Geek Mom Love...

I just started reading this great blog that is connected to the ultimate of cool geekness and gadgetry, Wired.

For all you moms out there who love the ThinkGeek catalog and get all giddy when you see anything ninja-related, then you are in the right company.

My sister always considered herself the geek in the family - with her love of books, solitude and all things sci-fi, but there is no way you grow up in a household like mine and not walk out of it with a hefty supply of geekiness running through your veins.

THEN I married a total techie-geek and my 60 year old son trapped in a 9 year old body came along, sprinkle in my Minecraft-loving 6 year old daughter - all of whom love to sit around watching Mythbusters at dinner time (don't judge) - and there really is no escaping all the geeky goodness.

That's why I love coming up with jewelry pieces that are geek-esque, like the Latitude Longitude line and the Roman Numerals.  They aren't CRAZY geeky, but a touch, just a touch.


And now, for the Fall, I just created the Exponential Mom pendants. Now, for someone who grew up under the watchful eye of an Engineer father and had to finish math books over Summer break, my love for math is not strong.  BUT - these are pretty darn cool.

A little play on math-iness and some bling.  That should even things out. :)  I think Dad would be proud.

Harry Potter and Our Double Wrap Leather Bracelet...



I created this custom piece for a client who needed a special something for her baby sis.  This is a double wrapped leather bracelet with a sterling plate and hand stamped text.

And who wouldn't love that quote?? :)

Pretty Peridot...

I love the color green.  To me, it represents life, vitality, vigor.  Peridot is one of my favorite gemstones due to its incredibly lively green color (almost mysterious in its hue) and August's illustrious birthstone.

Peridot in Raw Form


Peridot is SUCH an awesome hue that Chanel even made it a nail polish shade:



Which would go quite nicely with this Peridot frock:


I've been playing around with peridot to create some components for a few jewelry pieces I'm creating for an upcoming wedding:


What are your favorite peridot pieces?
