White Moth Jewelry


Wilton, CT
Growing up in Wilton, CT, Tracey Heinemann would often take her mom’s old jewelry to be redesigned. “My passion has always been in fashion, and my addiction has always been jewelry,” she says. So after working in marketing and advertising—and realizing her heart just wasn’t in it—in 2010, Heinemann started sourcing stones and vintage pieces and combining them with interesting chains. In 2013, her brand took on a more contemporary look as she sketched streamlined, architecturally inspired designs. “I’ll see legs on a table or the shape of a faucet and love the way the metal is edged,” she says. “I think about how I can take part of that shape and turn it into a bracelet or a cuff.” Her pieces—made from
cast brass and plated with 14 karat gold or rhodium—are intended to be worn with everything from jeans and a T-shirt to dressier outfits. And Heinemann’s edgy-meets-classic aesthetic is born out of an inspiring philosophy. “I don’t want women to forget the edge and inner strength they have. When women put it on, it makes them feel powerful. It’s mood-defining.” White Moth Jewelry is sold locally at Dovecote in Westport, CT and at Pimlico in New Canaan, CT. whitemothjewelry.com
