Hidden Treasures is one of our newest collections and will be featured on-air Feb 7 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. CT. The unique tassels and charms allow you to personalize your jewelry with your own cherished moments. We are thrilled to sit down with the designers behind Hidden Treasures, Lyndy and Melissa, to discover this collection’s journey.
What is your favorite part about this line?
Melissa: The versatility, hands down. I love how these designs can kick any outfit into the next gear whether it’s by adding movement and a touch of whimsy to casual wear, or it’s by making a dramatic statement as a final touch to evening attire.
Lyndy: The overall concept of combining the tassels with the charms is quite unique. It’s a new take on a classic charm collection, with highly detailed charms, all sterling silver products and genuine gemstones. We wanted to make a collection that will keep our LC family delighted and inspire others to create and share their stories for generations to come.
What do you think of the journey of launching an entire line of jewelry from start to finish?
Melissa: It’s been a really exciting process. Working with our different teams here and in India has been integral to the development of the line. I think it takes a global perspective to create something truly special, and our team brings it!
Lyndy: The journey has been one of dedication and attention to detail. From the time that the concept was originally conceived to holding the pieces in my hands, it was incredible to be a part of the development. We could not emphasize enough that quality was and is the number one emphasis of this new collection.
Which charms of hidden treasure do you own andwhy are they significant to you?
Melissa: I have quite a few, but let me tell you about the ballerina and the ballet slipper charms. I was enrolled in ballet class at the age of 6. My instructor was a severe woman who quickly chose her favorites in the class, and then wouldn’t spare any time or consideration for the rest of us. Her chilly disposition and disdain did a lot to convince me that I couldn’t dance – and never would. For years I believed that to be true – but then in college I discovered swing dance, which led me to ballroom dance. I suddenly found I could dance and that I loved it! Since then, I’ve never really stopped, and this year I re-enrolled in ballet class and am very pleased to say that it’s wonderful, and I’m most certainly not a lost cause.
Lyndy: I love earrings, so it’s not a surprise that it was the first thing I wanted to own. I own earrings from the Ornate line and they feature tanzanite (my birthstone) in each tassel base. Attached to those are three charms from the uplift line. I have “dream” and “create” because they remind me to keep pushing forward, to hold on to the dreams and to create the reality I want to live. I have also attached the moon and stars charm to symbolize my husband. His name is Hamilton and I have always referred to him as my moon, as in “moon over my Hammy.” I am his sun and the people who have passed in our lives are the stars. We often say, I love you to the moon and back. He’s my soul mate, my person, my everything.
Would you be interested in creating another new line?
Melissa: Of course! Part of creating anything is coming up with a slew of great ideas, and then figuring out which ones belong in the current project. The ones that don’t make the cut this time become the seeds of the next great idea. We already have new charms and new tassel necklaces on the horizon – and they’ll be premiering in spring. Working on some new hidden details has also been a delight!
Lyndy: The short answer is yes, as only time will tell. I definitely have more ideas for jewelry and would like to explore a more European look here at the LC. As far as Hidden Treasures goes, not only will you see fresh concepts in the tassels, earrings, bracelets, rings and charms, but the prices will be so hot! We are also looking at expanding the collection to have a greater online presence. So be on the lookout for exclusive charm designs online!
