Jewelry Tuesday – Designer Lynn Thomas

What inspired you to start creating jewelry?
Jewelry has always been a family business. Beginning with my great, great grandfather, my family has always focused on quality jewelry & customer service. Having grown up in the diamond industry and studying with Gemological Institute of America (GIA); my ex-husband and I opened our own very successful diamond jewelry business. As a result of a divorce I chose the home and my children over business and found myself starting from scratch. I chose to venture into Sterling Silver and unique gemstones to offer a more affordable line of jewelry and opened “Lasting Impressions”. My vision is to offer gorgeous jewelry that is unique and reasonably priced. With the explosion of the Internet & the World Wide Web I opened Lady Lynn’s Boutique to provide women around the world with stunning designer jewelry without the ridiculous jewelry store or boutique markup. My well developed sense of fashion comes from my mother who was a model in New York City. She instilled in me at an early age, how to use jewelry to enhance your outfit & create a unique presence without following the pack.
