How To Build A Stack

Each and every morning, I stack up on both hands, donning at least six of my ten fingers in my CMD rings. I like to think of it as my daily armor, helping me to walk through the world feeling fierce and confident. There are MANY ways to stack, but let me share three tried and true methods for building a killer set [...]

Gemini Stack Ring Set on Male Model

Hello Gemini, My Old Friend

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, [...]

Miglia, The Community Builder & CMD Team Mascot

Miglia, The Community Builder

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 [...]

On Sensory Overload

On Sensory Overload

I’ve been thinking a lot about spring and the sensations we’re all experiencing with the waking of the season. Everything is fully engaged in the world’s re-ignition, including the singing birds and new buds of a complicated vine. Every living and breathing being is enjoying these sensations, and it’s a beautiful thing [...]

How an Idea Becomes a Finished Design

How an Idea Becomes a Finished Design

For me, one of the most important aspects of design is iteration, iteration, iteration. Ideas for new pieces often come to me when I least expect it: while walking on the beach, taking a shower, during a meditation session or while driving. Ideas tend to arrive at rather inconvenient [...]

Strength in (Small) Numbers

Strength in (Small) Numbers

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. [...]

Signed, A Recovering Perfectionist

Signed, A Recovering Perfectionist

My mom always says that even as a little tot, I was a perfectionist. I've always been deliberate and intentional – I took my time. When I finally did start walking at 16 months, I cruised clear across the room like I owned the place. As a kid, my space was always neat and organized [...]

Dive Right In: On Setting Achievable Goals

Dive Right In: On Setting Achievable Goals

If you know me well on a personal level, you’d know that I’m the type of person who likes to “make things happen.” If I’m honest, it’s one of my strongest personality traits and a bit the Aries in me. With that, I’m also a self-proclaimed procrastinator and things often take me longer [...]

Spread the Love this Valentine's Day

I had the idea for this limited edition 'Spread the Love' necklace during a recent product development meeting with Sam. In all the years I’ve been designing jewelry, I’ve never been compelled to design a heart shaped anything. I do love drawing hearts and if you've ever received [...]

I love Dawn

I love Dawn

When I meet with customers, one question that I consistently get asked is, “Colleen, how do you suggest I clean my jewelry?” I have so many answers to this question but my go-to solution for a quick shine-up for any of my jewelry is to grab the good ole Dawn Dish Soap. You can find this amazing solution at any major [...]
