It all started with a simple leather clutch I made for myself and the lady in the parking structure who wanted to buy it off me. The same happened with a few pieces of jewelry I had made for myself.

Seven years later Lili T. California has grown considerably and is now represented in quite a few stores all over the country. I love how in today’s marketplace you can live and work in the middle of the Mojave desert - in 29 Palms - and send your pieces out into the whole wide world. I love being swallowed by the solitary desert vastness that opens my mind in all directions and lets me be and work.

Before becoming a designer and an artisan I was a writer - art critic, columnist, copywriter, novelist. 

Anyway. Enough said. These are my bags, this is my jewelry. I hope you like some of my pieces.
