What I'm Wearing Today…

Posted by & filed under What I'm Wearing.

I know Erica has already posted about the new 14K Yellow Gold Delicate hitchcock Madrona rings but I am so obsessed with the three I ordered for myself  that I can’t help but post again… they are perfection, they are my new go-to, everyday, staple. I’m already considering getting a few more… I told you: obsessed!

14K Yellow Gold Delicate Rings, hitchcock Madrona $135 (worn on pinky, middle, and ring fingers) Eric Saeter, Snake Ring, personal (worn on thumb)

Also feeling a little Spring-ier (weather excluded) wearing the scarf I picked up in Paris last summer at the Sandro men shop and my new Essie nail color in Geranium.

Bisou, bisou,

Who's the lucky lady?

Posted by & filed under Iosselliani.

This Rutilated Quartz Necklace is one of my favorite pieces in the store right now.  This amazing piece needs a good home.  I love to think about the pieces of jewelry that we create and how they go home with people and live with them – instead of living in the store where I look after them.  🙂  I ask: “Who is the lucky lady?”

What I am wearing…

Rutilated Quartz Knotted on Silk with Sterling Silver Chain, hitchcock Madrona $875

Bronze “Gemstone” and Silver Ring, Iosselliani $195

14K White Gold and Diamond Eternity Band 1/3 carat (G/H Quality), hitchcocck Madrona $795

14K Yellow Gold Delicate Rings, hitchcock Madrona $135 (worn on middle and ring finger)

I know that it seems kind of over dramatic but jewelry is one of the rare items that we own but never really own.  Precious metals, such as, gold and sterling silver and gemstones will be on the planet long after we are gone.  I am my jewelry’s temporary keeper until the next generation can enjoy them.  Even costume jewelry pieces are heirlooms – it doesn’t have to be fine.

This is one of the most beautiful strands of rutilated quartz I have ever seen.  You can tell the quality is superior because the quartz is clear and the rutiles are defined and sharp.  The stones facets are cut even and beautifully and each stone is approximately the same size, which is very unique.

Here is a closer look –

Do you have a piece of jewelry that will be here when you are gone?  Do you think about where it will go to be safe and enjoyed?

XOXO,

Erica

What I am wearing today…and Unearthen Watches

Posted by & filed under Surplus, What I'm Wearing, Xenia Mara.

Hello Spring!  I love all the gold and copper tones with this muted pink polished cotton blouse.  I think mixing bronze, yellow gold, and rose gold works so nicely.  The warmth in all of these metals are enhanced by each other.

Rutilated Quartz Gold Earrings, hitchcock Madrona $225

Copper Layers Chains, Xenia Mara $335

Antique Bronze African Amulet Necklace, Surplus $235

Vintage Sterling Silver and Bronze ID Bracelet (mine)

Rose Gold Large Watch with Crystal Face, Unearthen $455

The crystal watches designed by Gia from Unearthen are some of the coolest pieces that we carry.  This is a working vintage watch.  She has created a frame for the natural rock crystal pyramid on the face.  The properties of the crystal  reflects the watch face four times – something that glass would never accomplish.

Presently, we have a large rose gold and a small silver in stock – no two are alike so if you like one of these call me and snap it up!

XOXO

Windows: Grandma's House

Posted by & filed under Dustin, Lulu Frost, Shop Design.

I am obsessed with the windows right now!  When I drove by the store on Monday morning I was so awe struck by the simple yet totally creative window display that Dustin created into the wee hours of Sunday morning.  They currently feature vintage inspired Lulu Frost necklaces on the left (perfect) and Barbour boots and bag on the right.  The architectural elements (we found the railing in the garbage) and vintage curtains remind me so much of our grandmother’s house in California.  She always wore bright, patterned, citrus colored house dresses and Rod Laver Adidas tennis shoes.  So cool.

Happy sunshine Madrona!

XOXO
