Good luck Leona with whatever you decide to do next! Xxxxxxxxxxxx
Oh no! I an genuinely gutted to see the end of LLROK, but VERY excited to see what you have to come! xo
as one of the first interns at LLROK I just have to say - YOU CAN DO IT LEONA! I know you can! And you will succeed wildly and we will all be itching to buy anything your magical little fingers create. My days as an intern at LLROK are some of my best memories of living in London Town, and for that you get a big ole THANK YOU! xxxx
If it's even half as good as Lady Luck, then it'll be a cracker. Thanks for giving me so much pleasure over the years with your lovely jewellery, & can't wait to see what's up your sleeve!
Oh my! Well - I can't pretend we're not blue to be saying adios to Lady Luck Rules OK, but we sure are excited to hear about your new and exciting solo project! Tell! Tell! We've definitely got our cute 'lil vintage vanity cases packed - ready to follow y'all on your grand journey! Wheep! Please do tell all! :) Good luck ladybug - we're rootin' (and tootin') for ya! xx
This post is so bitter-sweet!
Have been a long-time follower of lady luck.. I remeber the old website with the rocker jewellery and pin-badge necklaces. Literally everything on this site is Gorgeous! Usually have to stop myself even visiting because everything proves a temptation! Every piece of jewellery I've purchased from you never fails to get admiring looks and 'where did you get that?!' comments.
So sad to hear Lady Luck will be no longer, but EXTREMELY excited to se what you have up for crafty sleeves next.... Whatever it is, just dont be away for too long!!
For now, I'm off to snag my farewell lucky bag! Cant believe it will be the last thing I purchase from LLROK!! :(
Good Luck Leona & team... whatever it is, you guys can do it!
I'm sorry to hear that is is the end of Lady Luck, but l do wish you all the best with your new project! IIfirst heard of Lady Luck when I saw one of your charm bracelets in Sneak magazine (and that was a while ago!) so I immediately went on to this website and I've been a fan ever since, buying practically every piece you have created! So I just want to thank you for providing me with not only some fantastic jewellery, but for inspiring me through my teenage years. x x x
So sad to being saying goodbye to LLROK. I have bought so many goodies from you over the years. The sadness is coupled with lots of excitement to hear more about your new venture. Good luck. Vic x
Well so far all your comments are upliftingly positive, but all I can think of is NOOOOO! I can't pretend I'm not gutted to see you go! I guess all I can do is cross my fingers that everyone here is right and you will be back bigger and brighter than ever - and hopefully whatever you decide to do next, you'll still send me lovely parcels all the way to Aus. And how bittersweet that my last order had the best exchange rate. Go figure! LLROK - I LOVE YOU!!! xoxoxoxoxoxo
Good luck girl! I enjoyed everything u guys worked and made as a team. the stuff you guys had were kool and cute! and things i never seen before.That what made you guys different!
xox- jessica G =D
absolutely gutted... :( ( ( (
can't wait to see what happens next though! good luck!
Farewell LLROK...i remember strolling by your studio, when it was still the Superette Shop, one sunny afternoon, and fell in love with all the cute accessories and rocker jewellery. So I was more than over than moon when you spyed some of my humble knitted creatures at a wintery jumble sale, and asked if I could wholesale a few for you. It was a great experience and little launch pad into starting to work for myself. I learnt alot from the exposure I had from LLROK and can only hope I can achieve half as much as you have. You're a great inspiration Leona and I wish you all the best in your new creative adventure. I'm sure it will be awesome.x
I still adore my cherry earrings and tattoo necklace- shall miss you.
Oh NO - cant believe LLROK is coming to a sad end. I came to the last sample sale and bought bundles of treats but sadly I no longer live in London. I am gutted that I am going to miss out on the sale..grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
Good luck with your future project and I hope to partake in whatever that may be..
Well I'll miss your lovely online shop (I still wear my LLROK jewels from 6 years ago! And they still attract lots of nice comments!), but I guess I'll have to come and say hello to your new studio when I'm next down in London!
Wishing you all the best
Thank you for all the gorgeous jewellery I've had over the years from you and I will miss you all very much.
Good luck and best wishes for the future.
Thanks much kat x
I just read your 'Farewell' and wanted to say Bon Chance for your new venture, I'm sure it will be fab : )
Thanks for the LLROK,
The end of LLROK is a sad time :(
You've worked hard to produce lots of AMAZING jewellery over your time :)
I wish you all the best in your new projects, and just as a final goodbye, I reckon we should have a "Best Of" post in your journal, a way of posting all your favourite items of jewellery and moments of the past 7 years (or were they all your favourite?)
i remember the stall in portobello road and i think it was sam(your b/f//) in red trousers lol!
my first ever purchace was a vintage guitar brooch and a pin badge with chain still got them in my jewellery box:)
will b sad to see lady luck rules ok go, i will b down on saturday though for the sale:)
its been a very fun 7 years!!!
cant wait to see what u do next! for some reaosn im guessing cupcake shop but why would u need a studio for that?
I am adverse to modern technology so cannot follow you on twitter or facial book. Is there any way to stay up to date with your new project? Maybe messages sent by carrier pigeon? xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
No way!! So sad to hear it but glad it's to move on to bigger and better things. Good luck with everything and keep us posted.
I remember gasping as I opened my birthday present to reveal a beautiful russian doll necklace emblazoned with my name, I was so happy :) That is my favourite piece of jewellery - ever. Thankyou so much for the birdie necklace, shell belle necklace, ice cream brooch, russian doll necklace, personalised anchor necklace and the competition to win that gorgeous 'love' tote bag! I can't wait until my swag bag arrives! Good luck on your next venture.. I hope it can be as amazing as lady luck rules ok has been x
Well I can say the only thing that will benefit from the end of LLROK will be our bank balances because I have purchased so many things from you over the years! I think I first saw you in the shortlived ElleGirl when it was here in the UK when I was younger, and I haven't looked back! I get so many compliments on your pieces and the times I have come to see you at the clothes show at the NEC have been memorable, I will miss you so much! I wish you all the best in your new venture you totally deserve it, and I bet it will be a trillion times more fabulous! Got my farewell swagbag coming in the post as we speak and I will be wearing my logo necklace with memory and pride. :) Sweet Dreams LLROK! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
love + miss you already! good luck l xx x
I am sorry to see the end of LLROK but am very excited to see your new venture. I am positive it is going to be awesome. I am sure this was a very difficult decision to come to and have so much respect for you managing to say this no longer reflects who you are and what your interests are. I wish you the best of luck in following your passions. As for LLROK, I have so many gorgeous pieces from you, one of the first of which was the large lightening bolt lipstick single earring that you had, well years ago, unfortunately about a year ago it fell out of my ear and down the drain...thankfully I still have a number of other gorgeous items from you!!xxxxxxxx
I've been buying your jewellery for as long as I can remember - will be sad to see you guys go! But me, and many other people, will carry on wearing your gorgeous goods, so thank you for all the past and future fun and love we'll get from owning LLROK stuff!
Good luck with whatever you do next, all the best for the future! x
I'm really sad that LLROK is coming to an end but I wish you all the best in the future Leona!
For me personally, LLROK was the reason I started wearing jewellery. I remember looking on here and finding a necklace with a film canister on the end and begging my dad to let me use his card to buy it. It was my first purchase from you and it started a mini-love affair. I also remember going to the shop the day after you officially opened and you gave me a little goodie bag because I told you how much I loved everything you made. I still have it somewhere too! Anyway, I own so much of your jewellery that I have nowhere to put it anymore. Here's hoping the swag bag will fit somewhere!
Thanks for making such amazing items and I can't thank you enough for helping me find a love for jewellery! Good luck with everything in the future! xxx
My passionate affair with LLROK started when I found your Kiss single dangler and Debbie Harry music lover brooch at a boutique is Newtown, Sydney. And over the years I have collected so many fabtastic pieces, it's hard to choose favorites! I love my Valley Girl Hair Bobbles and my Ooh La La Guitar necklace. I love my Flying V earrings and my baby blue Docey Doe earrings; they mix and match so nicely with my NYC Cherry Pie dangler and my Ursula the Unicorn necklaces. I get so much wear out of my red glitter Fang earrings that they have a permanent home on my dresser.
There's a gold bambi glitter bow brooch I could never part with and lazer gun earrings that no-one will ever top. And a few teenybopper rings in their gorgeous felt cases that one girl described as "a dream come true!". And so many other gorgeous things! Nothing will ever top the excitement of opening up a lucky dip and seeing all the joy spill out onto my bedspread.
And there's so much more! Maybe too much more... I have little sweat band wrist cuffs, t-shirts and leggings (it's true, I do love T-Rex). I've won contests (Easter AND Halloween, no less!), I've watched movies (rock on Riff Randall!), and I've bopped away to tunes (Nikki and the Corvettes, no less). And I've even dragged my girlfriends all the wait to Port du Clignancourt markets to browse the vintage wares. My only regret is the holiday I spent with fam in England, when I ducked in to your shop and you were on lunch. I didn't want to stalk you like a crazy fan girl, so I didn't go back. :( So now I'll have to visit you when you start your new gig instead!
So THANK YOU LEONA for doing what you do! We don't see the blood, sweat and tears behind the brand but I'm sure they're there. I can't tell you how much I love everything I've ever ordered; I can feel the love and pride you put into every piece.
Love always from your Number 1 Fan, Emma. xxoo
I have loved your jewellery for a long time now but never have posted an order because my mum never had the time to give me her card details. I was so upset when i heard that LLROK was stopping so i begged and begged my mum to let me buy some things and she let me! Yey! I just got an e-mail from you guys telling me my things have been posted out and that i should comment on this :) I ordered the Rock n' Roll Kitten which is my all time favourite LLROK piece, Baby I Love You charm necklace, Pony charm necklace and a Call Me charm necklace. I am so sad that LLROK is stopping but I can't wait to see what is next :D
Love LLROK lots
So sad to see LLROK go! I can honestly say that it is because of you that I now run my own business making jewellery and selling vintage clothes. I spent my teenage years as an avid collector of your stuff, and was so inspired to see a young woman going out there and doing what she was passionate about, I decided to do the same! Our styles are quite different, but the inspiration is always there ;)
Good luck for the future!
P.S. Love my guitar necklace, it arrived today!
Good luck but not goodbye, We shall all be following your progress with baited breath!!!
Lots of love and luck always

I've written my long-winded LLROK backstory on another of your journals, so I won't do so again, but I will say that this is the first and only company I've truly adopted as a lover of jewellery - my 'house brand', if you will! Counting the wonderful bits I received in my swag bag this morning, I now have almost forty LLROK pieces, all of which are beautiful, fantasically made and seriously stand out from the boring high street tat.
I agree with Hannurrr, the only advantage to this is that my bank balance might weep slightly less! Every piece has been absolutely worth the cash though, in particular the older enamel designs such as the lightening bolt lipsticks and the vampire lips (the latter of which being what drew me in!), and the more recent wooden name necklaces. I've had to stop wearing my Lucie anchor quite so much before the print disappears!
I'm really sad to see Lady Luck disappear, it feels like I've grown up with the company during my late teen-early 20's years. But, as with everybody else I'm grateful for all the happy-inducing gems LLROK has provided me with, and excited to see what the solo project brings.
Good luck Leona! All my neon love,
Really glad I managed to nab one of the last catnap necklaces and I'm in love with the russian doll necklace I got a last month; I wear it all the time now. Quite sad that LLROK will be no more, but also looking forward to what's to come in the future project ;)
Good luck and thanks for your lovely, quirky jewellery xo
FAREWELL LLROK !!
so sad to say good bye! loved visiting the site constantly and admiring your quirky and unique designs. wish i could have purchased so much more like those awesome knitted doughnuts i loved so very much. will still always be a loyal LLROK fan and follower and hope to see a new website pop up soon from the lovely creators.
One day in early 2004 i stumbled across LLROK while in class during high school... Since uncovering this incredible gem I was uncontrollably in love with everything I saw! I regularly checked the website and tried to track down stockists in Sydney, Australia (where I live) but couldn't find much, unfortunately. In January '08 I made the long trip from Sydney to London and on one cold winter's day I spent about 2 and a half hours searching for your store... and finally found it!! The girl working couldn't understand my frantic excitement and I bought a whole bunch of wonderful items... my favourite being my crafty ring in a little yellow pear!! Anyway, what I wanted to say was thank you for the wonderful jewellery you've created and I wish I could buy a farewell lucky dip bag to finish my collection but no luck with your online ordering!!!!!!! (how else could I purchase one??) Best of luck with your next project and I look forward to seeing it, even if it's via my laptop!!!! xxx
I just received my last ever LLROK parcel through the post and i love the bicyclette necklace - it's gorgeous! Thankyou for all the wonderful jewellery over the past years. I first heard about you in an Ellegirl magazine (Which i don't think is even around any more?!) when i was about 14! The one item i find myself wearing again and again is my little vampire fang necklace! Thankyou and good luck!!!! Lots of love Becky xxxxxxxx
I thought I'd write my memories of an amazing jewellery brand I've been following for years. My first LLROK purchase was a Docey Doe necklace which was quickly followed up with my purchasing most of the acrylic jewellery which I just couldn't seem to get enough of! :P However, the most treasured piece of LLROK jewellery I own is by far my lightning bolt necklace. I wear it on a near daily basis as I love it that much and I will treasure it and the rest of my LLROK collection for years to come. I'm so sad to see the end of Lady Luck Rules OK! but good luck with your future project Leona and thank you for providing us with such amazing jewellery designs over the years! X
oh no!!! i'm very sad, but very excited to see what is coming next! good luck and viva llrok!!! x x x x x
I fell in love with LLROK via miijo. Living in Perth and being too young to have a credit card I patiently waited 2 years before been able to make my first purchase which was a rainbow lucky dip and a raindrop necklace. I'm going to miss LLROK very much and I just wished I had purchased so much more while I had the chance. looking forward to my last piece which is still in the mail :)
oh my gosh! i didn't see this coming - i love the pieces (and neon pink bow/tie leggings) i have from LLROK!!!! this little online shop was quite inspirational and damn adorable! i'm glad i'll always have a piece of LLROK with me - tattoo'd on my arm (the tattoo anchor necklace)
hi leona ,

My farewell swag bag arrived yesterday and i'm wearing my souvenir necklace with pride :)

Hi! Just thought i´d give my 2 cents: i first heard about Lady Luck Rules Ok! when we both won the first ever Next Big Thing contest over at Fred Flare in the US. I thought your work was sensational and it inspired me to see another girl like me doing her own thing (only much better!). What are you going to do next? I can´t wait to know! Good luck Lady Luck!
