Pretty Cocktail Ring from Lucid New York!

cocktail rings

A couple of weeks ago, I got an email from jewelry designer Anna Sabino.  She said that she was a reader of Bubby and Bean, and that she wanted me to pick out of a piece of her handmade jewelry as a gift.  It really made my day to get such a sweet email from a reader, and when I visited her website, Lucid New York, I fell instantly in love.  Her work is incredibly versatile, and includes everything from elegant, classic rings, to cute little charms that are very on trend.

I was torn between whether to chose one of her necklaces (as a fashion designer, it was hard to resist this adorable gold scissors necklace) and her gorgeous cocktail rings.  In the end, I went for the pretty sterling silver flower ring above.  I'm a big fan of vintage cocktail jewelry, and this piece reminded me of the rhinestone flower rings my grandmother used to wear.  The ring is stunning in person, and I see myself wearing it with everything from fancy dresses to casual everyday outfits, like the one I'm wearing in the photos above.

As an indie designer myself, I was also impressed with the fact that all of Anna's jewelry is handmade in the U.S.  Producing my clothing designs locally is incredibly important to my mission as a sustainable designer, and I'm always thrilled when I meet other artists and designers with the same sentiments.  I'm honored and grateful to now own one of her beautiful pieces of jewelry. 

Oh, and turns out, Ms. Sabino has garnered some attention from the likes of some little publications you may have heard of called Vogue and Nylon.  Keep up the fabulous work Anna, and thank you for the lovely gift!

  11. Thanks for the sweet comments everyone! And thank you again the Anna for the lovely gift!

    The nail polish is plain old drugstore bought Sally Hansen brand. The bottle says HD Hi-Definition Nail Color, and the color is "Hue," #12. I am obsessed with the color yellow, and even though yellow nails aren't something anyone wants naturally ;), this polish is sparkly and the way that the light reflects it is really pretty.
