We elevate your denim and polish the chrome on your party dress.

Oxymorons abound, Cold Gold is polished yet organic, professional yet carefree, and simple yet razzle dazzle.

While using clean lines and straightforward geometry to recall a “classic” design aesthetic, Cold Gold pulls from a variety of disparate influences to create each design.

Whether it’s the exactness of mid century modern furniture, a nostalgia-drenched 90s fashion magazine, or the sleek, purposeful design of a pocketknife— all of these inspirations are distilled into small, beautifully functional accents for every day wear.Longing for accessories that folds seamlessly into your wardrobe? Cold Gold elevates your denim and polishes the chrome on your party dress. Bold, lightweight, and infinitely wearable, we pass the sniff test as far as versatility and longevity. Your capsule wardrobe never looked so GOLD.

Marigold Yellow Leather Star Shaped Statement Earrings

Owner + Creative Director

Alaina Smith

Alaina Smith is the creative super power behind Cold Gold: an accessories brand specializing in colorful leather goods and geometric jewelry. She opened the company in 2013 after receiving her BFA in printmaking from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. She has served on Knoxville’s Mayor’s Maker Council since 2016, and was committee chair of Knoxville’s Maker City Summit in 2018 and 2019. She also teaches the Etsy Craft Entrepreneurship class at the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center. Along with that, Alaina has participated in more than 40 craft fairs and 2 trade shows and sells her line to more than 80 retail stores worldwide.

How I describe my personal style

Typical Alaina style is Barbie dream house meets Japanese minimalism. I love bright colors and fun accessories, and I never shy away from an architectural accent or a dramatic texture. You can catch me lusting after a brightly patterned shift dress as well as a sleek pair of neon yellow clogs.

What I love about Knoxville

Knoxville is an open and giving community for makers, because it values community over competition and has a relatively low cost of living. I also love the mountains, the people, and being so so close to Dollywood. I could do without all the snakes though.

Production Assistant

Daniella Gray Hackett

Daniella is a longtime Cold Gold babe, and has been featured in several photoshoots over the years. It only seems natural that she takes on a larger role within the production of the gorgeous goods that she wears in shoots! Aside from modeling, Daniella spends her time perfecting her eyeliner skills, knowing the artist of every song that plays, and providing hilarious commentary to the world around her. Catch her in a ball gown, laughing loudly at a bar near you.

How I describe my personal style

Unexpected, colorful, and sometimes Victorian all come to mind. Whether it’s a nightgown or a full coverage peasant dress, Daniella is almost always the most stylish person in the room.

What I love about Knoxville

Having friends and family around and a good music scene is key.
