Adorned with Story

June 2, 2014


While I have a penchant for jewelry, there is very little I wear consistently in my every day dealings. I haven’t added to that in quite some time, but I am going to shortly. I promised myself I wouldn’t add to my collection on a whim. Each piece I buy from here forward must not […]

It’s taken awhile, but the stud earring has started to come into its own. Quite frankly, it’s about time. There are still plenty of the demure and dainty options around, but I prefer this new breed of stud full of edge and roughness – a glamour disguised in wicked clothing. There are entirely too many […]

Get the Look: First Knuckle Rings

July 15, 2013


The other day, after a summer white manicure appointment, I posted the picture above and several folks asked about my delicate, gold rings. ¬†They are “first knuckle rings” and are quite the little trend.

Kiss Me: All About Lips

August 29, 2012

Comments Off on Kiss Me: All About Lips

I can’t help it. Whenever I see lips I immediately think of The Rolling Stones and all their rocker vibe. And I dig it. But I also dig a more feminine interpretation of a good lip print – a little flirty, a little kicky, a little fun. I love a classic silhouette, but mixing it […]

You know how perfume should be placed at your pulse points for maximum alluring effect? I feel the same way about jewelry. Most especially bracelets – hanging ever so elegantly at the curve of your wrist while you use your hands to tell a story. And there’s something about a bangle – the solid, unyielding […]

A Taste of Turquoise

February 22, 2012


turquoise spring 2012

Otherwise known as,”Winter 2012 we are SO done with you.” If it’s 74 degrees here, 60 degrees in New York and Vermont has hardly any snow? I’m calling it SPRING. Even in the middle of February.

Pop of Color: Necklace Edition
