A Jewelry Manifesto

I wrote the manifesto below as an introduction for my new shop on 1000 Markets. I was inspired by the one I found on Jonathan Adler's site and found as I was writing it that there are plenty of things I believe in. Next perhaps I should attempt a Manifesto for Life.

1. where my heart lies..., 2. RING COLLECTION 06, 3. Audrey Hepburn,

4. Babouche, 5. Ascot - Pretty in pink, 6. Rosette Nebula

I believe jewelry is a celebration of beauty.

I believe every woman should own a signature piece.

I believe in the power of colour to cheer you up. Especially pink.

I believe that if we are stardust we should sparkle more.

I believe gemstones have less calories than cupcakes.

I believe in Moroccan slippers glittering with sequins.

I believe you can't go wrong emulating Audrey Hepburn.

I believe in dressing up old jeans with the right pair of hoops.

I believe you know what you want to wear better than Vogue does.

I believe in the preppy perfection of a crisp white shirt.

I believe nature is an infinite design resource.

I believe you deserve a treat even if you haven't been good.

I believe God made diamonds for the same reason They made daffodils and butterflies, which has everything to do with joy and nothing to do with status.

I believe in huge, frothy hats at Ascot races.

I believe everyone looks good in gold.

I believe handmade = made with love.

I believe in longevity, not trends.

I believe in comfort.

I believe in unapologetic decadence.

Yes, yes, and more yes!

Oh heavens, your blog is always so dreamy :)


Hello from Canada! I wrote my manifesto a few years ago and I still stand by it. (I think yours is fantastic) Here is mine:


We believe that...anything goes. You have the freedom to define your life & personal style and the license to change your mind always and often. Knowledge of our society & culture, it's places, people and their ideas (hence 'Gallery of Goods') empowers all of us. You are 'at-liberty' to create your world.
