Bling in the New Year with Mary Esses

New Year’s Eve happens to be the year’s most spectacular of evenings, a grand goodbye to one year and a very festive and exciting welcoming of the year to come.  One recurring trend present at every New Year’s party is sparkle, and lots of it!  From the champagne to the glittery gowns, streamers and fireworks, nothing pairs more perfectly with all the evening’s glitz and glamour than dazzling jewels.  I share with you my favorite pieces of 2013 and my very best wishes for more sparkle in the New Year!

Ready to go!

While many are preparing for Memorial Day barbecues and a long weekend, I–like most of my jewelry industry friends–are finishing last-minute details and packing for jewelry’s biggest week of the year: the Vegas shows! I can’t wait to introduce my new designs, including a new color grouping and (announcing for the first time here!) a gorgeous new Silver collection. I can’t wait to hear what you think…

Along with these, I’ll be showing the new Coral and Zebra designs. You’ll find me at Couture’s Design Atelier, DA01.

Best wishes for a wonderful weekend and a safe trip to Las Vegas!

From the oceans deep

For as long as I can remember, the ocean has played an essential role in my life. It calls me, as both the place where I feel most relaxed and as a muse for my creative work. The latest illustration: my new Coral Collection.

Like coral, these pieces feature a unique, beautiful and tactile surface. All crafted in 18k gold, this Coral grouping is one of my favorites. I love how the theme is so personal to me, yet is translated into designs that are contemporary and universal.

I’m looking forward to introducing the full range of Coral at the Couture show later this month!

Celebrate your stripes!

I’ve heard the saying, “a leopard can not change his spots; nor a zebra his stripes”. My new lace collection grouping celebrates the latter. I love that proverb’s message: be true to your own spirit and path in life. With a nod to the graceful lines of these unique African animals, this line reminds you that individuality is beautiful, so why would you want to change?

The Zebra designs are crafted in my signature woven, fabric-like lace style. All pieces are 18k gold and feature subtle curves and organic shapes reminiscent of a zebra’s stripes. Here are a few of the newest pieces, with diamond accents. I hope to see you at Couture, where I’ll be introducing the entire Zebra group!
