Hi everyone. We made it through January. After the holidays, winter can feel never-ending but so far, 2015 is off to a great start. Even though the holiday season is over, there are lots fun things to brighten up this time of year.    Will you be watching the big game tomorrow? Whether you watch for the football, the commercials or the half-time show, the Super Bowl is always an enjoyable event. This year, I'll be at QVC hosting some exciting shows.  Every year, Ron watches from the green room and flips between the Super Bowl and watching me on QVC. Ron is the best. He al...

Hi Everyone, I hope your New Year is off to a happy start with the promise of many good things to come. I’m particularly delighted to begin 2015 with exciting plans for the Judith Ripka brand.  For me, the new year has brought a fresh perspective and more inspiration than ever.  Every day I think about my designs.  This is my passion and my life’s work – something I’ll never stop doing. Sometimes, I wake up dreaming about an idea and scribble down notes!  Then, in the morning, Ron helps me decipher my notes so I can sketch and b... Continue Reading

Hi friends. Happy New Year! 2015 is finally here. I hope that everyone enjoyed spending the holidays with their families and friends. The New Year is a great time for new beginnings. This year, my New Year’s Resolution is to eat less carbs and eat more protein. What are your New Year’s Resolutions? I would love to know all about them—let me know on my Facebook page. The holiday season brings me so much inspiration for my sketches. Besides attending holiday parties, I’ve been sketching like crazy the past few weeks on everything from napkins to wrapping paper. We have... Continue Reading

Favorite Time of Year

Started by Judith Ripka in Judith Ripka 1419355895.36

Hello all. I hope that everyone is bundled up and enjoying the holidays with their families. So far, I am having a great holiday season with my family and friends. I recently attended a holiday party on a boat called The Atlantica. We cruised around the Hudson River and enjoyed stunning views of the New York City skyline. No matter how many times I see it, I am still thrilled by that view. I really love to bake during this time of year. One of my favorite recipes to make is biscotti. Whether you’re enjoying biscotti with tea, coffee or a holiday punch, it’s the perfect season... Continue Reading

It Doesn’t take a Village to Create Each Piece – it Takes a Town!

Hi everyone. Beth and the team just returned from visiting our factories in Bangkok, Thailand. Whenever you travel, it’s always good to immerse yourself in the culture. Beth and the team experienced Thai culture by visiting this restaurant and saw these Thai dancers in their elegant, traditional outfits while having dinner.   During Beth’s trip, she worked with our master carvers and was able to get a hands-on look at how our TSV tennis bracelet is made.   In the photos, you’ll see how our jewelry is first carved in wax, a process done completely by hand....

Judith Ripka December TSV

Last Reply by prophet 1418348099.247 | Started by Judith Ripka in Jewelry Talk, Judith Ripka, TSV Talk

  Hi friends. I hope that everyone had a delightful Thanksgiving. This year, I made a fabulous sweet potato pie with marshmallows. For me, November was a busy month. Of course, Thanksgiving was great but I also had a wonderful time at our small holiday get-together. It was such a treat to get to see how you Ripkanize your pieces. My only complaint is that I wish I could have spent the holidays with all of you.   A very special surprise guest joined us – my dear friend and QVC host, Lisa Robertson. She joined in on the festivities and wore a gorgeous pair of my heart earrings... Continue Reading

Happy November

Last Reply by booey 1415716270.113 | Started by Judith Ripka in Jewelry Talk, Judith Ripka

Hello friends and Happy November. I love November because it is the real start of the holiday season. The holidays are always busy for everyone, but they really are a magical time of year. My favorite part of the holidays is spending time with my family, my closest friends, and all of the people that are important to me.    In the rush of our busy, day-to-day lives, it’s easy to forget about slowing down and being present in the moment. Thankfully, the upcoming season is the perfect opportunity for this. I’m really looking forward to seeing all of my grandchildren. Th... Continue Reading

The Formal, The Casual and Everything in Between

Hi everyone. I am really happy to be back with you for October’s shows and to introduce you to a lovely new item. As you know, I design jewelry that should be worn all the time. As I always say, my pieces can go from blue jeans to black tie! Versatility is so important and I believe that my designs are for everything from the soccer game to the gala. My calendar is filled with special events that mean so much to me. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and every year, I attend the Breast Cancer Research Fund luncheon. My dear friend, the late Evelyn Lauder, founded the BCR... Continue Reading

Time for Change

Last Reply by HOLLYBTS 1413620305.693 | Started by Judith Ripka in Jewelry Talk, Judith Ripka, Hosts & Personalities

Hello everyone. I cannot believe that the fall equinox is less than two weeks away. This time of year always has me thinking about change and I especially love seeing these seasonal changes in nature.    One of my favorite things to see during these months is the northern lights. These bright curtains of color light up the sky with beautiful hues of pink, green, violet, and blue.  When you look at my fall collection, you will see how this dynamic time of year influenced my designs. My newest Interchangeable Sterling Cuff is a perfect example. The easy-on, easy-off piece has a... Continue Reading

Inspiration from the Natural World

Last Reply by stephM 1409651762.997 | Started by Judith Ripka in Jewelry Talk, Judith Ripka, Hosts & Personalities

Dear friends,  The end of summer is bittersweet. I love the longer days, pleasant temperatures and spending time outside but I am also looking forward to everything that autumn has to offer. Before the summer is over, I am spending as much time outside as I can. One of my greatest sources of inspiration for my jewelry is the beauty of nature. From scenic sunsets to blue skies, I always feel very inspired when I have the chance to witness these natural events. Recently, Ron and I went to a dinner party at our friends’ home and I was struck by the stunning sky and the remarkable se... Continue Reading
