sarah michelle gellar & self magazine cover

There's Team Edward and Team Jacob, but we've always been cheerleaders for Team Buffy. And now that the television show, "Ringer" has captured our attention, we can say that we are simply Team Sarah Michelle Gellar. So naturally, we were doing herkies when the lovely actress wore our Fountain Splash earrings on the cover of the December 2011 issue of Self Magazine. RAH!

discarded to divine.

Jewelry we designed in conjunction with the program, "Discarded to Divine" will be on exhibit at the de Young Museum in San Francisco tonight. Clothing, accessories and jewelry designers were asked to contribute and create one of a kind items made from materials found in the discarded bins at the St. Vincent de Paul Society Help Desk. The stipulation was that all designs had to be inspired by works of art shown at the de Young Museum. We converted cufflinks, tie tacks into earrings inspired by Gauguin's “Tahitian Women on the Beach” and Oceanic tribal art. We even transformed a pair of earrings from the lost and found, into a necklace that was inspired by Van Gogh’s “Starry Night Over The Rhone.”
Here is the finished necklace along with two other earrings we made for the benefit.

The donated jewelry will be sold at a gala auction on April 28, 2011 to benefit the good works of St. Vincent de Paul Society, known for providing a helping hand to the homeless and working poor. For ticket information to attend the gala auction, please click here.

hospitality design.

“Hospitality Design,” an influential interior design trade magazine, dedicated its January/February 2011 issue to the idea of inspiration. Editors interviewed designers and artists from the creative fields of photography, stage design, fashion, food, architecture and fine jewelry to provide its readers with a little spark and stimuli. Influential interviewees included fashion designer Chris Benz and David Revere McFadden, chief curator of the Museum of Arts and Design, NY.

I'm incredibly happy that portions of my interview were included in this feature and that our 18kt gold, aquamarine and diamond pendant necklace made the cover of the magazine. The digital version of the magazine can be found here. The article begins on page 69.
