Jay Beyond Jewelry: The Season for Travel
The man behind the brand – Jay Landa – is far more than jewelry. He's a stylist. He's a world traveler. He's passionate about equality and human rights. He's a lover of animals (especially his Frenchie Moe). He loves a good vodka martini. And that only scratches the surface.
Introducing our newest blog series, Jay Beyond Jewelry, where we ask Jay a few curious and quirky questions to better understand the man that drags you out in jewels.
Q: Everyone's style switches with the seasons. So, what's your favorite piece of clothing and jewelry in your summer wardrobe?
A: Nothing says summer like colorful beads and layers of light necklaces. We show more skin during the hot summer months, so you’re more of a canvas to show off your personality. I immediately add some turquoise and my favorite mammoth ivory beads to my wrist story! Summer wardrobe musts consist of comfortable cutoff shorts and the perfect white tee.
Q: What is the most interesting place you've traveled?
A. Hard to say, but India comes to mind. I felt so far away from home. I was swept away by the smells, colors, and people! Truly magical.
Q. What is something you've never done and have always wanted to?
A. I would love to know how to sail and take a week off with friends on a sailboat.
Q. What fictional place would you like to go to?
A. Hmmm, I had to think about this one. The Gatsby Mansion - the grandeur of the architecture and the time period. Who doesn't love a good decadent party! Or Pandora from Avatar – the lushness and harmony of the island seems intoxicating!
Q. What's your favorite song for the summer?
A. “Holiday” by Madonna.
