Beginner’s Luck

Beginner’s Luck

I wish when I started collecting fine jewelry someone would've given me advice on what to invest in first. Jewelry is one of those things that actually can be a sound investment compared to a lot of other material things in this world. 

 

But unlike real estate or stocks you can enjoy your investment while you own it. My jewelry collection gives me joy and security, which is the best of both worlds. 

 

 

The best advice I can give for starting out with your collection is to pick pieces that you truly love. The great part is that stones and metals can all be changed and re-set to make anything. Styles will change and everyone has different preferences but like fashion there are classics and that goes for jewelry too.

 

Pieces like thick and thin chains, diamond earrings, bangles, cocktail rings will always be classics. I started my collection with rings because I just love rings and I knew that would make me the happiest and would get the most use in my life. So my best advice to you is that, find what you love and start there.

The Natural Look

The Natural Look

One of my favorite parts about designing jewelry is working with natural materials. Throughout my many years of creating I’ve used tons of stones and materials that occur naturally in this amazing earth we are so lucky to be apart of.

  

 

 

I am drawn to the mystic qualities of these pieces. The color and texture is always so unique and perfect, that other man-made objects just can’t compare. I’ve shared with you our annual trips to my favorite gem show out west. It’s at these shows that I get inspired and basically become in awe of mother nature…again and again.

  

As I was looking through my collections the other day I wanted to showcase some of my favorite pieces that were inspired and created with mother nature’s help. I love sharing my favorites with you guys and I hope you feel the same. 

 

 

I would love to hear what you think and what is your favorite naturally occurring material or stone. Sending you lots of love and relaxing vibes as the summer is coming to end.

Chain Reaction

Chain Reaction

The past few seasons and even years, earrings have been getting all the love. Statement earrings are everywhere and I love that because I love a statement anything. But I wanted to take a moment to really focus on chains, not statement necklaces but chains alone.

 

  

There is so much that can be done with chains via layering. They have the ability to be creative and fun like stacking rings. There is so much possibility to let your style shine through. 

 

 

 

Layering chains in the summer feels so right, something about the simplicity in the different links and the movement. Summer is about flowing and not wearing pieces that are fixed and heavy. I have paired some of my favorite chains together here to give you an idea, but you really should experiment and use what you have.

 

 

A few things to remember…scale is important. Pick chains with varying sizes of links, it’s like mixing prints, you don’t want them to be the same.  Length of the chain is also key. You want there to be a difference in where the chains hit your chest. I would start with two chains but three is possible as well if they’re the right ones.

 

 

 

I hope this helps you mix up your summer style with ease and effortlessness.

Jewelry Clean Out

Jewelry Clean Out

I’m sure you have been feeling it but there is always a detox-vibe in the air come January. I love to take this time to not only clean out my bad habits but to clean out my physical closet. It feels so good when you release the stuff you no longer need. It makes room of new things to come into your live.

 

 

 

I love to follow Marie Kondo’s method. It’s a beautiful approach to learning to how to get rid of what you don’t need or love anymore. I have noticed how well this method works for me when I am dealing with my clothes, accessories and especially my jewelry.

 

 

The majority of my jewelry collection includes pieces I will keep forever but I am quite the hoarder of shiny things and can never say no to a cocktail ring or statement pendant, so you can imagine my collection needs a little detox once and a while. 

 

Follow these rules to hold your own jewelry clean out and be surrounded only by the things that you love:

 

 

      - Commit to letting go of what isn’t serving you

      - Imagine what your ideal style is

      - Finish discarding first, then tidy

      - Work by category, not location

      - Ask yourself if it sparks joy

       

       

      Good Luck! and till next week,

      Heating Up

      Heating Up

      As the months get hotter all we want to do is take off the layers and accessories. When I was younger I remember people always pairing down their jewelry and accessories during the summer, but I always thought that this was the perfect time to amp up my style game.

       

       

      I have always created collections with this idea in mind. The idea that jewelry, like clothing, can be seasonal. I think the mistake is wearing the same pieces you wear during the year, on vacation or at the beach. There has to be some changes made.

        

      These hotter months call for loose fitting jewelry, not so heavy. Not just in weight but in visual appearance as well. That is why you see lots of hoops, and bangles. The lightweight movement of these styles lends itself to the relaxed nature of summer.

       

       

      I have some favorites, pieces I always find myself reaching for during the summer months. These pieces here are truly the staples I can’t live without once the temperatures rise. I hope this helps you in heating up your unique style.

      the weddings begin

      the weddings begin

      Wedding season is upon us. Ring the bells and break out the dresses. No matter your age, it’s impossible not to get excited at the idea of a wedding. True love, beautiful floral agreements and lots of yummy food are a few good reasons.

      Around this time of the year I get a lot of questions about wedding jewelry. What to wear as a guest and also what to gift bridesmaids. I have done a blog about my favorite pieces for bridesmaids so this time around I’m going to talk about wedding guest jewelry.

      It’s important to feel our best while not going too over-the-top. I have the perfect combinations for classic yet statement making style. Check out the below pieces that will make sure to give you that understated glamorous feel.

      Trends That Never Die

      Trends That Never Die

      Fashion month is wrapping up and I love to watch and observe not just for motivation (because there's tons) but for style trends. Accessories are a huge part of any runway and every season I pay close attention to see what’s happening in the world around me.

       

      I can’t believe it, but for yet another season we're seeing the statement earring going strong. Of course there're some other jewelry trends happening but the trend that's refusing to die is the statement earring. There are some variations on this trend of course and I want to talk about that.

       

       

      I am really loving the mix-n-match trend. That’s using two different earrings to make one pair but with a cohesive element. There are a few ways to make this work if it sounds crazy to you.

       

       

      You have to find a common element, like metal, color or style. Something that’s really working lately is two different sizes, using the idea of disproportionate scale. Example, a stud with a longer chandelier earring. 

      Of course I've thought of a lot of cool ways to do this with my own pieces so check out the ideas I have put together for you here. These are my favorite combos. If you have created some of your own, let me know!

      True Love

      True Love

      This week with Valentine’s Day coming right around the corner I thought I would share a little about some of my favorite pieces that have stood by me through thick and thin. The true loves of my jewelry collection. 

               

       

      Lots of jewelry trends come and go but I count these pieces as those that stand the test of time and always make their way into my daily style season after season, year after year.

       

         

      I chose pieces from every category because I know how some people can’t live without a beautiful earring or a statement necklace. We all have a certain comfort level when it comes to our style. This of course is true of the clothes we wear but over the years I see it with the jewelry we invest in as well.

       

         

       

       

      I hope you take this as a source of inspiration for the style you have curate dover the years as well as a push to possibly try something new and add a twist to your already careful edited collection.

       

           

       

      Till Next Week,

      I put a lot of thought and energy into creating something that feels like the Stephanie Kantis brand but in a whole new light. This collection is so truly wearable for everyday which is exactly what I wanted to do.

       

          

      I also really wanted to give you lots of options of gold finishes so you can truly find the piece that speaks to you and your taste. I also made the collection easy to mix. I love to collect pieces and building upon my style and this is easy to do with the fine collection. 

       

       

      I wanted to share with you some of the pieces I’m loving right now and also pieces I believe are easy to gift. Let me know what you think and don’t forget to enjoy the little things in life.

      They're Here!

      They're Here!

      I always look forward to this time of year, because it feels like a brand new start. The Fall Collection unveiling gets me so excited because it’s time for some newness. Can’t you feel the energy?!

      I mentioned in a previous blog all about my inspiration for this collection, go back and read it HERE. But I didn’t get to show you the actual pieces. That’s what I’m going to do today.

       

      There are so many pieces and it truly is hard to pick, but for you I’m going to share my favorite pieces. I have put together a few little groups of my favorite earrings, rings, necklaces and bracelets to make it easy.

       

       

       

      This collection is truly one of the most wearable for mix and matching. All the pieces can layer well and some of my favorite combos are: big earrings + chunky bracelets (at least three) or layered necklaces (one close to the neck and one longer) + a big ring.

       

       

      Take a look and let me know your favorites, I am sure there will be more than one.

      Till Next Week,
