theheartdepartment I love FUNctional jewelry. It is what I always strive to create and when I buy other's jewelry it is what I demand. This ring is like a pool of water to dive into midday no matter where you *are* and the recessed bezel setting and hammered gold are rustic and luxurious and practical. This ring is from my personal collection by Union Street Goldsmiths in #SanFrancisco . 22 karat yellow gold - hammered - with #Paraiba #tourmaline
For Sale $3000. Size 5. Email mariel@theheartdepartment.com if interested. #ilovethisring #22k

theheartdepartment A wedding of waves for a landlocked mermaid. Many thanks to my fiancé, Frankie, for being in cahoots with my dad to create a ring that is very *me* with the diamonds from both my mom's and Frank's mom's wedding rings. It's a very special piece that is symbolic in many ways #7 #waves #engagementring #weddingring by #rockharddesigns signature #burningwater 2d

theheartdepartment I call this lady, Carrie Nunes, my metalsmith fairy godmother. She is an intensely skilled jeweler who has taken me under her wing. Carrie has pushed me out of my comfort zone of design style and because of her I have made pieces this past year I never thought I could. I just didn't know I had it in me and she believes in me. She has introduced me to new techniques and given me tools I didn't know existed (hello jump ringer that makes chain making enjoyable!). She has corrected and guided me and I'm a better jeweler because of her. @womensjewelryassociation #wjanightout
We had to make sure to document her in a skirt with a picture because she pretty much lives in jeans and dirty workshop shirts and house shoes except for when she goes to yoga. she has legs! We met 3 years ago at a GIA Middle Tennessee Alumni meeting & it was love at first sight.

theheartdepartment These were made by little old ladies in Porto, Portugal. When I travel, one of the musts is to buy locally made jewelry. So these are from my personal collection and not for sale;) I love supporting the craft worldwide. #porto #Portugal #22kt #gold #filigreefriday 4d

theheartdepartment Beneath a waning Harvest Moon
We walked among the dunes.
It was an ethereal, magical adventure in time and space.
Flour-soft white sand glowing blue in the moonlight.
Sea oats, switchgrass and goldenrod accent the glory of the hills of white sand that climb up to the stars.
Frank reached for my hand and knelt on one knee.
I said Absolutely!
