Britney's "Piece Of Me" video...

So, my jewels made it to set, but I can't really spot my stuff because they edited the scenes really short and fast! I did see one of my necklaces, on one of the dancers in the club, but it was so fast, I could barely see it! (My eyes were practically cross eyed while trying to find my stuff--it's like "Where's Waldo" in miniature!!)

Random bumping into a customer...

So I was in Nordstrom in San Francisco with my mom post-Christmas. I'm standing near the shoes, when I look over and recognize this guy! He bought my silver key necklace at the Qio party last week! At the party, he asked me if I had any jewelry for guys, and I said, "Yes, I DO!" and ran to the back room, grabbed the necklace, and sold it to him on the spot!!

So I run over to him and say, "Hey, you bought my silver key necklace at the Qio party last week!" He remembers, and we both talk about how weird it is that we ran into each other here...of all places!! Ahh...gotta love stuff like that!!

Maybe one day I will meet a cute, single, nice guy wearing my necklace whom I can approach! :)

This week makes up for last week!!

So...about it being soooo slow last week--this week certainly made up for it!! One of my new accounts--Qio--had a party last Thursday! It was nice to see some of my little jewels get snapped up and worn out into the world! The girls at Qio are so sweet, we have agreed to have them work as my sales rep in Japan!

They already landed me one account, an online store that also sells Victoria's Secret bath and body products! My friend Paul told me that Victoria's Secret have no freestanding stores in Japan, so their customers only buy online! The website is:

You can also see my jewelry at Qio (on the Westside) at 11614 West Pico Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90064. They also carry cult favorites such as Hysteric Glamour, Orthodox, and Corpus.

Some downtime...

Okay, usually during the holiday season, I'm inundated with numerous emails, calls, etc. regarding getting, buying, pulling, my jewelry! For some reason, this week has been slow, with ZERO appointments booked, nothing to drop off, etc. It's weird!!

I mean, the last few weeks did really run me over though...maybe I took care of everybody way in advance...? We'll see what happens next week!!

Well, at least I have taken this time to clean my apartment--which needing some serious cleanin' lovin'!!!

I have been feeling pretty antsy too...I think I've been stuck indoors here quite a bit, so I'm always looking for something to do...ANYTHING!!!

LA Times magazine!!

When I bought last sunday's issue, I was bummed to find out my necklace didn't make it in the print edition...I emailed my buyer telling her so, she wrote me that they chose the shot with my necklace for online only! They spelled my last name wrong, but that's okay, I'm used to it...Daco, Dako, Dayko, Dacoe, etc. Thank you Alisa for your support!! I'm glad we're both mentioned here! :)

So, of course at the most busiest time of year, I get sick, with some weird sore throat-fever-stuffy nose-runny nose-achy body-fever-mini flu. EW. It sucks!!! I had to push back all my errands and one meeting just to make sure it's out of my body before I start interacting with people! (I would hate for potential buyer #13 to get sick because of me!)

Thanks to my good buddy Paul, he set me up with a possible new account, a store on the westside called Qio. The girls there have asked me to participate in a jewelry event they are having this saturday, so I have to bring some serious A-game to hopefully continue a working relationship with their store!

So much to do......

Paris Hilton wearing my earrings!

So I was reading today, and they had a close up of Paris Hilton in her car...and for a brief moment I thought I saw the side of my earrings! After some intense research, I found more pics of her, and INDEED THEY ARE MY EARRINGS!! I called Diavolina to confirm that she bought them there, and I even found pics of her in the store! Anyways, the images are below...yesterday she wore them to her lunch with Nicole Richie, at her interview on the Ellen Show, and at a Nissan event tonight. Yay! The guy's face in the background of the third photo always cracks me up when I see it...ha ha ha!!

I'm a dork...

So one of the girls at Show Pony just emailed me and said I dropped off some gold wire teardrops, which I thought at the time were assembled earrings! She said they weren't assembled, they were just the teardrops! How embarrassing!! Oops!! :)

Maybe Britney...?

So Avril's stylist still has my jewelry, and she emailed me a couple days ago about getting more jewelry for Britney Spears' new video! Unfortunately I couldn't make it back to LA on time, but she said she would use the jewelry I gave her for the video...

And yes, it is the video Britney shot yesterday for only TWO HOURS. Ha!

Avril Lavigne wearing my earrings at the American Music Awards!

AAAH!! Avril wearing my gold triple studded wire teardrop earrings at her appearance at the 2007 American Music Awards! You know, it's funny, I've had those earrings for a long time--but no takers! Avril's stylist told me a while back that she is really into Fergie's style, hence her wearing big gold earrings recently! I'm so glad she chose these to wear with her little copper dress! Very exciting!

One thing leads to another...

So last week I participated in a 24hour Paper magazine shopping event last week, in conjunction with Show Pony. When Kime asked me to bring my jewels, I thought sure, why not? At least it'll get people looking at my stuff, and I'd rather it be out in the world being seen, than sitting at home in my apartment! The event was fun, I got to don my Jeremy Scott dress, and get photographed a lot, reconnect with Jeremy, and meet a TON of new people! Very fun.

So, a few days ago, I get a voicemail from Samantha at Fruition Las Vegas, saying she is very interested in my stuff, she had seen my jewelry at the Paper event, and wanted my line for her store! (She had a booth there too!) I call her back, totally surprised, but excited about the opportunity, and told her I would email her all my info and where she could see my stuff online! We email back and forth...then she calls me the other night to tell me she wants my stuff for a shoot on I had to Fedex it by Friday for Saturday delivery. We go through what she wants, and two of the pieces aren't made yet!!

So earlier today I ran myself downtown to pick up what I needed for the shipment. Several months ago, I missed the Fedex truck, and I cried to the stylist on the phone in the Kinko's parking lot--I've vowed never to miss the truck EVER AGAIN. (Thank goodness me and that stylist still work together!!) Today I furiously assembled each piece, it took about an hour for each one! But finally I made it to Kinko's right as the Fedex truck arrived, whew!

Something about shipping overnight freaks me out. I think something might happen, or they don't get the package...I always am on edge until I hear they have it. One time, I sent a package for my old boss, and the delivery was put on the recipient's door, and she never got it! And it was a ton of expensive jewelry too! That's why I always worry a little.

Well, I'm crossing my fingers that she likes my stuff and that it will sell! This is the first time her boutique will carry jewelry, so I'm excited I'm one of her first picks! You can see more info on the store at Exciting!!!

Making goodies for Avril...

Her stylist told me she's got a couple projects coming up...the American Music Awards, and her appearance on "Dancing With The Stars" I am furiously making some new stuff tonight and tomorrow that I hope she'll like! For some reason, my wrist started hurting an hour ago and I have to wear this wristband so I don't make it worse!!

I really like working late at night...just me in front of the tv, making jewelry, it's nice and quiet, and I barely have any distractions. Late at night is when I am most creative. During the day, I feel like I can't make (well, new) stuff because I have all this admin/office/shopping stuff to take care of too! Wow, it's about 3:36 am, I should get to bed!! Yummy sleep...

Finally!! A blog of my crazy career!!

So I've decided to finally blog about my career!! I think I just needed a place to really let my clients, my friends, my buyers, everybody, know more about me and my little jewelry line. What "wars" I have with it, what good and bad stuff happens in it! Also, I could chronologically document each and every event...hopefully it will keep my brain together??? I hope!! :)

Oops, forgot to mention that my jewelry can be viewed online via When it re-directs you to my online album, scroll down to see my necklaces, and be sure to click back on my name at the top to take you back to the main menu to see my earrings, bracelets, press, etc. Although on this blog, I will update press, and new jewelry pieces when they come! Yippee!!
