My love for all things vintage is the inspiration behind Lauren Blythe Designs. Being able to tell a story through design is my passion.
I am the sole designer, photographer and owner of Lauren Blythe Designs. I run my business out of my studio in my home. Everything you see in my shop is from my hands to yours. From the beginning design concepts, searching for vintage components, to creating and photographing each design, it all happens here and by me.
I am a self taught designer and have learned the art of jewelry making through videos, books and practice. I started out over 10 years ago as a bridal jewelry and accessory designer called "Something Blue Tiaras" where I had my own website and connections to the Knot and the Wedding Channel. After my son was born, I took a little time off until he was in preschool part time and that's when Lauren Blythe Designs was created here on Etsy.
Like my bridal shop, my love of vintage jewelry has carried over into my designs in my shop today. Many of my designs use actual vintage pieces, while others have a vintage flair. I love searching for the right vintage piece to add to one of my designs. Be it a locket, a cameo, something floral, a rhinestone button, it is to be cherished. I will often take pins off the back of vintage pins or old screw backs off old earrings and create something new and exciting. I want my designs to tell a story. I want my pieces to be heirlooms, cherished for years to come. Not only do I have designs with vintage elements, many of my styles reflect a classic, Old Hollywood feel. I also try to keep up with today's trends and incorporate those in my designs, without loosing the look and feel of my shop.
I am proud to be a part of this wonderful Etsy community. I lead and am a member of several teams who help each other market their shops within Etsy.
