Today is World Emoji Day, and if you’ve been wondering why, check the date on the calendar emoji*. According to Emojipedia, July 17 was selected because iCal for Mac was announced at MacWorld Expo on July 17, 2002.

It’s rare that I get to introduce a full collection (nearly) all at once. Usually I’m creating and revealing just one or two designs at a time. But today is different! June’s Jewels of the Month are the first nine styles of my brand-new Punk Platinum line. I was inspired to do this collection after […]

This earring style — and its matching necklace — was inspired by and named after Mary Queen of Scots. For the mini history lesson that explains that, click here. I’ve had this design for quite a […]

When Jennifer Heebner of JCK Magazine interviewed me last month about my growing FitzRoy-the-Cat jewelry collection, I told her I had just finished ear climbers.

I can’t believe that I wrote about Ariana Grande’s signature cat-ear headbands AND her breakup with rapper boyfriend Big Sean yesterday without mentioning Sean’s song “Stay Down.” I was so engrossed in using my stud letter earrings to spell the abbreviation for “I Don’t Fuck With You” — Sean’s hostile ode to a previous ex […]
