Densa Ring Debut

Densa Ring Debut

September 11, 2014

My family comes in many sizes and shapes, many colors and languages. In fact, it’s not one family at all. From my large Irish family that I grew up with on the East Coast to my small, unconventional friends-turned-family here in the West, family simply means love.

As I close my eyes and think of the word “home,” I have a vivid image of the beach.  Growing up on the Jersey Shore meant sand was between my toes on a regular basis.  Salty air, crashing waves, screeching seagulls…these memories instantly conjure feelings of happiness, peacefulness and family.

Our delicate chains are a modernized take on the classic tennis bracelet – distinguished, practical and eye catching. What more could a bauble-loving lady ask for? We love seeing them paired with printed tunics, solid tees, flowing skirts or an LBD.

My love of craftsmanship spans far wider than design, especially in the form of food and drink. Artisan coffee, farm-to-table fare, distinctive wines, delicately prepared sushi; I revel in a well-made provisions. But number one on my decadent bite list is definitely oysters.

Shall We Head to The Upper Side?

January 21, 2013

You may have heard me mention the versatility of having stacks of rings; one of the many perks is wearing them individually. For the first time, CMD is selling individual rings on our website. I am loving this whole new take on the stackable ring experience. It’s a rather sexy statement, wouldn’t you say?

I wear stackable rings, in one way or another, Every. Single. Day. Their unique square shape juxtaposed with the mixed metals makes me feel feminine (despite chipped nail polish!) whenever I arrange them across my fingers. Please note they have rounded edges – handmade with wearability in mind!

My Swelling Heart

November 15, 2012

I remember my first experience seeing someone wear CMD jewelry in public. While at Rainbow Grocery in line to checkout, I looked up from my cart of deliciousness to see a woman in front of me wearing my hammered oval hoops. Unbeknownst to her I stood feet away, my heart swelled with pride.

Oxidize It!

Oxidize It!

November 07, 2012
