That day has finally arrived, the unveiling of the newest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition! For me that day was spent running around the city looking for a copy while mentally having my fingers crossed that some TC might be sprinkled in the issue somewhere. Trying not to look like a perv at the store, I scanned each page looking for TIFFANY CHOU in bold, and there on pages 87 and 98, was my sigh of relief. My skinny rings gracing the finger of this year's cover girl, Chrissy Teigen.
I realize that accessories may be the last thing viewers look at, I mean, look at those lovely ladies! (I got to meet 2014 SI Rookies Valerie van der Graaf and Marloes Horst, and I am still in shock that people can actually look that gorgeous in real life.) But I am still proud and so very thankful to be in some way part of the legendary issue, always remembering that Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011 helped launch the TC brand and will be forever grateful.
So cheers to babes in bikinis and TC jewels!

The My Fair Coral Cuff has been around since the very first TC collection, back in 2010, and has since turned into a signature piece. So, I thought it was about time for everyone to know its origin story!
For my senior project at SAIC I hand made and designed a collection of swimwear. One of the pieces was a coral themed top and skirted bottom (1.) which featured an embroidered piece of fan coral (took me around 12 hours!!!).
Two years later, when trying to come up with ideas for my first jewelry collection, I ended up returning to that skirt. I took a picture of the embroidery and put it into photoshop (2.) where I played with the image until it was a workable design for my model maker.
