Instead of making resolutions for the new year, I create one personal goal that revolves around one word. Last year's word of the year was "creation". I chose "creation" to challenge myself in various areas surrounding design, collaboration and creating opportunities. I gave myself permission to spend the year practicing spontaneity while taking bigger risks.

October 4th is the First Friday Art Stroll in Kennett Square and I will be joining the Square Pear Art Gallery (across the street from my gallery) for an Inspired By Nature Collaboration. You can enjoy fine art, wine, appetizers, and lovely conversation.
My gallery will be closed on Friday to accommodate our evening showing from 6pm - 9pm with the Square Pear. Hopefully I will see you there!
Opening the door to my Kennett Square jewelry gallery, 2.4 years ago today, was a dream come true. Celebrating your stories through the re-designing of your heirlooms or helping you select pieces from my jewelry collections is something I cherish, something I will never take for granted. The pieces we create are our Legacy, together. Thank you for another great year! Whoo!

A fabulous local collector inherited a pearl necklace, one she did not think she would ever wear. She just wasn't a "pearl person" even though pearls are a classic choice, the condition of the necklace was excellent, intact and well strung.
Knowing my collector loves to wear gold layers and meaningful charms, that she’s classic yet edgy, and always on the go, I knew she needed flexibility on how she would wear the pearls, to honor her style.

Emeralds are one of the most prized colored gemstones due to their unique characteristics and rare qualities. I am captivated by their mysterious deep green color and rich history. They are one of the most significant jewels of our time. Fine Emeralds are so rare they may rival or exceed the carat-for-carat value of the Diamond. Legend states that Emeralds were one of the four precious stones given to God by King Solomon, giving him power over all creation.
Finally, the greater Philadelphia area has its own home & decor magazine, and I am featured in the premier issue! THREAD is a magazine about great local design by Studio 882. It just so happens that when we relocated to the Brandywine Valley, Studio 882 was the first furniture store I wandered into, where I purchased a rug and became instant friends with owners Chad and Katie Groves.
Congratulations on the premier issue : THREAD
