“If you made a trinket to remember someone you love that you’ve lost
Would you be able to outsource the labor to cut the basic costs
If you were offered something physical but attached was a memory
That was meant to truly honor not to play upon your empathy
Would you consider that this piece of purpose
Took passion to transform materials that otherwise are worthless
Subtract the physical goods and there's still something there
You can search your whole life but you've found s o m e w h e r e.”
Designer Lisa Brester began her journey in Los Angeles in 2011 as an exchange student from the University of Kentucky. With education in interior design, fine art and fashion design, she began working as an installation artist, an event coordinator and a wardrobe stylist. Her freelance experience undoubtedly laid the foundation for her to start her own business. Whether it was creating content for her friend's brands, volunteering at fashion shows, dying fabrics in her driveway or collaborating on various projects with other creatives, Lisa never turned down an opportunity to create and progress.
In February of 2016, her path suddenly shifted when Lisa’s mother was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. She immediately moved home to be her caretaker. During this emotional and stressful time, Lisa’s mother realized she needed a creative outlet to help cope. She suggested that Lisa pull out her old jewelry making supplies. And from that day on, Lisa made jewelry. And when her mother passed away, she turned her creative passion a business.
After taking time at home with family, she relocated back to LA to launch

PRODUCT and CARE
s o m e w h e r e. jewelry pieces are handmade which require delicate handling.
Each component is gold plated brass, gold fill or gold vermeil, so contact with water, perspiration, beauty products and perfume, or harsh chemicals like cleaning supplies will contribute to fading or tarnish.
If the jewelry is exposed to any of the above, gently wipe the piece with a soft jewelry cloth before storing it back in it’s handmade sleeper bag to preserve quality/vibrancy.
It is recommended that your jewels be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off.
