profile: samantha conn of luna skye jewelry

the deuxmoi gals recently profiled Samantha Conn, designer and founder of the amazing jewelry line, Luna Skye. if you check out her insta (@lskyejewelry) and her blog on www.lskyejewelry.com, you’ll see why Luna Skye is all the rage with celebs and fashion enthusiasts everywhere right now. the line is BEYOND gorge with very simplistic, beachy designs, and you’ll quickly see how Samantha is influenced by growing up near the ocean in beautiful, santa monica, california (holla’ing at ya west coast!!!!).

but the dreamy/ethereal vibe of line, and the name “Luna Skye”, is derived mostly from her love for the moon. according to Samantha, believing that our ties to the moon are strong and its positive energy has helped her through difficult times; flushing out negative energy and influencing both emotions and spiritual growth. along with the moon, she fully believes in the healing powers of gemstones and crystal, incorporating them into her pieces. how dope is that?…we love all that kind of shit!

check out Samantha’s favs below and see why Luna Skye is a must have staple in our jewelry boxes…
