Collaborating with Mom on new wrist wraps, bracelets, headbands and more!
We're using silk ribbons, metallic thread and shiny yarn to create a cool crochet look.
Wrap around your wrist or use as a headband.
The colors...so alluring and lovely.
These can be slipped on and off like a bangle, easy! The fringe tie is so fun and interesting.
Little LilyGirl's will LOVE.
Getting some beads into the action too...
It's no wonder that I was giddy with excitement after this fun day working with mom.
Her talented hands once again provided many gems to inspire new designs!

Meet my best friend Jane. This is us in 1993.
Long before the days of LilyGirl Jewelry,
we shared a passion for all-things-wire.
We began a business twisting and curling it into artful candle and flower holders...
eventually sprinkling the world with our creations.
For more than seven years, we collaborated and designed together,
always maintaining our "Twisted in California" motto.
Each piece was carefully handmade by us and our studio girls.
But as our concepts started getting knocked off overseas,
we had to close the business. The sad times are behind us now...
Here we are today, celebrating our long-lasting friendship in a recent photo shoot
wearing LilyGirl's newest collection, "Twisted in California".
This jewelry features one of Jane's signature wire designs, in fact,
you will see the influence of our twisted wire throughout the line.
More to come soon about this tribute to LOVE and long-lasting friendships everywhere!
