New! Contour Collection by My Sunset Road

I was delighted to receive a package from My Sunset Road yesterday! Courtney has been working away on a new collection based on a series of line drawings. The "Contour Collection" is much more minimal & modern than the previous (and also fabulous) tribal pieces ...

Courtney Filer-Dougal is the designer and metal-smith behind My Sunset Road.

"One day, about 10 years ago, I decided to make a necklace as a gift for a family member. This is worth mentioning since I was a painter at the time! Making that very first piece sparked a love of a craft I had never considered and I now do it every day.

As a young mom I look for pieces that are both special and everyday wearable. I'm a t-shirt and jeans type of girl but I like my t-shirts modern and edgy and my jeans to take me from day to evening. So that's what I make. Each design from My Sunset Road has it's own story, is inspired by a recent trip to a museum or my love of history and ancient cultures. Each piece is also extremely easy to wear and really and truly goes with just about everything in your closet.

I am committed to being a socially responsible and eco-friendly business. Most designs are made with recycled sterling silver. I also reuse and recycle all of my scrap metal and ship your items in 100% recycled gift boxes and mailers.

I love what I do and hope that will comes across to each of my customers in the quality of my work as well as in my customer service. My Sunset Road strives to bring you original designs that you reach for everyday."

A wide assortment of the new earrings and necklaces are currently available in the gallery and also thru our online shop!
