Lotus Necklace ~Rebirth~
Longtime one of my favorite jewelry makers, Araceli Silva combines an elegant design sense with a holistic approach to life. Her jewelry is eloquent - it perfectly describes its wearer. I get compliments every time I wear one of her designs. The new lotus necklace is on my list!

If you are SoCal local, HoD is taking part in this open studios event in Boyle Heights the 16th, 17th, 21st, 22nd. You can try things on and meet her!

Planet Lucid 
Brooklyn Faces Camo t
Designer Ryan Spence has been raising his game for a while now. The Brooklyn Faces collection is it for me -- great design fueled by a grounded sense of community. For the guys on your list, the camo t is what to give. I'm all about the pencil skirt, and I'm sure no one on your list can resist a tote bag.
