Effortless. Elegant. Everyday.

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.

In My White T

April 08, 2019

I love layering long sweaters or button ups with a cuffed sleeve... pair that with a sleek pair of denim or some nicely fitted black slacks and voila! A look that never gets old. And for jewelry... throw on a long necklace over the tee for just a pop of drama.

Happy Valentine’s Day

February 14, 2019

Valentine’s Day is a bit of a Hallmark Holiday, but I don’t think it has to be. I think it’s just a great day as any to show up and express your love – for the people you care for and for yourself. Whether you’re married, in a relationship or single, love and self-love should always come first.

All about the layers

All about the layers

October 25, 2018

Layering jewelry is my favorite way to put my favorite baubles and sparkly things on display and shake things up. Stacking isn’t just for rings, either. You can create your perfect arm or ear stack, or a cascading necklace effect. The trick is getting the right pieces in place.

How I Got Here

How I Got Here

September 10, 2018

It took years of trial and error, but I stuck with it and always believed that if I worked hard, I could make anything happen. Starting a business takes at 26 take a lot of courage and perseverance, but I knew that living my life as a creative is what I was put on this planet to do.

Stack Until You Can't Bend

July 24, 2018

Now, every person is different, and that’s a wonderful thing. Some prefer dainty. However, I prefer stacks. This is why you can find so many stack ring options at CMD. We even have a ring bar at the showroom, where you can create your own stack and really express your own sense of style.

Go FORTH… Expansion!

Go FORTH… Expansion!

July 10, 2018

Sometimes, you don’t realize where the gaps are until you see what people gravitate towards and what seems to be almost lacking in a collection. This gives me a really good sense of where to start, and what pieces I should be focusing on. A great coach of mine advises me to “listen to what they want; give them what they need.”

This Creative Life

July 06, 2018

I often get asked what my favorite part of being a designer is. For me, it’s surely the creative design process – the part where I sit down, put pen to paper, and sketch and sketch and sketch. When I’m in the studio by myself, there’s something about the quiet that allows my brain to flick on… well, on a good day anyway.

Can I mix circles and squares?

Can I mix circles and squares?

May 16, 2018

Lots of my customers mix shapes and sizes when they’re at the ring bar, and it totally works for them. Your jewelry style and pairings should be an extension of your own style. If you’re a person who mixes patterns and accessories, don’t stop to think twice. This is part of the fun of creating your own stack!

Ode to My Mom

Ode to My Mom

May 01, 2018

My mom is one of the most amazing people in my life. Living 3000 miles apart isn’t always easy, but we manage by getting on the phone together nearly every day.  My mom is a woman I have always admired – she raised me, my brother and sister on her own while working as an elementary school teacher.
