jewelry designs that are sophisticated and yet rooted in simplicity
A few months ago, fabulous wardrobe stylist in the NYC area named Krissi Farrimond contacted me about using some of my bridal designs for a wedding photo shoot. Those designs were featured this month on Trendy Bride – how fun is that!? Below are some of the photos, which were taken by the talented Sheradee Hurst Photography, that feature my designs. To see the complete NYC Rooftop styled shoot (which you do NOT want to miss…stunning!) check out the full feature here.
We are launching our latest collection, which was also inspired by a Summer trip to the California Wine Country. For our stay in Napa Valley, we were at the Carneros Inn, which is a serene property with accommodations that are both luxurious and comfortable at the same time. (Just writing about it has me aching to go back!) The muted orange tones and soft grey colors mixed together with stark white was the inspiration for this collection. Feel a bit of the relaxed sophistication of Napa each time you wear a piece. . . See some of our fav items below and then view the collection on our website here.
We are headed to Birmingham tomorrow for a trunk show and couldn’t be more excited to see this fabulous Southern town for the first time. (I’m picturing scenes from Sweet Home Alabama and Heart of Dixie and I super home I’m right!)
If you’re in Alabama or have friends there, we would love to see you there. The invitation is below! Email us here for the address and directions. We’ll be at a dear friend’s home in Mountain Brook from 5 to 8pm on Wednesday evening and 9am to 3pm on Thursday. Join us for a cocktail and some sparkly shopping!
If you’re in the Tyler, Texas area, please join us for a trunk show next week to preview our new Fall collections and some fun new limited edition items! Email us here for the address and more details.
One of the best things about living in our neighborhood is the sense of community here. It is (literally) a small town in the middle of a big city and it has such a unique feel to it. For our family, it reminds us of our wonderful time in San Francisco, a city amazingly good at fostering a sense of community within the various neighborhoods.
One thing that reinforces this neighborhood feel is when our local businesses reach out get involved. One fabulous example of this is Tiny’s No. 5. Every Halloween, Tiny’s hands out their famous chocolate chip cookies (seriously the best I’ve ever had!) to the neighborhood trick or treaters. They are delish and were the best treats we got last night!
It’s so neat to see how the community here gathers together on Halloween. It is reminiscent of the small town America of days gone by. Of course the “fresh out of the oven” chocolate chip cookies don’t hurt either!
Our Houston studio (pictured above) is a warm, cozy space with fun music, cocktails, coffee and great conversation (and, of course, with lots of sparkles for shopping!) And we are all dolled up for Fall and ready to welcome you. (Photo proof below!)
Check out our holiday shopping hours here – good until Christmas. (Don’t worry, you can still shop by appointment – just email us here to let us know what works well for you.) And come by to see us soon. We’d love to catch up with you!
