At the start of 2023, I made a pact with myself to find a better way to unplug this year. Not just for me, but for the whole CMD team. Being such a small company and team (there’s only five of us!), one person being out can add pressure to the already heavy workload. I'll be [...]
The Sun was in Aries when I was born, but Gemini was rising – and this sign is one that is so near and dear to my heart. I love Gemini energy, and am surrounded by it. Many of my dearest friends are Gemini's, and without intentionally hiring based on astrological makeup (I would never, ha!), there’s also an impressive number [...]
Miglia and I are sort of attached at the hip. Nine out of ten times you see me walking down the street, Miglia will be with me. I bring her everywhere – she comes with me to work, she runs errands with me, we eat our meals together, she goes to the beach with me…she’s with me all the [...]
I’ve been in business for 17+ years and I absolutely love talking shop, especially with other small business owners. I have lots of my own ideas and sometimes (strong) opinions about things I’ve learned along the way. It’s always so interesting and thrilling to hear other people’s perspectives, too. [...]
International Women’s Day is Tuesday, March 8th and I’m so proud to be a female owned and operated small business. We're a group of six women working independently yet cohesively from four states. Together, we continue to forge ahead with shared values, creativity [...]
When you find the right people and let them do their thing, the results are truly astounding. We’re a small team, so every skill set goes a long way, and we’re grateful for the creativity, curiosity, and strong work ethic that keeps us so tied together. CMD is proud to be woman-owned and operated – from design to delivery, we do it all [...]
Our Product Development & Production Guru, Sam joined the CMD Team over three and a half years ago. She came onboard with no jewelry production experience, but you'd never know it. She's one of the hardest workers and quickest learners I know, and she quickly [...]
Because we’re a small crew, we often need more help at shows, events, and even in the Showroom during those particularly busy times of the year. Our CMD Street Team is a handful of individuals who work with us periodically on these [...]
This will be my 13th time showing at NY NOW, and that always gets me thinking about who we are and what we do here at CMD. We're a team of strong, bi-coastal, women. We're kind of a super team: from design to delivery, we do it all here at CMD.
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.
I want to challenge the way you think about the value in shopping small. Remember how important it is to shop in stores and support our local communities and neighbors. As we continue to see small spaces closing, I encourage you to consider the part you play in contributing to what makes your neighborhood vibrant.
I was born and raised in New Jersey and I do miss the dazzling changes that happen during the fall foliage season. And really, who doesn’t love some good sweater weather? It’s a time to be cozy and warm, yet stylish, and this time of year I find myself drawn more and more to longer layered mixed metal pieces.
