Jennifer Lopez and Viola Davis Jewelry - Lila & Eve

I love movies and TV! Part of the fun of running my jewelry business is getting to work with amazing people in the film and TV business. For example, my journey when I got the call from brilliant costume designer Ane Crabtree ("Masters of Sex", "Westworld") who was working on a little indie film called Lila & Eve. Oh and by the way, the movie stars Jennifer Lopez and Viola Davis.


I love love love Jennifer Lopez, I think she is one of the most beautiful and talented women on the planet! And Viola Davis? Killing it on the new Shonda Rhimes TV show "How to Get Away With Murder"? Amazing. I was so excited to be a part of this production!

Lila & Eve is a gritty drama about two moms who are grieving the loss of their kids to street violence. Eve (Jennifer Lopez) befriends Lila (Viola Davis) and together they start to take charge of finding out who murdered Lila's son. Their friendship is at the heart of this film, which was also produced by Viola Davis and her husband.

Movies are funny things - many get shot and then it takes months for them to see the light of day. Sometimes movies don't even make it to audiences! A small film like Lila & Eve is no different! It took only a few weeks to shoot and then it was a waiting game. Would the film hit theaters? It screened at the Sundance Film Festival, which was super exciting and then got picked up for release on demand and on iTunes, with a limited theater release in July 2015.

Watch Lila & Eve at a theater near you or on demand.

For Lila (Viola Davis), she wears a deep, dark, dimensional Drusy Dot Necklace. I think it's a great symbol of the depth of her grief and the many layers to the feelings she is grappling with.
