As one of the featured designers at the recent Culture Map Holiday Pop Up Shop on Sunday at Silver Street Studios, I was asked to do an Instagram Takeover of their account for a day. It was my first takeover and it was so much fun! In case you missed the posts, I wanted to share them here – with links to make it easier on you to find just what you’re looking for!
It really is a bit of a dream come true. I’ve long since wanted to open a studio space where I can work in a lovely and well-designed space and where I can meet customers for personalized shopping appointments (and, of course, host shopping events!) I have been designing jewelry for nearly 15 years now (yikes!) and I’ve always done most of my work out of my home. With three littles, however, the game has changed quite a bit and this space allows me a place to think and create in relative quiet and a place to meet customers when it is most convenient for them (even if that is when my littles are napping!) Click below for some lovely photos of our new space and the details on where I got everything!
So. Much. Fun. As you know, we were invited to participate in Culture Map’s very first Holiday Pop-Up Shopping Event on December 7th. Culture Map is known for their flawless taste and elegant events and this one combined both. We were over the moon when they called us up and let us know that we had been hand-selected out of all of the Houston-area designers – what an honor! We worked hard to put together the best curated collection for your holiday shopping needs and we had so much fun meeting all of you who attended. It was an incredibly successful event and we are so grateful for the support of our loyal customers like you! We were too busy writing up tickets to take very many photos, but here are a few we did take. . .
Many of you know that we recently opened up a design studio in Rice Village in Houston, Texas. This is such an exciting step for us. It is so nice to have a design-focused space in which to meet customers, work on the business and design new sparkles! It’s a beautiful space and we’ve gotten such amazing feedback about it from our customers. Yay that you love it as much as we do!
In order to help you find it, we whipped up this lovely little graphic that shows just where we are. So, stop by and join us for a glass of wine and some shopping. We would love to meet you. See you at the studio!
We are SO excited to have been invited to be a featured designer at the first-ever Culture Map Holiday Pop Up Shop! Culture has included 25 invite-only designers to show their goodies at the event and help make your holiday shopping season effortless and fun. With music, festive food, cocktails, a man cave to entertain your guy while you shop, free gift wrap and tons of great vendors to shop, your gift-giving tasks just got WAY more fun! (I mean, who doesn’t like shopping with a free cocktail in hand – way more fun!)

Save the date to join us at the Spring Thing Market at Chapelwood United Methodist Church next week. We absolutely LOVE doing this show. We’ve done this one for about eight years or more now and we love it every single year. It is so fun to connect with friends and long-time customers and we love the other vendors, too! Everyone is so sweet and brings such lovely things to sell. (The shopping is one of our favorite parts of markets!)
Brookwood Community always comes with their amazing plants and garden pieces. They have super deals on plants and arrangements (always love a bargain) that are so beautiful AND the sales benefit this amazing community that provides an educational environment that creates meaningful jobs, builds a sense of belonging and demands dignity and respect for adults with disabilities.

We’re having a special Houston trunk show – just for the guys! Come shop in peace with a cocktail in your hand. Get ideas on what your sweetheart might like and leave with it gift-wrapped and ready to give. What could be easier and more fun than that? We’ll have gorgeous handbags and snakeskin cuffs from Presmer and lots of sparkly options from Andrea Montgomery Designs…including deep discounts on diamond pieces and other sale items. You won’t want to miss this one!

We had so much fun at Langford Market’s West Ave flagship location today! They girls who work in there are absolutely adorable and are so, so sweet and helpful. You should definitely stop in and check the place out. The decor and ambiance in the store offer a lovely aesthetic in which to shop and the clothes are really well-priced and offer on-trend colors and styles. Their jewelry isn’t at all my style, but their clothes are really cute! And maybe that’s why they asked me to come in and do a trunk show – to offer a slightly more dainty option. The customers were all very kind and excited to try on a more dainty look and find some things to layer with items they already had. A win-win! (more…)
