“I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers…”
Fall in Leipers Fork by far my very favorite time of the year. The heat is lifted, the braids come out of my horses manes and the flies start to go off duty. It is glorious.
The horses also get a little more spring in their step. Pretty much the only downside is Mr. or Mrs. skunk that likes to reside under the barn begins his/her mating season. And you know who loves to chase skunks? Because he thinks they look like kitty cats. You guessed it. Nigel.
I don’t need to tell you how that story ends.
Our Corset Ring is perfect for fall
We all love our dogs…even when they smell like skunks (well mostly).
The Love Has Paws Bracelet & Unconditional Love Ring
Our Cowgirl Up Necklace complete with snaffle rings and a big heart
Skunk Boy Nigel wants a snuggle…any takers?
Some of the up cycled artwork that is so popular at our Island Cowgirl store in Marathon Village. If you happen to be in Nashville come by and say howdy…we have the works of over 100 artists here…as well as my entire line of jewelry. We are loving these inspirational wood signs…they are a big hit with our customers.
…a good mantra for today…our Great Things Lie Within Necklace..also a great gift for Graduation…
So…you learn a lot when you live on a farm. Not the least of which is that cream colored rugs have no business being anywhere in your life. Not with two horses and a dog. And mud. And hay. And dirty boots.
I was in love with this vintage rug that I got in Turkey…It was just the right amount of faded and vintage blue. For about 2 months. Then it slowly turned a brownish grey with dirt stains. And then it was pretty much done. I folded it up and replaced it with something more practical. Continue reading

peace, love & horses,
The Twisted Peace Necklace!
The long chocolate leather cord makes this necklace the perfect piece for this fall season, because of how nicely it lays over scarves and chunky sweaters!
You can also layer this necklace with other shorter necklaces for more of a statement look.
Make sure to check in regularly for our pick of the week!
We’re super excited because….Island Cowgirl is now styling looks on Polyvore!

How are you dressing up your fall attire?
We’re digging chocolate leather pieces with silver accents…like this ‘Love & Peace Necklace’….
Layering is always a fun part of fall fashion, why should it end with your clothing? Our ‘protect this cowgirl’, ‘follow your faith’ and the ‘courage my love boho wrap’ compliment each other perfectly.
& 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.
The new line has officially hit the store.
It includes entirely new pieces, fun spins on classic favorites and a whole bunch of gold!
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…
We hope you are as in love with the new collection as we are… its been a joy to put together.
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
This is my friend Katie. I met her years ago at the dog park. Our dogs grew old together…and over the years and through our early morning talks in our pajamas…we became friends.
Now you have to meet Katie to understand her wonderfully, wild spirit. Her laugh is contagious. She is crazy funny. And her smile lights up a room. She is fiercely loyal and eternally optimistic. Everyone loves Katie.
Katie & I have been through boyfriends, husbands, break ups, break downs and lost friendships. But she always held strong. She is one of the bravest souls I know. So when her roommate of 5 years and her boyfriend of 2 years simultaneously screwed her over both in the same week….she picked up & moved to San Diego. Ballsy. Her life was here. But off she went.
Well, Katie ended up meeting the love of her life by following her heart. And Katie is getting married to the man of her dreams.
Here is the ring I designed for her….A 2 carat, flawless emerald cut diamond set in platinum. A bit more contemporary than my normal designs…but she wanted something clean & simple. And Katie was getting what she wanted. She waited a long time for her prince charming and left a trail of frogs behind her…and she deserves only the best…
I cannot wait to dance at your wedding. I love you girl.
