There is nothing more special than one-of-a-kind

One of my passions is creating one-of-a-kind pieces for people. Taking a person's favorite gemstone and creating something just for them... taking a picture of a person's outfit and creating them a stunning piece that is going to juje that outfit to the next level for than certain special occasion... even taking something that I've already made and altering it to fit their body and personality to perfection.

This is a piece that I made for my beautiful friend Katie! I had seen this gorgeous yellow silk top on her- so I used solid copper (she's allergic to base metals)- and used a dazzling array of gold toned pearls, amber, carnelian, olive Jade- a perfect mix of colors and textures... I made it long enough that she could wear it long with other chains, or double it up for a shorter look.

Don't be shy- email me, and be the next to get a piece made just for you (or someone you love).

So I haven't had the guts to tell Todd that I am having a love affair... the love I feel is astoundingly deep, and cuts to the core of me. I wholeheartedly LOVE pearls. In my professional fashionism opinion- They are classic, timeless, bound to be a family heirloom (yes, they still exist).... but when paired with other gemstones, chunky chains, crystal- they are brought to a whole other level. And don't even get me started on different shaped & colored pearls.

Every woman should own:
  1. A set of classic white or cream colored 6mm-8mm pearls (Picture Charlotte a le SATC).
  2. A funkified pearl bracelet- either bauble style, mixed with crystal, and definitely bold.
  3. Some form of a pearl drop earrings (preferably in the same style/type as your funkified bracelet)- that is going to compliment your decolletage.
I love to mix them with swarovski crystal and sterling silver chain- and think that this mix is fashionable, yet still bound to be classic and last a lifetime.

So start your love affair- I assure you that if it isn't already, over time it will be as deep as mine is!
