Scottish High Tea and Shamila ~ Fine Jewelry Trunkshow: Saturday Dec 17th, 2011

My friend Leslie is a gourmand extraordinaire. She also has discerning taste and an equally smart loft space to host my upcoming event this Saturday.  I heard that ancient tea recipes were consulted, fine Scottish lemon curd pastries were sourced and vintage tea sets will be pulled from their cases and of course I will be there with both my jewelry collections, Chimera and Lokum Luxe. We would appreciate an RSVP so as to brew the pots and pots of tasty teas for your drinking pleasure :-). Come by say hi, sip some tea and get some last minute jewels for your lovelies! {lovely gift wrap is included}

See you on Saturday!

8th Annual Fatto A Mano Show in Laurelhurst


Last Saturday, was the 8th annual Fatto A Mano Show {Italian, for hand-made}, or the FAM show as it is lovingly known by the designers and attendees who make it such a firecracker of an event. Each year the event exceeds the previous year's success and it is the venue to shop for locally made quality gifts in Seattle, year in and year out.Image For those of you who missed it - here is the line up of designers who showcased this year and since they are all Seattle based, you can still connect with them for all your last minute holiday gifts.

I had a few minutes to snap some images at the event; please view the slide show!




Preparing for a Mother's Day Trunk Show

I love my collaborations with Theo Chocolate. Not only do I love the company's philosophy and their darn-ly delicious chili and sea salt caramels - I have to say I am a big fan of co-founder Deb Music. Not only is she a general super woman both in business and otherwise, I am so happy to call her a dear friend. On May 7th, I will be showing a collection of decadent jewels that pair oh-so-finely with all the yummy chocolates that mom will want for sure. How nice to gift her with a little sparkly inedible keepsake too. So for Mom's day I will create some specially exquisite rose quartz in a honeycomb facet as well as layering necklaces with interesting pearls (I cannot keep the Keishi pearl necklaces in stock!) and an array of all sorts of delectable gems. I hope to see you there and bring Mom as well! Me thinks that the pairing of "Silky smooth caramel infused with the soothing essence of rose petals and enlivened with the sweet and peppery kick of fresh ginger" and "hand-cut rose quartz in a modern honeycomb facet accented with 14k gold ear-wires" makes a merry match for mama's inner Maharani!
