About

A Change of View

Hey there rock star. You really wanna know? Here goes......

I grew up in California getting to pursue my first love working on feature films. I have been fortunate to work all over the world on such movies as “Speedracer,” “Contraband,” "Matrix," "Harry Potter" and "Troy."

The second love came by two parallel accidents. My grand dame grandmother Louella passed away leaving me her jewelry. She was a spit fire who lived a long exciting life always dressed to the nines. I was overwhelmed and confused by her generosity since I would maybe throw a bracelet on running out the door.

Very soon after, while working on a movie in California, I came down with the common flu. If common means bitch slapping you, calling you fat and sleeping with your boyfriend. This flu was mean! After several months of bed rest, I didn't get better. In fact, I kept feeling worse. More months followed by years with no medical explanation.

Getting antsy stuck at home, I dug Grammy's jewelry out of the closet and began reworking modern designs in my head. One drawing led to a casting which led to a handmade f-ing cool necklace and I was hooked.

Four years later, at rheumatologist #5's office (the first 2 said I was crazy - yea, I already know that!), I was finally diagnosed with an auto immune disease and fibromyalgia. With the right medication I immediately felt 80% better. The sun came out, birds sang - and I felt like a badass again.

With my new found freedom, I realized I didn't want to go back to movies. I absolutely loved jewelry design. Add to that the affirmations sparked by my snarky sense of humor and LilahV was born.

Have a kick ass day.

Amanda

Lilah is both a nickname for my Grandmother Louella and my Australian shepherd rescue - yes the one in the photo.

Frequently asked questions

Will my jewelry tarnish?

All gold (and silver) tarnishes over time. Ok, 100% pure gold does not tarnish but its also too soft to use and requires it to be combined with other metals. Gold and silver plated or dipped will tarnish over time depending on a number of factors like cosmetics, soap, chlorine, perspiration and even smog. Gold filled and sterling silver takes a significant longer time because its - well there's a shit ton more gold or silver on that bad boy.

For me, Amanda, I have to be very careful even wearing 24k solid gold jewelry since the ph balance in my skin makes gold tarnish very quickly! Pretty ironic for a jewelry designer.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each RETRO collection piece comes on a baby soft piece of recycled leather or suede and then placed in a white or black gift box.

All other necklaces and earrings come on their respective cards and encased in a reusable cellophane envelope. Rings are placed in a cotton drawstring bag.

Want a box? You can buy a gift box for each item here: http://lilahv.myshopify.com/products/gift-box-add-on

Receipts = To save (and love) trees, I do not include a receipt in any order. If you want a receipt included, please leave that in the notes. And hug a tree.

What is the LilahV? What is the V? How do you say it?

LilahV: [Ly-La-Vee] We named our company after our rescue aussie Delilah. Yep, our company originates from a dog. A sweet, smart, energetic, all things awesome dog. Totes makes sense now, hey?

The company started life as LilahVintage. When we began back in 2012 our brand was based around the 1920's bauhaus beads in the RETRO collection. But without much foresight (we expected this to be a fun side project) we forgot the beads will run out. Then what? Oops. When the company started expanding, we shortened it to LilahV.

What is gold or silver "dipped," "plated" and "filled?" What's the diff?

First - dipped and plated are the same thing. Dipped just sounds way cooler.

Gold & silver plated uses a base metal (usually alloy) which goes through a series of processes and is eventually dipped into a bath of electroplating solution which contains gold or silver. When an electric current is applied, an electro-chemical reaction occurs and a thin layer of gold or silver is deposited onto the metal.

Gold filled is at least 1/20th the gold in weight of the piece - a significant amount more gold than plated. The jewelry starts with a base metal, brass, which is heat pressured and bonded with an outside layer of metal.

The difference therefore is the amount of gold used and the bonding process.

Why donate to Humane Society? Why LLS?

I love dogs. And I love my mom. That may seem unrelated but I lost my mommy to Acute Leukemia in 2013. LLS was there after her diagnosis to give us information, resources, even hugs. They sent survivors to come talk to both my mom and the family (and were the first to say she could even possibly survive) giving us hope. And she did survive, for 5 more years, long enough to dance at my wedding.

Oh and if I didn't mention it - I love dogs. I work with the Utah Humane Society to adopt all kinds of critters from rats (yuck!) to kitties (awh) to Great Danes. My husband, Gary, and I even take in foster dogs who need to get out of that tiny kennel for a few weeks. You can follow our wackiness on Instagram @lilahvjewelry
