As we reach the official start of summer, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with you on QVC! I’m reviewing the product line-up today, which always gets me pumped up!!! I’ve been busy designing for February 2015, so it is exciting to reconnect with my June designs. I had forgotten how fun, fresh, and colorful these pieces are!
It wouldn’t be summer without Sleeping Beauty turquoise, and there are some very special new pieces coming up. And for all of those summer special occasions, there’s a collection with a fresh take on pearls.&n... Continue Reading

One thing the Italians love is their heritage. Part of that heritage is the lira.

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

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
