SAMPLES: When I’m designing any new piece or collection, I start with sketching. As much as I sketch, I’ve also got to take it to the studio and start testing my ideas. Sometimes what I think to be my greatest designs don’t end up working out the way I had envisioned, or they’re not as successful from a production standpoint. When sampling, my team and I test multiple iterations of a design until we get the specs just right. Sometimes, we’ll take the more successful samples and finish them just for the sample sale later that year. These sample pieces are usually really similar to the end-design, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with them!

SECONDS: We have really high standards for quality control at CMD. Sometimes pieces won’t pass these test for minor blemishes that most people wouldn’t even notice. Seconds also include floor models and pieces that are on display in The Showroom throughout the year. None of it has been worn, but it’s not as fresh as a piece handmade for you days within placing an order the way we like it.

ONE-OF-A-KIND CREATIONS: Sometimes, we just have scraps lying around. I like to use this sale as an opportunity to let the team play around a little and do some design work of their own. We like to waste metal or materials as little as possible. I love seeing what my gals come up with - Some of these pieces are completely unique, and some of them are slight variations on the CMD designs you’re used to seeing on the website and in the shop.

All samples and seconds are priced anywhere between 30-50+% off. You don’t want to miss this year's Sample Sale event!
