New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
Known for their handcrafted jewelry and one-of-a-kind pieces, duo Megan Victoria and Paul Fickett behind Jupiter Lala have joined the roster of entertainment and creative arts public relations firm Bats on Strings.
Megan Victoria uses her Gemology and Jewelery Manufacturing Arts degrees, as well as her art and aerialist experience, to dream up unique necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings.
“I wanted to work with Tiffany of Bats on Strings immediately because I liked her. In working with Tiffany I have found I love it because she never shies away from any idea,” says Jupiter Lala co-founder Megan Victoria. “She’s brave, she sinks her teeth into my aesthetic and I feel my art is not only safe with her, but I actually feel excited to be on this path with her.”
Megan and Paul find the inspiration for each collection, or range, in the world around them, ancient proverbs, and the history and intricacies of each entity used in their jewelery. The importance of storytelling is one aspect that takes precedence throughout the entire Jupiter Lala line. Precious metals such as 18kt rose gold vermeil and sterling silver are combined with gemstones, vintage rarities such as 17th century tin soldiers, and natural items, to make every piece both striking and thought provoking.
Emmy Award winner Paul applies his skills from working on the set of Cirque de Soleil directly to the bench to help construct each vision – soldering metals, dipping delicate Spanish moss in gold, and hammering stars.
Megan and Paul recently made the trip across the country to set down roots in their dream city, New Orleans, and create the forthcoming winter range, including collections titled Predator and Prey, Sea and Stars, and Historics. The hunter and the hunted and the feral feeling in south Louisiana play a heavy influence throughout these new pieces, which are available for purchase on the Jupiter Lala website at http://www.jupiterlala.com.
“When I first met Megan and Paul, the designers behind Jupiter Lala, I instantly knew I wanted to be a part of their team. The pieces are little works of wearable art, and the passion behind the designs is so tangible,” says Bats on Strings founder Tiffany Napper.
The boutique public relations firm focuses on helping films, musicians, artists and creative endeavours reach new heights. Since its founding in January 2011, Bats on Strings has expanded its client base to include the talent of New Orleans artist Hayley Gaberlavage, Yamaha Entertainment Group, TravelCorp, and the film The Tell Tale Heart, among others.
