profile: jason hoehn of huckleberry jewelry

Jason Hoehn’s jewelry line, Huckleberry Ltd, makes us feel a certain special kinda way. it ignites that badass side of the deuxmoi gals inspiring us to YOLO. like we totally see ourselves wearing his diamond pave can top necklace while taking shots of jack daniels and getting tattooed by a hot bearded dude named freddy who we met while sharking a game of pool (was that an episode of melrose place? probs).

Huckleberry Ltd. was founded by Jason in dec 2013 after a few years of “friendly prodding” (did you mean persistent badgering??) by Jason’s co-founder and business partner charles lew. Jason, who was a jewelry industry vet at this point, had been designing fine jewelry for fifteen years and was previously the founder and lead designer for nefarious fine jewelry. Huckleberry launched at Roseark (a SICK jewelry store in la) in march 2014. if you love beautifully designed jewelry that is sexy and bold-one of our favorite pieces is the reversible love/fuck ring in rose gold-than go to www.huckleberryltd.comadorn yourself in something hot and sassy and we promise you will feel like angelina jolie circa 2001 (minus billy bob thornton, sorry bb). see jason’s favs below…
