Endless talk of all things sparkly.

Happy New Year, 2010 from Gem Gossip!

2009 has been an amazing year, and like every December 31st, I like to look back on the good times.  Since Gem Gossip is very thankful for our many readers, I’d like you all to reminisce with me!  Let’s take a look: 


Meeting fun, great people. Above are myself and HOORSENBUHS designer Robert Keith. Special shoutout to a few more great people I’ve met through Gem Gossip this year, Kether Parker, Ariel Gordon, Nancy Revy, Sarah Churgin, Marion Fasel, and thanks to all the commenters & lovely emails from readers like you!


Acquiring some great jewelry over this past year–enjoyed all the long searches in antique shops, had fun at the flea markets, and have found some amazing designers who create the most beautiful pieces of jewelry


Photo shoots were always a good time, especially finally uploading the pictures and laughing at the out takes. Thanks to Scott at PenshireMedia for photographing some of the best shots


Proud to wear a favorite designer of mine, Zoe Chicco, the onyx pyramid ring. Best birthday present ever.

Gem Gossip debuted a new website layout, along with a jewelry store this year! It was sad to package up the first ever order, and say goodbye to a piece of jewelry I handpicked–but it was a start to a whole new venture!


It was so exciting to create and design a website for Walton’s Antique Jewelry. My photography has come a long way.
