Designer, Lorena Ponis has spent the last nine years building and developing LOLO Jewellery & Accessories into one of the most recognized and sought after brands from the West Coast. Over the years, her designs have graced the pages of top fashion and bridal magazines, along with a variety of personalities from daytime dramas to hit reality TV shows, including The Young and the Restless, The Real Housewives of Vancouver, Canada’s Next Handyman Challenge, The Cupcake Girls and Million Dollar Neighbourhood, both on the OWN Network.
Known for her glamorous, classic, and effortless style inspired by the likes of Sophia Loren, Grace Kelly, and Jackie O, Lorena’s designs resonate with women who have an appreciation for versatility, exclusivity and timeless beauty.
Her fashionable, bespoke designer pieces are hand-crafted with care, using the finest Swarovski crystals, sterling silver, 14 karat gold-fill and semi-precious gemstones and include everything from necklaces, and earrings, to bracelets, bangles and striking cocktail rings. With more than 300 pieces in her collection, Lorena’s designs offer something for every occasion.
An entrepreneur at heart, Lorena originally pursued a career in international business, developing markets in Latin America as well as importing various products, before starting LOLO Jewellery & Accessories. Inherently creative, with a lifetime love for buying, wearing and designing all different types of accessories, Lorena saw an opportunity to turn her passion into a business that would enable her to build her own brand. In 2004, she began creating her first designs to introduce to the retail market, and within six months launched her first collection to local boutiques in Vancouver, B.C.
Today, LOLO Jewellery & Accessories can be found in select specialty boutiques across Canada and the U.S.
