Spotlight on Naples, Florida

Our travel spotlight shines on the sophisticated beach town of Naples, Florida. Susan and her husband, Eric, recently returned from a lovely trip there with the inside scoop on what to do and see.  In addition to the upscale boutiques where you can find our jewelry, we are listing a some of the things you won’t want to miss in Naples like the fun restaurants, gorgeous beaches and breathtaking sunsets.

Where to Stay

The Ritz Carlton  in Naples is a destination all its own. It is 20 acres on 3 miles of gorgeous beach and has every amenity you could ask for. A 36-hole golf course, world class spa, as well as 7 restaurants. You don’t ever even have to leave the property (It would be hard to even leave this lounge chair)!

The Inn on 5th is located right in the heart of downtown where many of the shops and restaurants we’ve listed are located. It boasts soundproof rooms so you don’t have to worry about the nightlife keeping you up. With only a 10 minute walk to the beach, you’ll be sure to find everything you need at your fingertips!

Where to Eat

Bleu Provence

Bleu Provence, Naples’s premier French restaurant, can be found tucked away on a side street of what’s known as Old Naples. Owner and master chef, Lysielle Cariot, grew up in Provence and loves creating authentic French dishes and pairing them with French regional wines. This is a fine dining experience you won’t soon forget.

Campiello is housed in Historic Naples Mercantile Building. They offer inventive Italian cuisine inspired by traditional Tuscan country cooking. Don’t miss the open-air bar and live jazz! Also check out Continental and Lurcat, the D’Amico restaurant group’s two other great restaurants in Naples.

For an upscale seafood restaurant with a twist, try Sea Salt. Chef Aielli’s philosophy is to blend simplicity with the very best fresh ingredients in a menu that changes daily. He uses 130 different types and flavors of salts from around the world to season his innovative dishes and put his unique touch on Florida’s finest ingredients.

What to do
Go to the beach! Naples is known for their calm seas, which makes the beach all the more relaxing and the pristine sand is a thing of beauty. If your hotel doesn’t have a private beach, Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park is considered to be one of the most pristine beaches in the world. If you’re traveling with kids, Lowdermilk Beach Park is a great place to find a beach playground, volleyball court, and tables for family picnics.

The city’s main landmark is the 1,000 foot long pier stretching from the end of 12th Avenue. A great place for strolling, fishing, taking in the view and possibly spotting some dolphins. Make some time to visit it during your trip, and even better if you can watch the sun set over the water. It really is magical.

Want to take in some culture? There are some great museums, including the Baker Museum for fine art and for the kids, the Golisano Children’s Museum is a must see. There are also many wildlife reserves and conservancies to visit if you’d like to see the spectacular local Florida wildlife. Some of the highlights are the Bird Gardens of Naples, The Conservancy of Southwest Florida and the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.

Shopping

Walking and shopping on 5th avenue (pictured above) is a great way to spend an afternoon in Naples and we have a couple of great boutiques there who sell our jewelry among other high end goods.

The World is Your Oyster

Oysters tend to bring out strong feelings for people. Some love to eat them raw or any way they can get them, others may need them fried up and soaked in butter first (and you can’t really argue with that), while others may appreciate them from a distance. The unique shells, the oyster house vibes, or the beauty of collectable oyster plates are all reasons to be intrigued by the oyster. One thing is for sure, the oyster is trending. As a food item you can find it on more and more menus, Oyster bars are popping up more often, and a younger crowd is partaking when they used to not. We’ve even heard raw oysters be referred to as “the new sushi.” However, there are more ways to appreciate oysters than on the half shell. Susan Shaw Jewelry has created some gorgeous pendants from oyster shells. The larger pendant below was molded from an oyster that was actually served to Susan in a restaurant. Inspiration comes from everywhere!225E0385-4D19-4451-9D89-1C2568E6FDD2These oyster molds, hand-cast in 24kt gold, make beautiful jewelry. You can see how they mix so well with the pearls below. Oysters and pearls are a match made in heaven (well, actually made in the sea, but you see what we mean).BD9038A9-19F5-4B5A-8FEA-AF80BD6B15C0As is true for many of the trends we see in the fashion world, this oyster shell trend continues into home accessories as well. This mirror below in Susan’s home is a great example of the unique products created with oyster shells.D8D06532-EDE5-4F90-8210-6517C67B9B8FOn a recent trip to Naples, Susan noticed this mirror in the hotel room entry way! FullSizeRender2This onyx box topped with a gold dipped oyster shell is like a piece of jewelry for your home. IMG_4155This oyster-shaped dish from anthropologie celebrates the strikingly unique shape of the oyster shell.41693490_070_b2When we see a mirror like this one spotted in an antique store it makes us wonder how many satisfied oyster-eaters it took to provide the artist with this many shucks. Its really an incredible piece of art.IMG_4160The beauty of enjoying oysters as jewelry for yourself or your home is that you don’t have to limit them to the months with an “R” in them- because accessories can be enjoyed year round! 79BFE216-2373-4E8B-BD96-18D956E6DA25

So if oysters don’t impress your taste buds, you may want to give them a try in a new way! Just the shell!

The Elegance of Pearls

When you think of classic, elegant jewelry, its likely that pearls will come to mind. You may feel as we do, that you just can’t go wrong with a string of pearls.  Beyond the classic necklace or stud earrings, the world is filled with a variety of interesting ways to wear pearls. Layering different strands and mixing in golds and pendants is a trend we are seeing quite often lately and our pieces with freshwater pearls below are perfect for it!We also work with Mother of Pearl to create this beautifully crafted look. These shells in the photo are the exact type we use to cut the pieces to be inlaid into the gold jewelry below.We know pearls come in all shapes an sizes. The coin shape you see below is a great mix of modern and traditional.Recently we have started working with Baroque pearls. These large and misshapen pearls create a unique look that our customers crave.  Each pearl has been naturally formed and instead of casting out the imperfect, we are celebrating them in this new collection.We love pearls around our necks, but what about pearls around the home? Yes! We’re seeing it all the time now! Many decorative accessories are made up of mother of pearl. Mirrors, trays, boxes, etc. can add so much to your room.This wallpaper made from little sheets of mother of pearl is extremely special and unique.Whether it’s in your home or with your outfit, we agree with Jackie Kennedy who said, “Pearls are always appropriate.”

So whether it’s modern or traditional, there are so many ways to incorporate pearls in your style. Have fun with it!

The Midas Touch

One of the most recognizable qualities about Susan Shaw jewelry is definitely our gold pieces. The handmade molds Susan creates provide the unique look we are known for.

Her ideas literally turn to gold- how neat is that?!gold1-copy

Gold can be the perfect accent to your outfit, whether it’s an intricate statement piece or a simple and classic gold chain.gold5

However, fashion is not the only area in which gold can shine. Gold accents in the home are popular as ever right now. The gold hardware in the kitchen below warms up and brightens the all white decor.screen-shot-2017-02-24-at-10-33-30-am

Spotlight on: Houston, Texas

Our travel spotlight shines on a city close to home for us today. Houston, Texas may be driving distance for us, but we argue it’s worth the visit no matter how far you have to travel to get there. Known as one of the most diverse cities in the country, Houston has so much to offer any traveler. It has everything you’d expect from a big city from fabulous restaurants to museums and shopping, and as they say,”Everything’s bigger in Texas.”

highlight5_d37d5a87-b8cd-49a0-86d6-f7c22efe2f02

There are many places to find our jewelry in Houston and we will highlight a few of those in addition to some other interesting attractions for your visit.houston4

Be it the museum district, theater district, or quiet gallery, the culture of a city that loves art will grab your attention. We’ve listed some of the major highlights but the list certainly goes on…and on.

houston1

Located in the heart of Houston’s Museum District, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston is a must see. Comprised of two gallery buildings, a sculpture garden, library, movie theater, gift shop, café, two art schools, and two house museums—Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens, and Rienzi. Established in 1900, it is among the 10 largest art museums in the United States, with a collection of more than 65,000 works.

mfah

Also not to be missed, The Houston Museum of Natural Science is one of the most heavily attended museums in the United States. In addition to the permanent exhibits, the Museum houses a planetarium, Wortham GIANT Screen Theatre, and even a Butterfly Center. There are tons of educational and entertaining activities for kids and families alike.

For the modern art lover, The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston is sure to please. It is a non-collecting institution, meaning all new works each time you come visit. Also a perk- it is always free admission.

In addition to the visual arts, Houston is a great place to enjoy the performance arts. It is one of only five cities with permanent professional resident companies in all of the major performing arts disciplines: the Houston Grand Opera, the Houston Symphony Orchestra, the Houston Ballet, and The Alley Theatre.

houston4

Houston is also known for it’s high end retail stores. We are lucky to have our line represented in these fabulous shops below, where you’ll find our jewelry alongside fabulous designer clothing and accessories.

houston3

Another unique opportunity Houston has to offer this time of year is the Houston Rodeo. Rodeo has been a tradition in Houston since 1932. The three-week extravaganza kicks off in early March with a Parade through the streets of downtown. More than 2 million people will go to enjoy the grounds, events and entertainers over the rodeo season. With petting zoos, games and rides, the grounds are a great place to spend time with family.201502-lg-houston-livestock-show_0

On top of the excitement of the rodeo events, like bull riding, bucking broncos and barrel racing, spectators will also get to enjoy a concert in the arena. Some of the performers this year include Alicia Keys, Fifth Harmony, Blink 182, and ZZ Top as well as country favorites like Chris Stapleton, Alan Jackson, and Willie Nelson. Also, our jewelry just happens to go great with a fabulous pair of cowboys boots.

Safe travels y’all!

Cross Culture

There are so many versions of the cross as well as many reasons for wearing it- some religious of course, but many people enjoy cross jewelry without religious ties. Susan Shaw has always included many crosses in the jewelry line. We want to highlight some of the classic crosses and some of the newer modern versions. We would love to continue to see this trend grow and change in the years to come.cross3One of the versions of the cross we use in the line is the Maltese cross. This shape, which you can see below, is an 8-point cross said to have originated in the 15th century by the Knights of the Order of St. John and the island of Malta. Fast forward to the 1920’s when Fulco di Verdura and Coco Chanel were traveling Europe in search of inspiration and were taken aback by the beauty of the Maltese Cross. When Chanel included it in her jewelry line, she most likely didn’t realize it would become a classic symbol in her company as well as a huge the influence in the fashion world as whole. maltese_cross_resized

Since then we have seen many variations on this cross in the jewelry world and the Susan Shaw line is no exception. You can see some of the pieces below.
cross4

Another variation on the cross that Susan came up with is the shape you see on the necklace below which is made up of four crosses surrounding a middle stone. This interpretation of the cross has been very popular.cross1Another version of this design included four Fluer de Lis (seen in the middle necklace below). cross5Many of our pendants do feature the traditional cross, and we love bringing this symbol to our fellow Christian customers. We also have found over the years that many people who don’t have ties to the Christian faith enjoy wearing the cross perhaps because of it’s historical significance or for other individual reasons they find it appealing. On the freshwater necklace below you can see our newest medium, the glass coin, shown below with the cross symbol. cross6The cross trend in jewelry doesn’t seem to be going anywhere and just seems to get more interesting as the years go by. So we will keep creating the new and honoring the traditional as long as our customers appreciate the art of the cross.
cross2

We’d love to hear the reason you may be drawn to the cross jewelry!

Tassels

Tassels have been around forever and our gold-plated tassels have been in the jewelry line for years. I wouldn’t say they were ever out of style, but as they have grown in popularity recently, the colors and variations have grown to make this such fun trend. Tassels that were once only found in penny loafers, tapestries and curtain tie-backs are now taking on a more fun, flirty style. Our newest silk tassels (photographed below) add such a bold finishing touch to any outfit.img_5902Our crystal beaded tassels below are also a fun way to incorporate tassels into your look. The shimmer adds a little more polish for a dressier look.img_5991You can see many of our new colors below- it’s hard to pick just one favorite!
img_5958Jewelry is not the only place you can find the tassel trend. It has taken over many areas of the fashion world including handbags and shoes as well. nmx31gb_mu nmx36vs_muEven beyond fashion, we have seen tassels in home decor as well. They really take this sweet embroidered pillow to the next level.lennon-maisy-floral-tassel-pillow-cover-c

We just love the pop of color the tassels add to this nightstand below.
product_xph10042_image_2Whether you are dressing up a room in your home or dressing yourself for an event, tassels can make a fabulous finishing touch.img_5978-copy

Deep in the Blues

Why will blue never go out of style?  Because there are endless shades in the sky and in the varying depths of the oceans, and it’s in our nature to love these things that surround us. So what shade is your favorite? Ours currently is Indigo. Deep blues are trending and we are loving it! Our Sodalite stone below is so rich and bold you can’t help but love it.fullsizerender_1Blue Lapis is another stone you can find in our line to give that rich blue you crave.fullsizerender_3Deep blues are trending in the home just as they are in fashion. The richness of this color is highlighted exceptionally well in lacquered walls. The two rooms below have very different looks and yet both rely on the boldness of the deep blue.110

1455008323308Another great way to showcase the richness of a deep blue? A rich fabric like velvet. Check out the gorgeous blue velvets below. 8b677bc942dc

fullsizerenderThe blue and gold color combination made for a new look at our family’s holiday table this year.img_3570Another place we are seeing this fabulous deep blue trend? Kitchen cabinets. When it comes to stainless appliances, nickel or even brass hardware, it all works when you go bold in your cabinets.indigo-blue-freshome-21And can we talk about this marble hood in Brooklyn Decker’s kitchen below? It would not pop nearly as well against any old cabinet color. The blue is key.image1Blue and white is a classic we all know (just look at the bedroom below)!blue-and-white-bedroom-dominomagBut there are so many more color combos that mix with blue to make a statement worthy of your fabulous home or your equally fabulous outfit. fullsizerender_4

Christmas in San Antonio

Christmas is upon us! A time for family, festivities, and fun! A perfect time to share some traditions and holiday cheer from our hometown of San Antonio, Texas.alamochristmas_sacvb_comSan Antonio has so much to offer visitors and residents year-round, but we wanted to highlight some of the unique opportunities that make the holiday season so special here.

The annual HEB tree lighting ceremony is now in it’s 32nd year.  The 55-foot Christmas tree that marks the beginning of the holiday season in downtown San Antonio is erected on Alamo Plaza before it’s highly anticipated unveiling and lighting ceremony. More than 10,000 red, white, and green lights as well as handmade gold and silver ornaments will make Alamo Plaza sparkle throughout the holiday season. scottball_christmas_lighting_tree_holiday_river_parade_h-e-b_ford_alamo_plaza_riverwalk_11-25-2016-8-1170x780The San Antonio River continues to be the top tourist attraction in the city. The River Walk is home to many restaurants, bars and places to stroll and enjoy the holiday scenery.6d223d76ed82d9fa9a7389e367c152a5Thousands of holiday lights adorn the River Walk while cultural festivities promise an unforgettable getaway. Along the river, almost 200 trees are wrapped with twinkling lights and 20 stone bridges are colorfully illuminated with various patterns. The City of San Antonio holds a Light Up Downtown Holiday Contest that encourages downtown business owners to compete for the most decorative and creative use of LED lights. The result is a lit up river and street that combines for one magical holiday destination.

The Ford Holiday River Parade and Lighting Ceremony kicks off the holidays along the San Antonio Riverwalk. You can bring your whole family down to watch as 28 decorated floats go through the river in this unique nighttime parade. The trees along the Riverwalk, and the bridges, will be illuminated with thousands of lights. This special event highlights a San Antonio landmark and will help all ages get into the festive spirit.

scottball_downtownchristmastlighting_h-e-b_ford_riverparade_holidays_11-27-2015-18Another special event you won’t want to miss on the River Walk during December is the Ford Holiday Boat Caroling. Watch as groups of boats travel down the river singing holiday songs and traditional carols. There are over 185 school, church, company and civic choral groups performing throughout the month. This event is free and allows you to take in the sounds of the season while strolling the twinkling banks of the Riverwalk.

On the weekend don’t miss the The Ford Fiesta De Las Luminarias. This features more than 6,000 luminarias, which are candles in sand-filled bags, along the San Antonio River. These are part of the Mexican Christmas tradition of “lighting the way” for the holy family. Teams of volunteers make this display possible for the citizens of San Antonio to enjoy every holiday season.

If you didn’t get enough lights downtown, you can hop in your car and drive through the neighborhood of Windcrest, where their light display contests never disappoint. Each year has a theme and the homes participate by illuminating their yards to the wonderment of all who drive by.afk_5289Need a theater fix? San Antonio is home to some incredible theaters including the Majestic, where at Christmas you can find The Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker, as well as holiday concerts and shows all season long.bg1

If you miss out on the Nutcracker Ballet at the Majestic, you can still get your fill at the brand new Tobin Center.  This classic tale comes to life with Ballet San Antonio and the San Antonio Symphony.  It’s the perfect family traditional Christmas show.

You shouldn’t visit San Antonio without a visit to the Pearl. What once was a brewery is now a hot spot of shopping, eating and even lodging at the new Hotel Emma. The area is as rich in historic value as it is in unique local fare. 1214-open-road-san-antonio-pearl-brewery_o7r8gc

The Pearl hosts many events, but Tamales at Pearl, a holiday festival, has established itself as one of San Antonio’s top holiday events. Located along the River Walk extension, Tamales at Pearl offers delicious tamales from over 40 vendors, live music and plenty of fun for the whole family. This festive event is the perfect way to celebrate the holidays, as well as the rich culture of San Antonio.
