Let me introduce you to LITTLE LUX, if you haven’t already heard of them. Dad [John] and daughter [Riley] are a precious duo who design and hand-create the cutest kids jewelry.
John began collecting vintage jewelry for Riley when she was born. He knew there would come a time when she would want to play “dress up.” Since neither of her dads wear jewelry, they began collecting a treasure chest full of amazing jewels. As Riley grew and developed her own fashion sense, she began picking out the jewels she wanted to keep.
John decided to craft his first one-of-a-kind adult necklace in early 2013. Riley watched, and soon was helping John create the first Gunner & Lux necklace. His first necklace was a success and began selling on-line and in local boutiques. Riley soon began helping dad craft necklaces. Dad thought it was great for fine motor development too – learning how to tie knots, use pliers and tweezers [as a preschool teacher, I, too, second this!].
Riley later developed her own line of necklaces for little fashionistas called LITTLE LUX. Not to mention, Riley is only seven, y’all. Riley and John, we love you!
