Inspiration!!  …and some perspiration ☺  That’s what the past few weeks have been all about as I’ve continued to develop my new line of jewelry as part of our virtual Master Class sponsored by B’sue Boutiques.

…recent worktable tableaux ♥

I’m always inspired by strong women of exceptional talent.  Case in point: Adele.  That woman can belt a tune like no one’s business and share a heart-rending message all at the same time.  I love this music video ~ shot at my fave location, Pont Alexandre in Paris.  The message is pretty fab, too:

Times they are a-changing.  Women today are not waiting for someone else to create our Happiness.  We know what we like… what is special to us… and we won’t wait around for someone to buy us the perfect diamond ring.  Hey… if that happens… Great!  Until then, we are embracing the opportunity to celebrate ourselves. I am taking a break & celebrating sunshine in February!!

…here I am taking a break & celebrating sunshine in February!!

…and who knows us better?  The jewelry we buy ourselves should reflect our personal special moments, special places, special people.

Purchased ourselves.  To celebrate us ♥

That’s what Touchstones & Treasured Tokens are all about.  A celebration of all that is You!  What moves you, inspires you, expresses your authentic self.

Inspired by strong, self-assured, fashion-forward women throughout history… women who knew that jewelry is an outward expression of our identity.  It’s powerful.. a Talisman… a bit of armor with the magic to disarm.

Epiphany! …and Sparkle (of course).

I’m one of those people who never looks back.  Truly! Most days I can’t even remember the day before! That’s why we have pictures and husbands, right?

So when it was suggested that I share pictures of my previous work, a moment of anxiety washed over me.  Just what had I created?

Epiphany! My body of work does speak to classic, timeless elegance with a vintage flair.  Yes, like a magpie I’ve always been drawn to Sparkle ♥ …and pieces created 6-years ago when I started this venture are as wearable today as the day created.  Affordable jewelry that can be worn for a lifetime ~ not discarded like last year’s worn trends.

So without further ado, here is a brief retrospective in (approximate) chronological order.  …’cause I don’t really remember, right?!?

Cheers & Happy Friday ♥

…in the beginning


I’m a modern day romantic ~ hopelessly in love with the style, grace and elegance of the early 20th century. As a working woman, I found myself searching for well-crafted jewelry that spoke to my heart.

Then I went to Paris, and found my style and heart-home. Stylish women of all ages embracing classic lines with continental panache and that je ne sais quoi (certain something). It’s that legacy of timeless style and chic, sophisticated elegance that I bring to my designs.

I’m a one-woman show… designing, creating, photographing, packaging, shipping, customer service – you name it! It’s my labor of love.

My passion for quality means I scour estate sales and develop relationships with established estate sellers to find the best possible crystals and jewelry components for you. The modern pieces I find that fit my design aesthetic are usually USA-made metals and are the highest quality.

It has been my honor to create jewelry for thousands of stylish women, including red carpet appearances by established Hollywood icons, and young starlets (your secret is safe with me… I’ll never tell that you’re wearing rhinestones!). I’ve designed for Presidential Inaugural Balls, Cabaret & Theatre productions, and hundreds of brides, bridal parties, and fashionistas around the world.

Jewelry is an outward expression of our individuality.

Have you ever gone looking for that perfect jewelry accessory that spoke to your soul?  That one piece that in a single glance said “That’s Me!”?

I know I have ~ for myself and as treasured gifts.

With the start of a new year, I’m delighted to create a new line of jewelry expressly designed to celebrate our individuality.

Partnering with respected jewelry artists around the  world & sponsored by creative mentor and trusted supplier, Brenda Sue Lansdowne of B’Sue Boutiques, I look forward to sharing this new line with you over the next several months.

Stay Tuned & Happy New Year!
