Signorelli – Mix: Beautiful Handcrafted Italian Jewelry

Allow me to introduce you to Signorelli – Mix handcrafted Italian sterling silver jewelry.  Jewelry designer, Janine Signorelli, is a family friend who  lives in Los Angeles and travels to her ancestral homeland of Italy each year for inspiration, sourcing and collaboration with top jewelry makers. Janine has recently launched her Signorelli – Mix Etsy store and is populating it with all her beautiful earrings, necklaces and rings. Go take a peek at her shop and see what you think.

I find the way she makes each piece fascinating. I wish I could watch it firsthand; especially if it involves going to Italy. I’ve enjoyed wearing several items of her jewelry this past week and have received many compliments. I’ll share more photos on social soon – #signorellimix.

From Janine: All Signorelli – Mix earrings with stones have all been cast and set in Italy. Each pair has the official Italian stamp for Sterling Silver. The jewelry is exclusively designed by me in my Santa Monica, California studio.

I spend my summers in Italy, and have had the guidance of a top jeweler. My stones are made in my home studio fired away with a personal high fire kiln. Each stone is made one at a time, shaped, carved, dried, fired, glazed, then glassed on the 3rd round with an occasional 4th firing.
*Note: specific processes for each item of jewelry may vary and details for each will be outlined in her Etsy store.

Janine has always been a creative and talented individual. In the next few paragraphs, she describes her personal journey from professional Italian chef to beautiful jewelry designer.

“I am a professionally trained chef who has always had an eye on small, colorful bites. I knew I would move back to my homeland (Italy) since I was 3yrs. After 1 year of college studying theatre arts, I took what was planned as a semester off. That semester turned into what I call having the opportunity to grow up again. Since I was still a teen upon departure, a young woman upon return. I earned my culinary degree from a 2 year program in Umbria, then continued on apprenticing in top restaurants including Pappagallo in Bologna & Gualtiero Marchese in Milan. My eye was always drawn to the tiny bites, appetizers, colorful desserts, especially shiny chocolates dressed in edible gold & silver leaf.”

“Before all that, my favorite art class was ceramics. My specialty was carving out shapes then filling these with recycled glass. Over the years I occasionally fired my glass works for special gifts. I’ve created a few tiles and the tile is what gave me that spark of genius. Tiny shiny objects, my love for color especially in glass, I created my 1st piece of jewelry, a ring with a miniature tile. Traveling for Christmas in Egypt with my best girlfriends (I was living In Italy then) I  purchased a silver bangle ring in Hurghada, a scuba divers dreamland off the Red Sea in Egypt. I took that original ring to a friend, a jeweler, and asked that he add a small bezel atop the bangle which holds my first tiny tile. The ring is now available recreated using the lost wax technique with the bezel holding an array of my tiny colorful tiles. I extended the use of the ring idea into a pendant, again with the help of a very well known Italian jeweler friend. I designed the pendant adding a simple round and an oval creating a tear-dropped design. The pendant is available as a first generation where the stones, my stones I call them, are simply set with epoxy. My 2nd generation pendant with exclude the epoxy, the stones will be set using prongs.”

“I moved on from the culinary arts to the art of jewelry creation. My jewelry continues to be entirely designed by me, now also carved or dripped with wax by me before sending off for casting in silver. I spend my summers in Italy, I have had the opportunity of the guidance of a top jeweler and currently creating my pieces in Santa Monica, my hometown.  My stones are made in my home studio fired away with my personal high fire kiln. Each stone is made one at a time, shaped, carved, dried, fired, glazed, then glassed. 3 firings total, before being set in a silver setting. Many steps to the end game. I find the artwork meditating, not more or less than my cooking, I just love creating tiny things that last.”

Here is some more interesting information about Signorelli – Mix jewelry.

“Deruta Calla Lilly” earrings are named after a small town in Umbria “the Green Heart of Italy” where Janine lived for 12 years. Deruta is famous for its ceramics and the shape of the earring resembles the flower.

“Venetian Date” earrings are named after the fruit and because Venice, Italy is world renowned for the colorful art of glass creations.

There are several more jewelry selections to choose from when you visit the Signorelli – Mix shop on Etsy, and each piece has a unique name and story. I invite you to take a gander at it – www.etsy.com/shop/signorellimix.

Let me know what you think! If you like her jewelry, please ‘follow’ her shop on Etsy, share it with friends on social and buy something pretty for yourself or someone special. Most items cost about $50 on up.

OC Social Media Summit Infotained for Social Good

CUI Marketing Team Representing

On May 18th, local social media rock stars Rochelle and Haley Veturis coordinated this entertaining and information-packed Orange County Social Media Summit for those of all levels of expertise. The summit took place at The Refinery at Saddleback Church Here is the OC Social Media Summit Online Catalog showing the complete lineup of the panelists, their credentials and Twitter handles.


There were so many great speakers and presentations! I loved the highly-visual and energetic coffee roasting video presented by Portola Coffee Lab’s barista and social media guru, Jeff Clinard. (If you’re a coffee snob, you will love this video – salivation warning.) 




I’m not one to ‘power network’, but I enjoyed meeting and talking to some new people: Tom Holmberg of Tom’s Foodie Blog, Shou and Sharon Mo of Stop Hunger Now and several more. (I have their business cards around here somewhere.)

What’s great about this event was that the emphasis centered around using social media for social good. There are so many worthy causes to support using the power of combined voices in the social sphere. My chosen cause for this event was Orangewood Children’s Foundation. I also learned of several new charitable organizations that are worthy of support: Sevenly.org and The Boot Campaign


Here is video of Pastor Rick Warren’s impromptu visit to the OC Social Media Summit, speaking on his use of social media at Saddleback Church. I always enjoy listening to him speak; he’s relevant, authentic and humorous. Video courtesy of Jason Tucker, Tucker Professional Web Services.



If you weren’t able to attend, you can listen in on the engaging conversations from the OC Social Media Summit on Twitter by reading up on the hashtag #OCSMS. I enjoyed Live Tweeting sporadically from @KreativeHaus and shared a lot of great takeaways and interaction with other attendees. I always enjoying meeting new, interesting people to follow in the social sphere.

It looks like this dynamic group is actively planning another fun social event: Social Media Day 2012 on June 29th at the OC Register. Join in on the conversation on Twitter: #SMDAYOC.


Wicked the Musical

by Lindy
I love Wicked! Especially the song Defying Gravity and its lyrics! It is truly an inspirational story of a misunderstood social outcast and how public relations can go awry.
(Kindly disregard the spelling and grammatical errors – it’s not my video.)
“Unlimited… My future is unlimited…”
You can listen to the entire, incredible album here.
