Jillian Dempsey Is Making The Move Into Jewelry Artistry

Mobility in the industry seems to work in a very specific way—most run for the limelight, but Jillian Dempsey is content being the artistic muse. A popular makeup artist who works on A-list celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Winslet, Dempsey has recently premiered her own line of fine jewelry. Launching her brand this last Wednesday, she held a party that brought in close friends Mila Jovovich and Kristen Stewart along with the support of her husband, Patrick Dempsey.

An artistic person at heart, Dempsey began to take a sculpting class several years ago as another way to tap into her creative talents. Falling in love with the idea of modeling and casting, she began to work on her own small pieces during events, molding little pieces backstage that would soon be a part of the collection. "I would bring my wax and just start sculpting away when I had time," she told WWD.
