We had Easter for Christmas!!

Last Reply by Fla GM 1264881334 | in Jewelry Talk

What a wonderful time we had over the holidays with our precious little granddaughter Easter! We took her for a stroll around Santa Fe where it was just magical, the snow was falling, the luminarias were glowing and happy people were cuddling up around the crackling pinon fires. Isn't it wonderful how a complete stranger stops to admire a blessed little baby? A warm smile instantly appears on their face and before you know it, you've made a new friend. We had our very own little Easter parade around the plaza! As you can see in Easter's picture with Santa, all this activity kind of wore ... Continue Reading

2009 - Year End

Last Reply by teddybeargem 1262637088 | in Jewelry Talk

I hope everyone is staying warm and dry. This weekend was quite an adventure in the Northeast. I was supposed to meet my family in New York City on Friday for a day of Christmas shopping, sightseeing, and to top it off, I had gotten 4th row center tickets to “A Little Night Music” on Broadway. Richmond ended up getting 18 or so inches of snow and there was not guarantee that the trains would be running. I wasn't even sure if I could get back to the office if I cancelled NYC all together and went to Richmond instead.I tried to give the Broadway tickets away at the office but no one wanted t...

Celebrate with Citrine!

In Jewelry Talk

You don't have to be a November baby to be a rock star in your golden citrine! This glowing gem has become the popular choice for the November birthdays. Originally the birthstone was golden topaz, but rarity and price made that one tough to collect so we now go for citrine. Known as the "merchant stone" because it symbolizes prosperity and wealth, people believed citrine could ban negativity and increase self esteem. This precious form of quartz is often mined where amethyst, its sister stone, is found. Today citrine is the color of November. When we think of golden leaves falling from ... Continue Reading

It's back to school, back to work, and back to reality! So, I thought it would be fun to escape to the world of gems, because we are working on some amazing things as we head into fall. I read all of your comments and so do our buyers and we love hearing about the gems you love. I think you will adore the styles coming up this fall, the looks are bold and dramatic and the colors are intense. If you are looking for great gemstones to compliment your fall fashions you can't go wrong with amethyst for purple passion, london blue topaz and apatite for rich teal, and smoky quartz , citri...

I can hardly believe that we are already half way through August. I am gearing up for my August 29 show and excited to share my new designs with you. Since my last entry, I received a few emails asking me about how I started my business and knew that I wanted to be a jewelry designer. So, I thought I would use this opportunity to share a little of my story with you.I was born and raised in New York and enjoyed a wonderful childhood. My earliest memories are of playing in my mother's jewelry box and accessorizing my clothing, tying a heart charm to my belt, hanging a pin off a chain draped... Continue Reading

I absolutely adore the 2 tone metal combination and especially love the unique qualities of 18K gold. I use an exceptional alloy of 18K gold. Why you ask? My alloy has a wonderful brilliance that brightens your face and... Continue Reading

Lovely London Blue

Last Reply by nanette 1250953143 | in Jewelry Talk

If I had to pick one must have gemstone for fall that truly spoke to the hottest fashion color, it would be London blue topaz. Every designer is showing some version of teal, and the gem that shows it off the best is the deepest shad of blue topaz. It is a great gem to wear with a hardness of 8 on the Mohs scale, and takes a stunning polish. Plus, it has a high refractive index so the sparkle out shines many other gems. Mankind has honored topaz for thousands of years, and the cool blue tone was thought to have magical properties that could put out fires! The word topaz comes from a Sanski... Continue Reading
