  • 6 Year Anniversary

    I can't believe it-- but this year marks our 6th year in business! None of this would be possible without YOU. Every purchase, every kind word, every piece of advice, every hug, every shared connection has brought us to this place. right. now.

    I am overwhelmed when I look back. It hasn't been easy, and it most definitely hasn't always been glamorous! But I couldn't imagine spending my life working on anything else but building this brand and the community around it.

    I will keep this short, and end with a thank-you. To everyone who thought I could, before I knew I could. To everyone who silently cheers me on. To everyone who spreads kindness. To everyone who shows up. Thank-you, I wouldn't want to be on this journey with any one else.

    Here's a few highlights from the last 6 years!



    The first collection went live! (Look at that statement necklace!)



    I focused on one of a kind designs. I wanted to create pieces that no one had ever seen before.



    Here I am setting up at the first boutique that carried my one of a kind designs. This was a very exciting day:)


    We turned our front room into a studio! I worked a day job and continued to build the business on the side.



    We opened the new site, a whole new collection, and really started to focus on branding and building community. This was a turning point for LYD!



    After years of working quietly behind the scenes, I started taking part in local pop-ups. This took a huge amount of courage for me, as it was terrifying to showcase to the world-- in person! But by far, the most rewarding challenge I have taken on:)


    A little press goes a long way! We teamed up with I Like Her Style Vancouver Magazine for their Holiday Gift Guide, what a wonderful way to be celebrated!



    This brings us up to date! I couldn't be prouder of this journey. These are just a few of the highlights. There are so many more ups and downs in this story, but these are a few of my favourite moments. Thank-you for being a part of it!
