Barb Grob brings luxe to Key West
“I have enough jewelry,” said no one ever. Lucky for the lady in your life who craves all things opulent and bold, there’s Key West Local Luxe jewelry boutique. Founded by local artist and lover of all things shiny, Barb Grob, Key West Local Luxe is a culmination of her lifelong love affair with rocks and sculptures.
“I was always a sculptor,” Grob says. “As a kid, I used to collect leaves and rocks and things and glue them to driftwood, shellac them with Aquanet hairspray, and sell them to the neighbors. I’ve been a ‘rock nerd’ my whole life and started making jewelry at about 18 years old.”
Originally from Jefferson City, Mo., Grob has called Key West her home for more than two decades. You’ll find the tall brunette dripping in jewels from her ears to her hands and everything in between on any given day in Key West. Whether she’s stringing up beads in her studio or biking around the island, you’re guaranteed to find this bauble babe rocking some killer pieces......
