If you were to ask women what brings a smile to their faces on any given day, the overwhelming response would have to be bright and shining jewelry. We all love to be surrounded in gorgeous and opulent jewels.
A jewelry designer with a flair for fine fashion and a unique approach to outfitting a woman is Lizz Roberts of LZZR Jewelry who creates earth-friendly jewelry. But that is only the beginning. All of her pieces within the line are made exclusively by hand and crafted in repurposed bronze and copper scrap material which is found in a local metals factory in the Los Angeles area.
Roberts produces sculptural rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets which are worn by musicians, American authors, fashion bloggers such as Viviere Bella, stylists Emily and Merritt and actress Grace Helbig, just to name a few of her loyal customers.
Lizz Roberts has that interesting approach to materials in her blood. Growing up, her family was in the wholesale lumber business which immediately drew her design eye towards natural shapes in an architectural setting. Just this month, she has launched her new CASE line which includes sculptural rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets. The styles are crafted in 10K and sterling silver. The newest knuckle rings are the latest craze amongst editors.
Rectangle shapes are the building blocks of the majority of these pieces. Produced by a spare rectangle and constructed in raw bronze, copper,10k gold, and sterling silver - the surfaces may contain nicks and scratches throughout which are seen as brush strokes and the artist’s own signature.Sustainable, local production is ingrained in the designer’s philosophy. Roberts uses lemon juice and salt to clean up oxidation vs. traditional techniques that would normally involve harmful chemicals. With continued wear, the surface of each piece collects a patina of fingerprints and scuffs from each person or surface that it has touched.
The creativity process continues to evolve as LZZR Jewelry makes its mark on the jewelry industry. Lizz Roberts understands the simplicity of beauty and the purpose of every piece of jewelry that adorns a woman.
