Designer Spotlight was born out of a vision to give local designers a new platform to showcase their designs. I’m excited to share ladha jewelry with you all! I met Lindsay when we were on the Jewelry & Accessories Buying team at Cost Plus World Market. We both had a deep love for art, jewelry & design. We made a great team and I’m excited to see our paths cross again as jewelry entrepreneurs! Ladha fine jewelry line is timeless, modern and made from the heart.
ladha was born from a desire to create timeless and versatile jewelry inspired by worldly and fearless women.
Lindsay was raised by strong women who traveled the globe and taught her to value and appreciate cultural aesthetics and all things artistic. She grew up admiring the many precious and wearable treasures that would later be handed down as family heirlooms. Her hope is to create elegant and understated jewelry that evokes a sense of worldliness.
“ladha” is the Swahili word for Flavor, synonymous with pleasure, taste and joy. As we dress ourselves our jewelry serves as “seasoning” and helps to bring out our true personality and individual style. The intent behind Lindsay’s designs is to promote self-expression and confidence. Her jewelry allows the wearer to shine as they move through the world, flaunting their unique flavor.
All jewelry is made by hand with love in Lindsay’s Oakland, California studio.
Each designer will choose an organization to donate 5% of their profits to. As a brand dedicated to social impact and change, we are committed to giving back to our community.
The charity that Lindsay chose to support is Black Girls Code, an awesome Black owned organization that helps to introduce computer coding lessons to young girls from underrepresented communities.
