You can't remember the last time you felt able to completely relax as yourself, always focusing on and caring for the people in your life. You even forget how incredible you are, surviving everything that gets thrown at you; you are a precious rock that epitomises your resilience and beauty.
I get it...
I'm Dee, designer and owner of LBD Gems.
I know what it is like to give so much of yourself supporting others that you forget how to give something to yourself and that's why I opened my business, I wanted to help myself remember my resilience and embrace more freedom.
Gemstones are the original inspiration for my designs, the variety of cuts, shapes and colours, the way they can be combined to create very different pieces. Something about the fact that, like me, gemstones are kept under pressure, but once free, reveal a vibrant resilience captivates and inspires a freedom in me to experiment, to allow designs to come together in their own unique way.
Feeling free to be myself isn't something I’ve always felt I could do, maybe you understand. You have the same desire to feel free from the pressures of daily living and need a reminder of your freedom. I know that was the case for me.
Growing up in a family of crafters, knitters, sewers, and cake decorators, the creative spark has always been there, but it had never found a home in my heart. It was late night channel flicking where I was captured by the brilliance of gemstones and jewellery; my creative spark was ignited. The second that first piece of jewellery was created, I knew I had found my own freedom, and I’ve been creating jewellery ever since!
I hope using a freedom approach expressed through gemstones, precious metals and different techniques means you'll always feel a reminder of your own resilience while wearing a LBD Gems original. Add LBD Gems to your favourites, there's more to come!
