After I drop the boys at school and maybe run a quick errand, I’m at the workshop, dreaming, creating, connecting and planning. It’s bright space that’s half industrial, half inspirational. I don’t talk about it enough, but we have a fantastic team that makes things happen. They’re the ones that answer your phone calls, polish your jewelry, prepare packages to be shipping and make Lisa Leonard Designs run on a daily basis. I am humbled and grateful on a daily basis to work with this team.
Want to know something funny? I’m actually an introvert. I can be shy and sometimes I have to give myself a pep talk to jump in, get to know people and engage in larger group situations. In the workshop I can be quiet, but I’m trying to stretch myself and be more chatty and conversational.
For me, coffee is not optional. 😉
We store jewelry components in these large cabinets and I seriously love to go through the pieces, dream up different combinations and get creative.
This is where the customization happens. It’s a labor intensive process but the end result means YOU have YOUR special people close to your heart. And I love that.
Have you seen the new ‘my wildflower’s necklace? It’s about celebrating a love that grows wild and free. It speaks to my heart.
The backside of each tag is hand-stamped with your special name.
It’s surreal to have a team working behind the scenes. I remember working alone at my kitchen table in the early days-sometimes I have to pinch myself.
Today I’m down in LA with David, visiting the orthopedic hip/leg specialist at UCLA. Things continue to buzz in the workshop.
We’re thrilled to introduce the new wildflowers necklace! Don’t you love it? There will be many, probably hundreds of these created and shipping out this week. Incredible.
Which flower is your favorite?
