I recently had the opportunity to collaborate with some stellar D.C. area wedding professionals to create this awesome coffee themed styled shoot full of inspiration for all you caffeinated brides out there. The shoot took place at Cervantes Coffee, a warehouse that made the perfect setting for the urban chic look we hoped to achieve. Here’s a look at some of my favorite shots…
For the bride, I created a necklace of clear Swarovski crystals, ivory Swarovski pearls and sterling silver elements in a lariat-style design. [Look familiar? That’s because this was a revisited version of the bridal set that I made for Abby last summer!]
Following the theme of pearls in various hues inspired by coffee and the industrial setting, I created a longer necklace for the maid-of-honor using Swarovski pearls in ivory and beige with hematite beads and gold-filled metal elements. This necklace echoes the lariat style of the bride’s necklace with a different color palette and length. I love this pairing of the necklace with a chambray top and black dress.
The styling of this bridal inspiration shoot was simply gorgeous, down to every last detail. I can practically smell the coffee brewing!
Thanks so much to our photographer, Megan Chase Photography, and our partners in the shoot:

I love being a small business owner and am so thankful to every one of you who makes it possible for me to do what I do. Now through Sunday night I’m offering 10% off all of the earrings in my shop, including 11 new pairs of stud earrings that are making their debut today, as a small token of my appreciation. They make perfect stocking stuffers!
Happy shopping, and thank you for supporting small businesses like mine!
It’s finally here! As I promised in Monday’s teaser, today I’m posting a whole bunch of pictures from the preppy Georgetown styled shoot that recently featured my work. Check out these awesome photos by Kealy Creative and Brittany Baker Photography!
The theme of the day was preppy style in hues of navy, bright yellow, and grey. Models Tess and Amy were styled and accessorized in outfits according to this look. I love the way the Amelie Necklace looks with the open neckline on Amy’s white button down blouse. Here’s a closer look:
Black and white photos are the best as far as I’m concerned. 🙂
This bracelet is a navy blue version of the Jordyn Bracelet that I made specifically for this shoot. What do you guys think, should I make it available in the shop?
This picture might be my favorite of the whole bunch. The way the pearls of the necklace and bracelet frame the mason jar of lemonade is perfect!
Thanks so much to Carolyn and Brittany for including me in this beautiful photo shoot!

I’m so excited to share this today! I’ve alluded on Facebook to a “special collaboration” I’ve been working on over the past few weeks, and today I’m giving you a sneak peek.
Two of my photographer friends, Carolyn Woods of Kealy Creative and Brittany Baker of Brittany Baker Photography, put together an adorably preppy styled shoot in Georgetown last week featuring some of my jewelry. I’ll be sharing more photos later this week, but couldn’t help but post this one in the meantime. I love the way Carolyn & Brittany styled my Pearl Stretch Bracelet in Classic and Amelie Necklace!
Earlier this season, I had the opportunity to do my first-ever photo shoot with the fabulous and talented Tiffany Lewis of Tiffany Lewis Photography. It was a great experience and I can’t wait to work with her again! (I highly recommend her if you’re looking for a wedding or portrait photographer!)
The above collage features a few of my favorite images from the shoot, but I’ve compiled all of the photos into an album on my Facebook page. which you can find here. I hope you have as much fun checking out my Autumn 2012 Lookbook as much as I did putting it together. Let me know what you think, and what you’d like to see in the next round!
Xo and Happy Weekend, Ali
