Soft chocolate leather, combined with heartfelt charms, results in the perfect Island Cowgirl piece. Each token is etched with its own romantical saying. Check out all of our pieces and find an item with the sentiment that matches your own loving feeling!
Every woman has a cowgirl side, whether its out there in the open or some where deep inside their heart.
Because being a cowgirl is about so much more then just riding horses, and knowing the lay of the land. It’s about the strength that comes from the soul, as tough as boot leather when times get rough. Having humility from knowing you’re just a small part of a much grander plan. It is when a woman feels a wide open space and is comfortable with where she stands.
These pieces were all influenced by a love for the country and the majestic beauty of horses… perfect necklaces to show off your inner cowgirl spirit. Free as an unbridled horse running wild.
The is so much inspiration to be found in the country life style, from the iconic lucky horseshoe symbol, to the classic mantras of old time cowgirls… like, “worship your wild soul“…. “always saddle your own horse” and so many more… sayings to live by and learn from!
PS. Always remember to always embrace your inner cowgirl
Did I forget to mention lots and lots of horse play…?
Time spent with a horse is more then just fun…. it feeds your ‘faith‘ it brings out a ‘strength‘ in you that you didn’t know you had…you learn about your self, but more then anything, you learn to trust and respect.
Stepping out of the stables and back to work…
We quickly realized boots go with just about anything… but they look especially good next to our ‘reliquary‘ and ‘big dream‘ bracelets…
We traveled down the road a bit to a nice spot over looking the ocean…
& The more rings the better… well at least we think so here at IC…
We have rings for every style crosses, peace signs, hearts and horse shoes.
Accessorizing for the seasons is one of life’s many great joys.
Don’t fall behind this season, stay on top of your boho style game with rustic yet feminine jewelry.
Introducing our newest baby cowgirl Abbot Kinney (Abbey for short)
She is such a little ball of fur. Nigel is still acclimating to having a baby hanging around the studio, but he seems to be warming up to the idea of having a new friend.
I mean look at that smile on his face he’s obviously enamored by her cuteness.
It’s our love of animals that serves for so much inspiration in the creative process here at Island Cowgirl. You look at a pair of furry, wet nosed angels like this and you cant help but think “fur is love” or have the phrase “unconditional love” come to mind.
Too precious. Especially with the 90 pound weight difference…. they are just the funniest pair. We’re all smiling ear to ear around here.
Heres hoping we could pass our smile on to you. XOXO
We are starting a new tradition here at Island Cowgirl, were calling it the monthly get-away… we are going to take you on a journey with our jewelry to a destination fitting the jewelry’s inspiration. Our August style is called the Boho Beach Babe….
We went on an boardwalk beach cruiser adventure… a little trip to the beach. We played in the sand and surf taking photos of our jewelry in its natural element… by the seaside.
I know it sounds silly to some to celebrate a dogs birthday. But around here…we embrace silly.
Three years ago today Nigel was born somewhere in Missouri. I wasn’t looking for a puppy at all. A puppy was the furthest thing from my mind.
For six months prior I had been nursing my Old English Sheepdog Dougal back to health. He was 10 1/2 years old and had broke his back. I had had him since he was six weeks old and he was born blind. He was the light of my life and my constant companion. On August 13th Dougal crossed over the rainbow bridge.
To say I was devastated was an understatement. My heart broke into a million pieces and for some reason losing this silly dog really took me out at the knees. I cried. Everyday. For months. Now I am not a big crier. I hardly ever cry. In fact I sometimes go years without shedding a tear.
But when I lost Dougal I cried so much that two months later I ended up in urgent care with such a severe sinus infection that I could not breathe through my nose or my mouth. Big problem. The Doctor said “you really need to stop crying…why don’t you get another dog..”.
Dumb idea. How could I? It was too soon. I couldn’t do that. That was crazy. But then along came Nigel. And when I first saw his face…somehow it felt right. And he was born the same day Dougal died. I felt that was a sign. We were meant to be.
Nigel has healed me in places where I was broken. I love him to pieces and every year on this day…It is hard. I am so profoundly grateful for Nigel…and I am so profoundly sad at the loss of Dougal. And such is life…We love and we lose and we learn to love again…
Dougal N. Kraty 12/24/99-08/13/10
This was my dog Dougal. I loved him like nobody’s business.
He was blind but he saw with his heart. He ate rocks as a baby, so his teeth were chipped. But he still had the most beautiful smile and the courage of a lion.
His favorite two things in the world were going to the park and his Grandma Sheila. He loved tummy rubs, car rides and Pugsley’s. He made me smile every single day for 10 1/2 years. That’s a lot of love when you think about it all added up. Love times infinity.
He’s gone now…and I can still hear the sound of him not being here. I will always miss you Doodle-bug.
Say howdy to our little studio family, well most of it anyways…
This is a little peak at our behind the scenes of what we do here at Island Cowgirl… working hard and putting a little bit of love into every design.
We have such a wonderful & committed team, it is such a blessing to show up to this little creative home every week.
We get to see fluffy faces like this….
However, you can count on a guilt trip from Miss Bonnie if you don’t plan on sharing your lunch! Who could say no to those eyes?
We are constantly in the building process in the studio, whether it be making the actual jewelry its self, shooting out emails, taking/making phone calls, photography, and of course playing sprinkler monster with Nigel.
Work for many people is simply a means to an end… or it just fills up the daily space. We are proud to say we love our work family and we will strive to maintain this awesome experience in the studio, just as we will continue to strive to bring you our version of cool boho jewelry.
We went a little bead crazy, necklaces and bracelets are strung with all sorts of gorgeous stones. Several of our new one of a kind necklaces were inspired by the rosary style, they can be worn as a normal necklace also.
We have super cute, funky, original one of a kind silver bracelets…
Each of our beaded bracelets is so detailed! Each stone was individually selected for its specific tone and shape, and every charm was selected to accent each unique color palate to create the perfect beaded charm bracelet.
Stop in to our Flagship store located on Main Street in Downtown Huntington Beach to get a closer look… or call in the speak with one of our sales people directly about purchasing these gorgeous one of a kind pieces…
I was speaking to a friend today who never goes on vacation. Ever. In fact she never leaves NYC unless she is going for work. She has lived there for her whole life.
I asked her how she was doing…and she said. “Fabulous. I am going to Rome & Croatia today.” I started laughing….”Really…ok…wow…I am so proud of you…you will love Rome. You have to live your life. Sometimes we leave things that we want to do for “later”. And then “later” we are too old and too feeble. Or life gets in the way and later never comes. No one wants to do Rome in a walker.”
She said to me…”Yes. Finally I get. My later is not tomorrow anymore. My Later is Right Now.”…
I thought that was brilliant.
My Later is Right Now.
Not when I have time. Not when it is more convenient. Not next year. Right. Now. I have officially adopted this policy as of today.
