I love to redesign old jewelry for customers and the mother of all redesign opportunities was literally handed to me in March. My gorgeous mother, BarbaraB, had to take off her engagement ring ahead of a minor medical procedure, only to find that it couldn’t be budged. The ring had to be cut off. BarbaraB […]

I’m happy to see that jewelry guru Cindy Edelstein’s latest TrendTracker post for National Jeweler is about Y-necklaces. Cindy writes: “You knew it had to have a comeback soon … the Y-neck of the 1990s is back en vogue now and enough time has passed so that we’re actually enjoying it. This time around they’re […]

How do the summers fly by, while one dreary month like March always seems to last a year?! At least August has a beautiful birthstone — yellow-green peridot. In celebration, I have a few new photos of my one-of-a-kind Susan earrings, which are back on my website after a hiatus. I’m making them my Jewel […]

According to the astrological calendar, the sign of Cancer rules from June 21 to July 22.  Cancer is the Latin word for crab, which is why the zodiac sign is represented by a crab and why my Jewels of the Month are my crab emoji designs. You might not be familiar with the crab emoji […]

I want to highlight one of the styles I introduced in yesterday’s post: the ankle bracelet, aka anklet. While anklets have been around since ancient times and are still a perennial in some cultures, in the U.S. they’ve gone in and out of fashion. I say they’re due for a big, fine-jewelry comeback! In recent […]

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 […]

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. Here they are … May’s Jewel of the Month! These kittehs are handmade in 18K yellow gold here in New York City, and modeled after my own Exotic Shorthair, FitzRoy […]

Are all of you Anne Boleyn/Tudor history fans watching Wolf Hall on Masterpiece on PBS? I saw the excellent theatrical adaptations of Hilary Mantel’s historical novel Wolf Hall and its sequel, Bring Up the Bodies, in London last summer. The books and adaptations are about the rise of Thomas Cromwell, who rose from poverty to […]

I usually feature my newest design as the Jewel of the Month, but for March, I was inspired to take another look at an old favorite. After struggling home through snow and sleet this evening, I was happy to throw myself into FitzRoy the cat’s favorite chair and watch a Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season […]

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 is […]
