O Christmas Tree

As the year winds down and we look forward to 2017, we want to take a moment to thank each of you for supporting small business this year. We’re appreciative of each of one of you!

Our very favorite part of the holiday season (next to spending it with friends and family) is the Christmas tree itself. Snuggling up next to it, wine glass in hand, cozy blanket over our lap and view of the Pacific Ocean from our window is simply the perfect way to spend a night in December. No matter how late the work day—and during the holidays, it can be pretty late—we head straight home and sit beside the tree. It’s also become a personal tradition to keep it up as long as possible.

We have full, thankful hearts and we hope that you also had a happy, blessed holiday season. See you in the new year!

A Bicoastal Kind of Holiday

This year has been a flurry around our studio. The CMD team celebrated many milestones (11 years in business! Successful booths at the NY Now and Dwell on Design shows! Our TRI collection debut!). As we wind down 2016 and look forward to a new year, we must take a moment to reflect on our phenomenal, bicoastal CMD staff.

In just one year, we’ve gone from two to seven staff members. Each member of the CMD is a perfect complement to the team: from the extroverts chatting with clients in The Showroom to our behind-the-scenes production artist extraordinaires, we’re beyond proud to be a staff of all women (and one awesome dude) —each one smart, driven, hilarious and creative.

And a big shout out to our New York team, who are holding down the fort in our second production space. These gals may be 3000 miles from our SF headquarters, but they’re dedicated to our brand and our mission. They were thrown right into the mix, and long-time CMD veteran Aryana was an amazing mentor and teacher on the east coast. It warms my heart how thoughtful they each are. We simply couldn’t do it without them!

Are you celebrating far-away loved ones this season? We’d love to hear about it in the comments below.

Gift Guide: Under $150

‘Tis the season to surprise and delight your loved ones with thoughtful, handcrafted gifts! Searching for a special present that won’t break the bank? Look no further than the CMD guide to gifts under $150.

Thick individual cuffs are a recent addition to our collection, and we love the way they look solo and layered on top of one another. Choose from four finishes (silver, yellow gold, oxidized silver or rose gold) for the perfect stocking stuffer, or buy multiples to create an individualized stack.

An excellent everyday piece, our mini rose gold pebble necklace is delicate and versatile, but don’t mistake it for ordinary. The mixed metals and hammered design are unique and unexpected. (And a guaranteed pleaser for ladies of any style.)

Our rose gold stria studs deliver a beautiful, shiny finish. They also rotate and can be worn at any angle desired. Does your Secret Santa typically wear multiple earrings? These studs fit perfectly in a second hole and pair effortlessly with other designs.

If you need holiday shopping assistance, just drop us a note or give us a ring. We’re always happy to help!

Gifts for all your gals

For the show-stopping girl who loves to make a statement, we suggest our long TRI-toned arc necklace. This versatile piece is available with a silver, yellow or rose gold chain, and the TRI combination of metals in the center is customizable. This draping necklace pairs with absolutely any ensemble, and it’s just bold enough to become a conversation starter (but we know whomever you gift this to is fully capable of striking up a convo on their own).

Looking for a unique gift that will delight any style? Our large TRI-toned stillo pull-through hoops are a lightweight, effortless look that fit seamlessly into every wardrobe. If you’re not sure whether your special someone prefers gold or silver, we say gift them both…and add a dash of oxidization (the black metal) to be on the safe side! These earrings are perfect for an office maven who rocks a pantsuit, or a free-spirited bohemian who spends her day in printed maxi dresses.

Do you want to give something special, but are at a loss for the right present? We suggest our 7-stack TRI-toned square stack. These (lucky) seven rings are eye-catching with their square design, and we promise they’re the most comfortable rings she’ll ever wear. While some like to stack ‘em up on one finger, others like to split them among different fingers for an individual look. A gift of stacked rings is a guaranteed pleaser.
