24K (Magic) Holiday Fashion

One of the holiday season’s biggest fashion trends include metallics.  An excuse to shine on like bedazzling Christmas lights without looking like an overdressed glitzy grandmama?  Sure, why not.

Glittery gold is a seasonal standout, and thanks to Bruno Mars‘ current hit, even more so that you’ll feel the “24 karat magic in the air” …

Our Company Holiday Party / 2017 Kickoff happens to have a fabulous golden theme to celebrate a momentous year of achievements… As always, the plan is to not only have the most wonderful time but also look the most ravishing at these events.  Also because I’m part of the party planning committee so I cannot be under-dressed.  Oh, like I am never properly dressed for any occasion, hahaha, thanks.

Here is an inspiration board for a holiday gold rush featuring some of my faves….

It’s official!  My new business venture has been launched.  Introducing, ladies and gentlemen, BOHEMIAN PRINCESS, Handmade Jewelry and Accessories by Honey Aubrey.

C2My love of creating earrings had finally led me do something wonderful and challenging.  Something to share with the world, and to call my own.

My official logo was created by one of the most talented artists I know, Louie Patlingrao.  You can visit his website at www.loubrication.com.  Thank you x a million for such an amazing, amazing job! Hugs & kisses darling.

Bohemian Princess features one-of-a-kind handmade earrings and jewelry, created with love and aloha here in Hawaii Nei.  After a few days of pondering, I came up with the name and the slogan, “Be Free. Be Fashionable.”  Designs are inspired by the creative and passionate culture of the Bohemians- (drop and dangle earrings).  Of course, minus the dwelling of an unconventional lifestyle, but rather with a touch of elegance and grace (use of pearls, glass beads and crystals), hence Bohemian Princess.

These past month and a half, I have created over one hundred pairs of earrings.  They are separated in four different collections- Luxe, Princess, Earth and Ocean.  The earrings are girl names inspired by the collection.  For example, in the Princess collection, there’s Jasmine and Anastasia.  In the Ocean collection, there’s Lana (Hawaiian name meaning calm as still waters) and Morgan (Celtic name meaning for bright sea).

Here’s a preview:

Website is officially launched today, and online shop is live.

Peacocks & Paper Cranes

These past three weeks of my free time I had spent creating beautiful accessories with special meaning and symbolism.

Earrings and pens made from beautiful and vibrant Tibetan peacock feathers symbolizing beauty, grace, enlightenment, protection, renewal and good luck…

Inspired by my lucky peacock decor that hangs in my living room, I wanted to share the goodness I feel when I see it…The vibrant hues lifts up any spirit, and encourage a promising tomorrow.

I have also learned to fashion paper crane earrings created from high-quality origami yuzen paper. Various beads, gemstones and pearls are incorporated into the paper crane to create unique earrings- none of the designs are the same.

Tsuru, or paper crane is a symbol of hope, peace, happiness, loyalty, good health and yes, good luck. Legend has it is you make fold 1000 paper cranes, and you get to make a wish.

My wish in this lifetime, is to sell one thousand paper crane earrings.

Pens and earrings will be posted for sale on my Etsy within the next few days. Hope you like them! They make perfect Mother’s Day Gifts 😉

Dinosaur Bones = Statement Accessories?

Renowned fine jewelry designer, natural history fetishist and philanthropist Monique Péan’s Fall 2013 Collection features 150 million-year-old dino bones. Yes, darlings…dinosaur bones.

MoniquePeanF2013

Who would have thought fossilized bones of extinct animals from hundreds of millions of years ago would even be considered as fashion accessories?

Péan did, with passion…and with a purpose. In 2006, she debuted her eco-friendly and sustainable fine jewelry collection inspired by Alaskan Native art and culture, featuring her signature fossilized woolly mammoth and fossilized walrus ivory. The collection is comprised of varying fine jewelry styles, from statement necklaces, earrings and bracelets to pendants, beaded bracelets, bangles and rings. In her current collections, Péan uses other ecological, natural materials such as 18 carat 100% recycled gold, sustainable buffalo horn, fair-trade precious stones and repurposed diamonds and diamond slices to name a few.
