Buddha Locket Necklace

For over a year, I hunted for a vintage Buddha locket for one of my best clients. And, I finally found one! YIPPEE! It was like finding the treasure chest at the end of the map after a long journey. The dimensionality and detail of this locket is amazing. I paired it with a sterling silver chain that is accented with vintage Swarovski grey crystal bead. She LOVES it!

Are looking for a sentimental piece or have a family heirloom or other jewel laying around that you want to wear again or give to someone special? I would love to custom design a piece for you. Please contact me if you are interested.

1900's 'DVA' Locket Necklace

I love finding vintage lockets with the original photos inside. This one dates back to the 1900's which makes these photographs over 100 years old. It is a gold-filled, circular locket that is beautifully etched with a moon and star stone inlay. On the back the initials 'DVA' are engraved. The necklace is a new 14k gold filled chain accented with vintage clear crystal beads. This 1900's 'DVA' Locket Necklace is on sale at

New York + Lime Green = Bittersweet

Evolution is IIDA's (International Interior Design Association) annual fundraising event. Every year, local interior design firms enter a design competition. This year each company was given a different color and city. My team was assigned New York + lime green. We had to create a collage within specific size parameters, only using black and white and the color we were given. We titled our piece "Bittersweet" which represents fashion in the big apple. I love challenging my creativity and am proud to say that we won 1st place.
