Ashley Morgan May Newsletter

  
April Showers bring May flowers! And May flowers provide a profuse palette of fresh, natural spring colors. For my Spring collection, I was inspired by the bright watery colors in my favorite new stone, Paraiba Tourmaline. With this rare stone, I chose to use my signature hand sculpted look and add pave diamonds for a “shimmery” look. These pieces evoke a soft, fresh ‘California Chic” look for any occasion this spring or summer.

 

May also brings Mother’s Day which is dear to my heart for many reasons. I feel incredibly blessed to have been raised by a truly loving and inspiring mother. She taught me the beauty of creating, encouraged me to follow my dream of designing jewelry, and constantly teaches me about the value of giving back. I am also blessed to have two inspiring and adorable daughters of my own!

 

During the month of May, I am looking forward to hikes to cascading waterfalls that remind me of strands of jewels; story time with my precious creations and their dad, Morgan; and spending time with the people who are dear to my heart!
Wishing You the Loveliest of Springs,

Ashley

Paraiba Tourmaline Earrings by Ashley Morgan  

 

 

We just finished an exciting new collection showcasing Paraiba tourmalines. This precious gemstone is the most valuable in the world, and with one glance, it is easy to see why. Glowing from the inside out, the beautiful and rare Paraiba Tourmaline can be found in a variety of “watery” colors including neon blue and neon blue-green. Discovered in the 1980’s, this gem is commonly found in the ancient and exotic country of Brazil.
We are proud to offer more of this collection at our new partner, Philanthropist, a fashion boutique in San Francisco. And, you can feel especially good about your purchases at Philanthropist, where each purchase of these beautiful pieces is an act of compassion – 100% of their profits go directly to charities combating poverty within the Bay Area.

5 Easy Steps to Cleaning Your Own Jewelry  (As Seen in Real Simple)

Gold

Soak for 15 minutes in a solution of two cups warms water and a few drops of mild dishwashing liquid. Gently scrub with a soft bristle toothbrush. Rinse with warm water and dry with a soft cloth.
Diamonds
Soak for 20 minutes in a solution of one cup warm water and 1/4 cup ammonia. Then gently scrub with a soft-bristle toothbrush, getting into the small areas between the diamond and the setting. Rinse with warm water, and lay on a tissue to dry. If your diamonds are set in platinum, this method will also clean the setting.
Pearls
Rub each pearl individually with a soft, clean cotton cloth dampened with a solution of two cups warm water and a few drops of a mild dishwashing liquid, like Joy. (Soaking strands of pearls can cause the string to stretch.) Let air-dry overnight.
Silver
Rinse in warm water and pat dry. If silver is tarnished, use a silver-polishing cloth or a jar of silver-cleaning fluid, such as Goddard’s Silver Dip (available at drugstores). (Silver cleaner won’t harm gold and platinum, but it won’t clean them, either.) For jewelry with intricate designs, use a silver-cleaning paste, which can get into small crevices. (Don’t use toothpaste or other abrasive cleaners, which will scratch.) Wipe with a clean, soft cloth.

   Wall of Lanterns (As seen on Pinterest)

We love this colorful display of lanterns! The various colors and shapes stand out on their own while also creating one coherent visual image. Much of our collection is inspired by the romance of distant places.
