Liseanne Frankfurt grew up making jewelry out of anything and everything imaginable. A native Californian, Liseanne began selling her work during her sophomore year, while studying Art History at UCLA. A successful business quickly followed, as did a move to NYC. This initial collection was sold at Barneys New York and Japan, Fred Segal, and numerous other boutiques across the country.
A return to Los Angeles coincided with a sabbatical from jewelry making, and a foray into the world of interior design. This break provided the space and inspiration for Liseanne to return to her true love, and to the formation of LFrank. The retail store opened on Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice in 2007, and moved in early 2015 to occupy part of the iconic former Obsolete space on Main Street, also in Venice, CA.
Liseanne has traveled extensively throughout the world, and has lived in both NYC and Los Angeles. She continues to create and expand LFrank, bringing a modern sensibility to a century’s old tradition. Her studies in Gemology at GIA have further strengthened her knowledge and commitment to making exquisite objects of personal adornment. The recent creation of the LFrank Lingerie collection represents an expansion into the realm of personal luxury as not only adornment, but as a lifestyle distinction.
