This past month one of my favorite jewelry designers opened a beautiful store front in Santa Monica. I have been a fan of Chan Luu for about ten years now, and as the line has grown the pieces become more special each year.
Chan Luu was born and raised in South Vietnam. She had a passion for designing at a very young age, recalling gathering seashells from along the shore and spending hours handcrafting one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry for herself and friends.
Chan Luu is a Los Angeles based contemporary lifestyle brand offering handcrafted jewelry, scarf and apparel products. The designs combine cultural elements found worldwide with a modern California influence to create the signature style.
