Locale of Inspiration – Peru

Sitting in my backyard one sunny Sunday afternoon, my friend Lauren and I began talking about our upcoming birthdays.  While I firmly believe that every birthday is important and worthy of celebration, we were on the verge of a big one-one, one that started a new decade. “What should we do to mark the moment?” […]

Source of Inspiration – Blue Lace Agate

Sometimes inspiration comes from a destination, thinking about a romantic, faraway place, and sometimes it comes from a fascinating gemstone that just speaks to you. That’s just what happened when I found a beautiful piece of Blue Lace Agate.  I was captivated by the light banding that flowed through it, the watery shapes that were […]

The Birth of a Lapis Ring

I thought wearing a piece that I designed was surreal, that is until I saw one being made. On each trip overseas, we try to visit at least one of our manufacturer’s workshops or factories.  On this trip to Bangkok we were able to spend a day with a supplier that we have worked with […]

While I have my signature L to sign a note with, a few of my friends can be relied upon to use another symbol of love, signing with xoxo.  It always feels like a warm and intimate expression to me.  I began to wonder about expressing that sentiment in jewelry. Playing with gemstones and shapes […]

Fall Fashion Trends

It’s that time of year again: the leaves are changing colors, the air is a little bit cooler, and everything comes in pumpkin spice flavor.  Fall is my favorite season because it represents new beginnings, whether it’s a new school year or just a new lineup of fall television shows. In the fashion world, fall […]

Cotton Candy, Begonia, and Rose Quartz

The best fashion seasons are when what you’ve always loved becomes what’s in vogue. While watching the fall runway shows and thumbing through my favorite fashion mags, I was tickled to see the amount of pink being shown.  Often derided as too young or too girlie of a color, soft ballerina pink seems to finally […]

Lisa Bridge Collection Photo Shoot

It was a total pinch-me-moment last week as we photographed lifestyle shots of the Lisa Bridge Collection.  By a pinch-me-moment, I mean that a couple of times I literally reached over to my brother, (and VP of Marketing) Marc, and grabbed his arm.  Seeing jewelry that I had sketched on a piece of paper come […]

Phenomenal Moonstone

Allow me to geek out for a moment.  I love that moonstone is a “phenomenal gem” and I mean that in both the technical and the descriptive sense.  Moonstone seems to almost glow with an effect called adularescence (how’s that for a word?!).  As moonstone moves, light rolls across the stone in an ethereal way. […]
