Several weeks ago, while in New York, Lauren and I spent the afternoon with the ingenious and affable Lisa Salzer at her Lulu Frost headquarters. We both have been fans of the brand since the launch of her iconic Plaza collection, so it was an absolute treat delving into Lisa’s world of vintage inspired baubles and costume jewelry. After previewing Lulu Frost and George Frost‘s upcoming collections, drooling over a stunning array of one-of-a-kind pieces, watching an impending J.Crew collaboration come to life, sifting through an extensive collection of antique jewelry and found objects, and gazing upon her awe-inspiring mood board, it was clear that Lisa’s passion for her business and craft is in a class of its own.
