Kairos Collection: Fall 2018

Kairos – The Fall 2018 Collection from Rosa Kilgore Jewelry

The fall equinox has arrived, and so has my latest collection, Kairos. Just like the arrival of autumn reminds us of the rhythmic march of time (chronos), the Greek word kairos refers to a special moment of opportunity. That perfect moment rolls around and you can say or do the perfect thing, when the energy shifts and you can feel the electric moment of potential.

The equinox is somewhat of an opportunity as well – it marks a transitional point in time. Here in the northern hemisphere, summer is ending, and autumn is beginning. Day and night are completely equal, and there’s a moment of balance. We’re reflecting on the past, as well as looking forward to what the future has in store.

I adore equinoxes (I try to release my collections in conjunction with them). This season, the concepts of chronos vs kairos were especially fascinating to me, and have been my main source of inspiration as I’ve worked on the collection. The hoops are not only flattering (what’s better than hoop earrings!), but symbolic of cycles and wholeness.

Handmade in my Flagstaff studio, this collection is made with recycled sterling silver, pearls, green onyx, and ancient bronze.

My long pearl necklace with a hand-pressed silver hoop can be worn short or long. Pair it with a simple blouse and jeans or dress up an evening outfit.

Boho Hoop Earrings with Green Onyx by Rosa Kilgore Jewelry

The hoop earrings in my Kairos collection add a flash of silver and are dripping with lovely faceted green onyx accents. The rich jewel tones will be perfect as we enter the cooler months.

Making this collection was such a great experience, and I’m excited to share it with you. On this equinox, I’m grateful for all 2018 has brought and looking forward to what’s to come!

Cheers to fall, and here’s hoping you seize the kairos moments in your life.

Magazine Feature- The Red Book

I’m over the moon about this wonderful feature in The Red Book! A huge thanks to Perrine Adams for the amazing article and to Jill Richards for the gorgeous photos.

Perrine and I met when she attended my jewelry workshop at Sanctuary Resort during my Artist in Residence in March. We hit it off and this feature is a result of that delightful meeting.

Mother and Daughter Artists Rosa Kilgore and Linda Margaret Kilgore

The piece focuses on the unusual aspect of three working artists in one family.  They were photographing the three of us on the same day so we made a little party of it. We served chocolate croissants (home made – thank you Trader Joes), mineral water and French lemonade. Pretty sure I ate more than half the croissants myself!

The photo shoot was so inspiring and fun. It was a gorgeous morning and Jill and her assistant were really easy to work with. I had met Jill once before, when Luxe magazine did an article on my mother Linda Margaret Kilgore. It was great to see her again and it also helped me feel more comfortable in front of the camera.

Thank you to everyone involved!

Summer Blues

Well, we’re officially in the dog days of summer. Traditionally from July 3rd – August 11th, it’s name comes from Greek and Roman astrologers who saw the rising star Sirius, the “Dog star”, join the sun in the sky. It was believed that this period brings bad luck, storms, monsoons, and lethargy.

While I’m not sure of the accuracy of this old belief, I can certainly understand summertime blues. When the days are long and slow, and the sweltering heat never seem to end, it’s easy to feel low energy.

Despite all the superstition, I love all shades of summertime, especially blues. There is something so cool about denim and indigo in the sunshine. These warm July days are longing for some balance!

Embrace the chiller side of summer with some of my cool toned, blue-accented jewelry.

Rain Drop Lariat Necklace on Blue Onyx


There’s something so captivating about summer storms. This Lariat necklace with blue onyx from my MONSOON collection hangs on a lovely strand of little pearls with faceted blue onyx at the drop point. This necklace has a 2 inch extender, so it can be worn with a variety of necklines.

The dog days of summer will be over soon! Let’s be thankful for another trip around this hot, hot sun. I’ll be avoiding the AZ sun as much as I can and seeking shade, preferably indoor and air-conditioned!

Here’s hoping any summer blues you encounter are temporary and fashion forward.
