shop-it-to-me | birchbox

i recently read this inc article about beauty company birchbox. basically they hand select beauty samples of high-end products and ship them to your doorstep beautifully packaged every month. it's the perfect way to try expensive products before committing to the hefty price tag. they've got everything from nars, to stila and salvatore ferragamo. a membership to birch box is the perfect christmas gift for a beauty or product junkie on your list. check out their site here.

just finished the holiday gift guide—so happy it’s done. it involved a lot of sweat, tears and midnight skittles. (love the citrus ones). but out of pain comes beauty and i’m excited to have over 30 pieces catalogued for your viewing pleasure. i never realized what a broad range of materials (indonesian bone, indian heishi beads, lavender lepidolite)  goes into onyx feather necklaces until i aggregated them for the guide.  it’s inspired me to scout out even crazier pieces. and thanks to my friends/buyers who always remember to find unusual pieces for the line when they are on their global travels. without them the line wouldn’t be as eclectic and each piece wouldn’t have such a unique story. thank you. and thanks to haley for giving 100 percent with the gift guide shoot. you went over and beyond the call of photographer duty. there are new pieces in each line featured and they all go live in the e-boutique on thanksgiving day. click hereto view it!

onyx feather files | behind the scenes

some images from our upcoming holiday gift guide shoot. everyone did such a great job! thanks team! it isn't an onyx shoot if the models don't change in the street (see below) and aren't swarmed by teenagers.

onyx feather files | our necklace clasp manifesto

one of my favorite parts of designing a necklace is selecting, designing or creating the clasp. to some people adding a clasp is just an afterthought. the sticky part of the envelope you distastefully lick when you are about to mail off your package. but to me the clasp is the artisanal waxed seal on a well-designed invitation. there are times i use an unconventionally modern clasp. or let a vintage clasp be the final antique touch on an otherwise contemporary piece. at times i pick a small, delicate clasp to play second fiddle to the necklace. it could be romantically floral. or uncompromisingly geometric. sometimes it is unapologetically crowned with swarovski crystals. or unassumingly etched with intricate filigree.

and then there are those moments i let the clasp steal the show. because the back of the neck is a part of a woman’s body that should never be an afterthought. because there is something alluring and elegant about catching a glimpse of  an exquisite clasp floating on the nape of a beautiful woman with an updo.

no matter the onyx feather collection your necklace comes from, every piece will have a graceful, strategically-designed clasp to compliment the nape of your neck.
