Villette jewelry at Earth Shack

I am excited to announce that one of the projects I have been working on is product for a new retailer I am collaborating with, Earth Shack, located in the Amish Market in Mullica Hill, NJ. Earth Shack is an earth friendly store with product that is repurposed or handmade by artisans in Southern NJ. I am very excited about this newly formed relationship with a retailer that supports locally handmade items!

ring inspiration

Working on 2 pretty exciting projects (more on this to come!) and have been looking for some great ring inspiration. I am loving these 2 rings (from here and here). I think I might cry when (or IF) mixing gold and oxidized silver falls out of style!

chain link ring

BHLDN posted this on their Facebook page today and I instantly fell in love. The design is so simple and dainty but the chain link band is such a stand out!

leather bracelet love

I purchased this leather bracelet almost a year ago but have been wearing it pretty much every day the last couple of months. I like that it adds a little edge to my girlier outfits (which is pretty much my entire wardrobe lately, as my pregnant belly expands!) but it was neither expensive nor has sentimental value... I just have gotten accustomed to wearing it. Last week it came loose from my wrist and I was devastated at the thought that I had lost it (luckily, I found it in my driveway the next morning!). But it made me remember that sometimes there is no rhyme or reason why you love a piece of jewelry, you just do, and that is a wonderful thing.

black diamond studs

I realized that there will come a time when I won't be able to wear dangly earrings for a little while, specifically my go to hoops, due to little baby fingers grabbing on and holding on for dear life. So I have been looking to purchase some great stud earrings since I have very few in my jewelry box. These studs by Cathy Waterman would make me miss my hoops so much less!

four different ways to say love

My husband and I are not big celebrators of Valentine's Day. But there is something wonderful about a day dedicated to love. Here are 4 perfect ways to tell her you love her... heart beat necklace, non-traditional heart necklace, ampersand necklace, personalized inscribed ring.
