It's been said that this summer is the summer of nightgown dressing; some say (moi) that it long the summer (and winter) of nightgown dressing. Sometimes a nightgown enthusiast (moi) is in need of a nighttime garment that is not in fact a nightgown. Now, this can truly present one with a dilemma! Stumped on how to attire without looking tired? Get thee to the Catbird Dream Closet!

Can you tell us a bit about what you do? I specialize in our Wedding and Engagement collection :) I help people navigate the sometimes tricky task of finding that perfect engagement ring for their loved one or that perfect wedding band (or wedding stack!) to pair with their own ring. The funnest part of my job is taking photos of different ring pairings for people!
How many rings do you wear daily? Usually something around 15.
Jewels that are on your wishlist? O man, all of the rings! The Snow Queen Ring (I've been dreaming of this one for years!), the Aika Ring, the Marrakech Band and the Nora Ring are a few that are on my wish list.
Favorite thing about New York? The diversity of cultures and personalities, and the food :)
Favorite Brooklyn spot? Prospect Park, especially the lake! It's so amazing to be able to escape into nature every once in a while.
Favorite ritual? I recently discovered how insanely amazing facial massages are! A quick 5 minute massage in the morning really wakes me up and also really helps with my sinuses when my allergies are bothering me :) I also apparently hold a ton of tension in my jaw and neck so a little massage every morning feels so amazing!
Drink of choice? Bubble tea, this tea cocktail from a bar that closed down but I have the recipe :), or a Mezcal Old Fashioned
This weekend we're eating mini cannolis and walking around the neighborhood, buoyed by a very close read of The Remnants of La Dolce Vita in Brooklyn’s Italian Williamsburg. Pictured above, local cannolis eaten in the very intensive R&D for our own Holy Cannoli.
A quiet morning with Rawan & Bella in Rawan's floral studio, just down the street from our HQ. We've been friends with Rawan for years, she's done flowers at many of our events, and we were so happy to meet baby Bella (who LOVES the camera)!

Hometown: Cd. Juarez, Chihuahua. Mexico
Fun Fact: I’m ambidextrous.
Describe your style in 3 words: Passionate, stubborn, & ambitious.
Who are your Moon & Stars (A, E & T)? My moon is Angel, my husband. We’ve been happily married for almost 7 years. My stars are my two kids, Enzo is 3 years old and Thiago just turned 1.
How did you get into jewelry? I went to the University of Texas at El Paso to get a degree in art but when I took a Metalsmithing course to fulfill my class schedule, I fell in love with it. I find jewelry fascinating and I see all jewelry as walking sculptures that are exposed everywhere by anyone.
Favorite weekend activity? It used to be watching movies but now that I have kids, I enjoy a lot more going to the park, or the zoo when the weather is nice and museums during the winter.
Jewels that are on your wishlist? A new ring that we are about to launch but i can’t disclose it yet. Stay tuned, it will be released soon. I also love all the new charms: spider, shells... I want all of them!!!
Calder on exhibit at Wave Hill in the 70s
going to Wave Hill to see the flowers in early blossom (magnolias! spring snowflakes!) and then driving to Arthur Avenue for Italian sandwiches, arancini, and affogato. Bedside table heaving with new books to thumb through including but not limited to As They Were by M.F.K. Fisher, After Many a Summer Dies the Swan by Aldous Huxley, and Alexander Lieberman's The Artist in His Studio (a title that would not fly today).
And what are your plans, dear swans and kittens?
