Electric Picks is jewelry inspired by music.
An avid music lover, MJ collected guitar picks from concerts for years- one night she had a dream to put all those guitar picks into bracelets. Soon friends & strangers started asking her to do the same for them- and in 2011 Electric Picks was born with a signature guitar pick bracelet. Quickly after Britney Spears requested “Believe” be printed on a custom pick bracelet, just for her.
MJ partnered with Chantel Gia- business women, best friends, music-lovers, and designers Chantel & MJ each bring a unique style to the brand.
Every time MJ & Chantel would search for a piece of jewelry they wish existed, but they could not find, the brand would expand (little by little). They now offer a full line of necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and anklets (hey, if you can’t find it- make it!)
MJ & Chantel love to scour vintage stores for inspiration. Using materials from their travels all around the world (Istanbul, Morocco, Thailand, Paris, Capri, Monte Carlo, etc) they mix gemstones and fine metals to create looks that aspire to be as timeless as music is.
MJ, an event planner turned jewelry designer, played classical piano for 12 years and guitar for 4. For her 8th birthday her parents bought her a lemonade stand, but instead of selling lemonade she peddled custom friendship bracelets to the whole neighborhood. She fused her love of music + fashion into Electric Picks Jewelry.
While living in San Francisco, CA with her family as a young girl, Chantel began working as a print/fit model on a steady basis. She fell deeply in love with the design aspect of the fashion industry; and it was there, at the young age of 11, she was made aware of a natural keen eye for style. Often she would offer design suggestions and find the following day that the designers, with decades of experience under their belts, had taken her advice. She has 2 degrees in Fashion Design & Fashion Merchandising.
We love what we do, and hope you love what we create!
