Luscious Photo Shoot


Erin, Natha and Bree

Our new website is about ready to be launched and we are really excited! New collections, expanded Sweetheart line, new photos and more. We’re looking at early March most likely. In the meantime I wanted to post a few of my favorite shots from the photo shoot we did recently with Julia Vandenoever.

Julia is an amazing photographer and was so fun to work with! Sally Walker of Alchemy did the makeup and the models were Bree O. and Erin M. Gorgeous ladies if I do say so myself, I’m really pleased with the shots and the jewelry looks great too which really, is the main point right?

Cheers to a good review!



Trisha Ginter, indie fashion designer extraordinaire – designer of Mergirl– and also co founder of the indie shopping site Smashingdarling.com (where Luscious metals jewels are also sold) recently purchased one of my popular Jewel rings. She wrote a very cool review on her beautiful blog, MerGirl (Thanks Trisha!)

Intention Ring

Every once in a while, I actually create jewelry for myself, and here is my newest piece, the Intention Ring. I originally heard of this concept on Oprah where she spoke about something called wish boards (or dream, spirit or intention boards). I then took a workshop with one of my mentors Gretchen Reid of Motherhood Transitions and we actually made our own boards. We cut out pictures and words that resonated with us and our goals. I thought I could easily translate that same idea into a ring with the theme being centered around the year 2010 and the qualities I wished to manifest for myself in this new year and new decade. I used quartz crystal because this particular gem just grabbed me at the gem show and also because of the intense energetic qualities quartz crystal brings to it’s wearer. It is the stone of “clarity” and that is the word I inscribed in the center, looking through the facets of the stone causes the word to diffract in a most lovely and poignant way.

I used a sparkling faceted chunk of quartz, set in sterling with words such as “trust” and “mystery” inscribed on the band and bezel, and added 14k gold accents, partly for color and partly because gold metal in and of itself has so much value and longevity. All in all, I am thrilled with how it came out and I really haven’t taken it off since. Please contact me if you have a vision for your very own 2010 intention ring, I would love to do custom orders on this one.
