Phoenix-based fine jewelry brand Åma Sea Pearl was selected as one of 12 finalists to participate in the Emerging Designer Bootcamp 2018. Ariel Hodge, the designer behind this brand, is an MFA student studying metals at the School of Art in Arizona State University’s Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts.  

“Being accepted into the Phoenix Fashion Week Designer Bootcamp has been a transformative experience not only for myself in my own personal journey but for my brand,” Hodge said.

Hodge showcased Åma Sea Pearl’s first 2018 Collection at Phoenix Fashion Week in October.
