About

For as long as I can remember,  I wanted to empower expression for myself and others with my first love and vehicle is fashion: clothing and accessories ... the voice that needs no words.

It was a way of thinking: If one worked with the big fashion brands, it would be possible to design for all types of people, give them a fashion voice ... turns out, the corporate world of fashion was taking more than it was giving. The communities, the environment,  their labor force AND their customers were not reaping the benefits of industrialized production of clothes. After working in many different facets of the fashion industry, I have taken the leap to design a label that reduces waste, puts money in to the community,  includes all types of  people,  is made with quality techniques/ materials  and sourcing that is sustainable. 

While all these factors of excellence,  quality and ethical practices are important... the most important part is that the pieces must be functional,  look FANTASTIC and feel AMAZING when they are the body. Attention to details... there is no lack of it in this line! 

IT IS possible to have fantastically great fashion pieces AND feel confident about what you have spent your money on, to consciously exercise support for community, sustainability and ethical practices ... quality over quantity all day EVERY day! 

Now : The goods!   Here is the first mini collection of Accessories....  


Belts SIZING:

Belts are made in two inch increments. 26, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 50, 52. Measurement is taken from the center hole. There are five holes one inch apart which will allow you to gain or lose and still be able to use the belt. If you measure between sizes round up. 

To measure yourself for a belt:  the best way is to measure your waist with tape measure. Second best is to measure the belt you wear from the most used hole to the center of the buckle. If you don't own a belt or a tape measure, order a belt the same size as your best fitting pants, but keep in mind that pant sizes are not always accurate and both shrink and stretch (best to use a tape measure).

Diana - Throckmorton Jones quality of craftsmanship is truly unmatched as are the uniqueness and individuality of each piece in the collection. Because she is a local artist, I have also had the privilege of watching her designs come to life and her attention given to each detail. What also makes her stand out is the countless hours spent collecting the vintage materials and the care given to using local resources. She has also generously shared her vast knowledge and time with children in teaching them how to design and assemble pieces using recyclable materials."

Wyatt C -  Lisa is quite an incredible person to work with. Along with her hard working ethics and her great creativity Lisa has a very relaxed and welcoming way when it comes to working a leading people in her vision. I would easily work with her again.  Best, Wyatt Sebastian
 

Ron  - I have had the pleasure of working with Lisa on several projects. Lisa has a unique blend of creativity, skill and business acumen. Lisa not only is an expert in textiles and their properties but she also has the uncanny ability to foresee design trends. Those two pieces combined with her creativity allows her ducts… the types of pieces that you want to hand down from generation to generation.   
 

Amy W -  Lisa provides creative and unique leather goods. Her excellent workmanship is evident when looking at her products. Lisa helped us to choose a belt that was perfect for my husband. Her coasters provided a one of a kind gift for my sister too. Besides having an excellent product, she is personable and easy to work with, which is so important in any business.
 

Sharon -  Lisa was a colleague and a fellow alumnus. She is a proactive, creative and tireless professional. Her expertise as a designer and entrepreneur is reflected in her pride and attention to detail in her work, artistic vision and loyal fan base of her line.  Lisa has the knowledge and creative pluck to transform and build a vision into a successful business and I absolutely recommend and support Lisa in entrepreneurial endeavors and look forward to having an opportunity to work together in the future.
 

Aaryn H-Throckmorton Jones is fantastic. I love the style and aesthetic - perfect for a structured bohemian look. Sexy and stylish. I and two of my friends invested in her leather work -- the detail is intricate and well designed. Lisa chooses colors that complement each other, kaleidoscope of movement in accessory. Brilliant.
 

Pat C - Lisa is great fun to work with. She is outspoken, creative, savvy, a great communicator and people connector, and on top of that she really does care for what she does and for the people around her. She has so much energy, so many great ideas, great experience not only as a designer but also is sales and business operations, she is a true renaissance woman!

Risks and challenges

Risk comes in the form of materials, while there is plenty of material out there , the nature of working with end lost/ small lots is that the materials and colors vary from lot to lot. I will make sure you know exactly what is coming and do my very best to make sure you love your pieces!
While we hope no delays occur, should anything come up we will be sure to communicate it with you.
