The She Shell Diaries
The question I get asked the most is "What inspires you?"
My work is greatly influenced by the ocean and marine life, but one of my favorite parts in the creation process is naming a piece once it's finished.
I am a true kid at heart, a lover of fairy tales, comic books, Disney and Pixar. Clues to what I enjoy are hidden amongst my product titles. So here is a little guide to explain a few of my jewelry names.
I always look forward to shoot days, not only because I get to have a black and white shake from Foodparc, nor the fact that the man behind the camera, Jason Ross Savage is the bomb, but also because it's a time when my work gets to shine and look its best. Here are some behind the scenes shots I took from the photo shoot today.
It's hard to believe that January is almost over and we are well on our way into 2012. This year began with the launch of Tiburón 2012, and I am already putting finishing touches on a few upcoming pieces and can't wait to share them with everyone. Here is a sneak peek and a behind the scenes look at the making of La Sirène 2012.
I recently went out to dinner with some close Maui friends that also live in the city, and decided to try on some new upcoming pieces. I love the pairing of these two bracelets with their contrasting widths and how nicely they compliment my navy blue cardigan. Stay tuned, these little bracelets will be out in February.

Even though the leaves have begun to change color and the temperature has started to drop, I was able to celebrate All Hallows' Eve and the first days of November in true New York fashion.
The night of the 31st was spent at the Candy Land Halloween Party hosted and decorated by Sex and the City's Patricia Field at the Hotel on Rivington. A few days later I was fortunate enough to be invited to a screening for the award-worthy film Rampart, followed by an after party at Bergdorf Goodman. The week was topped off with a nice 1 hour wait at Ladurée for some flown-in-from-Paris macarons. I swear that line is getting longer and longer...xxo T.
