Dahlia Lux Lookbook

I thought it would be fun to show you all my jewelry in action. I have beautiful friends who have graciously decided to model it for you all! And myself of course. *wink wink*

This is me, of course, wearing my Megan set. It’s a necklace and earring set consisting of a rainbow crystal cluster pendant with matching crystal cluster earrings. I don’t want to be that mom but this set is probably my favorite baby.

Next is one of my besties Isabella sporting the panda earrings I named after her.

She loves pandas so when I made these I HAD to name them after her.

She also is modeling Kailee (left) necklace in the tall style and the set Robin (right). The Robin set is made of amber stones with wood and silver accents. I named this set after the best boss I ever had. (And I’ve had a lot of them.)

This necklace is my Louisa necklace. I named if after the character Louisa Clark from the book Me Before You. The pendant is an image of succulents in a glass and golden box. Much like the new interior design trend going around these days. The earrings are named Safie after the young woman in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. I wanted to name a piece after a female character from that book but I already have Mary, Shelley and Lisbeth pieces so I went with a lesser known name from the book. Frankenstein is just one of my all time favorite books so I had to use a name that was solely picked from that book.

Here is another one of my besties, Kailee wearing the necklace I named after her. This is the classic style. There are three different styles of Kailee. I think she chose the perfect shirt to go with her necklace.

This set is my Ada set. It has a necklace and two bracelets. I love this necklace because I used my favorite colors in it. It feels the most me. I named this set Ada after Ada Monroe from Cold Mountain. If you didn’t know that is my favorite book of all time.

I also noticed that the brown version of my owl earrings, called Lonnie Mae,  pair really well with this set. I added them in for  little touch of whimsy. Lonnie Mae comes in three different colors and is named after my Nana who loves owls.

My friend Marilyn is modeling the set named after her. This would have to be one of my fancier pieces. The pendant is gold with faux crystal accents. The red glass beads add a touch of timeless elegance.

I went a little more simple with the matching bracelet and earrings. What I love about the earrings is they’re mismatched. I love mismatched pieces.

And finally here I am in my Evelyn set. This set is made with Amazonite and Howlite stone beads. The silver accents keep it bright.

I named this set after my best friend Karen’s daughter. I think this set is perfect for a wedding!

I’m proud of all my sets and I’m proud to know all the ladies my pieces are named after. Even if they’re fictional. Which piece is your favorite?

I Have My Own Online Store!

It’s finally happened, y’all! I’m a small business owner! I’M A BOSS LADY. 

It all started nine years ago when I was working in a Hobby Lobby store and decided I wanted to try a new hobby. I chose jewelry making. I started with stretch bracelets and necklaces. I tried selling some but it didn’t do very well. I gave some as gifts but that’s as far as they went. Well last year I was thinking of ways I could work from home so that I could stay home with my sons and I remembered I could make jewelry. I started experimenting with new styles and tried my hand at making earrings. I was really impressed with myself and got a new hope that it could really work this time. So I decided to start an online store and here I am!

My main styles are very earthy. I love incorporating elements of nature into my jewelry as well as some spiritual aspects.

I got the name of my business from my favorite flower, also lux means light. I also wanted something feminine and uplifting, something that would be easy to remember as well as something a person would feel good about sharing with friends.

The dream of becoming my own boss is slowly coming true, I really hope you can all find something you like and I would so much appreciate it if you would all spread the word. I believe that even international sales are possible! I’m so excited to see where this endeavor takes me and I just want to thank all of you in advance for all the likes, shares, business, and kind words any of you decide to give me.

I’m so excited!!!
