My Newest Treasure: Rock Crystal Necklace

Natural Rock Crystal Necklace by delphineA few weeks ago I went to the Gem Faire in Del Mar, California with my mom. Mom, among her many talents, is a jewelry designer. I scored a pile of natural crystals and Mom turned them into this gorgeous statement necklace. It’s made of real rock crystals, so it’s quite heavy, but totally worth the neck strain. Merci, Maman!

week in review

This photo pretty much sums up the week … hammering away. What will you be doing this weekend? I’ll be finishing up some designs for a series of gift bags (a collaboration with another stationer … details to come soon), planning for a big November beach photo shoot with my friends Adrianne Smith Floral Design and Bixby & Ball, going over the details of a business launch with a friend, reviewing tons and tons of intern files, uploading a portfolio to another new business launching next week (y’all are going to LOVE it), going to Brand You seminar, touring a private school (looking for somewhere new to send our little star student), and finally finishing (hopefully) the makeover in our son’s bedroom. Sleep doesn’t seem to be in the plans. Ugh.

In case you missed it, here’s what happend on the blog this week:

• We peeked into Delphine intern Courtney Fone’s head to see what inspires her (Paris!)
• A wish list masqueraded as an inspiration board for our son’s bedroom makeover
• A cool statement necklace, lovely for a wedding day, or any day
• The scoop on the Brand You seminar I’ll be attending this weekend (I think a few seats are still available)
• Top 10 trends in holiday cards and Thanksgiving traditions: Delphine in the press

• We have a new DELPHINE FACEBOOK page. Be a dear and click over to check it out

statement necklace

Mémé Delphine’s favorite store is Talbots. (She pronounces it “Tal-bo,” which makes it sound so chic). So I have spent many hours sitting in the “husband” chair waiting for her. But next time I’m in there I am going to head over to the accessories department, because I see that they have some very cool, hip necklaces, like the pretty one shown above. I like the understated hues, paired with not-too-shiny gold. It’s chunky, but not crazy heavy looking.

Choosing a statement piece of jewelry for your wedding day is tricky — look for something that reflects your personality, isn’t too trendy, and will stand the test of time. I particularly like something that you can dress down, and wear with a white shirt and jeans. Every time I wear my wedding day necklace I think of the first time I wore it, and how amazing that day was.

plum desires

plum necklace by Dinosaur Toes on ETSY; plum shoes by Lela Rose for Payless


Plum is such a rich color, isn’t it? It can be a little Dynasty when done wrong, but I like the modern take on these goodies with the frayed edges. The necklace reminds me of a crocus. The shoes would look fab with a suit, worn at a Junior League committee meeting … or equally chic with dark jeans and a black cbgb tshirt. And guess what … you can have both for under $55.

wish list: taurus pendant


Since I didn’t get a single thing off my Christmas wish list this past year, perhaps I’ll have better luck with my birthday wishes? Or maybe I’ll take matters into my own hands and get this cool vintage Taurus pendant for myself. I found it here at the 19Moons shop on Etsy. Love it!!! Want it!!! … sigh.

woodland

 


click for the scoop on all items shown above.

 

One trendy theme that is “so two years ago” is the woodland theme. But it is near and dear to my heart, as we debuted at the National Stationery Show with a woodland collection a few years ago. The adorable sisal owl christmas ornaments shown above made their way into my shopping cart last week (from Target). I’ll use them as props for photo shoots, and I’m sure a few will find their way onto the Christmas tree, too.

fun stripes


Paul Smith (notebook and coffee pot) is the master of stripes, but I also love these Jonathan Adler pillows! The sparkly dress by Banana Republic is in last year’s Pantone Color of the Year, Blue Iris. I think you’ll see this color sneaking into home décor next year. Necklace from Banana Republic; chic chartreuse lamp from Moss.
