Last night, I went to a jewelry party. The jewelry was by Premier Designs, Inc. and it was lovely. A style for everyone. A range of prices. But more importantly, it brought this group of women together.
While looking through the catalogue, I saw:
and Fleur-de-Lis earrings,
the Haute Spot necklace,
and a necklace from the St. Tropez line.
Did you pick up on the theme here? Colette, fleur-de-lis, haute spot and St. Tropez – what do they have in common? They’re all French, n’est-ce pas? And the most cleverly named set, classic silver bangle bracelets and matching earrings? The French Twist, bien sûr!
And there were literally hundreds of other pieces available. Below is the information for the Premier Designs Jeweler.
Approximately 40 wonderful women were present – so much estrogen in the room it was palpable. If a male had dared to enter, it would have knocked him out – the estrogen, (not the perfume) was that strong. And there was wine – no whine, just wine. And more wine.
There were friends I see often, friends I see rarely, friends I hadn’t seen in many years, and friends that I just met. We shared a beautiful evening of laughter, joy and jewelry. And did I mention the wine?
Yes, the Premier Designs jewelry was lovely, but I think the true jewels at this party were the women, each multi-faceted, shining, brilliant, and beautiful in her own way.

Love that female energy!
Thank you for commenting. My daughter would say, “Girls Rock!”
So where are the photos of these lovely women at the party??? We want to see them!
Forgive me. No photos but I’ll see if I can get some from other guests to post here. It was only my first or second week blogging and, believe it or not, I was too shy to ask if the guests minded being photographed and featured on my blog. But believe me, with the response that I’ve received to this post and the numerous visits from the comment that I left on your site, I will not let that opportunity pass me by again. Merci and thanks so much for stopping by!

I attended this wonder full (no typo) party with all of these fantastic women. I almost didn’t go,because truthfully I am not into home party sales and all the “ho hum” they entail.yes,to me, usually they are boring and you feel pressure in having to purchase something there. Instead it was a great blend of our local gals.Yes, a fun surprise of personality,sparkles and stimulating conversation.We are all aging like fine wine and the many directions our lives have taken us,like the road maps of lines that are starting to appear on our faces, make for great stories unmatced by reality TV,the true stories of the journeys of our lives,told in triumph and trajedy.
Agreed and your comment is so beautifully written – thank you. I just wish someone(I) had thought to get out a camera to photograph that group. We’ll have get together again so we can get a photo or two to go with this story. Thanks so much for stopping by.

It was a great success…I am glad to have been apart of it…. T and I have put on many of an affair, but this one I believe stands on its own… the group of beauties that were gathered filled with love and life were a group like no other.
It was a delight to see everyone mingle and to share their stories among one another.
My thoughts are to maybe do an annual or even try to make something happen twice a year with the focus on woman….the collective….maybe this time on beauty of a women for every stage of life… inside and out….working on it in my mind…believe me I will make this happen…with the Sista’s
a great group of Jewels indeed!!!! thanks for the post 🙂
Great idea, Karla! Maybe we could do this quarterly or even monthly. Everyone bring a bottle of wine and an appetizer or dessert. If anyone wanted to bring a speaker or demonstrator, they could just let T know in advance so we didn’t book two guests on one night. All in favor, say “Aye.” Now, who’s going to tell T we’ll be gathering at her house every month? Thanks so much for stopping by.

we could rotate homes …. some could be out doors…. I think monthly would be too much….maybe quarterly with a different focus…
pitching in with apps, desserts and beverages is a great idea….we will keep the wheel turning 🙂
