You know, I’m terrible with dates.
And basically any day that ends in “Y.”
To wit, my friends will call me the day before to remind me that tomorrow is their birthday. And even then I have about a 50/50 track record of wishing them a Happy Birthday.
Let’s just say, I buy a lot of belated birthday cards.
Anyway, a few months ago, my friend Robyn Rhodes approached me about collaborating on her collection. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because we all first fell in love with Robyn’s phoenix necklace when Emily Maynard wore it on the Bachelor. Since then, her handrafted pieces have been featured on Mistresses, About a Boy and the Bachelorette.
Robyn and I brainstormed a ton of ideas, but one thing that was important to me was creating an ageless collection: something I could wear myself, or give as a gift to my niece or my grandmother. Oh, and I wanted it to be something casual enough to wear every day, but sophisticated enough to wear for a special occasion.
Bonus points if it kept me from forgetting the important dates.
What we came up to was a collection of delicate, layering pieces, handstamped with Roman Numerals of your favorite dates. It makes a great bachelorette gift, or Sweet 16, but it’s just as cool for a new mom.
Or an old one.
All of the pieces are available in silver, gold or rose gold finishes, many with options to add a birthstone, and they all work together. They’re meant to layer, though they look just as beautiful on their own.
