Hamptons Hydrangeas

Posted on August 18, 2018 | 0 comments

I have to admit it...I am obsessed with hydrangeas. They are growing all over my property and outside my boutique in East Hampton so inspiration is everywhere in the summer blooming season!

I carve the hydrangea blossoms out of wax and cast them in sterling silver and am having fun adding all kinds of gemstones to the centers of the flowers.

Looking for a large, light and lacy design I decided to create the blossoms through sterling outlines of the flower heads in full bloom. The 24K gold versions are on the studio bench right now, almost done!

Check out the entire Hamptons Hydrangea collection online or stop by the boutique and try them on!

JA New York Trade Show

Posted on August 06, 2014 | 1 comment

I was honored to be part of the "New Designer Gallery" at the JA New York jewelry trade show that took place last week at the Javits Center in NYC. Every year 10 new designers are chosen to exhibit their jewelry and be exposed to fine jewelry buyers from around the world.

My favorite part of participating in a trade show is getting to know the artists/designers around you. I have learned so much from them and it is always fun to be around other entrepreneurs.

There was so much press at the show as well, I think I was interviewed at least 30 times! I was blown away though when I found out that the Editor At Large, Jeff Prine, of Accessories Magazine put an article online during the show choosing one of my pieces as the "Item of the Day"! 

                             

Overall it was an amazing experience and fabulous opportunities and connections were made. Loved it!

Navy Seal Jewelry

Posted on February 16, 2013 | 0 comments
 
A very good friend of my husband is an elite Navy Seal currently serving our country. Last year he had asked me if I would design a piece of jewelry for him to give to his future wife. He told me about his favorite myth and wanted me to design the piece based on the story.

Both history and mythology are combined in this heartwarming story. Coma Berenices is an actual constellation, located near Leo. Its name literally means "Berenice's Hair".  Berenice  was an Egyptian Queen and her husband was off serving at war. The myth states that Berenice was so concerned about the safety of her husband, that she promised the goddess Aphrodite that she would sacrifice her beautiful blonde hair if her husband returned home from war safely.

Her husband did return safely. Faithful to her word, she cut off her hair and offered it to the gods who had watched over her husband. The gods were so pleased with Berenices sacrifice that they placed her hair into the heavens creating the constellation.

With 'full artistic license' I came up with a number of designs which I e-mailed to him while he was overseas and he chose this one.  The silver circle represents both earth and the moon. The gold strands represent Berenice's beautiful blonde hair, and the diamonds are the stars which create the actual constellation.

Creating this piece was such an honor for me to do. I cried when he e-mailed me the story. The loved ones of military personnel are going through their own battles. My heart goes out to the families for enduring many sacrifices and I thank those men and women who choose to serve our country. Especially the amazing Navy Seals!!!
