I had the JOY of providing jewelry for Jennifer Bates' big day! She's the first bride to sport Merrick jewelry down the aisle. To your dismay I actually wore a strand of pearls from my mom (I hadn't really developed my business yet) but if I could go back and adorn myself... watch out! Please check out the stunning couple with my marvelous mother (wearing Merrick jewelry also). So special.

After all the times I've wondered if you can wear brown shoes with a black purse or if it really matters to wear white after Labor Day (who decided that anyway?), Iris Apfel puts me to shame. Iris, the visionary of Old World Weavers, in her own words possessed the gift for wearing "everything under the kitchen sink" and is truly iconic! She is an inspiration for us to be free from fashion rules and live within our own skin and style. So WHO CARES, wear what you want. Be daring in your choices and have fun with it. "In the right tonality I never met a color I didn't like." "What the hell. If they don't fit, I'll make pillows." "Controlled Baroque, that's me." -Iris Apfel "Either be a work of art or wear a work of art." - Oscar Wilde
