Painted Ladies: Meet Taylor Triano

Painted Ladies: Meet Taylor Triano Meet Taylor. Taylor is the Owner and Artist behind Commonwild Flag CO., a hand painted custom flag and screen printing company based in Kansas City. I met Taylor last year and every time I see her I think, "Damn. She's so cool".  She's an artist, she wears cool jewelry, and her tattoos are phenomenal.

So... We Are Having a Baby...

So... We Are Having a Baby ***Heads up: This post is less about jewelry and more about my womb*** WE ARE HAVING A BABY... SOON.  My husband and I found out the week before we launched Sierra Winter Jewelry that we were pregnant and just like that, 2016 would be the year of two babies. The business baby and the human baby. I always knew we would be adding to the Sierra Winter Jewelry team just not that fast! The company flow chart will look something like this.  Is My Baby's First Word Going To Be The 'F' Word?  The day I...

Who The Hell is Sierra Winter

Who The Hell is Sierra Winter? It's been a little over 4 months since the launch of Sierra Winter Jewelry and an introduction is probably in order. This is the start of my blog here at the website where I hope to share more about the brand, lifestyle, and give you a look behind the scenes. Posts in the future will be more informative and educational about jewelry, but I want you to know just who the hell Sierra Winter is and how this all came to be. (Note: I prefer to read my news and blogs in Buzzfeed article...
