Annika's graduation jewelry wish list

Annika's graduation jewelry wish list

Annika is a college senior, graduating from the University of Arizona. She's a studio art major, and an amazing portrait photographer. Annika has built an impressive senior, graduate and portraiture business - all while being a college student. Check out her website here!

For the last year, Annika has been taking photos of my jewelry on women so I have a portfolio of lifestyle shots. She thrives taking photos of people in nature. I appreciate how she balances model, jewelry, and background. Plus, Annika makes her subjects feel so comfortable.

I asked Annika which Lila Clare Jewelry piece she'd like for graduation, and she sent me her nine favorites! Here is Annika's jewelry graduation gift wish list:

Cactus Skeleton Hoop Post Earrings

Slender Cactus Skeleton Ring

The Desert Botanic Collection highlights the beauty of the Tucson desert. These pieces are made from the actual skeleton of the prickly pear cactus, so this jewelry is the perfect gift for someone who has a personal connection to the desert. For Annika, who is moving home to Oregon, cactus jewelry could hold particular meaning as a reminder of her time spent living in the desert. Wearing these pieces will be a way for Annika to hold onto memories of this place and time, even as she moves on to new experiences.
