Designer: Crystal Streets
Describe LYRALOVESTAR in three words.
Celestial, inspirational and wearable
Why design? Is it more of a new venture for you or something you have always done and wanted to do?
As a celebrity stylist of over ten years, I’ve worked in fashion and costume design for most of my career. I’ve always had a special connection with accessories, so jewelry design was a natural transition for me. In my opinion, jewelry, unlike clothing, is more personable. It tells a story…where you purchased it , who gave it to you, for what special occasion etc..
Who do you design for?
I design for the fashion forward woman who lives in the moment, looks to the future, and believes in the power of passion and determination to make her dreams come true.
What inspires you?
I’ve been obsessed with moons and stars since my early childhood. A night’s sky is one the most beautiful spectacles. I am inspired by everything celestial and my appreciation of world culture from my extensive travels throughout Europe & Asia.
Do you have a design routine or does it happen more organically?
Each season, I get inspired by something very specific. For my Spring/Summer collection “Egyptian Nights”, I was inspired by the Egyptian culture. The textiles, pyramids and jewelry worn by pharaohs such as Cleopatra. I try to totally immerse myself in the culture and draw inspiration from my research. From there I transform those ideas into a collection but it still always has some celestial affinity.
Describe a day inside your studio.
Pandora, designing, playing with new materials and components, filling orders and endless hours in front of my computer :)
Which piece of yours is a personal favorite, why?
My favorite piece in my collection is the Estelle Runway Necklace. It truly represents LYRALOVESTAR on a whole. It’s very versatile..it can be worn daytime with just jeans & tee or at night with a great cocktail dress. It’s such a beauty with so many distinct celestial motifs.
How do you decide which materials to use?
Each season I try to introduce new materials to the collection based on the latest trends. I go to a lot of the major gem and jewelry trade shows to source new materials. For the latest collection I introduced neon colored Agate stones.
