LiLyK TLC Corp.'s Profile

About

We all have a story to tell about our companies, our lives, our ideas…So here is mine.

LiLyK and my concept started about six years ago, and it wasn’t about business. It was about the right accessory, the right look, the one “special thing” that would make the light breezy organza dress I was going to wear come alive and set me apart from the ordinary.

I have always created, There isn’t anything I can’t do with my hands. I had a large faux painting business, until a badly torn rotator cuff prohibited me from painting on such a large scale. I hand painted clothing, just to see the same motifs I was painting being mass produced three years later. So… back to the breezy organza dress with its baby doll cut and sheer black ribbon straps.

My daughters Taleen, Celina and I were going to a relatives house for dinner. I put the dress on and looked around my very vast collection of jewelry…and everything I had was wrong, pearls , crystals, dangly chains, It was all too ordinary and I have never been ordinary.
I remembered that I had just cut the cuff off a denim jacket, I ran into my studio, gathered some old jewelry that I had no interest in, and started breaking it all apart. I looked at all the wonderful individual pieces I had…ooh la la. I got my needle and black thread and some crème paper flowers and started sewing…and this piece was my first and most beautiful necklace, and it was Not Ordinary.
Denim and a fragile looking organza dress, Who would have thought? The necklace brought that dress Alive.

Each piece I design weather it is romantic and soft or hard and rough , is reflective of who I am. My handcrafted bracelets and necklaces are all meant to stand on their own and make you the wearer feel special. Each piece exudes beauty, confidence, and fashion forward sense.
LiLyK’s pieces are not jewelry , They are their own entity. They come to life when You put them on…


The name LiLyK is a tribute to my beautiful maltese Lily, who unfortunately passed away before her time,,,and my name is Kariene.
Our hearts still ache for her,,,but she is remembered with Grace every single time I create a piece for LiLyK…
