The story is short: Lauren’s love of yoga and fashion needed a fusion. Pieces to go with yoga pants or a little black dress. She wanted beautiful, blingtastic jewelry that also represented who she was as a yogi. One snowy afternoon, Lauren made herself a mala out of pearls she had bought during travels in Southern China. After compliments from friends, family, students and having a stranger make a purchase right off her neck, Avigna Jewelry was born.
