We love a great leap of faith and chasing your dreams. And one of those people who has inspired us is influencer Hayet Rida with her launch of The Koi Studio!
Cruzing with Luv AJ
Every girl loves her jewels- or at least I DO! Fancy that I had the chance to play with Amanda Thomas- the amazing jewelry designer behind LUV AJ on my latest stop on my Cruze adventure!
The stage was set at her beautiful LA home inside her studio. Here, Amanda shared with me the inspiration for Luv AJ, the collection, and how LUV AJ is a family affair! From her father and sister Claire (Blogger, Foodie, Photographer), to the support of her mother, this artistic family sure knows how to inspire and draw from each other’s talents!
No Seriously! After launching her line after happening across a cache of her father’s vintage arrowheads, LUV AJ was born! With the help of her sister as the photographer and stylist, this line packs panache, sass, and tons of class for the preppy conservative or the edgy fashionista!
Take a look at our adventure with LUV AJ!
But wait, there is more!
Amanda (AJ) walked me through her process of how she creates such unique and innovative uses of stones and metals! But we went even a step further!
After Amanda walked me through her current collection, we scooted over to where they cast the shapes of the jewels and polish the finishes to give LUV AJ the edge and pop of attitude that sets it apart from the rest! DIVINE!!!!!
