Friday Fan Feature: Gina Young Designer

During the recent summer road show, Lori met with a Lori Bonn fan who is an amazing talented young designer. She is filled with energy and she has a big vision; we're so moved and inspired by her story. Follow along for our chat with Gina below:

TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF

I'm 15 years old. I began collecting jewelry when I was 11. I make jewelry and have a buisness called Be The Dreamer. I love drawing and writing. I do a lot of fantasy writing. I'm a total bohemian girl! I love clothes and big gems.
 

HOW DID YOU COME ACROSS LORI BONN AND WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO THE BRAND?

On my 11th birthday I stumbled acrossed Terry Ivory's Jewelry on the Ocean City NJ boardwalk. I saw the Bonn Bons and instantly fell in love! My first charm was "Shake Your Bonn Bon".  I never thought I would have such a huge collection! I'm in love with ever single one of them.  I think what attracted me to the brand was how unique they were and I could make each bracelet my own style. There are so many collect.  Each one is a work of art! Also each one has such a cute name!
 

IF YOU HAD TO PICK, WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE EVER JEWELRY FROM LORI BONN - AND WHY? 

Oh, why do you have to make me pick a favorite? Haha. I have to say the little moon and stars charm.  It was a prototype that Lori had brought with her to Terry's last week.  I instantly fell in love with it when I saw it. I've always had a passion for astronomy (I'd actually love to be an Astrobiologist!) and the sky. Also the "Sparrow Me The Details" charm! It has a special meaning to me.

YOUR GO TO OUTFIT FOR A SUNDAY BRUNCH?

My go too outfit for Brunch is a long sleeve white shirt with a black and white houndstooth swing skirt, black leggings and boots, and red lipstick (with my Bonn Bons of course!)

 

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE SEASON?

My favorite season is fall! I love bringing out my cute scarves, boots, and sweaters, and I can never have too much pumpkin spice coffee!



INALLY, TELL US ABOUT YOUR GOALS AND DREAMS:

One of my goals is to have a successful online based shop for Be The Dreamer by my senior year of High School (5% of profits from my jewelry shop go to Food for the Hungry).
 
Eventually I would love to learn to solder and work with metal.  I love beading and wire wrapping but I want to expand my skills to soldering! Also it's a dream of mine to go to the Tucson Gem Event in Arizona! Most of the jewelry designers I admire go and I think I would learn so much and acquire so many amazing finds! On a large scale, my main goal is to travel the world to gemstone mines and hand pick gems to create amazing jewelry with!
