For some, a creative space means a stark-white room that’s a blank canvas. Not so with our new favorite jewelry line, Ax + Apple
— it has the workspace we'd most like to copy. (There's a wall of scissors. Just wait.)
Founded by Jamie Lyn in 2009, the line is a mix of repurposed, one-of-a-kind vintage finds and new, retro-inspired designs. And, Lyn's space, situated smack in the middle of downtown Los Angeles, is nothing less than a treasure trove of curated curiosities — one we'd like to spend a few hours exploring. There are succulent-lined shelves, and gilded sculls in glass displays, which is all just background for a jewelry collection you're probably about to reach through your screen to try and grab. We're gonna say it: This is one of the most beautiful studios we've ever seen.
So, go ahead, browse the curios, obsess over the collection
, and meet the mastermind behind it all — right this way.
