    Jewelry Inspired

    A big thank you to Jennifer Heebner from the jewelry trade publication JCK for including me in her post about jewelry inspired by customers. I’ve told the story of “Mud Flap Jill” on the blog before, but that was a long time ago, so click on the photo of the wimmins with the ruby nipples to read the JCK version!


    Click here (and scroll down) to see the 18K gold necklace version on Rihanna. Click here to shop. And here is the giant version of Mud Flap Jill that I recently made for another customer.

    As you can see, we skipped the ruby nips but added a diamond choker.

    RuPaul Rules

    I’ve been a fan of RuPaul — Nicki Minaj’s real inspiration — since “Supermodel” in 1993. I mean, a song that shouts out my beloved Linda Evangelista? After that, when RuPaul told me, “You better work,” I got to work, dammit.


    I was happy that after eight seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race, RuPaul won his first Emmy for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program statuette. And he won it in style. As Deadline Hollywood reported:

    “Earlier this year I was quoted saying I’d rather have an enema than an Emmy,
    [RuPaul] said while accepting the trophy. “But thanks to the Television Academy, I can have both!”

    Jewelry for the Warrior Woman

    Gorgeous jewelry blogger Becky Stone has wonderful timing with her story about “the Warrior Woman” in InDesign Jewelry‘s fall edition. As Becky writes, “The Warrior Woman is a power player and she knows it.”

    This is my obviously my type of lady: Most of my jewelry designs are inspired by female badasses. Becky selected several pieces of jewelry for her Warrior Woman, including my Empress Matilda sword necklace.

    Click for Becky’s original tweet.
    I adore her introduction to the Matilda:

    “The Warrior Woman is never without her weapons: her wit, her mind, her heart. But given the chance to make things more literal without sacrificing elegance, she can’t resist.”

    I wrote a detailed post about the Matilda necklace and matching sword earrings in June.

    Marie Puce new spring collection

    Amsterdam is in full spring bloom! The city fields and roadsides are sprinkled with daffodils and flower stands are overflowing with tulips. Our house is all of a sudden so bright and colourful, with loads of that beautiful crisp, early-year sunshine beaming in and tons of little vases and baskets with flowers scattered about. I love this time of year!

    With Easter only a couple of weeks away, we just set up our traditional Easter tree. Normally I get some branches of pussy willow for this purpose, but this year we used the cuttings of our neighbour’s cherry tree that he kindly gave to us. They are blossoming so beautifully!

    Even Nonrebels Will Want to Go Punk

    Life is tough when you’re incapable of ordering swimwear online because you don’t know how it’s going to fit or look - and, well, we get you. With a million-and-one options out there, it feels close to impossible to choose. Not that we ever choose just one (or two, if we’re being honest), but still, being presented with a ‘swim’ page featuring 700+ options can feel overwhelming to say the least.

    But from curvier frames to athletic body types, we're helping to make sense of the endless swimwear options and narrowing them down to the style categories that were made to fit and flatter every frame.

    The classic 50s pin-up bikini is almost as famous as the women who wore them - and for good reason too.

    Best for those: who are
