It's that sad time of year. The highs of are coming to an end. Kids are back in school and no more half day Fridays to head out of the office early and get your weekend started. Labor Day is over and summer for 2014 is now history. While this may mean for some the standard rules of no white jeans after labor day and various other fashion faux pas, Replica Van Cleef & Arpels Bracelet does it really also apply to bright colored jewelry. Do I have to switch to my darker colored jewelry and give up my fun neon and bright colored jewelry? How can I still get my bright colored jewelry to work for me, especially when I love color?
I may be biased and its tough for me to write about how summer is over as I walk from my car into the 95 degree heat as Love & Pieces is based out of Miami Beach, Florida. And as everyone who lives in Miami knows we generally have two seasons instead of the typical four else where in the country and world. In Miami our seasons consist of hot and hotter. Because of this, we see people continue their summer fashion trends and specifically bright colored jewelry later and later into the year. I know as I do this myself.  We wear open toe shoes all year round here and even the white jeans still work here in winter.  
Los Angeles also has an elongated summer season. Beach weather is still an option well into October. On both the east and West Coasts in the warmer climates you will see neon and bright colored jewelry trends continue through out the year. We are still seeing large sales of our  The bright colors aren't in a rush to go anywhere and quite frankly Fake Van Cleef Alhambra Bracelet we love our neon and bright colored jewelry and the trends that developed over the summer and would rather keep them around.

Our Gold & Gray Interview One on One
This month we have an interview with our featured designer of the month Gold & Gray.  Gold & Gray is based out of LA and owned by an amazing emerging jewelry designer Lily Gray.  The line is both bohemian but sophisticated and differs from what we are seeing so much of these days. 
Lily What Got You Into Jewelry And Ultimately Gold & Gray?
I really have always loved jewelry and started Cheap Van Cleef Clover Bracelet designing things for my friends and family.  I didn't actually think that I could make it a full time business until I started selling to local boutiques and realized it was a possibility.  At that point I quit my job and started working on Gold & Gray full time.  I never looked back.
You Mentioned You Sold To Local Boutiques? How Much Has LA Influenced You?
I love LA.  Its where I grew up and has a large part to do with who I am.  I love the beach and the lifestyle in LA.  I love spending time outside and visiting local museums.  Its always sunny here and I have a lot of childhood memories of going to the beach here.
Did You Have Formal Training In Jewelry Design Or Go To School For Jewelry?
No actually I majored in Communication Studies in college but always had a passion for jewelry design.  I did take some beading classes and interned for a couple of jewelry designers.
What Do You Find Is Your Biggest Challenge With Being a Jewelry Designer?
I think my biggest Knockoff Van Cleef Butterfly Bracelet challenge is finding the right balance between work and personal time.  It's not always so easy to just "turn it off" and that's been tough for me.  I'm still trying to figure out the best way to handle this. I do find organizing things whether its inventory or my personal things I find it calming.
What's Your Favorite Gold & Gray Piece?
I go through phases with my jewelry and tend to change my favorites.  I will wear a necklace or bracelets for a month straight and then switch it up.  I never leave home without either bracelets or a necklace.  Right now I love  I can't make them fast enough.    
What's Been The Most Rewarding Thing So Far About Starting Your Own Line?
It's hard to say one thing.  I love seeing other people enjoying my jewelry and seeing how they wear it.  Its been really rewarding also to see all of my hard work paying off.  Working for yourself is not always the easiest but has been really great.
