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.
(Pictured above is our ‘Cowgirl at Heart Necklace‘…)
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
It all started with a trip to the stables…
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 traveled down the road a bit to a nice spot over looking the ocean…
Wind blown hair and peace of mind during a perfect sunset…and Our ‘Pure Heart Necklace‘.
And as the golden rays cast away the day we celebrated… that ‘not all who wander are lost‘.
Until the next adventure…
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.
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!
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!

The new line has officially hit the store.
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.
We hope you are as in love with the new collection as we are… its been a joy to put together.
We have all new custom jewelry in at our store!!
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…
We’re quickly approaching Mother’s day, the ultimate Thanksgiving for our favorite women.
It is one of the few constant truths in life that nothing can be brought into this world with out a Mother. They are not only the giver of our life, but also our original mentor, caregiver, and guide in this world.
We have the perfect gift to help you say, “thanks” to Mom this Mother’s day.
Our “Love Always Bracelet” is the perfect representation for the unconditional type of love between mother and child.
Everything we are, would cease to exist without our Mother’s who brought us into this world.
Oh…the many faces of Nigel. Also known as Nigelicious, Fat Face and Angel of Love…(AOL for short).
For those of you who don’t already know him, allow me to introduce our brand mascot Mister Nigel. Heather’s Old English Sheepdog…
And then of course there is Bonnie. Bonnie-Bell…who is not so amused at all by all the ruckus of the younger dogs here. She is a bit of an grumpy old lady…but we love her just the same.
All of us here at Island Cowgirl are dog lovers to the maximum degree. We believe dogs are just angels in dog costumes…and we love having them around. They make us laugh, give us a nice break in the day and most of all they are wonderful snugglers. Most of us have become impervious to dog slobber & dog hair…as a requirement of the job.
We are so blessed to work in a space that we can have our favorite animals running free, and stopping by to pay us little visits at our desks.
So much of our jewelry is influenced by this love of furry friends.
One of our favorites is our ‘Fur is Love’ Bracelet. It’s the perfect little ode to your best friend.
Dogs bring a smile to our faces and on a tough day… just make the world a little bit better.
If you are a dog lover, you know what we mean.
Wags and Kisses,
Island Cowgirl & Nigel-icious
What an amazing smile… right?
This is Cecilia. A friend of hers passed along her inspirational story and I am humbled to share it with you.
On July 4th 2010, when Cecilia was 17 years old she and her brother Joe were in a terrible and devastating car accident while heading home from their family farm. At some point during the drive the car lost control and in spite of Joe’s attempt to take control of the wheel the car spun out, and crashed in to a tree.
Cecilia, still conscious after the accident found her self cemented between the crushed steel of the car. Her legs were completely stuck and she looked over to the driver’s seat to see her brother Joe left completely unconscious, and his jaw entirely detached from his face.
Frightened and in shock, a sense of hope finally arrived with a team of firemen and paramedics. Their parents also made it to the scene, but were urged to go immediately to the hospital while the firemen worked on Cecilia and her brother Joe.
Cecilia remembers talking to her mother at the scene…
“She was going like hold on, it’s going to be alright, ” remembers Cecilia. “We’ll meet you in St. Louis and I was like Mom, don’t leave me. Don’t leave me here. And she had to go.”
It took two long and arduous hours to pry free Cecilia’s mangled legs from the strong steel of the vehicle. Once they were free from the car, both brother and sister were air lifted to the hospital. That night Cecilia was told that her brother Joe was most likely not going to make it, and if she did make it that her legs would probably have to be amputated.
Joe went into a coma, while Cecilia endured four surgeries in which she had 4 titanium rods and over 30 metal screws placed into her legs and right ankle. She then slowly began her journey on the road to recovery, with a great deal of physical therapy and rehabilitation.
Her tremendous courage pushed her to persevere through all that she faced. Cecilia always had a great love for singing and for riding horses. She sang through out her treatment and dreamed of one day being able to get back on her horse and go riding…
Her brother eventually came out of his coma 2 months after the accident, and is by some miracle on the long road to recovery, with minor memory difficulties.
After a year-long journey, with her will to overcome immense obstacles and the support she received from family and friends she is not only walking, but she is also saddling and riding her horse!
She wears our bracelet etched with the old cowgirl saying, ‘Always saddle your own horse’, as a constant reminder of what she has accomplished since her accident.
Thank you to Cecllia, her family and friends for sharing this incredible story with us… We make our jewelry to inspire others…but a lot of times it goes the other way around…others inspire us with their strength, fortitude and reverie.
Ride on Cecillia…
Peace, Love & Horses,
