I cant ever pass up the opportunity to plug a GREAT sale and because I feel like there is never such a thing as too many rings or too much jewelry in a girls jewel box for that matter, here is something I just couldn't go without posting!

Cabochons GALORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have to say a new find that I absolutely cant wait to work with are these AMAZING vintage cabochons! I have yet to put them to work in any of the pieces I have made so far so for me they happened to be a "new find" even-though cabochons are among the oldest types of gemstones. In gem speak terms a cabochon is a stone that is cut to have a highly polished almost always rounded top with no faceting, with a flat but sometimes slightly domed base. 
You are most likely to find certain stones such as opal, turquoise, onyx, moonstone, and star sapphire almost always cut "en cabochon."

An absolute fav of mine, as well as one of the more popular shapes is the oval cut cabochons. Technically, cabochons are not really "cut" but they are actually shaped and then polished making it much simpler  to produce a cabochon than it is to cut a faceted gem with many faces. Faceting within itself is an art-form, but before the art of faceting was developed, most all gemstones were produced as cabochons.

 Im not so sure if Im mesmerized by how great they look together in this pic as much as I am excited to actually make something out of them... I will update shortly but I have also included some other fabulous finds among the cabochons family  ...

INVITATION ONLY - Right Place at the Right Time

May 13, 2010

A few weeks ago while dropping by one of the local boutiques which I am currently working with re consignment, I had the opportunity to meet with a wonderful woman whom heads up a product placement company right here in Hollywood. We got to talking, she loved what I had to offer and decided it was right up the alley of her "Eco Chic" client list. We exchanged info and decided to touch base in the upcoming weeks. Well, those weeks have flown by, we spoke briefly yesterday and last night I received the INVITE pictured to the left!

The email that accompanied this invitation read:

Inspired By... On a mission to recreate!!!!

May 11, 2010

One of my favorite things about designing, creating and making jewelry are the endless possibilities to once again CREATE! In this case, I am "Inspired By" and honored with a recent sort of recession chic request... Who wants to pay full price for anything anyways, especially when I am confident I bring to life another level of this piece by adding the extra attention, love and care of a handmade recreation! I am excited to start the process and will update you through the process! 
This is also very timely as I continue to see this trend become increasingly popular entering the spring and summer months... Fashion Designers are using them. Celebrities are wearing them. Stores are carrying them. And I am creating ONE!
The Trend: Statement Jewelry! In this case a Statement NECKLACE!
