Tweet Thank SO MUCH to gorgeous JCK Magazine editor Jennifer Heebner, who was working on a story about earring jackets when she discovered that my FitzRoy-the-cat earring jackets and birthstone studs were actually the start of a whole FitzRoy collection. She did a separate story about Fitz and his 18K-gold jewelry! I’ve already posted the […]

Tweet I do love those old-school Minnetonka moccasins from my last post, but what’s a moccasin lover to do when she’s invited to a black-tie soirée? Upgrade to mirrored Gucci moccasins, of course! These are my kind of crazy, but when it comes to online window shopping, I’m still more in love with the pink […]

Tweet I didn’t get around to finishing my Oscar posts in a timely way, but it’s never too late to talk about jewelry and men’s fashion, right? Anyway, it’s Throwback Thursday so I’m going to go there. My favorite piece of jewelry at the 2015 Oscars was the Piaget ear cuff and matching stud worn […]

Tweet Did anyone catch Damon Darlin’s article, “America Needs Its Own Emojis,” in the New York Times Sunday Review section? As he reminds us, emojis originated in Japan, so they don’t cover all of America’s emoji needs: “Indeed, the Japanese vocabulary is most notable for what it fails to offer Americans. For example, there is […]

Tweet Actor Leonard Nimoy — best known for playing ultra-logical Vulcan Mr. Spock in the Star Trek television show and movies — died today of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease at age 83. Nimoy was much more than Spock, of course. He was a Renaissance man who wrote books; directed television shows and movies; spoofed himself […]

Tweet I’m in Los Angeles, thrilled to be away from the 1 degree winter weather at home in New York. Last night, we went to a super-fun Oscar viewing party hosted by movie producer Harvey Weinstein, followed by the Vanity Fair after-party. There’s been a couple of times when I’ve worn a dress to the […]

Tweet I’m continuing to make a series of cabochon birthstone studs that you can wear alone or with my FitzRoy the cat earring jackets. Here’s a close look at a single FitzRoy with January’s birthstone, garnet. February’s birthstone is amethyst and I’ve got one pair of amethyst studs available for any end-of-the-month birthday celebrations. Amethyst […]

Tweet I really need to get back to writing my history-inspired posts! Here’s a throwback one in honor of the Chinese New Year. One of my favorite badass royal ladies was Empress Wu, as she’s known now. When she ruled China in the 7th century, she used the name Emperor Shensheng (spelling may vary), making […]

Tweet I’ve got to give a belated thank you to the San Francisco Chronicle for including a nice big photo of my gold IDGAF necklace in a Valentine’s Day story called “Tough-Love Tactics.” The Chronicle also shouted out my “Screw U” mixed earring pair, which I would love to see someone wear with Stubbs & […]

Tweet I was inspired this week to take a little video of two of my mechanical jewelry designs. The first is the Sophie twisting heart necklace, which I wrote about recently. When I was working on that post, I didn’t have the extra pair of hands required to record video, but a few days ago […]
