All about the stones
Jamie Joseph Jewelry Trunk Show at Kiki
Jamie Joseph Jewelry has that rare vibe that's both eclectic and polished. And this week you'll get a glimpse of the newest and greatest creations from an artisan whose work has graced the pages of Vogue, Elle and In Style right here in River Ranch at Kiki.
"The one of a kind pieces are always exciting," says Kiki Frayard. "Jamie and her husband Jeremy find some really rare and unusual stones. Interesting and organic shapes."
For the duo, the process is all about the stones. Their vision focuses on bringing light, shape and an organic framework to the stones. While there's clearly a brilliant penchant for design as the cornerstone of the brand, their work truly reflects the beauty they find in stones. For some reason their approach reminds me of that old adage of you wearing the dress, never let the dress wear you. They let their stones speak for themselves.
While fans of Jamie Joseph include powerhouse celebs like Naomi Watts, Kate Beckinsale and Cameron Diaz, it's Lafayette's own powerhouse of all things accessory — Kiki — whose opinion we needed to hear on the best pieces at this trunk show.
"The hot stone of the moment — emerald. And always watermelon tourmaline," Kiki says.
Head out Friday and Saturday to check out the Jamie Joseph Trunk Show at Kiki.

DEC 4 This post on Philebrity, an arty Philadelphia blog, previews the lecture Bobby Jindal gave last night in the City of Brotherly Love. Sadly, not a lot of love headed Bobby's way in this post, which indicates a level of disdain for our Guv generally limited to residents of our lovely state.
DEC 4 The NOLA Defender blog goes old-school next year, this post tells us. The blog, which features news and extensive arts coverage, will publish free print versions quarterly, the story says. In a business that seems to be heading away from the printed version, it is nice to see that going the other way for a change.
DEC 4 There's another story on state employee abuse of public credit cards in the news, and blogger CB Forgotston has the solution: get rid of them. We don't need them; it's more work without them to accomplish what you need to accomplish, but what's wrong with that, CB wants to know. The legislature needs to pass a law forbidding the things, he says.
DEC 4 Here's one of two recent posts on the Lens about spending at two charter school operations in New Orleans. This one is about training for less than 200 KIPP employees in Vegas -- which cost nearly $120,000. That's $120,000, with six figures. The other operation was the Friends of King schools, which sent the staff, including eight of nine board members, to a retreat at the beach. That cost $70,000. So far, the Lens is the only media covering this. One wonders if that would be the case if this level of spending had happened in a public school operation.
DEC 4 In the effort to lay blame for our disappearing coast, a board charged with protecting our coast voted to sue the US Army Corps of Engineers Tuesday, this story on NOLA.com says. One suit will seek to force the corps to pay for damage caused by the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet project, and the other will seek to force the corps to pay for a levee system in Algiers on the West Bank. Interesting.
DEC 4 Thanks to blogger Robert Mann's Facebook page, we know about this story in the Washington Blade, which says that the Louisiana National Guard has decided to process same-sex partner benefits. The story was posted Tuesday, following an interview with a guard chief by the Blade. That same day, the Advertiser ran this story, which said Louisiana is still a hold-out on same sex benefits. So which story is correct?
DEC 4 One Alabama fan shot another dead, this WWL story tells us, because she didn't feel the other fan was upset enough about Alabama's loss to Auburn. The women were at a party, and the dead lady, mom to three children, was joking with other party-goers about the loss, which didn't sit well with the shooter, the story says. Police think alcohol might have been a factor. Ya think?
