R.I.P. Bea Arthur

I was supposed to put that post up weeks ago and never got to it as I got knocked up by my husband (on purpose) and have been practically bedridden with morning sickness. Quite sadly as many of you know, during this time Bea Arthur passed away. I am only one of the hundred of thousands of bereft fans. Now I have more than one reason to wear my Dorothy necklace. That is, to glorify AND commemorate. With this sad news I bring the happy news of the premiere of Anomaly’s new collection THE GIRLS.

The Girls

I have had a life long obsession with the 80’s program The Golden Girls. If you have not seen it, you MUST as it is timeless. It is on the WE Channel from 5- 8pm (a veritable marathon of the GIRLS). So, in order to get my fix and pay a little homage to the fabulous women who made the Golden Girls possible, I am currently working on a collection called “The Girls”. It has crests beholding each of the ladies’ faces and names on the show (AND STAN!!!). I have meticulously carved each of their faces in wax (see photos) with ornate decorations surrounding them. I did this with the pin you see sitting beside them. There will be banners declaring their names running across each crest. I can’t tell you how excited I am about these new pieces and I will announce with pride to you all once they are finished.

Itty Bitty Collection

So my favorite part of owning and operating a jewelry business is MAKING the jewelry for the first time. I have just finished the newest collection of jewels for Anomaly in the springtime. The collection is called Itty Bitty and was made for the frugal. They are little in size but huge in spirit. Behold:


New addition to the Fawn Collection

There's a new addition to the Fawn collection! I just made these Fawn stud earrings to round out the necklace-heavy collection. You can get them on my website soon and on Etsy now.

Showroom New York

Anomaly Jewelry was just accepted into Showroom New York (an exclusive showroom for New York City designers)!

I don't know what else to say here. Help a girl out.


Check out a couple of new earrings just made and listed on Etsy.

I cast the baby fang tooth from my now 7 year old chihuahua named Pony to make these delicate and ferocious earrings.

The second new piece is titled "Tied Up Post Earrings".

Hope you like them!


Zodiac: Killer!

Here's our most recently finished collection from late '08 all in one place. This collection began when we made the baby for Scorpio (little girl with lobster arms/scorpion arms). Without any intention of more baby zodiacs, people started begging for their own signs. Anomaly buckled and now we have all 12 months represented. The Zodiac Kidz are all on our site for your buying pleasure.


New cute animal jewelry

Here's a sneak peek at what's new for anomaly in '09: a collection that includes the most adorable motley crew of animals ever.

  • New Tiny (and very reasonably priced!) Fawn - Very similar to our Standing Fawn, but posed differently, sized differently and priced differently!
  • Swans In Love - just in time for Valentine's Day!! Almost too cute
  • Squirrel & Acorn - We are surrounded by them at Anomaly Jewelry's home base in NYC. Rather than think of them as pests, Anomaly chooses to glorify them in silver and gold-plated silver!
  • Pig Head - Just 'cause.
All of these can be found and purchased on www.AnomalyJewelry.etsy.com. In about a week they will also be listed on our regular website www.anomalyjewelry.com.


Invade My Privacy

Here's an inside look at what we surround ourselves with in the studio. Happy snooping...


Anomaly celebrity sightings

Actress, comedian and Air America talk show host Janeane Garofalo is apparently a fan of Anomaly's jewels. She purportedly owns every deer related piece available according to a reliable source (Peggy, the owner of East Village jewelry boutique The Shape of Lies)! Here's a photo of her enjoying the huge sitting fawn necklace.

Anomaly Jewelry is featured in its first rock video!!

The artist is Lenka and the song is “The Show”. Look for the Huge Sitting Fawn Necklace in the scene where she is riding her bicycle. Also look for the Rhinestone Cowboy earrings she wears in her date scene (through many scenes until she brushes her teeth).
What an adorable song and video. Check it out here (YouTube won't allow me to embed it in this post).

Lenka wears Anomaly jewelry’ s Antlered Deer Necklace on the late show with Craig Ferguson while she plays “The Show”. Seems like we have a fan in Lenka (or Lenka’s stylist!).

More rock and tillers who like to wear anomaly: CYNDI LAUPER!! She was on ABC's "The View" in June '08. Check out her earrings. They are from our Le Tusk Collection (now retired). Here’s her interview with Whoopi:

...and here on some British The View-like show:

As well as the same pair of Le Tusk Earrings (apparently a fave of hers) here on "Jimmy Kimmel Live":
