LUXURIES FOR YOUR SOUL PODCAST IS COMING SOON!
January 14, 2019
This time last year I was only a few months into owning and operating my gallery while navigating the changes brought to the family dynamic. I believe I did the best I could and I continue to implement changes to build upon what I learned in my first full year as a gallery owner and productive member of my community.
This year my personal goal is "creation". My sole focus is design-driven. I am designating this year to challenge myself by looking deeper inside, quietly creating what is in my soul, whichever way I feel. As a bonus, I will be launching several new collections.

Giving Tuesday, often stylized as #GivingTuesday for the purposes of hashtag activism, refers to the Tuesday after U.S. Thanksgiving in the United States. It is a movement to create an international day of charitable giving at the beginning of the Christmas and the holiday season - the perfect day for a random act of kindness!
Today on social media, I posted an image of the new mini shields I am giving away to the 43 YoungMoms this holiday season. Seeing them laid out like this makes me emotional, I am unsure if I will be able to hold it together when I present them on December 18th. I will have to remember to wear waterproof mascara!

Last spring I was working on a Tuesday afternoon when one of my collectors stopped in to discuss our jewelry collaboration. She had just come from the 7th annual fundraising brunch for YoungMoms and was glowing. I asked her to leave the program from the brunch, which I kept for many months, moving it from drawer to drawer every time I re-organized. I touched that program so many times and with each time, I kept thinking: how can I make a difference in the lives of those families? But, I knew that it would come to me just in time to hang up the holiday stockings in my gallery…
I believe the true magic of Christmas is found in sharing and giving back to those in need. You may have read my recent blog post about the inspiration for this initiative but if you haven’t, you can read it here or continue reading the rest of this post.

Have you ever stopped to think about what anchors you? Honestly, I haven't. Even though I designed multiple anchors for my upcoming Seaside Collection, I just never thought about how I feel about anchors as they pertain to my everyday life.
Clandestine Kitchen, a “total body wellness” brand, fuses together clean nutrition with other important facets of healthy living such as fitness, beauty, fashion and surrounding oneself with good, positive vibes.

When JCK Magazine's Amy Elliot contacted me for an interview and event recap on Golden Hour, I was ecstatic.
The classic trunk show "shopping night" is overdone and I, for one, prefer the opportunity to have bonding moments and casual discussions. Therefore, our event was the perfect intimate party and I look forward to collaborating with David Ferron again in the future.
Thank you, Amy and JCK Magazine for the feature on All That Glitters!

I waited over a year to have my first-ever gallery event. Because (I think) there are too many local shopping nights in Historic Kennett Square, I wanted to do something different, something distinctive.
Teaming up with David Ferron of Unionville Saddle was perfection and our event went off without a hitch! I can't wait to do it again.

My mother didn't pass down any jewelry to me and I never saw the ring she received when my father proposed. I guess it’s not important, since they divorced when I was a toddler. However, since repurposing inherited pieces is one of my favorite design challenges, I am occasionally reminded of what little (in terms of jewelry) I have to remember those that have passed on.
