I saw my gem guy yesterday, he had tons of great stuff as he always does.  I had on my list white topaz, pearls, deep purple amethyst and vibrant red garnet.  Apparently eggplant is the new black for fall.;)  I came home with NO dark amethyst.  I don’t know what happened, I had it in my hot little hands yet somehow I didn’t buy any.

I did however come home with some more rustic items.  I am feeling this whole Wilma goes to Cartier vibe lately.  The mix of the rustic, naturalness of say white coral branches paired with luminous pearls and sparkling cubic zirconias.  I’ve never been a wood jewelry girl, but I think I would do it if I could pair it with the sparkliness of dazzling gemstones.

Here is an example of what I am talking about:

That is me on the left wearing a necklace called ‘White Lightening’ which was also the same necklace that Karen was wearing in the small screen debut of CDM.  That necklace is also getting snatched up by boutiques in Dallas and LA… of course it is not on my website yet, soon, soon, soon, I promise.

My girl on the right is sporting the Patrice which looks fabulous on her.

Alright, gotta go… I got so excited talking about Wilma going to Cartier that I have to go design some more!Â

    Carrie – I am LOVING that hair color on you. I had to do a double-take, I didn’t recognize you at first. Necklace is beautiful. As always. Everything you does is stunning.

    OMG girl! When did you go dark? Love, love, LOVE the new ‘do’ though! Guess who called me Friday night……Dave Hafer! I gave him the link to your site – so look for an email from him soon.

    Oh – I think I’m supposed to be replying to the blog…uhm…let’s see…eggplant is the new black??? Guess that little ‘gem’ (pun intended) hasn’t made it this far south. I’ll be sure to spread the word! Although I’ve been swearing that this funky light-teal colored purse I bought (and have been subsequently carrying with EVERYTHING – regardless of whether it ‘goes’ or not) is the NEW black! Hmmm…may need to rethink that.

    Anyway…keep blogging! I swear I can “hear” you as you write!

    Hugs and Kisses – Linda Colsen
