LJ Summer Hot Picks

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.

You Don’t Know JO!

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!

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!
