Leeorah Betan-Hartman has been making jewelry since she was in high school. Her passion for jewelry started at a young age when she would make earrings and necklaces from beads and wire. Her signature design is inspired by the forms and movement found in nature. This place of inspiration is a constant evolution for design and expansion of her collection.  Everyone has a unique perspective and a unique way of showing it. If it is something everyone sees everyday, or something only one person has seen, it will never be seen the same way twice. All of Lulu & Shay jewelry are made by hand with a great attention to detail and quality.

Leeorah tries to embody her perspective through her inspirations in what she likes to create.  It also allows her to be aware of her surroundings and be more connected to them, making the day-to-day a much more vibrant and rich experience. Lulu & Shay is inspired by the desire to both adorn and connect through the jewelry we wear. Wearing jewelry can be whimsical and at the same time express our inner values and feelings.  It can be a true statement of ourselves and the hope is that people who wear Lulu & Shay pieces feel more connected to their environment and the world. Lulu & Shay also tries to give back by contributing to charities that reflect our beliefs and ideals. You can find more information on these charities on the "Giving Back" page.

Leeorah works in both gold and silver and accents her pieces with diamonds and other semi-precious stones. Pieces can be custom ordered. Lulu and Shay jewelry is all handmade.  Lulu & Shay handcrafts all of our pieces using only Sterling Silver, 14K and 18K Gold. All metals come from recycled or reclaimed sources. You can be confident knowing that your piece avoids invasive environmental mining by instead reusing already existing metals. We also use 100% recycled packaging as well as try to give back to our environment and community by donating to Friends of the Earth, Art Start, Best Friends Animal Society, Heifer International and many more!

Leeorah works and lives in Brooklyn, NY with her husband and three children.

Additional Policies and FAQs

RING SIZES:
All the pieces can be made by special order to specific ring sizes. Please contact us at info@luluandshay.com if you need help finding your ring size.

JEWELRY CARE:
All metals including gold can oxidize over time or if they are not cared for properly. Make sure to protect your jewelry from perfumes or other cosmetics as well as from bleach or detergents. Over time matte jewelry burnishes with wear. It can be re-matted by rubbing with a paste of baking soda and water, or gently brushing with a green 3M scrubbie pad. Sterling silver and 14k gold jewelry is easily cleaned with regular dish soap and water. Tarnish or darkening of the metal, especially in recesses of the piece, is caused by oxidation of the surface layer of metal. It occurs over time with exposure to air and moisture. Wearing your jewelry in the water or during bathing will speed up tarnishing. Storing your jewelry in a dry airtight container will inhibit tarnish. Silver cleaner form the hardware or pharmacy is an easy way to clean the tarnish from your silver and gold jewelry.
