Tweet This month, Pantone named “Marsala” as the color of the year for 2015, describing it as a “robust and earthy wine red.” As always, there was criticism of Pantone’s choice, but I like the color because it reminds me of garnets. This fall, I designed a garnet stud and ear jacket combo featuring FitzRoy […]

Tweet I was looking for Purrkoy the kitten recently. FitzRoy, his older cat brother, was like, “Kitten? What kitten? We have a kitten?” I think Fitz is tired of PK’s big butt blocking his view of the pigeons.

Tweet Because this Throwback Thursday is also the day before Halloween, allow me to present — again — one of my all-time favorite pumpkin carvings: 2011’s Rick Ross Rap-O-Lantern. As a jewelry designer, I had mad love for rapper Rick Ross’s diamond depictions of his own face, so I flipped out when I saw the […]

Tweet FitzRoy and Purrkoy — my exotic shorthair kittehs — met two of their out-of-town fans this weekend.  “Stratsquam” (Kelli) and “WitnessTheThickness” (Aaron) are a lovely young couple who attended medical school together and who came to New York to interview for a residency. They’re also two of FitzRoy’s most ardent Instagram followers. Last week, […]

Tweet Last month, I laughed out loud when I saw this “Bust the Myth” promotional campaign for shelter pets. “Shelter pets are not broken. Shelter pets are not damaged goods,” declared Adopt-a-Pet.com on Facebook, next to a cartoon of an adorably disintegrating cat-and-dog pair. It’s true that, if you’re sensible, you can pick out perfectly […]

Tweet While traveling in Europe last month, I did some things that I’d wanted to do for decades. I visited Liverpool, which I first dreamed of doing in 1980. I’m glad Mark Lewisohn, the author of Tune In, the 2013 book about the Beatles that prompted me to finally take the trip, saw that I […]
