Gift Idea: Tiffany's 1837 Bar Pendant

Give the gift of Tiffany and Co. with this adorable, simple bauble. The Tiffany 1837 Bar Pendant is perfect for wearing alone or layering with other necklaces. Delicate and classic, it would be a wonderful addition for under the Christmas tree! I am lucky enough to have this gem and I absolutely adore it.

Special thank you to Tiffany and Co.!

Bevel Designer: Liz Bloom

Bevel has many talented designers but the force behind Dorus Mhor jewelry is the talented Liz Bloom. Her jewelry is inspired by metal sculptures and textiles. She handcrafts each piece with selected fabrics around the world. Each season involves using the Liberty of London Art Fabric collection which back in the 1890's were the best 'avant garde' textile designs.

Liz Bloom is a Scottish born designer who grew up with one grandfather a silversmith and the other an expert in weaving. Her mother was a dressmaker who taught Liz at an early age. Later on, she graduated with a Fine Art degree in sculpture.

Upon a six month sabbatical, Liz met a button maker and her vision began. From buttons to bead making, Liz incorporated fine, delicate fabrics and hence her line was born. She has had great success in London with fans like Florence Welch. Now in Chicago, Liz works out of her studio creating gems for us all to adore.

The name Dorus Mhor is a tribute to her childhood home meaning "great open doors". Right now, you can sign up for the Bevel waitlist - the higher you are on the list, the earlier access you get to the shows!

Introducing BEVEL

Bevel Trunk Shows announces the launch of their jewelry e-commerce website (, bringing the designer trunk show concept to an online platform.  An idea that has existed locally offline since the beginning of commerce, but never on the web, Bevel provides users with an unique first look at new collections from independent designers. I am proud to be affiliated with this unique company! Their designs are totally fun and original! Here are a few sneak peeks.

How it works: Each designer creates a sample collection consisting of 10 exclusive designs and 200 pieces to be shown on Bevel for 7 days. At the end of the 7 days, designers hand make product, ship to Bevel and Bevel ships to end customer. Free returns, free shipping. Launching the week of November 28th, sign up for the wait list here to gain your access!

FishTail Braids

Lately, I have been loving a good fishtail braid. They are actually really easy to create and a beautiful way to wear your hair on a day you don't feel like drying it! Here are the steps to create one yourself:

1. Divide your hair into two large sections, parting straight down the middle. For a sharper look, you can use a comb to part your hair evenly.

2. Pull a thin strand of hair from the outside of the left section. Pull it over the top of the left section, and grasp it under the right section. Basically, the strand of hair has gone over the left section and finishes under the right section.

3. Repeat Step 2 on the other side. Pull a skinny strand of hair from the outside of the right section, pull it over the right section, then weave it under the left section.

4. Keep alternating sides, weaving over and under, until you reach the bottom of the braid.

5. Tie off the end with a hair bobble or elastic.
