The Story of SundayGirl by Amy Di Lamarra

How "I Love You" Became 143:

Back in the dark ages when only investment bankers and on-call surgeons had cell phones, I met my husband to be. Not long after we started dating he began leaving little notes for me that would just say "143 -Will". It stood for the number of letters in each of the words "I Love You". (Of course he had to explain it to me the first time) Time went on and paper notes gave way to texting. Cut to 2014, I was working on some stacking beaded friendship style bracelets but I wanted them to have something to make them really stand out. It was my husband Will who just threw out " why don't you do 1 then 4 then 3 beads of a different color. Genius (that's why I married him) These really get to the spirit of my company i.e. Creativity that's motivated by Love. Since I began selling this collection, I've had the pleasure hearing customers share their own stories of using 143 as code for 'I Love You". So I guess we didn't make it up, but it's so fun to put it out there.

About How it's Made:

Several different processes and techniques are used in creating this jewelry. Original castings are made from hand fabricated pieces with lost wax technique and others are made from drawings rendered in 3-D. Seed Bead bracelets, and necklaces are strung by hand here in Los Angeles, cord bracelets are all knotted by hand. In order to keep up with demand from online sales and wholesale accounts I employ talented piece-workers.

All manufacturing and production is done right here in Los Angeles, I use local businesses for casting, plating and finishing.
Stones and other materials are sourced worldwide when an item cannot be found locally. Even in those cases I have trusted U.S. mostly California based sources for these items Sunday Girl is committed to fair wages, supporting the local community by keeping and creating jobs in the US.

We are passionate about quality, and aim to create stylish pieces that you will want to gift to others or wear yourself for years to come.

About The Designer:

Designer Amy Di Lamarra started her career as a costume designer for Film and Television, but she always had an interest in fashion. Her first accessories venture Kudra was a handbag and belt line which sold to retailers worldwide including Anthropologie and better boutiques across the US. In 2008, faced with moving production overseas in order to stay competitive, Amy chose to move on from leather goods, and began to work as a freelance jewelry & accessory designer. She spent several years designing jewelry for brands such and Badgly Miscka and Hale Bob, but she missed having her own company and vision.

Sunday Girl started with a collection of zodiac necklaces which expanded into a full line of jewelry and officially launched in 2014. Amy recently re-branded her higher end collections into a line of it’s own, Amy DiLamarra jewelry. Both brands now sells online and in specialty boutiques, spas and hotels nationwide.

Additional policies and FAQs
► JEWELRY CARE TIPS
Always use care when taking items on/off. Please do not wear while exercising, swimming or showering. Please keep clean and dry when not in use and store in a safe place. Sterling silver and gold-filled components can last years of regular wear if taken care of properly.

STERLING SILVER
To clean gently rub with a baking soda & water paste; toothpaste & water; or jewelry cleaner, and rinse with water.

GOLD FILLED
To clean gently rub with dish wash liquid & water, or jewelry cleaner, then rinse with water.

RAW BRASS
Brass color deepens over time. Brass, like silver will patina (tarnish) if not cleaned. This is just oxidation and can be cleaned off, but if you do not clean off tarnish in a timely manner, tarnish may remain permanently. To brighten simply rub with lemon & water then rinse. It can be handy to keep a mixture of lemon & water in a small spray bottle.

GOLD* + SILVER PLATED
Gold and Silver plated components used are also laqcuered to protect the finish however you should never scrub plated components. Jewelry made with these materials can last significantly longer if cared for properly. Remove before exercising or showering; store in a clean and dry place, preferably a closed container; always handle with care, especially when taking on and off.
Gold Vermeil IS sterling silver that has been plated, so it should be cared for like plated jewelry.
