A Little Edge for Spring ’13…



I had a ‘Mother/Daughter Day’ shopping jewels for my upcoming Spring/Summer 2013 Collection.   I always like taking her with me; she’s honest.  Sometimes brutally so, which is fortunate (or unfortunate depending on my mood) because it’s so easy to get stuck in a design habit.

It’s nice having a little extra insight.

My style has always been decidedly girlie.  Short dresses, lace, pink~ you name it, it defines my look.  And while this has always been reflected in my jewelry design, I’m aiming to be a little edgier for Spring/Summer 2013.  It’s turning out to be a little harder than I had anticipated; it’s like going against a girlie force of nature.

 The process has been made easier with my finds of gorgeous metal-esque looking pyrite, darker more intense stones and little skull details (albeit in rose gold).  So hopefully this will add a little depth to the collection.

Baby steps.

Then, as our ‘Mother/Daughter Days’ often go, we stopped by a cafe in the design district for some sauvignon blanc and catching up.  Perfect way to end our shopping day…
