So Noaki Jewelry is hitting the open road!

We're heading north for a week, past San Francisco to the loveliest place ever -- Mendocino. It's it stunning? We try to go up every year. This year, however, will be a little more interesting with a 2-year-old in tow. Fingers crossed that he'll make the 10 hour drive...

Mendocino County is about the closest California gets to looking a little like New England. In fact, the opening shots of the show "Murder She Wrote" were actually Mendocino.

I'm already planning on hitting the antique stores on the way for new finds. And, of course, the jewelry, tools and laptop are already packed. (There's no way I'm missing a moment of this election cycle...)

New Pieces!

So here's a peak into some new pieces I've just created that I'll be posting to Noaki Jewelry very shortly...My current favorite is the mother-of-pearl hair comb in the upper left. How pretty would that be for a beach wedding?

Zenadia Design

So I just have to share these lovely cards that I just received from Heidi of Zenadia Design. Aren't they beautiful? Zenadia Design does custom stationary and Heidi also has a fabulous wedding blog that I encourage you to check out. I'm a huge lover of nice paper and the card stock, colors and textures she uses are just stunning.

The Knot Season Preview

Noaki Jewelry was featured at The Knot season preview event in Los Angeles! The event had a green theme and because I use a lot of vintage items in my pieces, the organizer thought my jewelry would be a good fit.

To spice things up my friend suggested we drape these gorgeous cakes with necklaces, hang earrings on the candle holders and put vintage hair combs in the flower arrangements. It was such a fun idea.

Over the past month I've been working like a crazy woman trying to come up with more pieces -- so you'll notice quite a few new items that I'll be listing in the coming week!

Take a look:

And the winner is....

Jen, a lovely bride in Australia, won the Zenadia design contest! She picked these fabulous earrings that remind me of a flapper's dress. The rhinestones are all individually hanging and provide so much movement. Just adorable.
