About

My name is Leyla, and I'm coo coo for jewelry!

I’m a new mom and while I’ve been making jewelry since I was six, now it’s a luxury, not a hobby or even work! All you moms and busy people out there feel me right?! Most of my ‘creating’ happens with my daughter getting up to all kinds of monkey business by my side!

All of my jewelry is MADE WITH LOVE! I know, such a cliché, but I have to say it cause it’s so so true! Making jewelry makes me crazy happy, and I think that that vibe makes its way to the women who wear it.

I’m a certified silversmith and gemologist, have a degree in fashion design and have even sold million dollar diamonds on Rodeo Drive, but it wasn’t until my daughter was born that I realized I just wanted to make fun, beautiful jewelry from junk and treasures found at the flea market!

Whenever possible I use vintage, used, recycled, and pre-loved materials. I do this cause I’m obsessed with being green, and cause, well, it looks cool!

I think it’s important to note that I am very particular about the quality and strength of my wirework. All junctions are hand wire wrapped.

I named my Etsy store after Frida Kahlo and Marilyn Monroe because these two women influence and inspire me every day! I love playing fantasy and imagining that we’re all best friends and go to the flea market together!

I am so proud and honored to say that my jewelry is worn by some groovy and stylish women including RACHEL BILSON, DEBRA MESSING, KATHERINE HEIGL, LISA KUDROW, PARKER POSEY, ANNE HECH, CHRISTINA APPLEGATE, KELLY CLARKSON, ANNA PAQUIN, VANESSA PARADIS, JULIANNE HOUGH, ASHLEY GREENE, COLBIE CAILLAT, MADELEINE STOWE, KATHY BATES, REBECCA ROMIJN, RITA WILSON and MANDY MOORE!
