One of my nicknames growing up was "Mauer Power" and The Colleen Power Stack is my heart and soul. This set combines two pieces from my newest Black + White Collection (I wear the original samples, in fact). It's made up of the channel ring, line ring, a thin [...]
Courtenay is a designer, a dreamer, a cheerleader and a treehugger -- and we adore her #CMDSTYLE. This mama of two boys is also a boss lady, a third generation San Franciscan (a rare breed!) and a licensed architect. She loves clean squares, sharp lines, and mixed metals [...]
Mother's Day is just around the corner, and we're all about celebrating the fabulous, irreplaceable women in our lives. Mom can be a mother to tots, teens, or fur babies. She might be a grandmother, an aunt, a sister, a cousin, a dad who fills the [...]
We can’t thank you enough for all your support of CMD the past few weeks. We feel grateful we can keep doing what we do, even if that means that we work at a limited capacity during the quarantine. The SF Shop and NY Studio [...]
It’s funny that after all these years, I still get an excited nervousness right before I release a new collection. Even with plenty of avid CMD supporters by my side, there's still some anxiety and emotion that rises to the surface of it all. Over the years though, my confidence and design skills have definitely improved, and it’s taken a lot [...]
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.

Happy happy International Women’s Day. I’m so, so proud to be a female owned and operated small business! For those of you who don’t already know, I currently have an incredible all-women bi-coastal team and I don’t know what I’d do without them.
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.
Part of our main focuses for 2019 is a brand re-design with YOU, our customer, in mind. We want to better show the flavor that each person’s individual style brings to the brand and the jewelry. I’m so gosh darn excited to show you everything that we’ve been working on behind the scenes.
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.
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.
