My Marie Antoinette earrings didn’t win an American Gem Trade Association Spectrum award, but I got positive feedback, so I feel proud anyway. Thanks to Cheryl Kremkow for including my design in her post about earring trends at the awards.

I already know which design I’m going to enter in next year’s awards. I haven’t even made it yet but I know it will blow everyone’s mind!

High Polish, another jewelry blog, got into the Halloween spirit with my silver Juana skull necklace.


I have so many variations on my Juana skull design — different necklaces, lockets, rings and cufflinks. But I am still excited to do another one. After creating the chunky Juana skull ring in sterling silver for gorgeous designer/blogger Stacy Lomman, I feel the need to do the style in 18K yellow gold.

$800. Click to order.

Yellow gold — 18K yellow gold, specifically — is my favorite metal to work with, so no design feels “done” until I have the yellow gold version.

Thanks for the blog love, Cheryl and High Polish!

In other jewelry news, this is the last day to get 50% off my cute bat necklaces in my Halloween sale. These pieces are good gifts for Batman fans, because they have rather human-like faces. They’ll go back to full price tomorrow.


In non-jewelry news, gorgeous blogger Susan of Une femme d’un certain age paid tribute to FitzRoy the cat in pumpkin form.

I keep looking at the picture and LOLing. Pumpkin cat looks seriously disgruntled, just like the real thing. Susan, your work is gourd-juss!

Happy Halloween, everyone! And keep sending good vibes to the people trying to recover from Hurricane Sandy.

    Your beautiful earrings are standout pieces, they should have won!! Love the FitzRoy pumpkin,spot on!

  3. Boo hiss, they have no taste, you been robbed and should’ve won! Love the kitty pumpkin! Can you believe me — the Halloween Queen — doesn’t have a pumpkin? Some kids came right up to our front door while we were out (you have to climb two small staircases to get there) last year & stole it then smashed it down the street! So now I’m paranoid. I put so much work into that baby! What brats! At least the sun is shining, and hopefully the kids can have some fun after being stuck inside all week (and damn I could use it too!) I hope everyone is okay — had some scares with friends and relatives in NJ, but they are all safe. Happy Halloween! XXX

    Those earrings are better than any piece of jewelry ever! Except maybe my ring 🙂 xoxo

    OMG, that pumpkin is seriously the spitting image of FitzRoy!

    Whatever… the other designs entered have nothing on you. There is nothing like your earrings the detail is what makes them but I’m glad you have next years all planned out. I hate that my comments are sporadic but sometimes I can comment from my work pc and sometimes I can’t. Their in-house web security it’s pretty tight.
    BTW that pumpkin has a lot of similarity to FitzRoy
