While in Los Angeles last month, Kate and I searched for the perfect casual-cool jewelry that was different than what we had seen everywhere already. We had seen A LOT of leather bracelets, some beaded pieces, but nothing that really stood out as something unique we wanted to bring home. Then, on our last day at market, at our last appointment, we spotted this amazing jewelry from across the room. It was unique, casual, very rock and roll, yet still had a feminine element to it–Let’s just say it was love at first site with new jewelry line Luv AJ.
Luv AJ’s creator Amanda Thomas is only 23 and just graduated from Otis College of Art and Design in LA. Amanda has already worked with leading designers like Rachel Pally before creating her own line.
Her super cool jewelry line has become increasingly popular in Hollywood among starlets and clients such as Chloe Sevigny, Ashlee Simpson, Rachel Bilson, and Ashely Tisdale who admire her signature heavy-metal spikes and layered chains.
I got the chance to chat with Miss Thomas today, and she is super sweet and passionate about her designs. I congratulated her on all the recent press, and she refreshingly grateful and humble. She said that a lot of women love the line because of its simplicity. It’s easy to wear and not something you’ll see everyday. She said the pieces are the types that always have people asking “Where did you get that?!” (I totally agree!)
The bad ass bling arrived Monday and sold out of the handpieces in one day! However, we were able to order a few more. If you’d like one, please come by the store and preorder yours. They are the perfect statement piece that’s so easy for anyone to wear.
