Here is the gold locket […]

For the first time in seven years, the Costume Institute will do a fall show: “Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire,” will run […]

The WJA describes itself as “a networking organization dedicated to enriching and advancing the professional lives of the women in the jewelry and watch industries.” I call it a great opportunity for me to meet up […]

Tweet It’s Earth Day today! In honor of the occasion — and ahead of World Oceans Day on June 8 — the Los Angeles Times did a feature on jewelry inspired by sea life. My 18K yellow gold turtle locket is included! I’m amused that I’m called an Angeleno in that caption. People who see […]

Tweet During my holiday sale, gorgeous customer Erica purchased my 18K gold-and-diamond Juana crossbones necklace. She sent me two photos in an email with “The Loveliest Bones” in the subject line. It said: “Wanted to let you know that the crossbones necklace is perfection! I have been wearing it nonstop since I got it. The […]

Tweet I got a nice mention in the September issue of Jeweller Magazine, a jewelry trade magazine for Australia and New Zealand.  The story by India Nicholson is about jewelry with secret compartments; it really gets into the history of this type of design: I was pleased to see a mention of a locket ring […]

Tweet You know how the fashion press declares red lipstick to be in style again every few years? The same thing seems to happen with black gems. I’m pretty sure I’ve already sent out “black gems” selections to editors and store buyers twice since starting my business in 2005. It’s clearly time for a third […]

Tweet Have any of you seen Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby movie? What did you think? The reviews make me disinclined to see it. I hate the grungy, crowded movie theaters in New York City, so I don’t like to venture into them unless I know the movie is worthwhile. If I were out in Los Angeles, […]
