When I first started CMD, I remember never wanting to own an actual brick and mortar as I thought it would be too much of a commitment. But then, this place just literally fell into my lap.
To be honest, owning this space definitely has its ups and downs… keeping it maintained, cleaned, stocked and staffed has been a gigantic challenge. But as we’re settling into 2019, I’ve been reflecting on how there’s nothing more amazing than having a place to go to everyday, design, run the biz, sell and work alongside some really incredible women. I also love being a part of the Mission community… I’ve run my business here since 2005.
If you haven’t been into the Showroom, I’d love to invite you to swing by and join me here. It’s my home away from home. You can check out our creative space (brimming with tools and sketches) and try on any of our beautifully finished pieces. We even have a Ring Bar where you can build customized stacks. We’re constantly inspired (and impressed!) with the combinations we see created and we want to see yours! From mixed metals to unique shapes, it’s delightful to watch new combos come to life.

People want simple pieces that they could wear every day. They don’t have to think about what outfit it goes with… it just works. It's a piece that becomes an essential part of their wardrobe, and a signature part of their unique style. Personally, I like to make a subtle statement in all that I do.
