Tweet Thank you to gorgeous Brecken Branstrator for including my one-of-a-kind She Sells Seashells ring in her National Jeweler post on summer-inspired jewelry! The 18K-rose-gold ring features a hand-carved rose-quartz “shell” and diamonds. It makes a statement but it’s not a red-carpet-only ring. You can definitely wear this one on a casual day. Just don’t […]

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 Cindy Edelstein of National Jeweler reports in her weekly Trend Tracker post that turquoise is “having a real moment in the sun.” That’s an appropriate description, seeing as the cheerfully colored stone is perfect for summer. Of course, just because we use a bright color in our jewelry doesn’t mean we can’t be our […]

Tweet I love lists titled “The Best of the Best,” because it makes me think of the overeager West Point graduate in Men in Black who barks “Because we’re the best of the best of the best … SIR!” I love “Best of the Best” lists even more when I’m part of them! I had […]

Tweet My hair guru Keith Carpenter and his partner Olivier had a dinner party on Saturday at their beautiful apartment in Brooklyn. I dressed in the same Zang Toi jacket/faux-garter tights combo that I wore to see Cabaret in January and to Zang’s Fall 2014 runway show.  What can I say? I like this outfit! […]

Tweet I’ve always thought my New York City taxi ring needed a few accessories. I finally found some! You can get these 1980s vintage Moschino shoes on 1stdibs. I also found a taxi purse at a store called The Wind in the Willows in Naples, Fla. I was a big fan of The Wind in […]

Tweet 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 […]

Tweet I really need to get back to writing my history-inspired posts! Here’s a throwback one in honor of the Chinese New Year. One of my favorite badass royal ladies was Empress Wu, as she’s known now. When she ruled China in the 7th century, she used the name Emperor Shensheng (spelling may vary), making […]

Tweet I was inspired this week to take a little video of two of my mechanical jewelry designs. The first is the Sophie twisting heart necklace, which I wrote about recently. When I was working on that post, I didn’t have the extra pair of hands required to record video, but a few days ago […]
