Henley raw brass hexagon beads gold filled wire hoop earrings wood background monastera leaves minimal modern handmade jewelry

Meet Henley. She loves simplicity, geometric details + unique everyday jewelry. I like to say she’s pretty easygoing because she goes with everything.

She's my modern take on a classic hoop - ten tiny brass hexagon beads sit on a 1.75” gold-filled wire circle.

She’s delicate, but don’t let her fool you. She survived a dance party in Mexico. I test wore these hoops while on a work trip to Cancun in January + I accidentally pulled one out of my ear while dancing. The whole dance floor stopped dancing to help me look for them until our bartender saved the night + found it on the other side of the dance floor. It was a testament to just how loyal my coworkers are, just how cool Mexican bartenders are + just how resilient these Henley hoops are. 

Wear her like you would any other hoops, everyday, no matter the outfit. Here are a few of my IRL style ideas, but really any of your style ideas would work too. She’s that simple.

Model + Styling: Aislerchic // Photography: Meghan Medlen Photography


It was more than two years ago. It was one of those nights that I was vividly dreaming about styling my jewelry while looking through one beautifully curated feed after another on instagram. (I have a lot of those nights, if I’m being totally honest.) When I stumbled upon Aissa’s account (@Aislerchic), I instantly knew I wanted to work with her. It was clear to me that she knows how to wear colors, patterns and textures in ways that I just don’t think about. I followed her and I consistently oo-ed and aahh-ed (and liked!) her photos until I worked up the courage to ask her to collaborate.

I still remember the day I opened her email response and saw that she had said yes. I was new to the marketing-yourself-online world, I was going through a lot personally and my faith in just about everything was nonexistent. I smile just thinking about how our first collaboration made me feel like making jewelry was the right thing to be doing at the time, when everything else I was doing felt so wrong.

We just recently pulled off our second photoshoot together and I couldn’t be more excited to share our photos with you. Her energy, her style and her attention to detail made it all effortless, despite the distance. She handled everything, including finding a photographer (if you haven’t seen Meghan Medlen’s work then you’re missing out), and she frequently kept me in the loop about the timeline. She’s always open to new ideas, takes creative direction really well and successfully translated my inspiration into new, one of kind lifestyle content. Aissa and Meghan’s style is truly original, and you can see the love they have for their work in each photo. I receive so many lovely compliments every time I post them.

My heart is still so full. I hope you enjoy this Lookbook as much as we enjoyed collaborating.

Love, Light + Warm Cups of Chai Tea,

Short on time? Short on motivation? Throw a little self-care into your style choices.

When was the last time you took a moment for yourself? When you’re constantly on the go for your kids or your business or your day job, it’s easy to be so wrapped up in life, you lose sight of your joy. People rely on you, dreams need to be nourished, bills need to be paid. Your needs just aren’t a priority right now. I get it, babe, I really do.

Here’s the thing, though. The only way you can provide for your kids or your dreams or your job is if you make sure to provide for yourself first. You can’t give something you don’t have. And the only one who can take care of you the way you need to be taken care of while you’re constantly on the go is YOU.

Tap into some warm layers so you can feel (and share) joy more freely. Layer a puffy vest over your plaid shirt. Throw a cardigan over your favorite t-shirt. Wear a big blanket scarf with just about everything. Better yet, wear two big blanket scarves with just about everything.

Putting yourself first when making style choices is an easy yet empowering form of self-care. You can make any outfit YOURS simply by choosing things you want to wear because you want to wear them. When you put yourself first in this way, it’s fulfilling and authentic and a heck of a lot more joyful to take care of all the things.
