For the past twenty years, I have been fortunate enough to engaged in two of my passions which have become careers: designing/consulting and writing about fine jewelry. My Memoir: My Charmed Life: Rocky Romances, Precious Family Connections and Searching For A Band Of Gold was published in the summer of 2012 and I continue to write for magazines on all topics of jewelry. My collection Bethany B, which I designed and owned in the ’90s was sold in Barney’s New York, Beverly Hills and Japan and to small boutiques, specialty department stores and catalogs nationwide. I have continued to create engagement rings and wedding bands and act as a personal stylist and consultant, helping private clients build jewelry wardrobes.
My company, Plan B advises on all facets of merchandising, marketing, branding and design for independent jewelers. I have been a dealer of fine period jewelry and have now combined my affinity for antiques with my sensibility for what today’s woman want to own and wear as well as my knowledge of the meaning and sentimentality of various pieces into my new collection: Estate of Grace. It is a labor of love and one that I hope you all find as fun and meaningful as I do.
