For Sherlock fans, Irene Adler is no stranger. But for those of you who may not have come across this literary muse of mine, let me introduce you to her.

“At a time when ladies were supposed to be ladies, Adler had the face of the most beautiful of women, and the mind of the most resolute of men” – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

You guys know by now how much I love discovering what talent is around in Las Vegas, especially when that talent has a vibe that is perfect for a collaboration on a photoshoot project!

Meet Flor de Liz Guior, recent fashion school graduate and the mastermind who created  the wardrobe for the fall 2018 photoshoot *Collection launching 9.15.18.
In anticipation of the launch party, I wanted to share a bit on her story with you.

Community and Collaboration in Business

This picture makes me happy. Why? Because it exemplifies so much of what goes into my business, but its not about my jewelry. At first glance it may seem to be that way, but if you look closer you will see. 80% of the jewelry on the table is my summer collection, statement necklaces and bangles galore. But it is the other 20% I want you to pay attention to. These larger,

The Next Generation

The above graphic contains advice sent to me from a wise-beyond-their-years 5th-grade class. I was recently lucky enough to connect with them through my sister and heard they were studying the topic of Beauty. When I was in 5th grade, it was the age of the supermodel (yes, I am that old, lol). Not having a chance of looking like Cindy Crawford or Claudia Schiffer in my lifetime, I really didn’t understand that I still could be beautiful.

Where has 2018 gone?

Where has 2018 gone?

This year has been a whirlwind. One of the things I learned in retail is the natural peaks and valleys of sales allows for lots of downtime after Holiday. For a few years now, I have been allowing those natural patterns to drive my workflow. But what do you do when there is no natural break? The lesson I am learning is that you have to make one. Here we are, halfway through May and I am realizing I don’t know how to say no to things.

A Guide to Gifting Crystals

A Guide to Gifting Crystals

At this time of year, we are all looking for the perfect gift for those we love. In my mind, often there is no better option than to gift a well thought out crystal. For centuries, crystals have held a special place in many cultures, and even those who don’t believe in the concept of healing crystals will appreciate them for their unique beauty and still benefit from their energies.

There are many different ways to gift crystals,

Holiday 2017

Holiday 2017

We’ve all had it, that moment of fear walking into a place we feel we don’t fit in. That moment of doubt, of worry that you aren’t fashionable enough, witty enough, smart enough… or just plain enough, enough. Holiday 2017 is all about being confident in your skin, knowing that you are enough. Please check out my last blog post detailing the inspiration behind the collection, I won’t repeat all the details here. To summarize,

Talking about my Holiday collection with my friends and family this year has been so exciting, I am excited to share it with all of you. The last collection of each year is always fun and over the top, what better time to create big and sparkly showpieces than Holiday? This year is no exception. But, instead of introducing you to the line through photos of the jewelry (which are coming, don’t worry, Jamie Y Photography did an amazing job on Sunday’s shoot),

Client Convo… Shantel Rose

I am thrilled to bring you a new feature on the blog, Client Convos. Ask anyone what my favorite part of my job is and they will tell you it is the custom designs I create for my loyal clients. The process of designing a unique piece with a specific individual in mind is so therapeutic and strengthens my skills as an artist. I have shared a few of those projects on the blog before,

A Weekend of Synchronicity…

A Weekend of Synchronicity…

Here it is Tuesday morning and I am still reeling from the crazy wonderful things that came together this past weekend. What started as an amazing opportunity to finally work with a photographer who I met online a year ago through the rising tide society, quickly turned into a productive, inspirational, healing, exciting and uniting weekend. Think that is an exaggeration? I promise you it is not.

I want to include more photos from our brand shoot in the Anza Borrego Desert,
