Silver Wine Goblets

I’m in silver heaven over here at the Creme Etsy store. I’ve had these gorgeous Silver Wine Goblets knocking around in my goody bag for a while, and finally decided to give them a good polish and put them out there in the world for someone else to enjoy. Wouldn’t they be the perfect thing to add a little elegance to a modern setting?

African Trading Beads Necklaces

The minute I saw these African Trade Beads, I honestly could not think about anything else until I bought them (dealing with said bead addiction in therapy). These are called “American Flag Chevrons” and they were made in Venice, Italy in the mid-1800’s and taken to Africa as trading beads.  Very rare. I am just dying to pair them with one of these JCrew get-ups from the spring line. Freaking fabulous.

We have two styles of the necklace available in our store. The first, pictured above, pairs the beads with brass African beads and Swarovski crystal. The second combines them with stunning recycled glass from Africa.

Both have an adjustable clasp, allowing the length to vary from 15 to 30 inches. Available in our Creme de la Mode store.

Cobalt blue wine goblets

We’re headed out for a Mexican fiesta this weekend. My hands are covered in masa and I have 50 tamales steaming up my kitchen. Hurray for spring!

Speaking of blooming colors, I love the idea of a colorful dinner party, with mismatched plates and wine goblets in shades of orange and cobalt. Matchy-matchy is so over.

Personally, I’d start with my collection with these babies.

Vintage 9-piece Bar Set a la Mad Men

Poor Betty Draper Mrs. Henry Francis. Nothing to do but wait around until the big wigs at AMC make nice and put our beloved Mad Men back in prime time where it belongs. If she’s going to be standing there looking pretty until 2012, she’s going to need an ashtray and might as well have a cocktail. After all, it’s 11 am somewhere.

How about this gorgeous baby blue, gold-rimmed 9-piece bar set to make the days go by Betty?

Order this fabulous set now and it will be yours by summer, just in time for a season 4 refresher.  It’s the only thing that will get us through to 1965.

Sea Foam Tourmaline

Ah the sea. We all came from it. Some of us have never left. I’ve never been more inspired to design jewelry than when looking out over the coral reef of Okinawa Japan….

So when I saw these Paraiba Tourmaline stones from Brazil, I could not sleep until I made them mine. They are incredibly rare and very difficult to find. The shades of these stones drift from aquamarine to hints of lavender. Here they are paired with Cubic Zirconia and 18K gold plated discs, hanging from am 18K gold plated chain. So insanely beautiful! Purchase them here before I decide to keep them for myself!
