TGIF! There are so many jewelry style trends out there now that I decided to share a few of my favorite ones. The key to a trend is not to over do it and to make it your own. Here are some cute styles I found on Pinterest of a few of my favorite trends. I’ve even added a new board called “Styling With Jewelry” be sure to follow it!
This is a great way to get a minimalist stacking chain bracelet look. What I love most about this look is that it’s personalized with the hand stamped chain bracelet. Simple goes a long way!
Back necklaces became a resurrected style from the 1920s when Anne Hathaway adorned the red carpet at the Oscars with her gleaming and stunning necklace. The key to wearing a back necklace is the necklace has to fit the plunging back. I love how this necklace flows with the contour of the back line.
This trend has to be my absolute favorite one, multiple rings. It looks even better when you finish the look with a deep colored nail polish like the burgundy color in this picture. The key to this trend is to keep the rings on 3 fingers and not all of them. Play up the shapes and even try mixed metal looks.

When people ask where I get my inspiration from when creating jewelry designs I draw a complete blank and am at a loss for words. I could say “I draw inspiration from the shapes of the clouds” or “the colors of sunset” (sounds nice and deep right?), but that wouldn’t be completely true. To be honest majority of my inspiration comes from my customers. I pay attention to what items sell, what colors are purchased, the feedback they give, the suggestions that they make and pictures they send me wearing the jewelry they’ve purchased from me. That’s the real deal inspiration for me. I could sit here all day and draw inspiration from external sources and create something lovely, but if my customers don’t love it then what’s the point.
One of item that received much attention from my customers is the Gold Brass Envelope Necklace below. It’s one of the designs that I have continuously worked on to make it my “own” over time. Every time I’ve sat down to create a modified version to it I found my self making it more and more personal. Recently I took a completely different angle when designing the newest modified version of it (3rd picture). I even added a little “textured” look by hammering it a bit. This version comes hanging from a 14kt gold filled chain to give it a more timeless appeal. Since I’m all about personalizing I even added a hand stamped option in the listing. Hope you like you.

Our October newsletter is out! Check it out and if you haven’t signed up for our Fall Giveaway you only have 2 more days. Happy October!!
Here are some of my picks for the fall, after all fall fashion is all about accessorizing!
Oversize Clutch – A great grab and go handbag that can be worn with literally any look. It’s especially perfect for evenings out on the town.
Sole Society Sunglasses– The sun in the fall can be very brutal. Some people think sunglasses are only for the summer season, but we actually need them year round, especially during the colder months.
Yellow and Brown Quartz Ring – Make your statement this fall with this statement ring.
Merlot Tinted Lip Balm – A perfect fall color that will also keep your lips moisturized.
Brown Pashmina Scarf – Scarves are an essential accessory for the fall. The great thing about a pashmina are the many ways you can wear it.
Gold Hoop Earrings- Hoop earrings are my favorite accessory all year round, but especially during the fall. These have a tear drop shape which adds a little twist on the simple hoop look.
