Every year I dread and look forward to the Las Vegas Jewelry Show. I dread it because, even though Vegas is a fabulous place, it’s just not my cup of tea. I don’t gamble or drink much but do enjoy the shows. I did put $3 in a slot machine and won $ 0.04.

As I walked into QVC ten years ago, I was hoping to last at least ten days... that would give me enough time to get all the Show Hosts autographs, tee hee hee (seriously, though, that's true). I remember standing at the front doors that read, "Welcome to QVC".

One thing the Italians love is their heritage. Part of that heritage is the lira. The lira was the official currency in Italy until 2002, and the Italians were NOT happy when they had to go to the Euro! Ever since the lira has been out of circulation, it has become more and more difficult to find.... Continue Reading

One of the big trends coming out of Italy is still the trend of the big bold bracelet look. Sometimes it's called a radiant wrist, sometimes it's called a statement piece, or big and bold, but anyway you state it, it's about making your wrist the focal point of your jewelry. One of the beautiful tre... Continue Reading

I love jewelry that has a strong point of view. It is one of the reasons that I like to look at some men's pieces of jewelry.

Looking forward to some Summer fun? I know that I am! Even though Summer may not literally mean the same freedom from schedules, alarm clocks, dress codes, and curfews that it did when we were kids, there is still something freeing about this season! The freedom to dress a little more casually, or maybe even a little more girly. The encouragement to show a little more skin, the necessity of a pedicure much more frequently, and the justification to buy that adorable SPF 50 floppy hat in the resort gift shop!
Summer for many of us brings back memories of family gathering... Continue Reading
