This amazing alphabet caught my eye when I was reading my New York Times Sunday Magazine a few weeks back. This surreal A-Z is a limited edition series of t-shirts designed by M/M Paris for Prada. A collector’s edition with exclusive 64p book will available in Prada stores soon. A great fashion treasure (and wouldn’t these make incredible mixed metal pendants?).
The June issue of Marie Claire on newsstands now includes a feature with model Tori Praver beautifully adorned in Waxing Poetic jewelry. Tori’s sexy bohemian look pictured here included Waxing Poetic’s Square Insignia Charm, Fleur de Lis Charm, and Lucky Mojo Horseshoe Charm all strung on the Leather Cord Necklace. We love the layering of her gauzy top, crocheted sweater, and a variety of flowing necklaces and bracelets in leather and mixed metals. The resulting look is casual enough for a surfer girl while at the same time totally chic.

The latest issue of Pregnancy magazine with Tiffani Thiessen on the cover has a lovely article about jewelry that’s great for pregnant and new moms. We’re delighted that Waxing Poetic’s Crest Insignia Charm and Silhouette Portrait Charm are featured in the article, both of which make perfect Mother’s Day gifts for soon-to-be moms, longtime moms, and anywhere-in-between moms.
Over the past several months we have been in the throws of our new journey… New innovative jewelry designs that blend perfectly with our classic collections. A new catalog that mirrors a stunning likeness to storied art books of poetry and gorgeous photography. A revamped website that is home to yes, of course, our jewelry, but also a collective of traditions and the history of the company, our materials and our designs. In essence…Waxing Poetic’s story.
And here, now, our new blog.
This, our very first blog post, welcomes you behind the scenes on the catalog photo shoot in Laguna Beach, California.
Meet the softly feminine and serene Paisley prepping for a shot, wearing a gold plated Baby Charm on a gold plated Baby Ball chain. That glow you see coming from the charm… that is a divine memory held close to the heart. Pretty darn wonderful, isn’t it?
And this is Haddon: A naturally radiant beauty with a mesmerizing musical talent, wearing the Spirit Brew Remedy in a Bottle charm, a Flip Flourish pendant, and a mix of the Birth Ornament and Banner bracelets, … a fearless blend of novel and classic with a touch of a hip trendsetting combination. Who knew that bold and graceful would be a match made in heaven? We did. And, now, so do you.
Paisley, exercising wonderful calm and patience while being nudged and poked, is adorned with Storybook Pages’ Everlasting charm, a Signature Seal pendant, Poetry Fragment bangles, and Banner bracelets. Timeless gold and silver and earthy leather… and oh my gosh… stunning.
We have an inherent ability to create a life sparked by our wishes and hopes; to use our heart as a map. And if you need these charms and tokens to remind you of your own strength of intention along your odyssey, then so be it. Amulets are ancient and magical for good reason. They work because we believe, we have faith, and we hope. And through this, we experience one heck of a thrilling journey.
