Hi everyone – I just wanted to post some fabulous new pictures of my jewelry. The pictures were taken by my friend Darby Elizabeth, of Darby Elizabeth Photography! She was the photographer at my wedding and is a fantastic photographer here in Arizona. Check out her website at www.darbyelizabethphotography.com!

So most of you know that I do wedding jewelry and  a little bit of fashion jewelry – but I also do specialty jewelry! In 2007 I started making jewelry for a store in Scottsdale called CUPCAKES. Yes you read it right, CUPCAKES.

The owners, Lindsey and Stephanie Esparza, are friends of mine from college and wanted some cute, cupcake themed jewelry to sell in their store – and I happily obliged!

The sisters opened the adorable, upsacle cupcake boutique in the Spring of 2007. My jewelry appeared a few months later. From little bracelets with cupcake charms, to big, bold necklaces with cupcake adorned bottle caps, this jewelry is unlike anything I have done before!

If you live in Scottsdale, I am sure you have heard of the store and most likely tasted these delicious CUPCAKES. If you have not had the pleasure of eating one of these scrumptious Mini Cakes, you are seriously missing out!! With flavors of the day and standard flavors throughout the week, these are definitely something to crave. My favorite, although simple and to the point, is the BLONDIE. A delicate vanilla cupcake with rich vanilla frosting, the girls always know what I am going to get!

So be sure to stop by the store and indulge your sweet tooth, and maybe do a little shopping as well!!! These CUPCAKES are so popular, they usually sell out before the day is over, so make sure you get in there early.

The store is located in the Hilton Village, on the NE corner of Scottsdale and McDonald.

Check them out at www.GotCupCakes.com or give them a ring at 480.656.3816.

So back in the Winter of 2003 I got my jewelry into my FIRST ever boutique – URBAN ANGELS. It was a huge adventure for me. I had no clue what I was doing, but I now believe that getting into Urban Angels was a HUGE turning point for my business!! 

It is now owned by a different owner, Karli Jacobson, a young and vibrant women who happens to be my sorority sister. She has since moved the location of the boutique to the new Tempe Market Place, and business has been booming for her ever since.

Carrying a wide variety of labels and designers, she is able to cater to the college student and stay at home mom alike! She even carries great fashions for the HIP man in your life. From William Rast and Juicy Couture to Hale Bob and Yours Truly, you really can find the perfect ensemble for your next occasion.

 

 

 

 

 

I just wanted to give a big thanks to Karli for supporting me over the years, as well as other local designers here in Arizona!!

Be sure to check out her store in the Tempe Market Place and visit her online at www.shopurbanangels.com.

 

So I was looking back through my photo albums of all of the weddings I have made jewelry for and I thought I would post a few pictures!

This is a picture from one of the very first weddings I ever made jewelry for, my best friend Courtney Gubernick. This is her good friend Taylor wearing a pair of 3 stone drop earrings, made of Swarovski Crystals.

 

Ashley's Wedding 2005

Ashley's Wedding 2005

This was a girlfriend of mine from college, Ashley. I had never made a necklace this big, but it turned out amazing. 4 strands of pearls and Swarovski crystals. I also made her Mom’s jewelry and all the earrings for the bridesmaids. They were so wonderful to work with.

 

My Wedding 2006

My Wedding 2006

This is a picture of one of MY bridesmaids, Carla. She is wearing one of my most popular earrings, the cluster drop.

 

Keri's Wedding 2007

Keri's Wedding 2007

This is Keri Chantler, one of the co-owners of Twirl in Scottsdale and soon to be in Chandler. I don’t make a ton of bracelet’s but these have to be some of my favorite. Keri did 3 different bracelet strands, all in gold with White Shell and Mother of Pearl. She got married on a cliff over looking the ocean in Laguna Beach and she new she wanted something with a beachy feel to it, and I think we got it just right!
