There’s no place like home. Home for us is Orange County, California. We have lived in the OC for more than 15 years now. We moved here when Emi was a toddler and I was expecting Chloe. It was easy to fall in love with this place. There’s nothing like coastal living. We have lived in quite a few cities throughout Orange County, with Dana Point and now Laguna Niguel (our current residence) being our favorites!
We often pinch ourselves, realizing that we live in a place where many love to vacation. There is something about coastal living that is modern and gracefully elegant. I also love the relaxed, upbeat, and sunny energy I feel every day. It thoroughly invigorates and inspires me. I find myself moved by the architecture and chill aesthetic that Orange County naturally imbues. This effortlessly “cool vibes” style that many people love to emulate and enjoy. And on the other hand, I admire the classic sophistication that Orange County embodies and love to manifest this in my clothing style and jewelry selections.
Petit Anjou is a jewelry brand that is based right here in Orange County, specifically Newport Coast. The founder, Jessica Liu, created her jewelry studio to satisfy her creative and artistic needs that were not met as an attorney. Her love for metalsmithing grew into a full-time hobby that fueled the birth of Petit Anjou, meaning “small Anjou pear” in French.
Like Jessica, I, too, have sensitive skin and need to be careful when choosing what I wear. Her high-quality pieces are made from hand using recycled sterling silver, 14k or 18k gold, and ethically sourced gemstones. Her pieces are so beautiful and well made. I look forward to gifting my girls with these pieces when that special moment arrives.
Her elegant pieces of jewelry are playful and sophisticatedly captured in shapes that are bold and sculptural. Wearing my pieces reminds me of the incredible art I saw at the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach recently. Petit Anjou features jewelry pieces that are inspired by Jessica’s affinity for texture and visual movement in art. I love that her jewelry has the perfect combination of refinement and fluidity that reminds me of the coastal waves near my home.
And of course, I love to support businesses that have a heart and give back. It is important to Jessica to give to causes that make a positive impact in our world, including conquering injustice, protecting human and animal rights, and caring for and preserving our beautiful planet. I invite you to check out Petit Anjou and its many elegant jewelry pieces that you will come to wear time and time again.
