About Us

inspired by the world, handcrafted in nashville, tn

Designer Lindsay Farrer created Simon & Ruby out of a story of loss and yearning, that of her great-grandmother Ruby, who lost her first love Simon to the distance, and eventually the casualty, of war. Ruby's longing for Simon was vast but delicate, one born of the understanding that part of her heart would always live somewhere else. That nostalgia, the need to return to the people and places of our past, was familiar to Lindsay. It often washed over her like homesickness, a yearning not for an address she left behind, but for the experiences of her travels.

The Simon & Ruby line of fashion jewelry is inspired by wanderlust and the sweet agony of missing a place. Lindsay designs her handmade jewelry for globetrotters and those with an unshakable sense of wanderlust, for the free spirits and the wanderers who know that exquisite aching all too well. She creates unique jewelry, objects of beauty that are more than tokens of travels for the wanderesses who wear them. They are wistful reminders that our hearts can live in many places, sometimes all at once.

- If you had to pick a mission statement for your life, what would it be? 

To be someone who sees the beauty in the world and shares it with others. Also, to give more than I take.

- Favorite gemstone? 

This week... Moonstone & Labradorite. You don't notice the flash of blue (labradorescence) until you look at it just right. I love stones that have a secret, a bit of mystery and intrigue.

Chase your dreams even if it terrifies you.

LAURA FENWICK – travel photographer/writer

- If you had to pick a mission statement for your life, what would it be? 

Probably: ask for what you want.  I implement that one all the time, but I’m bad at mission statements. I'm too close to it, I think. Maybe: if you don't feel like dancing in the kitchen, you should probably take a quick inventory of your life.

- Most memorable trip? What was so special about it? Did you learn anything cool about yourself? 

Kitesurfing in Mexico was a game changer for me. I know that's a cliché, but it's true. It was the first time in my adult professional life I stepped back into the role of student --one with no understanding or comparable experience to draw on (which of itself was an adventure through parts of myself typically unseen) -- and learned, and photographed, a sport in which yielding the need for control is paramount. Kiting has such a connected international community, so it was an incredible opportunity to meet and travel with so many new people. That, too, then opened a lot of opportunity to me professionally, and helped direct my career into what it is today. Plus. Mexico. So much of it is good and pure and made of magic.
