This week we spoke to Thea Bloch-Neal, founder of Hushed Commotion! Hushed Commotion is a Brooklyn based team starting in 2012 with the goal to create detailed, striking, & coveted pieces including handcrafted earrings & headpieces that make clients feel striking & singular on their wedding day. Thea gravitates towards gold & is inspired by vintage motifs. Melding her vision of vintage meets modern-day is their core value. 

Thea values the hand made process immensely. She grew up in a family that valued the artisan, & is a big believer in encouraging the world to find their way back to supporting the artisans of this world & the craft that is involved in creating beautiful pieces of art. Additionally, Hushed Commotion makes each piece to order, cutting down on needless waste; using almost exclusively recyclable packaging, & their studio is fit with solar panels to reduce their use of the power grid. In early 2021, Thea started releasing small monthly collections  of earrings & necklaces that have a different charitable aspect & 15% of the sales are dedicated to whatever the charity/nonprofit is for that month. So far they have supported ROAR NYC, The National Black Child Development Institute, & Girls Not Brides. To learn more about Thea & Hushed Commotion please visit the links below. Happy listening!
