Very Popular Ring!

This ring has been extremely popular with my shopping clients, and since posting it last week, I have had lots of requests for further information. Here are some photos of the various stones used in the ring, and a photo of two of them stacked on my hand. The same style can be made into earrings or a pendant.

I have the ring on the left in rose gold with emeralds, and the Nudo ring/earrings on the right in presolite. I also have the earrings in diamonds, which are spectacular!
My daughters have smokey rose quartz with rose gold, and blue topaz with yellow gold.

The same idea in a necklace too!

Blue, blue, blue…

Spring is in full bloom here with such blue sky. Last week my focus was on was orange, and this week I am seeing blue!

The Nudo ring continues to be my favorite. I wear mine nearly every day, and am considering adding another to stack. Maybe the rose quartz?

Every day here in Florence I notice something new. There is so much to see that sometimes I miss the little things.

My “handbag of the week,” pick is this lovely light blue bag with python trim. Perfect blue for spring and summer. It is one of a kind from Fabio. I may need to rent an additional apartment to accommodate my ever growing handbag collection…

Orange for Easter!

Buona Pasqua from Florence! The little chocolate shops are filled with eggs of all sizes. Very festive here for Easter.

Not exactly Easter color, but I am seeing orange everywhere!

These are lovely handbags with top notch hardware. I am trying one of the medium sized ones to see if I can manage with a smaller bag.

My daughter told me that I am too old for these sneakers! They do come in blue and beige as well, but I love the orange! What do you think?


Even though it has been very cold in Europe, the weather is warming up now and I am excited to return to Florence. Chia has her bag packed and a new haircut. We arrive next Thursday and have our first shopping tour a few days later.

Last year, the goldsmith helped me design these earrings from a drawing I saw of extinct marine amoeba. I am thinking about a pendant now!

We are getting shopping requests daily now, but I am cutting back on the number of tours I will do. I want to save time for travel to more of the Italian towns on my wish list!
