unique engagement rings

unique engagement rings…

We are proud to announce our new Bridal division which offers organic and unique engagement rings for the bohemian bride. Rough + Luxe Jewelry was born out of creating my own engagement ring and the many requests from customers for heirloom quality diamond & sapphire engagement rings, anniversary band and wedding bands.

You may view our unique, alternative Bridal and Engagement line on our website at Rough Luxe Jewelry.

shine on purple rain…

Rest in peace, my friend. He was a force of nature, a shining light of musical brilliance and really did see the world through purple colored glasses.
He had a nightclub near mine in Miami…and would come into our club with a cane & his crazy outfits that only he could wear…and I would make him Kahlua & cream…shaken like a milkshake. It had to be made just so. He never really drank it…he would just let it get warm and I would bring him another.
He was funny, eccentric, surprisingly shy and kind. He loved to watch the club chaos and was a great observer.
I had the honor of attending his birthday one year at his nightclub, Glam Slam which was an old theatre. He played non stop on stage until 3am…I have never seen anyone so talented or musically brilliant in my life. Or since then.
You will be missed by all. We lost one of the great ones…

Mornings at the farm…I get to wake up to this sleepy head…How lucky am I?  Libby always has the best bed head around…Is it any wonder why I fell so in love with the Gypsy Vanner breed…

postcards from the farm…

You don’t see a double rainbow come along everyday. Does it mean we get two wishes and two pots of gold?

People ask me quite often about living on a farm…and don’t I miss the city or the beach? The answer is …no, not really.  I read a wonderful little post by Dalarna Farm that just about says it all…

…elephants and luck…

Crushing on our Elephant Necklace today…Elephants are believed to be a symbol of luck and wisdom…and we added a few little hearts for love. We love this little guy and wearing him makes us believe in the power of intention….

a new leaf

My new mantra for the year…and I am trying to live by it. Like so many of my tribe I struggle with being too much of a giver…Balance, making boundaries and saying no are now in my vocabulary. It is a long time coming…and sorely past due.
