Renew & Redo, A Brand New Kelly

It's still me...

Just a better working version, new & fresh only it's digital

 

As we age & collect "stuff" there are those things that are just too precious to part with. It's easy to say goodbye to old designer clothing you are no longer wearing, after all you must make room in your closet for new "stuff"! If it's in good shape you can even make money consigning it (KGJ tip - call The RealReal).  But what about your 80's gold necklaces, mom's old charm bracelet and your grandma's diamond brooch? Don't forget the ex-husband and ex-boyfriend jewelry. How do you scrap sentiment?

That’s where I come in. I started renewing pieces of jewelry for close friends a few years ago. Breathing new life into a piece so rich with old memories presented a challenge which required my full artistic and emotional skill set.  The transformative act often brought unexpected beauty through openness, even the opportunity for great happiness. Through collaborative private appointments, I’m able to help clients find a new beginning for symbolic jewelry pieces. I enjoy learning about rich family histories, which ultimately serve as the starting point for the renewal process.

Whatever you are working on now, your closet, your abs, your resume, or in my case – my website, I’m suggesting you consider renewed jewelry too. When you visit my refreshed kellygerber.com you will find new treasures, easy navigation and lots of great "stuff" to become heirlooms for your family.

Thru The Years

NEW WEBSITE KELLYGERBER.COM  COMING SOON....

So here it goes,  my next move to reach out to my clients, fans & friends and build my KGJ empire. Oh the paths we take...my careers in fashion, 80's NYC real estate, houseware biz with my Dad, (he an inventor and manufacuter of nonglamourous but useful wood products. Dad created the over the sink cutting board back in the 60's , as a kid I remember shrink packing cutting boards with the wires that pulled out over the sink. I think I have been working since I'm 12 years old.  I suppose high energy people are just that way, on the move. 

I always thought of myself as passionate, always passionate about something or someone. Pictures, now that is one of my forever passions. I love photos.  Now as we are aging which I choose to see thru my daughter, as I age I try hard not to dwell on the lines and differences in myself but to embrace them and smile.  The wisdom of the elder, ha, the knowledge, and all those memories in my heart combined with the photos telling the story, all to be grateful for.

The website kellygerber.com will soon be an easy updated site to capture your own memories as together we create tags to wear, to give to others and to celebrate holidays & special occasions. All those memories... thru the years.

Please bear with me as we have just begun the renovation of the site.  The current site is like the old blackberry while the rest of the world has the IPHONE 6. I  did love my blackberry...but it's time to move on!

Mention KG23 on the current site, I know you will have read this and receive 20% discount!

Here's to a new KGJ

Woman We Love Now - Dr. Jill Creighton

DR JILL CREIGHTON

KELLY'S "WOMAN WE LOVE NOW" PICK FOR THE FALL 2014 

AN AMAZING MOM WITH STYLE, LOOKS, COMPASSION FOR ALL CHILDREN AND OH YEAH BRAINS TOO....

Jill Creighton MD is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Stony Brook University Hospital and she is the Medical Director of their Ambulatory Pediatric Clinics. She lives in Quogue, NY. Dr. Creighton does her clinical work at Stony Brook's Outpatient Pediatric Clinic in Hampton Bays, NY. Dr. Creighton's other full time position is that of raising her own 4 children, ages 4, 6, 8 and 11.

Jill completed training at Mt Sinai School of Medicine in 1994. She attended Brown University, Graduating class of 1989. She specializes in clinical pediatrics and takes care of children aged newborn to 22 years old.

A huge portion of Jill's day is dedicated to kids, her patients then of course her own. She loves children, and describes her job "as a dream job". She feels blessed to care for the children of others but also blessed to spend time with her own children.

So when does this beautiful woman have time to herself? Well, barely ever, however she does manage to stay in great shape. It might be yoga, a spin class, or a beach walk with a good friend. With this inner and outer beauty it was easy to make Jill one of my favorite Fall 2014 busy working Mom's with style.

Beautiful Babies

One of my favorite things to do is look at photographs. Good thing too because I am swamped with hundreds of pics each year. In this day and age EVERYONE has a smart phone that has a camera. We used to miss "kodak" moments having to run for a camera in my childhood. Now clearly and fundamentally a big part of all our lives. Even a "selfie" seems to capture the moment. Here are a few of my favorite pics, from babies to wedding kids, to well dressed puppies.

Keep snapping pics, making memories and making dog tags! We can never have enough precious moments.

With charm,

Kelly

Moms with Style! Meet Rachel Graham

Yes it definitely helps to look good if you are 5'10" tall, in great shape &  a health coach . Rachel Graham founder of Live Healthy NYC is one of my favorite clients & more importantly friends. I love my mommy friends who are working women ageing gracefully in style. Rachel found what she is passionate about & is making a difference. I have seen some of her clients transformations... just amazing. With a new sense of self & security leading to a new sensibliity for style. Grateful to put on skinny jeans & a big new piece of jewelry!

Throw on mulitple necklaces, bracelets & rings on Rachel & somehow she pulls it off. I usually say..."Ok Rachel you know me, less is just less but in this case ...take 1 piece off!" We like to kid around, shop, have lunch & talk about our kids. As life goes by at  lightening speed ~ it is nice to take a breath and perhaps this year go a little bit slower. Enjoy good healthy food, good friends, good jewelry to help you look even better and give you great style!

Visit Rachel's blog LiveHealthyNYC.com for recipes & nutrition tips on looking & feeling great

For the love of kids & dogs!

My passion for photography, children & dogs continue. I have been fortunate enough to meet talented young artists in many areas of the arts. Today with the world moving so fast in all aspects of social media I need a tutor just to keep up with them. By the time I learn how to do one thing there's something else! 

I am collaborating with a fantastic team at the Barktorialist.com soon to launch an online store. It is so damn cute! These girls take fashion from the runway & bring to doggie life. With exquisite taste & style. What we must haves. I am honored to be on the "list" and we are about to take off.

Check out my new dog bone charms, cufflinks & some new dog tags that will go on your precious pet or your own neck.

Happy Fall everyone & stay tuned....we are going for a good walk in the park.

With charm,

Kelly

SUMMER LOVES

The long and the short of it is I am obsessed right now with my long charm necklace. My neck was starting to hurt so I took a few things off and fell in love with the simplicity of 2 mini military tags in sliver & LOVE the long way in gold & diamonds on a long gold ball chain. Although I do love collecting & adding new charms to my necklace! Maybe it's this crazy heat that makes us want to be light everywhere, even around the neck.

For summer loves we all think water~blue being my favorite color I defer to this with ease. Turquoise adds the pop of color we need to remind us how short & special our summers are. Add some long beaded turq necklaces or beaded bracelets & instant summer chic style! I'm also loving greens, there are so many beautiful stones to choose from. Greens in quartz, jade & semi precious are not pricey & look fabulous. Green is also the hot accessory color for Fall,  add some green with a chunky ring or big earrings for a new look. If you are like me & defer to neutrals, I wear a lot of white & beige in summer, green or blue is just the right touch of color.  I do love reds, oranges & pinks but  somehow it reminds me of how I feel about red nail polish...I like it better on other people than on myself!

It's a hot summer so look cool.

Enjoy it, it's the season that flies by~

Love,

Kelly
