I’m a very spontaneous designer. At FIT they teach you to sketch and render your designs, and then create the model and finally the piece itself. I don’t think I’ve ever done that. I have an image in my mind and I sit at my studio and create it, carving it in wax or working in metal. I get inspired by everyday things and simple shapes, and often, by other artists and other forms of art.

3.) What type of guy or girl do you envision wearing your pieces?

The guy or girl wearing my pieces? Well, they’re gorgeous of course! And they value clean lines, elegant design, artistic expression, and possess a great sense of style, and more importantly, a sense of humor.

4.) What's your fave piece in your shop?

Tough question…I like the Pebble Earrings very much, which is why they are the piece I chose for the giveaway. They are the perfect example of my design process. My father in law gave me some fine silver pellets and when I opened the box I saw tiny drops of shiny silver. I immediately thought of pebbles and created the Pebble Earrings in a few minutes. They’re one of my best sellers.

The other piece that I’m quite attached to, and in fact wear on a daily basis, is the Wings Ring. I love sculptured form and the solid weight of it.



5.) What's your own personal style like?

My personal style is, well, personal. I don’t own a lot of brand name fashion but I will buy the occasional designer piece if it captivates me, and wear it with one of my hand-knitted scarves. I like to be comfortable, but I do envy anyone who can strut in 6 inch heels, and secretly wish I could be like them. In my house there are some quality art and antique pieces next to Ikea bookshelves, but somehow it all fits together to create a cozy feeling. That’s it, then. If I had to define my style in one word, it would be “cozy”.

Some of my fave pieces from the shop (other than the Giveaway earrings):

  12. Now following your blog publicly on google.

    Oh, hperl, how do I love thee, let me count the ways...
    The pebble earrings and the Star of David ring, ahavah cuff, and Birth of Venus necklace are my favorites.

  13. I'm already an hperl facebook follower. Do I still get another entry? I can unfollow and then refollow just to be obnoxious :D

    Another thing from the shop:
    I'd totally get the crater ring and the Starry Night ring as wedding bands or BFF rings or something. Or the crater/starry night set rings. Those two look like they'd fit together like super-hero power rings and you'd say "With our powers combined..." and then be awesome and laugh a lot.
