Handmade With Love Feature Interview: LHB Jewelry

I’m very excited to introduce you all to the first of the fabulous shops which are sponsoring my Handmade With Love Winter Giveaway; LHB Jewelry! Please read below to learn a little about Lauren and take a look at the gorgeous jewelry she has to offer in her store.

Please tell me about yourself.

My name is Lauren Hope. I am 24 years old and when I am not working as a preschool teacher, I am creating unique pieces of jewelry. I love blues and greens and browns and can find inspiration is almost anything I see. I live with my husband, Tripp. My dog, Dahlia, and my two cats, Tobey and Jack. I have my own art room in my house, but I usually sit in the living room with a box full of supplies and create next to my husband.

What kinds of products do you offer?

Jewelry and hair accessories.

How long have you been in business?

About a year now.

What sets your business apart from others in your niche? 

LHB Jewelry is all about creating unique and stylish wearable art with a modern simplicity thats inspired by nature with a big emphasis on FUN.

What is your most popular product?

It depends on where I am selling. At farmers markets my most popular item is my wire wrapped rings. At bazaars my necklaces do really well. Online its a bit of a mix.

What inspires you?

Anything! I really love nature, but that sounds so cliche. I love clean and simple lines, bright bold colors, and photography. Any of these things inspire me to create.

Where do you see your business heading in the future?

I hope to one day have children and be able to leave my teaching job and work from home. My dream would be to open up a shop with my Mom by my side in the downtown Portland area.

Which countries do you ship to?

US, Canada, Worldwide

These are stunning. Each piece has it's own unique detail to it and that makes it so beautiful. I love the bird nest jewelry a lot. Very well done. Thanks for sharing :)
