Happy Sunday, everyone!

I’ve been waiting for this day for what feels like forever. You see, I’ve been tossing this idea around for probably a year now and after all the love and encouragement I’ve received from my family and friends, and even blog followers who suggested I consider this, I finally  put my big girl pants on and went for it.   … and I couldn’t be more excited about it!

So how ’bout you watch this video below by clicking on the arrow to see what I’m talking about and then come on back here so I can give you all the scoopage.

So, what do you think?  This really was a natural evolution as you all know that I have a true love for Native American jewelry and, as I said, I proudly wear it.  MTT ~ The Collections is the perfect addition to the blog, as well as a terrific way for me to share my love of these pieces with all of you … and with all the interest that it has had on instagram, even receiving pre-orders, I only wish I had thought of it sooner!

Firstly, I want to thank those of you who gave me the nudge and pointed me in the right direction. Within the next several months, the goal is to continually grow the collections by adding new pieces and categories such as travel items that I love, fantastic accessories for women and even some cool options for men, as I actually have a menswear background.  However launching MTT ~ The Collections with FAB Native American jewelry was the absolute perfect starting point for me.

My favorite piece from the collection is, of course, the signature bow guard.

This piece was specifically made for my collection and is unique in so many ways.

As I mentioned in the video ~ this is a handmade, hand stamped sterling silver bow guard with a completely adjustable black leather cuff.  The turquoise is Sleeping Beauty turquoise which is revered and highly sought after due to its pure sky blue color and generally has little to no veining or webbing. Additionally, the inventory of Sleeping Beauty turquoise is quickly diminishing as the Sleeping Beauty mine in Globe, Arizona closed to turquoise mining in 2012 and buyers from all around the world continue to try to get their hands on this true gem of the Southwest.  Perhaps now you know why I am so thrilled to have used it included in my bow guards.

I’m also loving these these fab concha drop earrings and this banded turquoise ring.

The turquoise in this ring is Kingman turquoise which comes in a range of blue hues and even varieties of greens.  Both pieces will pair with anything and look fantastic worn both casually and formally.

But perhaps what has surprised me the most was the reaction I’ve had to these fun dog collars during my sneaky-peeky intro on Instagram.

Also receiving pre-orders and what I now have a dangerously low quantity of.  Get ’em while they’re hot, folks! …  Get ’em while they’re hot.  

So I’m really quite proud of my first edition to MTT ~ The Collections and I hope that you love it as well.  You can view and shop the entire collection here.  Thank you all for your continued support!  Until next post  ~~~ XOXO
