Mother's Day Event

I am so excited to announce that I will be participating in a Mother's Day Event at Anthropologie's King of Prussia store tomorrow, May 13th!  I'll be custom making my intial birthstone necklaces on the spot!  If you are local or in the area, stop by and shop for your mama (or yourself!).

for May babies

Happy birthday May babies!  The green, lush qualities of spring are certainly represented by your birthstone, emerald.  These modern emerald earrings are very wearable with a hint of drama in the length.  I love the pin connection on these bezel set emeralds, the hand wrought look of the gold-filled wire connections, and the rich color and inclusions in these marquise shaped emeralds.

kickstart to April

A few exciting things have kick started my April.  I was searching to add a turquoise ring to my collection (how I didn't already have one was beyond my comprehension) when I stumbled upon this absolutely lovely Art Nouveau ring.  I found a lot of turquoise rings I loved but I just could not get this one out of my head!  The price was right, the turquoise color is stunning, and the classic Art Nouveau lines are perfection!

I also added a new bracelet to my arsenal: the Reverie bracelet (featured with other Villette bracelets: leather wrap bracelet, ombre aqua bracelet and my Resolution bracelet with garnet and gold filled beads).  The word Hope is hand stamped on brass and threaded on silk bead cord.  Now available for wholesale orders.

Speaking of wholesale orders, I am currently working with a new store opening up in NJ that hopes to carry Villette Jewelry.  More on this to come!

And if you can believe it, my daughter is turning 5 years old in a week!  April is shaping up to be a pretty exciting month!

for April babies

Happy birthday April babies!!!!  Your birthstone is just incredible!  One could get lost in the sea of diamond jewelry available, so it was a hard choice to narrow down for this month's post.  But one of my favorite combos is diamond slices paired with faceted diamond accents... the best of both worlds!  These drop earrings are a beautiful example.

Outfit those drops with a pair of diamond slice ear crawlers and your earring game is a whole other level!

for March babies

Happy birthday March babies!  Let's all take a moment to collectively sigh over these AMAZING aquamarine earrings by Annoushka!  Not only are these aquamarines absolutely stunning, pairing them with apatite and blue tourmaline creates the perfect trifecta of beautiful blues.  The pave diamonds set this to a whole other level of glamorous-ness that I can only dream of one day achieving.  The price tag definitely reflects the quality of stones and materials, but it's fun to dream a little dream and admire this truly outrageous masterpiece of jewelry design.

for February babies

Happy birthday February babies!!!  Some might think that amethyst is such a blasĂ© stone but these incredible Plukka amethyst earrings beg to differ!  The champagne diamond pavĂ© drop is the perfect compliment to the outrageous purple hue and so-right irregular shape of these amethysts.

your month

Now that the holidays are over and the gifts have been given, I can show a few of the things I made this season.  My Initial Birthstone necklaces (top photo) for my daughter and nieces (ages 4 and 6) were a big hit.  They feature a hand stamped initial on a sterling silver disc that is oxidized with a brushed matte finish and tiny briolette birthstone strung on silk bead cord (in their favorite color) with a sterling silver clasp and extender chain (not shown).  The silk bead cord and dainty briolette make these perfectly age appropriate for the little ones and the extender chain allows their necklace to grow with them.

My Mama & Co. necklace (bottom photo) for my cousin Sarah, who is expecting, is one of my favorite gifts to give at baby showers (because mama deserves a gift too!) and features wire wrapped birthstones for mama and baby on a simple cable chain.  Also featured in this photo is my Just Because tags in my gift boxes.  This is something I designed when I first created my packaging when I started my business and I still use them to this day!

for January babies

Happy birthday January babies!  My best friend falls into this category and she has received some seriously nice garnet jewelry over the years.  The deep red of garnets pairs beautifully with a rich higher karat gold.  These stunning Cathy Waterman earrings feature domed garnets set in 22k gold.  I absolutely love the matte gold wheat leaf design... earthy and sophisticated.
