Our house line of candles has been getting some love around the web. Read what Into The Gloss and Closet Vanity have to say about it.
Campfire in particular makes a fantastic holiday scent. It's a bit unexpected (no pine! no cinnamon!), yet it's warm and earthy and super smokey. It's also a completely unisex scent, making it a great thing to stock up on for those extra gifts you always need.
Our first in our annual series. This one is geared towards those looking to give their true love something really special.
1. Satomi Kawakita Arc Necklace, $790 2. Elizabeth Street Lapis Necklace, $840 3. BittersweetsNY Marquise Ring, $650 4. Satomi Kawakita Diamond Bar Earrings, $450 5. Elisa Solomon Flower Ring, $450 6. Catbird Chained to My Heart Earrings, $400
A short addendum for the MEN: You may think your wife doesn't want jewelry, but after years of helping people, let me tell you something: She does. Really. (The exception is a vacation. If that's what you plan on giving, well, nothing beats that.)

I have had this photo on my desktop forever, and I just today realized it is one of our customers. I won't say who. Photo by Courtney Brooke.
(She's not actually wearing these earrings, but you can.)

Regarde! I love a heist movie, a good mystery and a clever design - this here new calendar is the perfect union of all three. In the endlessly appealing style of Mr. Boddington's Studio.

Where did you grow up?
I grew up on Bainbridge Island, Washington, just a short ferry ride from Seattle.
What did you dream you'd be when you grew up?
Funny, my 3 year old just asked me if I wanted to be jewelry designer "when I grew up" this morning! I was always a little designer, but I dreamt of being a concert pianist. I designed Carnegie Hall performance gowns for my barbies.
Who/what is your style inspiration?
Photos of our mothers when they were young and we were little. There must be something about the light or the film… they always looks so beautiful and chic without even trying.
What was the last great book you read?
Recently: The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson and Tiny Fey’s Bossypants. Old favorite: The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas.
What is your favorite part of your job?
I love why people give my jewelry to one another... for engagements, weddings, motherhood, friendship, anniversaries... celebrating love and the best moments in life.
What is your favorite way to spend a Sunday?
Hanging out at the beach with my husband and two little girls, followed by a delicious dinner where nothing gets spilled.
80s or 90s?
John or Paul?
What do you covet at Catbird?
The Linda Rodin Face Oil and a Polly Wales ring are on my wish list.
