About the instructors:

Amanda Thomas started her accessories line in 2005 once her after-school obsession parlayed into her own line of accessories. After a chance encounter with a buyer at Fred Segal, they picked up the entire line for their stores and by the age of 16, Luv Aj was officially created.

As a recent grad from Otis College of Art and Design, Amanda has learned from the best, interning with clothing designer Rachel Pally, celebrity fashion stylists Cristina Ehrlich and Estee Stanley, and the lovely ladies at the online magazine Who What Wear. These opportunities have inspired Amanda to pursue her love of jewelry and eventually expand Luv Aj to boutiques across the nation, leading to its popularity among starlets and clients such as Jessica Alba, Kylie Jenner, Nicole Richie, and Miley Cyrus who admire her signature heavy-metal spikes and layered chains. The 27 year-old designer combines a worn and torn edginess with a hint of femininity in her line of jewelry, that ranges from body-chains to handpieces and everything in between. As a recent addition to 2015 Forbe’s ’30 Under 30’ list, designer Amanda Thomas continues to expand Luv Aj and hopes to adorn the whole  world in her badass bling.    http://www.luvaj.com/

Jamie Lyn. Jamie started Ax+Apple in a little garage apartment in Austin. As the demand grew so did the need for space and eventually it transformed into working in a two bedroom house with her best friend Jessica. When they got their first order with Free People, they were mid-production on the order, necklaces hanging from every lamp, picture frame and door knob and Jamie felt that working from home just wasn’t appropriate anymore.  It was then that she figured it was time to move the company to LA. It has been a relationship made in heaven ever since.  Featured in W, Elle, Allure and WWD their products are sold in dozens of retail shops internationally.
