CMD is all about the mixed metals, shapes and...finishes! Today I wanted to show you the difference between signature MATTE and SHINY finishes on our jewelry.
The cuff on the left has a SHINY, high polish finish. If you look really closely, you can even see my reflection in the bracelet. This gives a "blingier" look than our matte finish. To create it, we use a heavy duty polishing wheel in the production studio.
The cuff on the right is what we call our MATTE finish. Matte is a non-reflective and more satin-like finish. To create this look, our production team will tumble the cuff in a ceramic medium for a half an hour.
Did you know that you can choose your preferred finish on any of our sterling silver or solid 14k gold pieces? So you can maintain this look at home, we now offer Shiny and Matte Finishing Cloths for purchase online!

By now, you may have noticed CMD's trend towards smaller, more frequent product launches. As a designer, I love the challenge of being creatively disciplined. Part of this practice involves writing in my journal and drawing in my sketchbook daily. The joy and fulfillment that [...]
