Designer Feature / Inspiration

Meet Jen Lorang of Alchemilla Jewelry

March 1, 2018

What better way to begin International Women’s Month than to feature Jen Lorang, human rights activist and designer/owner of Alchemilla Jewelry. Her collection is handmade in Oakland, CA, where she employs a small team of proudly queer women to create the beauty that is Alchemilla. 

Not only is the line a crowd favorite at Ode, but it's a brand that uses its platform to help reshape the social perspective. Her models gracefully traverse all spectrums of gender, color, and age. She donates to those who ask, and 10% of online sales goes to local Black Lives Matter organizers.

Lorang’s mission is to “create a strong femme aesthetic that celebrates community and collaboration rather than one that tells you to compete or compare yourself to other women or that you have to be skinny, rich, white, binary, etc, in order to thrive in this world.” 

Meet this powerfully beautiful woman and shop her equally-as-stunning collection this Friday, March 2nd,  6-8PM, at Ode. Hope to see you there! If you can't make it for the reception, the collection will be around all weekend and into next week.
