Hey! I'm Anna and I work, play and create in Covington, Louisiana. I'm always hustlin' (my favorite phrase) and honestly can never pin down exactly what passion I want to pursue next. I'm inspired by literally everything, which means there is always a project in progress.
A little snap shot:
- Day Job: communications specialist for a PR Firm. I completely love it, and sometimes I like to share professional tid bits of this nature.
- Night gig: After work, you can usually catch me at Meribo in Covington. This is our restaurant and my husband Vinnie's full-time career. I do all of the marketing and social media, plus you can see me waiting tables, bartending, hostessing or even washing dishes if I'm lucky!
- Side hustles (of which there are many): Calligraphy, Jewelry, Graphic Design... this website began as a place for me to showcase these things, and it still is! But lately my (two) full-time careers have taken center stage.
- Style: Simple, timeless, classic. Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn have been my inspiration since day one (My mom will tell you that as a child I had an affinity for sweaters with sequins and 3D objects, but who didn't?) You can catch me in stripes almost every day of the week, black, white, grey, and blue... but I do love a little bohemian flair now and then.
How It Started
Anna Liv Design began as a creative outlet way back in 2012 when I couldn’t find a very specific braided, beaded “statement” necklace. I looked everywhere for this imagined necklace until one day I decided to make it myself. Not long after, family and friends wanted me to make pieces for them, so I began selling customized pieces, tailoring each design for my customers.
Over the past few years, ALD has gained momentum, and in 2015, I added another passion of mine to the roster—hand lettering and calligraphy. I started by addressing wedding invitations and am still slowly learning the tech skillz to offer those pretties to you across the interspace.
This website is not just a place for jewelry and the goodies you came here for, but a space where I can share my passions for interior design, DIY projects, fashion and occasionally even some food. Ok, lots of food.
