garden party

Distressed denim and drippy chain, crystallized orchids and creamy pearls. Recycle jeans in the BEST way by turning them into edgy jewelry! These orchids came from a broken hair clip, so why not reinvent them with a scrap of denim for glam grunge style?…… V 90’s but still v 2017. To make your own, cut … Continue Reading

young artist spotlight: @maxy_sama

The girl can draw! For this post, I’ve teamed up with young artist Maddi (of YouTube account @maxy_sama) for a collab post featuring her art and my jewelry! I thought Maddi’s Joker drawing was the perfect inspiration for a necklace design. Hobby Lobby has an entire line of DC Comics themed charms, pendants and jewelry components … Continue Reading

Predicting 2017’s Oscars Fashion Trends

Tomorrow night is quite possibly one of the most anticipated nights of any movie or fashion lover’s year. I’m honestly more excited for tomorrow’s Blackhawks and Cubs games, but I’ll play along for a bit to tune into the Oscar fashion highlights. I’ve got my top {predicted} fashion trends below which I think will rule … Continue Reading

pretty in paradise

This shoot’s a tropic PUNCH of color – mostly thanks to a stunning floral arrangement which complimented my almost monochromatic statement necklace perfectly. You already know my draw to these imperfectly perfect tangled necklaces (view some other creations here and here), but this time, something’s new. If you see the focal crystal below, an unusual … Continue Reading

camilla necklace

  Pins and needles, pearls and purple orchids mix and mingle in this edgily chic necklace.

Skulls and bones and the deep mahogany tones of this necklace – complete with fire opal sparkles courtesy Swarovski – mean this might be one of my favorite pieces yet. The inspiration started with this shimmering tiger’s eye skully pendant. Tiger’s eye is one of my most favorite stones, as each stone transforms, depending on … Continue Reading

fall trend report: chokers

It’s October already?! I mean, I literally dress the same no matter what season: all black, boots, and loads of jewelry. I’m not a firm believer in winter/summer style, or dressing specifically for any season. However, this fall particularly, I feel is style GOLD. There’s a couple trends in fall style that are just TOO … Continue Reading

lotus potions

Lotus flowers, henna potions and golden glows mix with a recurring theme of bohemian glitz for this mini-motif post. The fresh buzzed undercut clearly steals the show, if you ask me – if you haven’t tried an undercut yet, what you waitin’ for? And while it’s officially / not officially the end of summer, get … Continue Reading

once upon a cupcake…..

Sugar, spice and everything nice; commence the cupcakes. This sweet tooth found its match at the Morean Arts Center Second Annual Cupcake Contest in St. Petersburg, Florida. Saccharine in the very best way, I was inundated with cakes of all sizes. Minis, colossal confections and everything in between, I merely moseyed up and down the aisles, … Continue Reading
