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!
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!
This Thanksgiving, we are counting our blessings with care and YOU are something for which we are very thankful. It is because of our amazing customers that I am able to do what I love doing – designing jewelry that makes women feel (and look!) fabulous.
As a thank you to you, we’re offering a fun Black Friday deal on our website. So, skip those insane lines and avoid the crowds today. Stay home with your friends and family and indulge in leftovers and a little more pie. Save while shopping in your pajamas with a warm cup of coffee in hand and let us ship your item free of charge directly to you (or a gift recipient!)
Check out our Facebook page or our Instagram feed for all of the details (and the coupon code.) And sign up for our email list (in the box on the right – here on the blog!) so that next time, you’re the very first to know.
PS. (Don’t forget that we are offering free USPS Priority Mail shipping on ALL orders through December 31, 2014!)

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. Tres Chic always brings adorable clothes, clutches and pashminas at amazing prices. Our friends at Pomp and Circumstance Boutique here in Houston are coming this year as well with their amazingly-priced clothes and accessories. (Hopefully they’ll bring more of those adorable Texas “Home” t-shirts for toddlers that we bought at the St. Martin’s Joy of Giving Market!) MD Anderson Childrens Art Project is coming this year as well. We always love buying from them – adorable things that benefit brave children – what could be better? Our buddies at Smathers and Branson are coming this year, too! We absolutely love these guys. They make gorgeous needlepoint items for guys and gals. They have cute, preppy belts that feature needlepoint designs including college logos, fish, flags and even monograms. They make wonderful gift items. (My hubs LOVES the one I got him, as do my nephew and brother !) They also have adorable keychains, wallets, baseball caps and even flasks. Its hard to find cool guy gifts, but these guys always bring them, so definitely stop by this booth. There are also loads of yummy food items at the show, so don’t miss those spots to shop, either!
On Tuesday, March 11th, there is a preview party from 5pm to 8.30pm that is $10 per ticket. The free shopping days are Wednesday, March 12th from 9am to 5pm and on Thursday, March 13th from 9am to 3pm.

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!
One of our new pieces – a large crescent moon pave set with diamonds on a multi-strand
oxidized sterling silver chain that can be worn long or short. Hip, elegant and gorgeous!
