Big Dog Ranch benefit party at Sheilds Jewelry in Palm Beach

A few days ago I had the pleasure of capturing a fun little event in Palm Beach.  Cristiana Shields the owner and creator behind  Shields Jewelry , hosted a retro chic ‘Grease’ theme party to benefit Big Dog Ranch Rescue, who by the way, also have ‘small’ sweet small dogs up for adoption too.

Shields Jewelry is not your typical jewelry, each piece in the store  are ‘one of a kind’ and hand made . They even come with a story about how the piece was inspired and individual names. Cristiana is not your typical store owner as well, she’s an energetic fun personality that you can’t help but like instantly. Her dog Lucy was assisting her with the evenings events too.

 Also with instant appeal are the dogs who were in need of adoption from big dog ranch rescue, if I hadn’t just adopted a second dog a few months ago I would have brought the chocolate brown lab mix named ‘Diva’ home that night . All four of my past and present dogs were rescued from shelters and became healthy, happy, totally spoiled family members.  I admire all the shelter volunteers and foster owners who helped with the event and truly cared for these dogs. At the end of the party, the dogs from the shelter , fosters and even some guest took part in a fun dog fashion show with Shields Jewelry new pet line collection.

Other people who help with this event were Johnny Ray, Elvis impersonator, who took a photo with everyone -including the dogs. Members of the Salvagerz car club, who helped the events visibility by parked three vintage cars in front of the Paramount. The  Fuku Restaurant co-hosted the event by supplying  fresh (and quite yummy) sushi and drinks for guests.
