Hi there,

I am back (briefly) from another round of travels, some work, some play, all fun!  My first stop was Jackson Hole, Wyoming.  I had a great time with all the ladies at Belle Cose for my trunk show.  Its a such a gorgeous town full of cowboy spirit and open skies.

This arch of antlers that welcomes you into town is really quite breathtaking

Giddy up y’all, these cowboys hitched their wagon outside the store.

Belle Cose is such a beautiful store, you should check it out if you are in Jackson Hole.

Nothing really changes in rainy old London, the streets still make me feel like I have just stepped onto the set of Coronation Street.

I was thrilled to catch up with my old friend Robert McCalla

My next stop was a quick hop across the pond to London.  I lived in London 33 years ago so it holds a special place in my heart.  I haven’t had the chance to visit for years so it was great to catch up with old friends and visit my old stomping grounds.After a couple of days in rainy old London I jumped on the Chunnel to Paris, this was my first time taking to train from London to France.  So much fun!

One of my favorite things about traveling is being able to experience the art and imagination of artists around the work. I fell in love with this sculpture in the gardens outside the Louvre

Then it was back to London for a few more days of fun, I managed to catch a couple of shows for London Fashion week with my dear friend (????)

I was immediately drawn to this sculpture at the Tate Modern, I then discovered its are the work of the same artist I fell in love with in Paris. Don’t you love serendipity…….

I was so inspired by all the beautiful art and architecture I saw on my trip, I can’t wait to share the beautiful new designs I have been working on since I returned.

These beautiful new half crownwork ball earrings are my current favorite creation, they are delicious diamond disco balls for your ears.
