Statement Jewelry Azores Inspired...


I am really excited to introduce to you a new, and incredibly talented, friend of mine, Emilie Smith.  She is a Swedish Haute Couture Bijouterie designer who lives and is inspired by her home, São Miguel, Azores. When Emilie first wrote to me, she said, “For the last 7 years I have been designing and producing my own bijouterie. In 2006, I opened the largest commercial bead shop in Europe... in Ponta Delgada. Then Portugal hit the depression, and basically overnight my shop became my atelier. As you see on my work, I do have my favorites, such as fresh water pearls, semi- precious stones, mother pearl, murano and crystals. I like timeless things... My mother is the same, and all through my life I have been able to use her things. I stand for quality, service and exclusiveness. All my pieces are unique and hand made by me.”

Emilie designs unique, statement jewelry for women over 35…though she hopes to expand her business with pieces for all ages soon.  Each piece is unique and she says is done very quickly and under the inspiration of so much beauty around her in the Azores.  She ships all orders by “blue registered mail” and she currently ships worldwide for free!!

She loves to spoil her customers, so she always sends matching sterling silver earrings with all necklaces as a little way to say THANK YOU!



Her website, LAVA DESIGN BY EMILIE SMITH, will officially launch on Wednesday and she wants all of us to know, she is working hard to bring some amazing work.

This week I am featuring two of Emilie’s necklaces!  The day I opened her box, I immediately wore this one to an event and spent the evening answering

WHERE DID YOU GET THAT??


Statement Jewelry is in and I am pleased to introduce you to Emilie and the gorgeous statements she is making!  Come back Wednesday to see another beautiful creation and a reminder of her official website launch!!

Happy Monday, everyone!
Linking up today with MONDAY MINGLE! Go check out the great styles!
