Today the fed ex man dropped off a sweet little package from one of my most favorite people -Lori Epner of CLEEO COLLECTION. She crafted a custom bracelet from her knaughty collection for me that she hand crocheted using nylon string from Germany with silver seed beads, with a sterling silver J & V for my boys! It’s so beautiful!
Here is a little info on her cute company and how it all started!
Inspired by many aspects of my life; fashion, photography, my family & friends, a love of vintage and classic glamour, an obsession for jewelry and all things sparkling…“C” represents Cece (my great aunt), “LEE” are my initials and “O” is the emotional reaction of a woman, responding to something she adores, upon seeing it for the first time.
This summer 2010 “Knaughty” Collection was inspired by all the fun, balmy summer nights of the past- growing up in FL, the weather was always warm…
Some of my best friends through high school and college and even currently have shared many laughs, gossiping about moment’s from summers past.
The name Knaughty is a play on words with knot and naughty- each bracelet reminded me of a special friend and a particular funny moment I had shared with them. I still have many girlfriends clamoring for a namesake bracelet!
Each one has something unique about it- some have sterling silver, rose gold or gold vermeil charms. I made an initial bracelet for a friend as a baby gift and then all the mom’s requested one with their children’s initials on them. It’s a cute keepsake and something you can wear everyday. On this particular style I let them (the moms) pick their color cord and beads- all initials are sterling silver in 2 sizes and all the findings; clasp, crimps and CLEEO tag are also sterling silver.
The Knaughty Cleeo initial bracelet (1-2 initials) is $70. I love mixing it with some of the CLEEO stretchy bracelets or even another Knaughty style for some “bling”!
But I tell all my clients- it’s really up to you to decide how to layer and mix it with your own jewelry- just know that “more is always more” with jewelry!
