We are loving our feature in this month’s DC Modern Luxury Magazine. Check it out!

Thank you to DC Modern Luxury Magazine for featuring us!
Drum roll please! We’re very proud and excited to introduce our new KJ jewelry pouches! The pouches are an ivory cream suede with bright copper foiling of our signature KJ diamond logo mark.
As you many of you may already know, “KJ,” is the personal tribute to Jenny and her younger sister, Katie, behind our name “KOLTON.J”. When the close sisters were kids, they called all their plays, artwork, and other shenanigans “KJ Productions” because they thought “JK” meant “Just Kidding”…and admittedly perhaps still do.
Let us know what you think of the new pouches, we’d love to hear!

April is autism awareness month & in honor of that, we wanted to shine a little blue light on awareness.
Did you know…?
Autism is a developmental disorder
It’s characterized by impaired social interaction & communication and repetitive, restrictive behavior.
Autism has a strong genetic basis
Signs begin to show within the first 2-3 years of development
Autism is diagnosed by behavior
It affects 1 in 88 children
Boys are five times more likely to than girls to have autism
On average, autism costs a family $60,000 a year
There is no medical detection or cure for autism, only treatment.
Autism hinders an individual’s ability to makes it difficult to have meaningful, lasting relationships with others. There is a common misconception that children with autism prefer to be alone, but the reality is that even high-functioning autistic children feel intense and frequent loneliness compared to their non-autistic peers.
Now you can speak up and “light it up blue” to raise awareness. Here are some great charities to visit & donate: http://www.lightitupblue.org; http://www.myasdf.org; http://www.autismspeaks.org/

Discount code valid April 22nd – May 12th. Stay tuned for more posts about all things mom and happy shopping!
After a week of cloudless skies, sun rays, and 80˚ temperatures, we think it’s safe to say spring is officially here to stay. Finally! Now it’s time to transition our closets from the rain jackets & heavy sweaters to sandals & short sleeves. Here is a trifecta of ideas to kick-start your spring wardrobe and ensure you’re strutting the streets with your best foot forward.
￼Take this unexpected combo featuring the one-of-a-kind Coral, Agate, & Vintage Pin necklace ($258) made with carnelian stones and fresh water pearls wrapped in vintage gold plated brass chain. The coral colors mixed with the floral print military pants is unexpected and makes for a confident, noteworthy outfit.
￼The Black & White pair is classic—put a warm weather spin on the combination by adding some camel colored leather & a simple gold bracelet topped off with a splash of red. The Brass & Pearl Charm Bracelet (top left, $118) and the Paige Bracelet (center, $78) pull together any outfit, be it a mid-week work ensemble or weekend mix.
￼Try a western inspiration with a modern twist. This combination features the one-of-a-kind Silver Drop Necklace ($148) composed of turquoise and silver plated beads and the Roxy Bracelet ($89) made from raw crystallized pyrite cubes & layers of plated brass chain. Slip on a light sweater and some colored shorts and these statement accessories will do all the talking for you. Last thing to do? Be so good they can’t ignore you.
