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 or give them a ring at 480.656.3816.

So this is my first BLOG featuring weddings that I have had the pleasure of making jewelry for. I LOVE what I do and getting to make custom jewelry for brides and bridesmaids is the best. I LOVE the fact that I get to make something just for them, that they wouldn’t be able to get any where else.

My first featured bride is CHRISTY JOHNSON (COLE).

As you will soon see, a beautiful bride, and just as beautiful on the inside! She was a a joy to work with – kind, easygoing, just an all around pleasure.

Christy wanted to do traditional pearl necklaces for her bridesmaids. As most of you know, my designs are not very traditional, but I liked the challenge of stepping out of the “BOX”.

And I think the end result was great!

She had an idea for a bracelet, two strands of pearls with long strands that dangled at the clasp. So we collaborated and came up with this one of a kind bracelet!

Working with Christy was a great experience. So kind and easy going, it makes me LOVE my job even more. Congrats Christy and I wish you all the best in Married life with Josh. Thanks for letting me be a part of your special day.

So this morning I woke up to find a glowing review of me and my jewelry on another BLOG. Well, it is not just any BLOG, but that of  my friends over at Bright Event Gallery – the BEST event planning place in the Valley!! It is funny how such a simple thing can totally turn your day around, THANKS GIRLS!! Be sure to check out the BOLG –, and their lovely store at


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
