Local jeweler provides bling to Hollywood
When we were working on last year's holiday gift guide, we came across Laura James's unique, hand-crafted jewelry adorned with semi-precious stones, vintage crystal, and intricate detailing. Little did we know, James was about to hit the big time.
In the December issue of Lucky magazine, a piece from James's recently unveiled line of eco-friendly jewelry (recycled brass and silver earrings) was featured as one of the shopping magazine’s green gifts.
Soon after, Twentieth Century Fox commissioned her jewelry for the upcoming movie They Came From Upstairs, starring Ashley Tisdale. "I am thrilled!" James says of the opportunity to go Hollywood.
Her newest collection was influenced by a "daintier, California style, which goes hand in hand with the upcoming spring/summer season," she says. Plus, she recently added a charm collection to her Web site, www.laurajamesjewelry.com .
You can find her jewelry at Luxe Home Couture, luca lu, Fresh, Ava Lilly’s, and BeBe Gallini's.
