Recently, we joined a slew of lovely LA ladies to ogle Australian jewelry designer Lucy Folk’s summer collection at the esteemed Melrose Avenue shop, Ten Over Six.

Since Lucy is inspired mainly by food – this time the tropical Brazilian sort – we couldn’t wait to lay our eyes on the fun, fruity offerings Lucy had created – likely, we supposed, the perfect pieces to wear while slurping up a tropical Citrus 2 or, our to-die-for favorite, Pineapple Pear Ginger Mint!

Over Brazilian cocktails and – what else? – spicy watermelon and pineapple wedges, Lucy thrilled us with her latest collection of summer-loving baubles, from outrageous pineapple earrings to more subtle watermelon ‘pip’ rings perfect for every kind of fashionista!

While in LA, there are a few things this health-conscious designer must do and we asked this fun-loving Aussie to fill us in on her must-see spots whenever she’s in town!

Fave experiences: Shopping at The Vine America party store (for party props), El Mercado (for Mexican fanfare), dining at Bar Ama (Downtown) and experiencing the James Turrell show at LACMA. I also just love seeing the Claes Oldenburg sculpture facing Wilshire by the La Brea tar pits!

Fave shopping: Ten Over Six where I’m launching my new collection, Stella McCartney on Beverly, Tortoise on Abbott Kinney, the MOCA Gift store and Mohawk General Store. While at MOCA I got my hands on a ridiculously cool Urs Fischer croissant attachment for my iPhone!

cafes to visit: I love experiencing East LA vs West LA via the shops and cafes of Venice and Silverlake! My favorites are AXE in Venice and Naturewell (the best Kale smoothies) in Silverlake.

getting outdoors: A visit to Trails Cafe in Griffith Park is also a necessity each time I’m in L.A, followed by a hike up to the Observatory. I’m a keen Runyon Canyon fan as well and always manage to slip in a pass by Stahl House to imagine what it would be like living in the Hollywood Hills!

Check out Lucy Folk‘s newest collection at Ten Over Six and snap up a fruity new look to match your fave Pressed Juicery flavor.
