Who is VLM?
Hello and Welcome!
I'm Vanessa Louise Marie Arthur, the Designer and Creative Visionary behind VLM Jewelry.
I believe design should be timeless and make our lives more enjoyable.
Do you intentionally slow down to appreciate fine details and seek greater meaning from
who and what you choose to surround yourself with?
Do you travel to experience the cultural splendor this world has to offer and
collect meaningful pieces reminding you of that special place?
Do you appreciate artisan craftsmanship and pieces made to last a lifetime?
Do your most cherished pieces have a unique story behind them?
If you said YES to more than one of the above questions then you're in the right place! I value all those things too.
I created VLM Jewelry for sophisticated women like you, who appreciate thoughtful design and beautiful craftsmanship. My work is more than just jewelry... it's also a feeling, a lifestyle, a reminder to stop and smell the roses and appreciate the important things in life.
Before launching VLM Jewelry in late 2015 I was a one-time violinist, singer, and a fashion designer for over 18 years. Throughout my fashion design career I have worked as a women's wear designer for some of LA's top fashion brands including American Rag, BCBG, Trina Turk, Rachel Zoe and Robert Rodriguez. I've had the honor to dress Celebrities in my designs including Viola Davis, Mindy Kaling, Arden Myrin, Jessica Pare, Cindy Crawford and Musicians Sharon Jones, Mary J. Blige and Noelle Scaggs to name a few.
There is no greater joy than living my dream of being creative and delighting my customers with meaningful pieces that become part of their everyday lifestyle.
I know I've done my job well and it's the best feeling when a customer comes back and tells me:
"I've received so many compliments and I LOVE these earrings so much I haven't taken them off! "
The HARMONY COLLECTION is elegant with a modern edge and was inspired by my love for music and California mid-century modern design. It's my way of spreading harmony throughout the world with great design while bringing joy to women like YOU who proudly wear it! It's also such an honor that celebrities Lauren Lapkus, Arden Myrin and Noelle Scaggs have been early adopters of the collectoin. And I'm thrilled to share Tessa Thompson wears VLM Jewelry in the upcoming film CREED II!
I'm on a mission to spread a larger message through my work as an artist, designer and jeweler. I believe Art, Music and Design transcend gender, race and creed. These outlets for creativity are universal forces that have the power to bring mankind together. I think we can all agree that togetherness is an important theme now more than ever. Thank you for reading this far and I hope my work inspires you to share in the creative journey!
