This is the background in which I work, always seeking the pure and the natural, the genius simplicity of beautiful engineering, whether in nature or in mans ... Continue Reading

I hope everyone is enjoying the summer. Very hot weather doesn't really agree with me. You would think growing up in Louisiana, I would be used to the heat and humidity but not any more!Thank you for the comments and questions. It has taken me a while to research these important issues. The models and show hosts have a collection of jewelry that they can pull from to wear on air during non-jewelry shows. The jewelry is not always from QVC but sometimes comes from many different sources. The stylists buy from top stores to accent new apparel styles that will be coming up on air. The neck...

Dear Readers,You may wonder why I chose to put a photo of my shop here, but I wanted to convey the excitement that is swirling around the Robert Lee Morris brand these days, and my retail store windows (the night we launched the Andy Warhol collection) just show the vibrancy and energy that our company is feeling. I know I have a series of shows coming up June 20, and 21, (5 hours) and wanted to alert you to a few of the hot trends that I will be promoting. Long necklaces are really important now, layering several of them, or just wearing singles, gives a person a taller more willowy appearanc... Continue Reading

A Little History on Gold

In Jewelry Talk

Gold has always held magical properties for me. As a child, one of my fondest memories was going to Knott's Berry Farm in California and “panning for gold”. I remember what seemed like a gushing river of water coming out of the mountain. We were given a miners pan and were instructed to put it in the moving water, pickup some of the gravel that was on the bottom and moving through the water and shake the pan so that the heaviest rocks fell to the bottom. What was left in the pan was a miracle; it was actually real gold dust. Reflecting back after 45 years or so, I am sure it was well orch... Continue Reading

New York City

Last Reply by qvcrocks1 1199833456 | in Jewelry Talk

Dear Everyone,Look at this amazing photo I took on my way to work this morning! The freeze hit so hard and suddenly in New York City, that all the leaves fell off all the trees all at once, making strange mountains of leaves all over the city. Some of the leaves were still bright green and it almost looked like some colossal force shook all the trees and forced a bizarre and complete shedding overnight!!But when I passed my favorite Ginko tree, it looked like thousands of my Sunglow Ginko pendants all piled up in thicklayers of shimmering gold. I have never seen such a rich natural sight. It r... Continue Reading

QVC's 21st birthday

Last Reply by Margo Channing 1197144744 | in Jewelry Talk

Where were you on your 21st birthday? It is really a big deal. In many states we are considered legal with all the responsibilities that go along with that. Growing up in Louisiana, I think it was the age of 18 (on Bourbon Street, even earlier) but the big 21 was still important.In 1974, when I turned 21, I was attending Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. I was majoring in Finance and trying to figure out what to do when I grow up. By that age you have hopefully gone through the growing pains and start to have a clear vision of where you are headed. I was working in Neiman ... Continue Reading

Just another day at the Q

Last Reply by shebby 1242952666 | in Jewelry Talk

What is a typical day at QVC? There is no such thing. Every day brings new, exciting projects to work on, products to follow-up on, trips to plan, etc. No two days are alike. I thought I would share a couple of day's activities from this past week. I am an early riser so am usually in the office between 6:30 and 7:00 AM. Over night, emails from around the world have come in that need immediate actions. It is still early enough in Italy, Turkey, India, Hong Kong, or Bangkok, that they will receive my reply before they leave for the day. These included: new sketches for Affinity Diamonds...

The Beauty of Pearls

Last Reply by CL0916 1201821435 | in Jewelry Talk

Pearls are always classic and timely but lately have become one of the hottest trends in fashion. White and black pearls are now a fashion necessity. Ladies from the top politicians to the most ultra chic divas are wearing their pearls not only for evening wear but also during the day. Our style guru, Eurydice, told me that “pearls are the perfect accompaniment to some of today's top trends from feminine and romantic styling to tailored classics”.Many cultures believe that pearls were formed by drops of heavenly moisture falling into the sea and were often said to be divine tears. In one ... Continue Reading
