LEXI LU Jewelry Already Gaining Celebrity Fans!
LEXI LU is a fabulous up-and-coming jewelry company with unique designs for any “idol.” Just ask Katharine McPhee, who wore LEXI LU pieces on several occasions during her time on “American Idol.” LEXI LU has also been recently named a “Designer On the Rise,” and has been featured in several magazines included Lucky and People. So what is it that is so exciting about this new jewelry line?
The inspiration behind the jewelry line, LEXI LU, developed from the sheer desire to embrace life’s miracles and turn them into fulfilling realities. Becoming a new mom changed the priorities and perspective of designer, Allison Leigh Roden. Allison needed to discover a way to both, provide a stable future for her daughter and achieve a life-long dream. She has always had a passion for vintage clothes and jewelry, and wanted to bring new life to long forgotten treasures.
Through the encouragement of sister, Melissa Mastrolia, both designers took a leap of faith and began marketing their creations in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina. By using semi-precious stones, filigrees, and shells, Melissa has found the ideal canvas to display her art. Attached to every hand-crafted LEXI LU necklace and bracelet is a garnet charm, which represents the month Allison's daughter (Alexandra Luisa, for which the line was named) was born. Due to the rich and complimentary color of the stone, garnet is used in many of the LEXI LU designs.
The combination of Melissa’s fine arts talent and Allison’s sense of style enables these designers to create unique custom-made jewelry. The extensive array of designs will compliment the individual style of every woman inspire them to embrace their inner spirits.
