Louisiana Allure owner and designer, Lindz Jones, and I met at the RAW Artist show here in New Orleans, this past December. As it turns out, her brother and my husband work at the same company and she’s also friends with Megan Bunnell, one of the makeup artists that I hire for my Beauty Portrait Sessions.
I pitched Lindz on the idea of doing a photo shoot for her jewelry line, Louisiana Allure. She loved the idea and we were luckily able to get Megan to do the makeup for the shoot. At the same RAW show was aspiring model, Deborah Akinniyi, who we all wanted to be our model for the shoot. The woman has cheekbones for days!
Louisiana Allure has a very earthy, but sophisticated feel. The custom designed pieces are my favorites, like this stunning and delicate earring and necklace set. I love that she created a geometric design with the wire and paired it with the fluid shape of the pearls.
I love working with other women and helping them grow their businesses! Lindz works hard on her jewelry and is constantly learning new techniques to expand her jewelry line. I can’t wait to see how her work changes and evolves. The last time we spoke, she was teaching herself how to solder!
Lindz sells her work at the Mandeville Trailhead Market at 675 Laffite Street on Saturdays. Be sure to stop by and check out her jewelry in person. Mother’s Day is coming up! Her sets would makes wonderful gifts. She often sells out, so get there early!
