LA Lloyd Designs is a high fashion handmade jewelry and accessory line created by Lori Lloyd in 2014.
Question: What inspired you to start this line of body chains and jewelry sets?
I was inspired by some of my favorite intimate apparel lines. I created this body jewelry line of body chains, lariats, and other convertible jewelry pieces to redefine how we think of body jewelry and accessories. I design my body jewelry with the same concept as creating a garment, with each piece beginning on my dress form, much like a garment, being hand draped and fitted to accentuate the female form. My body chains are designed to be worn under; over; or with nothing at all. With each design, I adhere to the concept, that each piece should move with you through all the facets of your life, “from the boardroom to the bedroom”.
Question: What is your history and focus of design?
I studied fashion design at the Academy of Art University, spending two years in their graduate program before I decided to step away for the needs of my family. The desire to create never left me though, and a year later, after a failed collaboration with another designer, I found myself in my studio with three hundred feet of chain and an idea. Using the same principles as dress construction, I began to experiment and play with this new medium, and instantly fell in love.
Question: Talk a little bit about your design line and creation process?
With the advent of my first sample, things happened very quickly! In the last two years, I have developed over 100 designs, working in multiple chain finishes and shapes. I have also expanded my line to incorporate hand beaded pieces in onyx, labradorite and many other natural stones. All of my pieces are made by hand, and currently are manufactured in house. Along with my line pieces which I have developed for the wholesale market, I maintain a private book of business, creating one-of-a-kind, made to order body chains and harnesses. I am inspired by everything I come in contact with, and try to stay in touch with what is new and happening in social media, music, art, world events, and of course fashion. I travel to source materials, and constantly strive to improve the quality and voice of my jewelry line. I don’t just want stay on trend, I want to set the pace!
