All of us at Baroni happily greet the season with open arms, and look forward to the changes it will bring. We continue to design jewelry with our heroes in mind; the moms, the yogis, the marathoners, the teachers, the artists, the surfers, the writers, the gardeners – celebrating the playful, the strong, and the beautiful people who wear our jewelry and shine – from the inside out.

Family, Inspiration, Sunshine in January

There is nothing like the Caribbean. The lush compilation of islands with white sand and turquoise waters. It slows us down and make us appreciate everything in our lives.

Each year in January, my girls and I meet 23 members of our family at St. Croix on the U.S. Virgin Islands. It is a gift to have a week with the people we love. The week was filled with laughs, long walks and runs, yoga on the beach, making sandcastles and exploring the beautiful island.

My worries shed off my shoulders. I became inspired and creative, reaching a part of my soul that is often difficult to access in daily life. We, of course, talked about jewelry.

We tried out some of my new collections.
I love seeing my pieces on different people. All wear them in their own way, bringing them to life. It makes the pieces uniquely theirs. Everyone shines.

As sad as I was to see the week end and say goodbye to my family and St. Croix friends, I am also happy to come home. I am grateful to live in such a beautiful place and have the ability to visit other inspiring places.
I brought with me lots of pretty shells, hundreds of pictures and, of course, many new design ideas to work with. I found it is important to be inspired by newness.

There is nothing like traveling to do so.

Valentine's Day

Spread the love. Happy Valentine's Day everybody. Why not celebrate a day set aside to appreciate the ones we love? Look around you at the people with whom you resonate. Be inspired by the people you love. Be inspired to be creative. Be inspired to be artistic. Be inspired to be more compassionate. To give back. To soften. To smile more. To react less. The people we love make us more beautiful. Send blessings of love to everyone you know. They’ll feel it. Stop and smile at strangers. We need more peaceful love in our world. We can make the change.

I am blessed to be attending a yoga conference this weekend. It truly fills me up, I leave with fellow yogis feeling radiant and filled with love for the world. I am so thankful for all my friends and family, for Baroni friends and employees. These are the people who form us and make us who we are. So, to past loves and new loves, to our friends and family, blessings and love.

For those of you sporting new Amore or other designs from Baroni, send us your pictures. If we post them on our web site, we’ll send you a necklace and earring set. The henna hearts sold out for Valentines.

People do believe in the power of love. Have a beautiful day.
