I’d been hankering after Lauren Haupt Jewelry for a while. And like most hankerings, when I had a good reason to fulfill it – I did.
And then I lost one of her fabulous earbobs the first night I wore them out – to a large fashion show. I wanted to cry in my whiskey for a day or two, instead, I emailed her and asked if she’d be willing to sell me one 1/2 a pair to replace my lost friend. She would, graciously, and we struck up a great little conversation about independent artist entrepreneurship and the like.
Which led to this:
Needless to say, I now own several of her lovely pieces and I wear them constantly. I love simple – spot on design. I’m sure you do too. Lauren has been a favorite seller on etsy for quite some time as well. She’s known as Local Library there. Visit her website to learn more. She’s one talented, humble and gracious lady. It was a dream to use her work in an Unabashed apparel photoshoot. Thanks Lauren!
