This holiday season, I was lucky enough to participate in a couple of holiday markets, and though they were successful in many ways,
I think the best part was meeting other artists, like Jennie from Modern Folk Ware.
Not only is she super original and talented, but she is a doll to be around. It was so refreshing to connect with a fellow artist mama.
Check out her new website. You are sure to like what you see and find something for yourself, or someone else!
Happy New Year!
The aspens have come and gone here in Santa Fe. Luckily, we were able to capture them at the height of their bounty, as backdrop for our Fall CJJ shoot!
After a wonderfully hectic summer, I have designed new pieces that have added a bit of flair (aka diamonds) to the earth tones of fall fashion. These tiny accents will sparkle above a bundled scarf or chunky cardigan. As usual, our favorite local boutique Cupcake Clothing, has outfitted our beautiful Maddie.
More new pictures, pieces and prices coming soon!
Whoa, how is it fall already?! Was everyone else's summer as busy as ours?! I promise I haven't disappeared, just been really busy, filling orders, enjoying summer with the little ones!
In July, CJJ debuted at the JA Show's New Designer Gallery in NYC, and what a success it was! We got amazing exposure and new accounts (check out their features soon). It was exhilirating to see what other designers are doing and be around the energy and excitement of it all!
That inspiration has got me started on some new, glitzier pieces for fall/holiday, coming soon....
I am thrilled to report that this month's boutique showcase is "Ooh! Aah! Jewelry!" With 2 locations, one in Albuquerque and one in Denver, you can't go wrong. As a gal living in Santa Fe, when I want to get away to a bigger city, those 2 are my first choices. The mother daughter team running the shops are pretty amazing and creative, just check out their site, and stellar blog (CJJ pieces are featured :))! Even more, go visit!
Everything at CJJ has been going so well lately (look out for the latest shoot photos soon)! I feel so lucky to be surrounded by such awesome and talented people!
It's crazy to think back 7 years ago when I was at a jewelry show and I met Dana from Abacus. He is a very talented artist himself, so we immediately bonded over our mutual love of craft. On top of his own work, he and his amazing staff run 5 stores in New England (my home).
Thank you Abacus for another year of orders. I am pleased to be apart of your collection of artists that sell handmade jewelry.
As promised, this month's store showcase will be on arguably my most favorite boutique of all! Cupcake Clothing in Santa Fe, NM my home! This may sound familiar as Maddie wore all Cupcake Clothing fashions in the latest CJJ Catalog!
Owner Kate Kruger has a winning eye and provides the hippest fashion for the ladies of our little city! Not only do I feel honored to have my pieces sold in the store, I feel lucky to have such a fab place to shop, and such a stellar woman to call a friend.
Check out Cupcake's newest arrivals here!
Guess what?! CJJ's new lookbook is printed! My favorite lady Nicole shot Miss Maddie posing with all of CJJ's latest pieces. Cupcake Clothing (Santa Fe's best women's boutique) even styled Maddie's wardrobe! Needless to say, everything looks amazing!!! Scroll through here and check out the new shots. We will also be sending them out to clients, so check your mail!!!
Just in time for Valentine's Day, the CJJ Love Tag Necklace has arrived! I am a little bit obsessed with it! Like the CJJ initial ring, the Love Necklace is personalized with special letters, and these will hang close to your heart. Order yours today!

One of my favorite parts of CJJ is finding and developing relationships with new stores all over the country, and I have decided that once a month, I am going to share one with you!
I just love hearing the stories about how and why people started their business and what makes them tick.
This weekend we had our first photo shoot of the year for the new CJJ catalogue! My favorite local boutique Cupcake Clothing supplied the most beautiful garments to accent our lovely model and CJJ pieces!
We are so lucky to be having such a glorious winter here in Santa Fe. Nicole shot outside in beautiful light, and no one froze! Stay tuned for the look book early next month!
I just cannot believe it's 2014 already! How time flies! Over the holidays, my family and I were lucky enough to spend time in Palm Springs, CA. Have you ever been? It's just beautiful, almost stuck in time (except for all of the ultra hip hotels and restaurants), full of mid-century modern architecture and design. This is one of my favorite styles, so I was thrilled to be surrounded by it!
Since then, I have been wearing these CJJ pieces everyday.... Can you see why?
Endless thanks to everyone that helped make 2013 a great year.
I look forward to all that 2014 has in store.
Last week, CJJ had a "Girls Night Out" Holiday Event, and guests enjoyed holiday shopping!
Many thanks to hosts Blair and Nicole for making delicious cocktails and treats to go with the latest CJJ creations (displayed beautifully if I do say so)!
The night was a great success, everyone leaving with gifts (for others and themselves)! I can't wait to do it again!
Don't you know when you want to take pictures of your family, but it's physically impossible to do so because you are most likely also taking care of them? Enter my dear friend Nicole, who is not only in love with CJJ (which is awesome and amazing because she's our perfect CJJ girl :) but she's also a very talented photographer!
A couple of weeks ago, she took some pics of me and the kids. I may be biased, but I think they came out beautifully. Check out more of her work here!
This year for Halloween, my nails got dressed up! With two kiddos to get suited, I couldn't harness the energy to think of something for myself. I was however, so inspired by everyone's obsession with nail art that I dressed my nails up quite a bit. Halloween naturally lends itself to ghosts and jack o' lanterns, so it wasn't difficult to think of designs.
In doing this, I also came to this wonderful realization that CJJ goes perfectly with more opulent nails! Because my designs are so simple and clean, a busier nail is an excellent compliment.
Check out my fancy hands putting the finishing touches on my daughter's monster costume below!
Who doesn't love a beautifully designed leather catch-all bag?
I have known Scabby Robot Designer Jill since 2007. She and I have been running accessories businesses with a passion for making pieces that are not only wearable, but durable too (ultra important, especially if you have little ones)!
It feels great to stay connected creatively with someone that I admire and love! We are a perfect pair, for friendship and collaboration!(Just check out the pics above, each of us rocking our styles).
That's why I am obsessed with Scabby Robot! Handmade in San Francisco by the lovely Jill. CJJ jewelry and Scabby Robot go together like peanut butter and jelly. Our designs are both simple and classic, easy and elegant.
Truly perfect for everyday, both made by hand, with love and care.
