So in many ways, Eye of the Sun is Compo’s re-entry (and it’s been well-received by retailers like the Conservatory).

“I’m feeling optimistic about 2021 and I’m so happy to have 2020 in the rear view, but I know how important it is to stay flexible,” she says. “I need to be flexible and creative if I want to keep growing. Clients are looking for more than just a pretty piece, so pieces with meaning and intent have been resonating with them.”

And that will be her focus going forward. It’s a fitting new chapter for a designer who has finally found her voice.

I hope we all find our voices anew in 2021, share our gifts with the world and one another, and turn our faces to the sun when it emerges from the dark. Do you hear the people sing/Lost in the valley of the night/It is the music of a people/Who are climbing to the light…
