The YCL Story
YCL creates sophisticated jewellery for the modern & mindful woman. Our designs draw on timeless looks to create pieces for style savvy women.
On a deeper level, each piece of embraces principals of sacred geometry & feature crystals intentionally chosen to support our #YCLWomen live wholeheartedly & manifest their wildest dreams.
I guess I don’t really think about that, I just ensure that everyday I am making choices that align with my values & intuition, & this is how I operate our brand & connect with our team, on a daily basis. I believe there is abundance out there for all of us.
YCL started on my high school desk when I was 21, with no business training or professional jewellery making training or experience.
I am now 24, & knowing that our designs are worn by tens of thousands of women all around the world is just so heart warming, & feels quite surreal most of the time.
