Prom. A right of passage. A chapter ending and a new one on the horizon. Prom night. Finding the gown and putting the whole look together can be magical. You get to feel like a princess, hopefully have a great date that you like, capture the photos for family and friends, and celebrate the beginning…Read More
Charmed. Estate Jewelry.
Estate jewelry comes with a history. It’s often a mystery, although sometimes the former owner shares things with the seller who can pass it along to the new owner. Not so for this old world charm, but I imagine it to have been on a magnificent bracelet with many others collected over the years. The…Read More
Raw Sapphires. Jewel Candy.
I was drawn to this necklace in the case at Magpie Jewelry. I had no idea what the stones were. I just found it to have unique beauty with a combination of substance and refinement. I learned it was handmade by a Canadian jewelry artisan (unfortunately I can’t remember her name) with 14k gold and raw…Read More
Love. My Name Necklace.
Inspired by Carrie Bradshaw. Yes I was. I was familiar with name necklaces from high school. They were very popular at the time. I always coveted one, as I do love things with a personal touch. Watching Sex in the City re-ignited my obsession with the name necklace. My online search began and I landed…Read More

I was immediately taken with the meaning, caring and thoughtfulness put into each piece, and decided I had to have one. The You & Me necklaces caught my eye. They’re…Read More

Each bracelet is made up of one paw bead, one heart bead and 22 white beads made from natural agate stone. Each of the 22 beads represents…Read More
Memory Markers. Tiffany love.
It’s strange how unrelated things can come together. Like Tiffany jewelry and running. An unlikely connection for sure, but in this case it worked out just right. On one of my ‘big’ birthday years I decided I’d complete my first, and probably my only, marathon. I signed up and my daughter and I took our first…Read More

Horse Love. Equestrian Style.
After begging my parents for what seemed like forever, they finally allowed me to start riding lessons when I was ten. I still ride, not in competition anymore, just for pure pleasure. My love of horses has never waned and crosses over to my street style. I picked up the beautiful black saddlebag at Kenneth Cole…Read More
Spoon Ring. Recycled Radiance.
Once upon a time this spoon was part of someone’s silverware set. Now it’s a great piece of vintage jewelry. The ring is 100% made with the end of a sterling silver spoon. It has been cut and shaped to fit my finger perfectly. It’s got weight, detail and smoothness. While touring visitors around our…Read More
