Tweet 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 […]

Tweet Thanks to Accessories Magazine for including my raised hand emoji earring in today’s “Trend Finders” post! In case you missed it last month, the Unicode Consortium — aka Emoji Headquarters — revealed 38 new emojis that are proposed for a June 2016 launch. The list includes crossed fingers, which I already have in jewelry […]

Tweet Thanks to Cindy Edelstein of National Jeweler for including my snake earrings in her TrendTracker piece on serpentine designs. 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 […]

Tweet 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.

Tweet 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 […]

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 […]
