Iris models Lani Bleu Designs in Joshua Tree, CA. Photography by Hannah R-Reyes.
Lani Bleu is Venice Beach encapsulated: naturally blessed by the sun, she has that forever lasting glow of summer, and sun-blonde hair from her life on the sand.
She launched her jewelry line many years ago, inspired by her travels to Bali, the sea birds who guided her, and the phoenix carrying her spirit to the sun.
Lani Bleu Designs is now on Etsy where you can get your own stunning hand-wrapped crystals, or artist-designed bird necklaces, custom-lettered bracelets, or feather-adorned leather belts. Some items are not yet available, but will be listed soon!
Intoxicating details bewitch every handmade piece:
large, supreme-quality tourmalines that surprise with centers that glow from within when light breaks across their surface;
premium crystals wrapped with gold or rose gold, sparkling on every faceted plane;
each flying bird is hand-carved with incredible detail, alive with energy;
snake rings that slither between multiple fingers on the hand.
Many of Lani's necklaces come with a back-detail: a second crystal dangling down your spine, catching the light and drawing the eye to your exposed toned and tan back-- an essential of summer beach fashion!
I am delighted to be working with Lani Bleu Designs, facilitating the success of her jewelry line by assisting with Etsy shop management, product photography, and fashion editorial shoots.
