School’s Out!

It’s that time of year again—school’s out for summer. Our family tradition involves giving the kids something special around graduation time, to celebrate the completion of another school year.

Bring a summery feel to your spring wardrobe with our vibrantly-colored jewelry

It’s still winterish out and I find myself turning to vibrantly-colored pieces like our Kimberly Claire necklace which is one of our best sellers.
