I’m not sure if I am feeling more inspired lately or if the new year is just bringing some wildly awesome editorials…I just had to share these photos I stumbled upon via Pinterest. Gotta love late night pinning and studio time! The styling is so on point it hurts!

I have been following Helen of Gypsylovinlight ever since she created her style blog and instagram and absolutely adore her. Not only is she an amazing stylist, her words flow beautifully in every single post and I truly admire the openness she shares of her journey to finding self love. She is nothing short of inspiring and here is a little glimpse into how this beautiful soul has styled her Mermaid by Hand turquoise ring and sterling silver wave ring. She is the queen of perfectly stacking rings and it is an honor to see my creations amongst some longtime favorites like Spell Designs, Penny for Your Thoughts Jewellery, and many more amazing labels. To see more on this beautiful gypsy, check out her blog,

Spell and The Gypsy Collective’s new look is getting me so excited for our roadtrip to Arizona to spend time with my boyfriend’s family for Thanksgiving. Each lookbook they create is nothing short of inspiring. Spell is a company that has greatly motivated and helped me tune into my own creative side over past few years and start my jewelry business. I always love how they style their pieces, mixing vintage with new, dressier pieces with comfy, worn in tees. Each piece in their new Spring/summer ’14 collection is just stunning.
