In the middle of a long table, that was just yearning for a group do-it-yourselfers, were piles of glimmering organic stones. After sifting through these treasures with the other guests (including the fab Lucky Magazine and The Daily!), I decided on the original stone that first caught my eye. It was an emerald green chunk that had an exquisite shimmer to it. Talking it over with the designer extraordinaire, we decided a hefty piece such as mine would be best suited on a cuff. Boy do I heart me some cuff love! A couple pencil strokes on her design sheet and voila, a Melissa Joy Manning original to call my very own. Such a fun experience from a super-fun designer, who you should most certainly check out if you have a few fabulous stockings to stuff!
