Style Tips

Look Book | Grace Collection

Ifirmly believe that jewelry makes an outfit. I have my staple clothes that fit well and stand up to the tests of Colorado life, but I apply my style and self expression through my jewelry. As a lover of color, Harmony’s Cosmic Girl Collection is my all-time favorite (read her artist muse here), followed by the Starseed & Galaxy Collection of Labradorite & Pyrite, and now… the Grace Collection.
With a June birthday, pearls were always my birthstone option, and as a colorful girl, I was not pleased. I thought of perfectly-round-they-are-probably-fake pearls, I thought of Wilma of the Flintstones, I thought I should have been born a different month. Grandmother’s pearls? No, she is a lover of Turquoise. But when Harmony introduced me to the Grace Collection, with its Keishi Pearls and Moonstone, Lariat necklace and Trapeze Earrings, and many ways to pair them together, I fell in love.

When we released the new jewelry for May’s First Friday, I debuted the Grace Collection wearing white pants and a grey tank top. Ladies were dressing me up and using me as the mannequin to play with their different styling ideas.

"Try it as a bracelet! this!"

"Oooh, you could wear it as a belt!"!

"Tie it like a scarf!"

"A scarf?"

...She presumes to fold the necklace in half, and pull the two tails thrown the midway point. Oh! like a scarf. Love it!


The next day, I was leaving for the 95 degree weather and big waves at Playa Colorado in Nicaragua. With 10 days at the beach with 10 of my friends, I considered bringing 10 (jewelry) outfits. Yes, outfits. Armed with an orange and bright pink bathing suit, a few sun dresses and shorts, the big question came: what jewelry do I bring? Armed with the ideas shared from the ladies at First Friday, I decided not to pack ANY jewelry, and to just wear three pieces for the trip—the Grace Lariat, the Grace Simple Necklace and Grace Trapeze Earrings. I took these surfing, horseback riding, pool swimming, jungle adventuring, golfing, and even to a game of futbol. The simple ease and elegance, combined with the playful creativity, overrode my indifference towards pearls, and I felt like I had 10 sets of jewelry with me.
