A. Camarota Designs is a company that was created out of a love for fashion. When I attended college in New York, although it was not what I what attended school for...everyday I was inspired by the fashion majors walking to class in their high fashion, runway inspired clothes. Although it sounds simple, they were inspired by timeless trends, which inspired me and created a desire to design. When I had the opportunity to stay home with my three children I began to design. To me it seems the finishing crown of any woman's outfit is jewelry, which for one reason or another, is what I am drawn to the most. The final adornment a person crowns themselves with before going to start their day or outing. It speaks about that person who chose that piece with which to adorn themselves. The piece ties a person's choices together, or makes a trumping statement on its own. We come to know the pieces we put on and they comfort us in the same way. Many remind us of a memory, which makes it all the more meaningful. Because of this my jewelry inspires and motivates me. A. Camarota Designs, established in 2012, designs and creates handmade jewelry. We continue to be based in Louisville, KY. We are authentic in our craftsmanship, care and design. Many of my pieces are inspired by our heartland's rolling hills of bluegrass and Derby history. My mission however is to create quality pieces that promote a daily, positive, and quality- filled life. My pieces have meaning in the type of gemstones purposefully used, the colors purposefully used, and the overall energy of the pieces. There are affordable pieces for everyone. My collection is made from inspiring finds brought here from around the world. My jewelry is made from southern inspired findings, as well as other influences; many pieces are set with gorgeous, genuine gemstones and have a lifetime restoration service. I'm unique in that all our fine gold and silver was mined and made right here in the USA (unless otherwise described in its description)! I take great pride in this part of collaboration for my handmade fine collection. Take pride in supporting your fellow neighbor. I hope you find something you like and become inspired.

I intermittently have a blog! Whenever I have time to stop and publish in my ever seemingly, non-stop, busy life.
12-05-16 Furthering one’s life skills. Persistence is key. I’ve found in my life that nothing ever happens correctly on the first try. This applies to my school endeavors, career endeavors, and craft endeavors. Currently, I’m learning to solder. However, like many things in life, it has not been a fast learning curve. I’ve been attempting to learn and self-teach through YouTube videos for over two years now and am still a novice. That being said, I’m better than I was, and like anything else it in life it takes patience and persistence. I have faith that in time my soldering will improve to become wearable. I’ve applied my learning to solder experience to other areas of my life... and found it’s true there, too.
10-04-16 How does one find inspiration/lose inspiration for creativity in designing? In my experience I have found that living one’s life in the moment is the best inspiration and time constraints and money are the biggest hindrances. I’ve found it very motivating when my jewelry is doing well- until it becomes monotonous- or like anything else in fashion, it fades out… and then I find myself stuck. It seems I’ve heard this many times before from other artists and designers- even reading the same thing in magazines about the really famous artists; it seems to be the old artist parody. You stop creating what inspires you in the moment and start creating what you THINK other people want and you find yourself on the other side of doing what you want in your craft and you lose your drive for creativity. Therefore, I have recently come to a simple realization, after many cycles of successful bouts of what I considered great success, and drops when it feels like no one seems to be interested in my pieces for a period of time (although I am a hard critic of my success ) -and I have come to a very simple understanding about designing…don’t do it for the money or goal of success. When I meditated on it I remembered why I started designing jewelry in the first place. I remembered all the way back to the inspiration of my mom and aunts’ beautiful jewelry that I played dress up in and the awe inspiring feeling it gave me as a child. I remember being told stories and being mesmerized by the brilliance of beautifully cut gemstones and the discussions of design…and I remembered. I feel the same safe feeling of security and love when working with jewelry or looking at a well -made piece and I remember why I love jewelry design. It’s for the love and contentment of remembering well-made memories and the steadfast appreciation of dedicated craftsmanship and well-made jewelry.
I love interacting and talking with customers and connecting with them! Come check out our booth at my next art show!
