One of the many things I love about Morocco is their ceremony of drinking tea.  While it is symbolic of their culture and hospitality, to me it is a great reminder to relax, slow down, enjoy the company you are with, and truly savor the experience.  

Making Moroccan mint tea is a bit of an art form, and quite spectacular to watch.  Here is a great recipe for Moroccan Mint Tea if you want to give it a try.  With so many of our jewels inspired by Moroccan lanterns, architecture, patterns, shapes, and colors, it seemed fitting to incorporate our own tea ceremony into the lookbook photoshoot.  So sit back and sip some tea with friends (while dripping in layers of fringe jewels of course).

If you ever step foot in the Criscara studio, or come to our home, the 1st thing you are likely to notice is the abundance of gemstones everywhere you look.  On every windowsill, bookshelf, and flat surface, and a key part of most of our jewelry displays...  Yup, I am obsessed with gemstones (no shocker there).
