My Happy Place

My Happy Place

For the past three years I have been spending my birthday weekend in Sedona, Arizona, it’s become my happy place. There are so many reasons I feel so connected to this place, you will see in the pictures below, but it’s the nature and energy that top the list.

This year we stayed at the Enchantment Resort and visited the Mi Amo Spa. I felt so relaxed and peaceful, I couldn’t have had a better birthday. As the years pass, I find that spending time alone with my husband feels right instead of a huge party.

   

Most of my design inspiration comes from nature and travel, and for a while now Sedona has been the source of that. The colors, the textures, the composition of the land, everything sparks my creative spirit.

 

Ok, enough of my rambling, check out the images I took from my last trip and enjoy the beauty that has become my home away from home.

Welcome to the Gem Show

Welcome to the Gem Show

One of my favorite trips I take during the year is by far the annual gem show in Tucson, Arizona. It feels like the city is transformed into the biggest treasure hunt in the world. Everyone in the industry comes together to find the most exciting natural resources this planet has to offer.

You can see the jewelry trends happening a year before the pieces are even created. For me seeing all the raw unaltered stones sparks my creativity in very special ways. It’s at this show every year that I get some of my best ideas.

As Spring 2017 is here I thought I would tell you a little about the stones. Each one was picked for a special reason and it’s unique look. This collection wouldn’t have been possible without the following:

Blue Turquoise Howlite

 

This stone is used in the Pathway earrings. I love the roughness of this stone and how beautifully it balances out the luxe gold and modern design.

Rose Quartz

 

Finding the perfect color of Rose Quartz can be hard but the selection at the gem show always surprises me. I found the most perfect hue and you can see it represented in the Enlightenment earrings.

White Howlite

 

When I knew my inspiration for this collection, I knew I had to find the most exquisite White Howlite to represent the water elements of the Asian Fusion. I think I found it.

 

Bridge Ring

 

Red Sponge Coral

 

The Bonsai necklace is one of my favorites this season because it is showcases some of the most unique jewels I found at last year’s gem show. Just look at it!
