The Candy Shop Collection

We are SO THRILLED to finally be able to share The Candy Shop Collection with you, a ten piece collection of vintage inspired jewelry all made in the U.S.A. We’ve spent a lot of time researching a place to have jewelry made – the old school way, when things were made in America by talented artisans and manufacturers who valued quality over quantity.  So, last summer we partnered with a factory and model makers in New England to produce this launch collection of fun, whimsical pieces inspired by vintage styles we’ve collection and sold over they years.

Our Egyptian inspired jewelry can be worn as a set or separately, were inspired by 1970’s Egyptian revival jewelry and the over-the-top glamour of Elizabeth Taylor’s Cleopatra, reinterpreted with a bright, fun and modern color palate.

Each piece, from the dramatic statement earrings with custom resin stones to collar necklace and the oversize cocktail ring features the scarab beetle, traditionally worn by Egyptian Kings and Queens to symbolize their wealth and power. The scarab emerged as a classic design element in Egyptian inspired jewelry and is still considered a symbol of luck and good fortune.

The Kissing Scarab Pendant Earrings come in two colors, a bright rich pink and turquoise. The resin is beautiful and almost “glows” when worn because of its translucent quality.  Here’s a great shot of them from The Glitter Guide (photo by Olivia Ray James):

And of course, who can resist a colorful Scarab Cocktail Ring served up with a little Prosecco?

A Sweet First Birthday

While this is a little off the topic of jewelry, I thought I would share this amazing birthday cake we had at my daughter Daphne’s first birthday party this past weekend:

The cake was made by Charleston’s Mirabelle Bakery, and was inspired by this cake I found on Pinterest. Sprinkles on the outside and rainbow on the inside and a cute (now) one-year-old to boot. Who could ask for anything more?
