Tweet Last year, a British singer named Moko caught my eye as well as my ear when she put out an EP (her second) called Gold. Can you blame me? Look at this woman! I’m obsessed with her look. Talk about a signature hair style! Moko’s got substance as well as style. In 2013, she […]

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 My gorgeous mother BarbaraB inherited an old opal-and-diamond pendant.  Normally, I’d redesign something like this, but opals are very soft and it’s not always a good idea to disturb them. Instead, I got her a 21″ chain so the pendant would hit her in the right spot. Pretty, isn’t it?
