jewelry designs that are sophisticated and yet rooted in simplicity
Our Pritchard Hill Collection was inspired by a Summer trip to the California wine country and our discovery of a lesser-known spot in Napa, Pritchard Hill. Our collection features Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year, Marsala, where deep brownish-red garnet abounds. Check out a few of the highlights below and then hop on over to the website to see the full collection here.
On the Sonoma Coast of California sits the enchanting Bodega Bay where the sandy beaches are met with a beautiful rocky coastline. Tide pools abound, surfers congregate and whales can be spotted migrating through the area. This is the perfect place for a romantic getaway where you can relax on the beaches in the evening, listening to the waves crash, sipping the new wine you discovered during the day in Sonoma.
After months of working on it, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our brand-new website! It’s filled with new content, features that make it easier to shop and a new wish list function that makes it simple to share your favorite designs with others. And best of all, this new design is responsive (which is tech speak for it’s just as easy to view & shop on your tablet or phone as it is your laptop – wahoo!)
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!
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!
Contrast. It’s one of the keys to stand-out style. Velvet with jeans, lace with leather, gold with oxidized silver – opposites that look incredible when put together. In our latest collection, we are all about the contrast. We’re in love with the look of matte gold with shiny black and of hammered sterling with 24k gold.
New designs have been added to the website this week, so take a look around, think contrast, mix and match…and have fun!

Introducing our newest collection, the Late Summer Harvest. Lustrous labradorite with flecks of blue, green, purple and grey along with stunning sunstone in a gorgeous burnt orange sky color are featured throughout the collection. Neutral colors of smoky grey pyrite and white freshwater pearls are offset by pops of turquoise. With this mix of colors, these designs are perfect for taking you from Summer to Fall in your wardrobe. (Sidenote: We could NOT be more excited that Fall is almost here. Bring on the pumpkin flavors and cooler weather!)
