HOW IT ALL STARTED...
Designer and Creator of AVL
"I love to love, I love to create, I am art"
Starting my journey as a Fashion designer at the age 12, I have always had a spark for jewelry. "Whats fashion without jewelry?" From the age 12 to 16 I divulged myself as a Fashion Designer. Making something new became a everyday habit, Fashion became my social life.
From selling drawings in middle school to making costumes for my high school modeling team I was known as the creative ambitious one. Nurturing my incipient interest in Jewelry Design I began to make pieces for myself and wore them. Never thought of making it my career. Senior year of high school burgeoning attention from the jewelry I was wearing, I took orders and sold my jewelry to students, teachers and administrators.
THE BEGINNING OF AKEEKOE LAVEENA
With so much great feedback, I decided to start a new path as a Jewelry Designer and Akeekoe Laveena became my priority. With the helping hand of friends as models, I put together my own photo shoots. Promoting myself on popular social networks resulted into sales and getting booked for different events.
ALV ART INSPIRATIONS
"Oscar De La Renta, Zellhuas, Audrey Hepburn"
With the help of art classes I have learned the use of colors, My love for earth tones shined through my designs. Inspirations from nature and my love for different cultures gave my line a aesthetic tribe look with my own little twist.
NEVER KNOW WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS FOR ALV.
Knowing that patience is a virtue and success can not be made over night, I am adamant about making it in this industry. I must stay innovative, positive and constantly create. Stand above and be outlasting to the most common. Take materials to unlimited possibilities and never disappoint!
We create under the rules of having NO RULES!
The original of no originals.
Everyday AKEEKOE LAVEENA grows producing new techniques and art ideas.

WORDS FROM ME TO YOU
"Lets go beyond limits and know that as designers its more than just branding and finding success. Creating is what you love and sharing your art with others who acknowledge your talent and love your work as much as you do is the greatest feeling. Seeing them smile and get inspired should empower you to keep creating and learn that your mind and hands are beautiful pieces of art and your freedom."
Be FREE, Be YOU, CREATE!!
