Designer Spotlight -- Lisa Liddy of Joolz by Lisa

Today I'd like to highlight a fellow jewelry designer, Lisa Liddy. I own some of Lisa's jewelry, and you'd be doing yourself a favor by visiting her site, www.joolzbylisa.com.


You're probably wondering why in the world I would promote someone else's jewelry, but it's like this -- I consider jewelry art. I own a lot of handmade art, from blown glass vases to paintings to collaged boxes to Other People's Jewelry. Jewelry is art (yes indeed it is!). When someone loves what they do, a piece of their heart goes into it, and to me, that's a huge part of the meaning of art.


Enter Lisa Liddy. Take a look at some of her work. I've been dying over this kyanite necklace with handmade glass accents:


She's also known for her fun, festive, over-the-top rings:



She also has a very clever earring creation called Changeables. You purchase one pair of hoops that come with a beaded drop. You can then purchase additional drops from her store (or email her for custom dangles) to have a fun, full jewelry box of earrings!



I hope you'll visit her store (she offers FREE SHIPPING right now!) and take a look at her blog, her work with the Melonhead Foundation, and of course, her jewelry! And wave and say hello and tell her Lori sent you!

  1. Thank you, Lori, for such a lovely post. I know one day we'll meet in person and have hours of laughter and fun.

    I have to say you have great taste! :) And also to add that the "Changeables" are just my spin on an idea that has been around. I know Angie Ramey (BeadAddicts) inspired me with her version.
