A darling designer from Texas, Nunu created these luscious semi-precious cluster earrings. They are just the right amount of festive for your lobes!

These are 3 of my newest designs. I am getting into doming and nesting right now. Also, the mossy green rutilated quartz earrings have 18k gold tendrils which move slightly when you wear them. They are my favorite new thing at the moment!

Vanessa Hirschowitz

Lucky for us Vanessa lives in Chicago and presented her jewelry to us with open arms- she gave us a beautiful collection of completely hand forged 22k gold and fine silver goods- each piece one of a kind. We love her creative designs as do our customers who know what fine jewelry really is.

Jeanine Payer

I have been a fan and collector of Jeanine's work for several years and am excited to be showing it in the store this season. She really does hand engrave each piece- when I hold 2 of her bracelets with the same quote/size of metal, there is a slight difference in each of the handwriting. At this point in her successful career, it would be so easy for her to cast the pieces and mass-produce them, but she holds true to her original premise and realization of the integrity in her designs.
