Instagram lead me down another rabbit hole.

I found Elizabeth on Instagram and knew her super chic gypset jewels must be shared.  I reached out to her and purchased 2 indian chief necklaces sight unseen.  I could not be more in love with my new pieces. and they will be perfect for my trip to Mustang Monument next week.

What is your training? 

After a decade working in the fashion industry for luminaries like Ralph Lauren and Tom Ford, I launched Elizabeth Sayles Jewelry in 2007 with an eye to marry the opulence and attention to detail I loved in my grandmother’s collection with a modern edge.

 

What inspires you and your designs?

A lot of it has to do with moving to southern california and taking my classic New England taste and mixing it with bohemian elegance

 

What is your favorite piece? 

My hand carved semi precious Indian & hawk necklaces

How has the your area influenced your work?

I first moved from New England to San Francisco. San Francisco is extremely sophisticated like the east coast whereas LA is more about bohemian glamour. LA has been my home now for over 13 years and I have definitely embraced that style. I like to call it Malibu-chic or rich hippie. Lol. 

 

What is your favorite restaurant in LA?

Jar steakhouse

 What is your favorite cocktail?

How do you balance personal life and work?

I don’t… I try to work 15 hour days monday-thursday and friday through sunday I try to get out of the city and stay in Malibu.

 

Dream trip?

Istanbul

Your favorite host / hostess gift to give?

I love to give elegant candles in either an amber or fig scent. I tend to lean more towards masculine scents as there is a warmth to them.

HARLOW BY ELIZABETH SAYLES infuses current fashion trends with inspiration from the past. This collection is a little bit vintage, a little bit rock n’ roll.

Here are a few of my favorite Elizabeth Sayles’ pieces…
