It’s Day 4 of my February Jewels of the Month countdown for Valentine’s Day/anti-Valentine’s Day. I’m alternating between the two themes, and it’s time for an anti-Valentine piece. It’s also Throwback Thursday, so I’m going to go with my most popular message necklace, introduced in 2012. Got zero fucks to give about Valentine’s Day? Treat […]

I’ve been daydreaming about wearing head-to-toe red sequins on Valentine’s Day. Bianca Jagger looked fabulous in her dress and matching beret in 1974. Dustin Hoffman didn’t look half bad either! You can skip the dress-shopping and look ravishing in red on Valentine’s Day (and every other day) with my one-of-a-kind Juana peekaboo skull locket. It’s […]

With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, I’m going to go crazy and give you a countdown of 14 Jewels of the Month instead of the usual one. Of course, not everyone feels the love for this holiday, so I’m going to alternate between Valentine’s Day suggestions for the romantics — and anti-Valentine’s Day designs suitable […]

I went into jewelry designing full-time in 2005, and I did a lot of small trunk shows and private sales right up until the financial crash of 2008. Some of the shows were in homes of friends and family, others were in hotels. This photo from January 2006 was taken in the home of a […]

I was browsing 1980s vintage while watching the Golden Globes red carpet, and I had to point out this ruffled Pierre Cardin design to my designing friend Stacy Lomman. Stacy is the one who looked through my closet once and said, “Wow! Even your ruffles have ruffles!” I said, “Do you think this has enough […]

Early this year, I unveiled the first part of a mini-collection inspired by FitzRoy, my cat who is Instagram-famous for sitting in a big orange bowl. Cartier has its iconic panther designs, but the Exotic Shorthair cat demographic was sadly neglected by the fine-jewelry industry. I had to come to the rescue. First, I did […]

If you missed Jessica Bennett’s recent New York Times story on the latest developments in Internet-speak, you better read it if you ever hope to communicate with me again. Srsly, the new jargon is so second-nature for me now that I just can’t even when people don’t use it. When I get a text, email […]

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 […]

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 […]
