Countdown 4

So we are beginning the countdown to releasing this album I’ve been working on for over 10 years!

You might say Suzy, why 10 years? That’s so crazy!

Well it all began when I first started my business Rossmore. and while I was working 18 hour days often, I had a more flexible schedule so suddenly my artsy side began to flourish in the most amazing ways!

I had a friend writing and recording music and he said, “hey write a song with me,” so we did, it was called Body Hi, and it is the first song I ever wrote and he produced it! I LOVE this song and it has such a special place in my heart! And now over ten years later, it ended up as the 7th song on Baby Blue! It’s just a great song. Thank you Oscar for being so pivotal in this journey. Don’t know what I’d do without the gift of music you so generously shared with me!

Anyhow. Then I wrote some more songs. Went on a quick tour with Oscar and then decided to move from WeHo to Silverlake to pursue Music above all else! But that’s when things got hairy. I wanted to work with people, but I came across many challenges, some very difficult to work with relationships at times. And my project stalled over and over.

Then I got distracted, and took a detour on do a duo thing, that ended up being very disappointing for me personally, but ALSO just what I needed. The disappointment fueled me to work towards only getting MY album done, exactly how I saw it. In my vision!

So I prayed about it and let the whole dream go, but by the hand of god I was led to my current producer by my father-in-law, and man was this the moment for me!

From the point on of meeting my producer, I just put one foot in front of the other, to do one song at a time as I could afford, (studio and production time is a fortune!!) and finally 3 years later, here we are with my work of art, Baby Blue.

I am so proud. It took an army of people to get this done. And a decade of relationships, work, highs, lows, to bring this into fruition! And it’s done and I can’t wait to present it to you guys!

And lastly, Getting this album made was one thing. But then packaging it has been a whole other journey. I’ll share that part in the next post! Cheers to the count down. Here we go!

Below are all the mock ups that while we loved, did NOT become the album art work :

My Gal Nikki at Bullseye Vintage curated a little capsule collection just for all the babes at Rossmore! I love how seamlessly the pieces integrate with the Rossmore Btq items! It’s like they were meant to go together! You know pieces are fire when they play well with others! Each piece is one of a kind and full freaking vtg delicious. You will be so pleased with the amount of compliments you receive!

I’ve been working with Nikki for over ten years, we have sold all over the country together at events and trade shows! It’s with my pleasure I introduce her work to you all! She’s always been a dealers dealer, like the people in the vtg scene go to her when they need something special and so do I! She can source anything, and not to mention has crazy style and taste! Anyway, get ready, the mini collection drops Friday! Woo! Are you on the mailing list? Get there first!

Happy screenshot dump. Love cruising the inter webs and sharing. Enjoy!! Xoxox

don’t stressy

I love it when my clients come to me with antique rings they want to change or melt down and I’m like. Don’t do anything. That thing is fucking brilliant. Legit 95% of the time that happens. Dude. Old shit. Is the good shit in jewelry land. You can’t duplicate the patina of time honored amazingness. Anyway. Inspo above. Love you all!!

Ps my album is almost ready to release! So excited. Will share more soon! xx

oyster samples

Had this urge to make a little ring dish, inspired by oysters and pearls. .they came out nice! I am pleased. Which brought me to ‘Next I’d like to make them in porcelain’. ..process people! ,,, I’d call this first batch ‘concept samples’ .. then we will try some pre -production samples in porcelain. Dial those in. Then get to production!! It’s really important to not under cool your ideas! Proliferation is key to exquisite product! Xx

wiggn out

it was my husband’s birthday a few weeks ago, and since we were in lockdown and he LOVES parties, I decided to throw him a costume party for 2! I ordered 70s themed wigs, accessories and outfits off of Amazon and made fondue! (Do you want the recipe?) We listened to Barry white and Giorgio Moroder. It was perfect. Below is the wig I bought for him. Lol. I wore it to the grocery store for fun to pick up all the cheeses. …The stuff quarantine has pushed me to do!!! Lol. Anyway. Hope your day is brighter for knowing I’m wigging out just a little!

auditioning

we made this sapphire and aquamarine pendant this week, I’m so excited! I dreamed it up one night and voila made it a reality! Now I just have to audition it for what I’m going to put it on! My intention was to bead it with large faceted aquamarine rondelles, which I hope to locate! We will see what I find when I do my sourcing. I love smoky Topaz, but it’s not what I envisioned, so maybe lapis would look nice? … Or a multi color strand with rose Quartz, malachite and lapis and Jasper ? .. Not sure! See below. What do you think we should do with the piece?
