This bracelet is one of the most unique pieces of jewelry that I own and is one of the most beautiful pieces as well! The hand painted details are gorgeous and the old world romantic feel is priceless. Plus, the shipping was fast, in great shape, and working with Temple was lovely!
Jewelry inspired by Paris
There's something about Paris...
Paris is a woman and She calls to all women. She is mature, yet forever young. She is beautiful, confident, self-assured, and sensual. She does not give a shit about being politically correct. She's all about the Diva. And She demands that every woman revel in her own femininity.
I am a lifelong lover of Paris who decided to create my conception of the perfect souvenir Parisienne: something a woman can wear with anything/everything and anywhere; something colorful and unique; something that makes a woman feel beautiful and effortlessly chic; something that captures the sensuality of Paris and the woman who wears it; something that is timeless, yet is an ode to a bygone era.
SISTAH was born out of my desire to capture that sensual-feminine-feeling-Parisienne in a manner that would allow me to 'carry' it with me always. I wear one of my bracelets, earrings, and/or pendants everyday. And when I do, I really do feel beautiful, feminine, and chic. It's a wonderful feeling and I want each woman, who wears one of my bracelets, to feel effortlessly fabulous too. When you wear one of my bracelets, you are wearing a piece of Paris.
My Parisian inspired fine art photography has opened new avenues and opportunities:
*My Paris photography has been featured in the annual France edition of 'Romantic Homes Magazine' (2011 & 2012).
*It was my joy and honor to be staff writer and photographer for the Paris based "Belle Inspiration Online Magazine," where I also wrote a regular feature-photo-vignette: "Postcards to and from Paris." My articles are archived there and I have continued my series on my blog.
**Exciting news, SISTAH is now in brick & mortar boutique:
- Robins Nest 220 3rd Street, Geneva, Illinois

Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
I am the owner, designer and sole employee of Temple Designs. While that means that my diva-creative-muse runs free, it also means that the intensive time consuming processes that allows me to create my singular jewelry, requires me to take a bit more time than a larger cookie-cutter operation. Thus, it usually takes me 3 days (from the time of order) to create your bracelet, earrings and fine art photography. My turn around time is usually very speedy, but it will take a minimum of 5 days until your bracelet, earrings, or fine art photography reaches your mailbox. Understandably, international orders will require a few days more. Of course, if you need your selection faster, convo me and we'll make it happen.
