My family sure knows how to throw a party! My sister-in-law’s wedding kicked off 2018 with a jubilant January evening. The event commenced with a surprise gospel choir serenading the reception with Pharrell’s “Happy” and nobody stopped dancing or smiling for the rest of the night. Karli and Sean are two of the most joyful people and every guest in the room could feel their happiness radiate.
I can’t stop gushing over Brittni and Brian’s wedding pictures. Anybody can agree they’re a model couple and Brittni is a striking beauty. The day is especially beautiful to me, seeing a vision come to fruition. Brittni and I started working together about a year and a half ago to re-purpose a marquise heirloom diamond from her mother into a necklace. She wasn’t engaged at the time, but my heart melted when she told me she envisioned wearing it on her wedding day. It has been an ongoing pleasure helping her add to her collection with a marquise diamond wedding band and diamond cluster earrings to polish off her look. I love how each piece complements one another but is worthy on its own. Her sleek silk dress has the same attitude of simplicity and delicateness shining above and beyond to absolutely stun. It’s impossible to choose, but one of my favorite pics of the day is of her sister, Dayna, putting on her necklace as she was involved in the necklace design and helped Brittni try it on for the first time. Thank you, Brittni, for letting me be an intimate detail in your celebration.
It doesn’t get more chic than pink opals and this beautiful couple at the Parker!
It was a pleasure working with such a considerate groom, Kevin, on surprise earrings for his gorgeous bride, Lauren. We worked together and pulled off the perfect creation that makes a statement but also reflects Lauren’s easy-going charm. The dangle portion of the earrings is convertible – it can be removed so the top can be worn alone as studs. Lauren brilliantly wore them asymmetrically, which complemented her swooping glamorous locks.
I strive to make each of my pieces versatile, able to adapt to various personalities, ensembles and occasions and it’s special to see this come to fruition. Kevin, thanks again for working with me, Lauren is a stunning model and bride!
We loved being included in our dear friends Paul and Kiri’s tasteful urban affair at Seattle’s Sodo Park. Curran was a groomsman and college friend to Paul, so it was extra special to witness Kiri stun in my rainbow moonstone and diamond earrings as she walked down the aisle. Kiri exudes beauty and warmth with her wholehearted smile, pairing elegantly with rainbow moonstone’s glow. Adularescence, the phenomenon of a blue flash as light hits the gem, is reminiscent of the sheen of the moon. Thus, rainbow moonstone is said to bring reflection and harmony. We wish Kiri and Paul a harmonious union, we love you guys to the moon!

I love being a little part of big love and chosen for life’s best moments. High school sweethearts Vivian and Keaton’s wedding in secluded Cle Elum was dreamy in every detail. Vivian dazzled in rainbow moonstone and diamond rose gold earrings. I love the way they complimented the intricate beading on her gown’s bodice and how they glowed in the flowering meadow. Statement earrings, especially with her elegant swept back hair, are sensational and glamorous – just as every bride should feel.
Cheers Vivian and Keaton, to a lifetime of love!
The moment Cammie came into view to walk down the aisle at Crystal Mountain, the sweeping views of the Cascades and dramatic cloud formations engulfing the area paled in comparison to the main attraction. Accompanied by a gorgeous Battenburg lace Rue de Seine gown from The Dress Theory and ivory fur, her earrings – not an ordinary ‘something blue’ – also popped. Intense aqua larimar found only in the Dominican Republic, rainbow moonstone, diamonds and yellow gold were the perfect complement to Cammie’s relaxed and radiant beauty.

Two gorgeous brides, Amanda and Mia, both selected rainbow moonstone with variegated diamond earrings for their mountain fêtes this summer (Amanda also added the pear + oval diamond with beaded halo necklace). These delicate dazzlers in rose gold suited Amanda’s romantic and soft palatte and Mia’s chic white. Rainbow moonstone is a classic bridal gemstone being translucent white with pretty iridescence. This flash is what makes the gem (in the feldspar family along with labradorite) so captivating – which is exactly how I’d describe Amanda and Mia. Cheers to the happy couples!

I’m kicking off wedding season by reminiscing to a year ago at Red Cliff Ranch in Park City. One of my closest friends, Shannon, stunned in her mom’s wedding dress and my jewelry. The surrounding red cliffs made for a dramatic ceremony location only to be preceded by a feast in Ralph Lauren-esque horse stables. Every detail – from the Mexican serape blankets covering hay bale seating to the bride’s Mexican geode and peach moonstone earrings – was the perfect balance of effortlessly cool and natural glamour. I look forward to celebrating the love of many more dear friends this season and feel honored to have my jewels selected by more beautiful brides. Happy anniversary Shannon and Will!
