JELENA BEHREND’S OBJECTS OF DESIRE | Vol. 1. | PART III | CANDACE WORTH

November 6, 2014

 

 

Candace, what do you do for a living?

 

I am a contemporary art adviser based in NYC. 

 

How did you find out about Jelena Behrend?

 

I used to walk my German Shepherd, Luke, in front of her old Orchard Street studio when I lived in

the East Village. I would ogle the offerings in the window and eventually Jelena came out and said hi

to Luke and I. Luke was my show-stopper!

 

What are your favorite places to wear Jelena’s jewelry?

 

Everywhere.

Unless I am sleeping or showering, I always have on multiple pieces of Jelena Behrend.

 

What pieces are your all time favorite, and why?

 

Probably my Bubble Ring, now known as the Candace Ring. I wanted a statement ring in gold

with stones and basically told Jelena to make what she wanted based on this. It’s so special that

on the rare occasion I don’t wear it, people ask me where it is. It is truly an unforgettable ring.

 

Do they bring you fortune, love, and protection?

 

I am not a big believer in that sort of thing but all of her work definitely has a special power to it.

My gold nugget charm necklace is the go-to good luck piece!

 

How does Jelena make the jewelry perfect for you?

Jelena has a weird sixth sense about what styles work with different clients and collectors. I have seen her do it

over and over again with astonishing accuracy. When I am waffling about what direction to go in, she knows exactly

what type of metal, stone, length, etc. works. Because of this, all of my pieces I go back to again and again. 

 

What do people say, when they see you wearing the jewelry, and how do you manage their envy?

 

I get so many compliments from so many different kinds of people. I was in London a few weeks ago at a dinner

and the artist I was sitting with was obsessed with my earrings. They were a relatively new design by Jelena. It was an open,

elongated, bird-cage shape. The artist sitting next to me just kept staring at them. I finally just took one off and let her put it on.

We were pretty lit by then. Thankfully I remembered to get it back at the end of the night.

 

What is your favorite place to wear Jelena’s jewelry? Are there pieces that you never take off, that are a part of your skin?

 

I don’t wear the flashier pieces when I am upstate in the country. Outside of that, I am always wearing Jelena’s earrings

and multiple rings at a minimum, plus a bracelet or 2 stacked up with my watch…

 

What pieces are you hoping to own next?

 

A new charm for one of my necklaces and maybe some stackable pinky rings in different

finishes with colored diamonds.
