Olsen has a practice of wearing the samples of each collection, to test the way they move and feel on her body. “When you design a piece you're always thinking of how it fits on the body; a really important part of the design process is wearing a piece,” she says. “As well as looking good, it's got to feel good. Jewelry is a very personal thing because we wear it so close to our bodies. It not only touches the skin but also touches the heart.”Ormandy and Olsen have collaborated with Louis Vuitton and Paul Smith, and have had work exhibited at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum. Pieces have featured in Carolina Herrera runway shows and have been worn by Kate Winslett, Rachel Weiss, Elle Macpherson, Hillary Swank, Chloe Sevigny, Anna Piaggi, and Alicia Keys.
