Hello everyone and happy Sunday!
I am starting a new series on my blog where I spot light some amazing brands and artists that I am obsessed with for a lack of a better word! The first brand I am featuring is called Billy Sky. Lauren, the owner, has created some of my favorite jewelry pieces that I have seen in a long time. They are the perfect mix of feminine and edgy. Bellow, Lauren did a little Q and A for me where she answered all the questions I had about her amazing brand!
You have the best style! How would you describe your style and where do you get your style inspiration?
Aw thank you! You can say my passion for style started at a very young age. My Grandfather was a clothing manufacturer in Los Angeles and I don’t think there is one woman I was close to growing up that didn’t have a great sense of style. Planet Blue Malibu has always been my absolute favorite boutique and I continue to draw inspiration from their amazing journey. I also get a lot of style inspiration through music, especially from the 70s era. As far as my style goes I love to play along the lines of mixing feminine with edgy.
How did you get into jewelry design?
I actually started Billy Sky as a vintage resale business and started making handmade jewelry to style with the clothes. After having children, I decided just to focus on growing the jewelry end of the brand. I would love to bring clothing design back in one day though!!
I’m not sure if you could ever pick, but do you have a favorite piece that you’ve designed?
The beaded fringe earrings are and have always been a favorite design because they have evolved so much through the years. It is wonderful to get to change the design as seasons change. I also love the newest large Crescent Statement Necklaces. I love designing pieces that are maticulously imperfect.
Where do you see your brand in 5 years?
For the next 5 years I will continue to grow Billy Sky Lifestyle Brand, achieving goals and letting the process unfold…by the end of 5 years I would hope to end up somewhere magical
If there is anything else you want my readers to know about your or your jewelry, feel free to share it!
There is so much love put into every single piece made. So many of my clients express to me how many compliments they get on their Billy Sky. It feels wonderful knowing I am making people’s day brighter by doing what I love.
Well, there it is guys! The necklace that she sent me is one of my favorite pieces I own. I have already gotten so many compliments and it is truly a work of art that I get to wear around my neck! I can’t wait to see what else Lauren brings to the table and where her brand goes. I am foreseeing big things!
