…nigel-kringle…

photo bomb

We had so much fun doing our holiday shoot this year…We had a lovely, wonderful model, great inspirational jewelry stacked up high, some holly for good cheer….and of course Nigel photo-bombing the whole shoot.

This included doling out kisses to our model, hiding his well worn tennis ball in the wreath of holly and just generally sticking his nose in pretty much every picture. He even smiles for the camera…such a ham, it was impossible to do anything but laugh. And throw the tennis ball and snap as many pictures as possible before he came bounding back into the shot.

…halloween @ the store…

hall1

There were so many fun halloween festivities this year we’re still reminiscing…

hall2

Its a Halloween tradition to pass out candy from our flagship store front, on Main Street in Huntington Beach. All of the local business partake in this huge event that brings the community together and allows the little kiddos to come out dressed up to trick or treat!

hall6

We saw some of the cutest little tots strolling for candy. This itty bitty crew composed of snow white, the evil queen and their monkey friend was one of our absolute favorites. They were so sweet and excited.

hall4

The kids weren’t the only ones having the fun. Our next door neighbor from the salon came as a head turning ‘Marge’ from the Simpsons. It was quite the get-up! She had everyone smiling and laughing

hall5…and of course it wouldn’t have been a true family holiday with out grandma Sheila and our furry kids. Bonnie was sneaking up from behind to steal some candy (the usual).

It was another wonderful holiday spent as an Island Cowgirl family.

…did you have a question?…

We have a few frequently asked questions here at Island Cowgirl…
we want to make sure we answer any questions our customers have because, well, we love you!

ICSIGN

so here is a quick Q & A on a couple of common questions…

People often want to know…

Do you do repairs? The answer is yes! We love how much our customers enjoy rocking their favorite Island Cowgirl piece or pieces… and when you wear something daily ware and tare happens… Mail us your damaged piece  with the repair form and we will be sure to fix it up and get it back to you ASAP. Typically we charge $10 for leather restringing…and everything else is on a case by case basis. We will phone you and let you know how much your repair will cost.

Can I have something from IC customized? You sure can! We try to size our bracelets and necklaces on an average scale, but we can often make exceptions! Most of our leather and pieces can be made larger or smaller or switched from leather to chain… and vise versa! The best way to find out if we can customize something the way you would like it is to call our studio @ (714) 963-6200! 

chainandleather

How will my IC order be shipped? With tender love and care OF COURSE, in our special Island Cowgirl Packaging. We use UPS ground. If you need something in a big hurry please select our expedited shipping options upon checkout. We offer UPS ground, 3 day, 2 day or Overnight.  We unfortunately DO NOT ship to PO Boxes.

horsesandfeathers1

This new line has been in the works for a while now and it’s so exciting to see all of the ideas come to life.

From a sketch book, to a wax mold to actual castings and assembly each detail was given personal attention.

Our leather word bracelets have always been a IC fan favorite so… what did we do?! We brought you more! New words of inspiration to love and stack!

And for our golden girls… we’ve had gold on our minds for a while and the timing was right for it to become a reality.

Mixing the silver and gold is another one of our new favorite looks…

…happy 5 years to us!…

anniversary-1
Me & my girls! Thanks to my great staff for all the hard work! (Aren’t they cute?)

My heart is full right now. And my customers are the greatest. I just wanted to put that out there.

Last week we had a shindig at our little store by the sea to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. We spent the day making sure everything was just perfect..we had gift baskets to pack and cakes to pick up and little gourmet appetizers to make…it was a group project to be sure…and all of my awesome employees were there to help.

Our goal was to make this a great thank you party to everyone who has supported us over the years. It was important to me that if someone took time out of their life to show up…that they were not disappointed. I believe each moment of everyone’s life is precious.

What really blew me away was how I ended up going away with more gifts than I feel we gave. A friend of mine, Bronny Dainiels, who is also a professional photographer was there snapping pictures of all of our goodies when I arrived. She managed to, completely unasked and unsolicited,  captured the spirit of our whole evening…start to finish. And the photos were in my inbox when I woke up.

Customers brought me flowers. They brought me heartfelt handmade cards. Food. Cupcakes. (Rice Krispies cupcakes which were gone in a flash…don’t worry…I am getting the recipe for all of you) Bottles of wine.

anniversary-4But most of all they shared stories with me. Stories of how they gave Island Cowgirl Jewelry as a gift to someone who needed inspiration. Stories of the artists they had discovered at the store and how much that meant to them. I heard over and over again…”We are so glad you are in Huntington Beach…we love your store so much”. Wow. Their overwhelming spirit of generosity was amazing.

One wonderful customer, when she learned that a portion of the days sales were going toward Sunkissed Acres Equine Rescue bought even more. Including a big wood starfish that she would have hand carry on the plane the next day on her trip back home to Florida. But she wanted to help the horses.

annivarsary-6The last gift basket of the evening was raffled off at 9PM. It went to a woman whose elderly mom had been there earlier. She said her mother often bought Island Cowgirl jewelry for her on her birthday…but that tonight she was a little short on funds and could not buy anything, but that she wanted to be at the party tonight to help us celebrate.

Her daughter had come back to the store in hopes that her mom may win the gift basket…because it would mean so much to her. And she did. I told her it was meant to be…anniversary-3And so everyone went home happy on this fine spring night…Me with my full heart. My peeps. And the horses. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Peace, Love & Horses,
