I was referred to Ai Kandy Jewelry by a friend and when I visited her Site I couldn’t help, but be drawn to the meaning behind Ai Kandy Jewelry and the designs. Kandace’s creations are absolutely adorable, but what I loved even more about them is what each piece means. Ai Kandy represents everything in life that I believe in, which is living a positive lifestyle. Another interesting thing I love about Kandace is how she has inspirational and beautiful quotes on her Site, you’ll always feel more positive after leaving AiKandyjewelry.com. Here at LLL we want to make sure our readers are continuously inspired by us, what we post, and who we feature. Everyone has a story. Read more to learn more about Ai Kandy and the woman behind it.
