Jewelry Designer Gets National Attention

The Bakersfield Californian:

When twenty-somethings Kirby and Lauren Krausgrill go to a club or hang out with their girlfriends, you can bet at some point they’ll sell jewelry off their ears and necks.

Mom makes their accessories, and they’re proud of it. While celebrating the New Year at chic Clift Hotel in San Francisco, Lauren sold her mother’s pearl-crystal tiara to a stranger in the elevator.

Lyndia Krausgrill’s Swarovski-encrusted creations were cool enough to catch the attention of In Style magazine. Two of her pieces are featured in the February issue: The gold-filled hoop earrings with Swarovski crystals that go for $90, and the drop style, which runs $88.

Krausgrill, 51, owns Lyndia K. Jewelry. She sells online at and exclusively in Bella at The Marketplace. She’s also sold her work in Laguna Beach and Oxnard.

Bella owner Heidi Sullivan was thrilled to see her store’s name mentioned in the In Style feature.

“When we travel and go to markets to buy for the store, we see similar jewelry to Lyndia’s, but hers has a little more unique twist,” she said.
