We have been on a hiatus, but the blog is back!
School is ending, the weather is heating up, so now its time to jump into summer while the water is warm! And of course we couldn’t have you heading into the season without thinking about your accessories. Well LJ has our top hot summer picks that will help make any summer sizzle.
For the heat of the season we love lots of color! Whether its pairing a light and airy red coral necklace over a white sundress, or cooling down the night with some turquoise blue dangles. And if the bold colored jewels are not your thing, then maybe go casual with a bright splash of white. Whatever your plans this summer may be, we hope that you go out confident, stylish, and always well accessorized.
What are your summer go-to jewels?
What’s in a name you say? Well there is more to this two letter name than what you may think. Jo is the name of one of our top selling pieces here at Liz James and there are a few reasons, other than the fabulous design, that make this piece unique. Not only was the Jo made from the talented mind of designer Jamie Pope in all her creative glory, but it carries sentimental value. The charm that dangles from the end of this hand knotted necklace is an original cross from Jamie’s grandmothers collection. With this piece having that relation to her grandmother we wanted to name it after her, Mama Jo. So we simplified it and decided to call it Jo!
The Jo is an everyday kind of piece. You can dress her down for your everyday routine, or dress her up for a special night out. However you choose to wear Jo it will compliment your look with its natural tones of champagne pearls and highlights of turquoise and charms. Let’s see how we would wear Jo!
Now that you can see why we love the Jo so much here at LJ take one home for yourself! In fact why not enter out Facebook contest and get one for free! Check out our current giveaway going on right now at facebook.com/LizJamesDesigns.

Flowers are in full bloom, people are off on Spring Break excursions and next thing you know it will be summer! For those of you with children summer is a time when you need to find activities to keep the kiddos busy so thus you look into summer camps. How about signing them up for a jewelry making camp? Yes, it’s true we have a Camp Liz James! If you have a child who loves to do hands on projects and needs a way to express their creativity, and avoid the dog days of summer boredom, this may be the perfect summer camp for you.
Taught by our very own Sherri Earle, at our LJ summer camp the students will not only learn the basic fundamentals of the art of jewelry making, but will learn how to channel their creativity. Your child will have the opportunity to come up with their own unique designs while documenting the entire process. They will also present their projects to the class which will help work on building confidence and public speaking skills. There are many valuable lessons to be learned at Camp Liz James that your child can take away with them. Who knows maybe they will become a top designer one day!

We hope to see you this summer!
One night a year the lovely women and dashing men of Hollywood gather together to celebrate the greats in the industry. The Oscars is not only a night of awards, it is a night of dazzling fashion. Trends spotted at this years awards were lots of neutrals and glistening sparkle. Best Actress winner Jennifer Lawrence was glowing in a white bride-like beauty, courtesy of Dior Haute Couture as well as some of her fellow nominees who also opted for a neutral color palette.
These leading ladies were definitely looking flawless, but one thing that caught our eye at the Oscar’s was the bright pops of color. We took colorful inspiration from a few of the actresses from the Red Carpet and paired it with a more everyday look with a pair of our new Spring earrings to match.
To start it off we have Jennifer Garner whom all of us here at LJ just love, love, love! We love her even more in this Gucci Raspberry colored dress posed alongside her Oscar winning beau Ben Affleck.
The LJ take on this is a Magenta toned shorter cut dress with similar frills. Tie in the belt with a elegant dark toned earring such as our Carol earring made with a dark brown pyrite to top off the look.
Reese, always stunning, always timeless, and now gorgeous in this Cobalt Blue Louis Vuitton.
We were so inspired by the vibrant hue Reese choose this year, and by her usual sweet sophisticated style that we dubbed our new Reese Earring after her. Pair this earring with a asymmetrical cut short dress in the same cobalt blue to achieve a look even Reese would be excited about. The gray pearl of the earrings will play off the cool blue hues of the dress to give it a blue shade to pair even better with the ensemble.
Kerry Washington this year not only has shined in her performances on screen, but is glowing so gracefully in this coral Miu Miu.
Coral is always such a fabulous color for the Spring and Summer season and Kerry pulled this off very well. Pairing a fun, short, high waisted dress with a solid gold, sassy earring like our Laci can give you a great Summer night on the town look.
Which pairing is your favorite? Who would you give the Best Dressed Award to at this years Oscars?
P.S. Don’t miss our Spring Collection Launch March 22nd!
LJ here finally back to blogging after a little bit of a hiatus. 2012 was an exciting year and we are ready for an even better 2013!
We are inspired by Hollywood’s young stars on the red carpet at this years Golden Globe Awards. Zooey and Jennifer were looking red hot and elegant. Not only is this a fabulous color at the moment, but it reminds us that Valentine’s day is right around the corner. Here at LJ we put together a couple of ideas to give you some ideas for your special night out!
For your Valentine’s date night go classic and cute like Zooey Deschanel with white pearls and accessories to match, or go sexy and simple like Jennifer Lawrence fiery hot with fabulous dangles. Whatever your Valentine’s Day plans may be don’t be afraid to conquer the red and take on the night!
How will you wear your red this Valentine’s Day?
