rough diamonds

I can't stop thinking about Sarah Perlis's necklaces! And it seems that my obsession with diamonds has reached an all time high... as is evident from my posts for the last couple of months. I might need to take the plunge and start using diamonds in my own work. And the first place I would start is with a diamond slice or rough diamond necklace like Sarah Perlis's. When the stone is A-MA-ZING all you need is the simplest setting and let the stone speak for itself.

Well, the trunk show on Friday was so much fun! JKarma was a wonderful host and I was so excited to have the chance to talk with so many people. If you missed out on the show, I still have a good selection of pieces available at JKarma Boutique.

Shoes and Booze event

Please join us tomorrow! I am so excited to be a part of this event, meet some new people, and take advantage myself of this amazing sale at JKarma. I have a feeling my credit card will be worse for wear but my accessories wardrobe will look fabulous!

perfectly simple necklace

I just can't get enough of gold and oxidized silver! I am loving this necklace by Ten Thousand Things. It would be a great piece to layer with other necklaces but is amazing enough to stand on it's own.

Anthropologie's new wedding brand, BHLDN (pronounced "Beholden"), launched today. Even if you aren't planning your own nuptials, their accessories and event dresses are worthy of a perusal. I especially love their 5-strand necklace.

Happy Valentine's Day!

new additions

I took one of my coworkers to Halloween today and, needless to say, she is now hooked! This jewelry store really is amazing. And now my search is over for a wear-everyday, marcasite bracelet. Welcome to my wrist, beautiful bracelet!

I have been buying a lot of vintage watches lately to make my watchcase lockets but I have found that with about every 5 watches I buy, 1 makes it's way into my jewelry box. Some are just so beautiful, I cannot bare to part with them. I have quite the collection forming. So now this beauty is being worn as a bracelet... who cares if it doesn't work?!

I have been looking for a pair of exaggerated, elongated marquise-shaped earrings (I mean, I want them to almost graze my shoulder!). I love the mix of silver and gold and the different textures of these earrings.
