One of the fabulous things about living in San Francisco (and there are many!) is that we are so close to the wine country. Sonoma is a quick 45-minute drive and Napa is just an hour away, making it really easy to drive up for the day. The landscape is beautiful, the shops adorable and the weather is usually warm and sunny, which is a nice break from the city fog in the Summer! There are more wineries than you can possible visit and more great food than is reasonable for anyone to eat and when you visit the wine country, even for a day, you feel like you’re on vacation – a million miles away from the city. It makes for a wonderful day trip or weekend getaway if you life in SF and a fabulous vacation destination if you don’t! (more…)
My dear friend, Paul Hotze, has always been a creative genius. He is not only one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he’s also one of the funniest. His creativity literally knows no bounds – from his time at Second City in Chicago to the video he made announcing his departure for a solo motorcycle trip that he took from Houston down to South America. (Oh yes, he really did it. And the resulting stories were priceless.) (more…)
Without a doubt, when people come to visit me here in San Francisco, one of the very first places that I take them is to the Ferry Building. Even when we don’t have friends visiting, the farmers’ market there is one of our very favorite weekend activities. If you’re coming to SF, I highly recommend you carve out a few hours to visit it – it is well worth it! (more…)
If you haven’t been to Absinthe in San Francisco, you owe it a visit. It is delicious! I had some friends in town this past weekend and it was our Sunday night dinner spot. It is one of our favorites and did not disappoint this weekend. Absinthe is a darling French brassiere in Hayes Valley, where the ambiance is fabulous and the food delicious! (more…)

Each year for the past nine years, I have designed a piece that will be sold to raise money for the fight against breast cancer. For the past several years, proceeds from the designs have benefitted the Stehlin Foundation for Cancer Research, which is an incredible organization located in Houston that is making amazing strides in the battle against cancer.

Andrea Montgomery LOVES designing custom orders for brides – and this one was extra fun!
When effortlessly chic Sarah Jane approached me about doing her bridal jewelry, I knew that I was in for a treat. This bride has such a fabulous sense of style that is all her own and it really made doing her wedding jewelry so much fun! Her wedding was in gorgeous Aspen in the Fall and she wanted to do something different – so she incorporated purple into all of her wedding jewelry. I absolutely LOVED it! (more…)
I just returned from a buying trip in NYC for the jewelry line. All I can say is, wow! There are so many fabulous new trends out there. My new fav? Rose gold. You heard me, girls.
