So where do I even begin....@therealdebramessing was one of my first 100 followers over 4 1/2 years ago here on #ThirdCoastGems . Her genuine interest & excitement in the Jewelry I was posting, encouraged me to keep doing what I was doing. Because as my tagline states: "When you have a true passion for something....it's contagious!". Over the years we had several convos in the comment sections of my posts & others that she would gleefully weigh in on and one lengthy conversation over DM. I told her about growing up in Fort Worth Texas when her hit sitcom #WillAndGrace was on it's first run. And how much a hit TV show & the characters changed my life for the better. I was bullied before I came out of the closet. Heck, I was bullied before I even knew I was "in the closet" or what being a Gay man even meant. I was always different. "Friendly, Kind, Sensitive, Emotional, Caring, Gentle, Meek, Nice, Sweet". Those were adjectives that are normally good, but that a tall young boy growing up in "Texas football country" was ridiculed & belittled for. After Will & Grace became a national hit, I saw that a Gay man could grow up to be a successful lawyer (or whatever he wanted to be), every gal wanted a Gay best friend, & most importantly (at least in my eyes); that being Gay & LGBT people were NORMAL. I came out of the closet to a group of close girlfriends the end of my Junior year of High School, & life was okay. The sky didn't fall, the world didn't end, life got easier & better. I told Debra this over DM years ago, & during the few minutes I had with her at the @gemawards the other night, she remembered me. #DebraMessing won the #GemAward for Jewelry Style that night. Not just because she wears beautiful jewelry & looks amazing wearing it. But because she REMEMBERS those who made the wearable art she adorns herself with. Debra always gives credit to those artists and everyone involved. Thank You to @jewelersofamerica for the lovely evening that is the #GemAwards , @amandagizzi for organizing the finest event in our industry, @raygriffithsfinejewelry for introducing me, & again to @therealdebramessing for supporting my endeavors to share beauty with World. 🙏🏼💞🤠💎💍
Imagine if Eric and Debra got together when W&G started. I honestly think that would be the cutest thing and they would have made a cute couple. Just a thought, no disrespect to anyone.

HELLO!!! i’m so excited that i’ve finally gotten my lazy ass to make an acc for this show that i love sm! i found the show quite recently (nov/dec 2017) but i fell in love with the show instantly. i love the physical comdedy and the fact that the show makes me laugh outloud. i’ve already watched all the seasons like three times (yes i know i’m pathetic). i’m an 18 year old gal from finland and i can’t wait to get new friends from this fandom and make edits of the funniest show and cast!!!
if you read this far, congrats bc it’s ending now. i will do scene edits and them some other edits (pics from the cast, interviews, stuff like that) and i can’t wait to get properly started with this acc 💛💛💛
@TheRealDebraMessing has a great deal to say about @Coolsculpting… “With treatments as little as 35 minutes, you can get rid of stubborn bulges that resist you to have a healthy lifestyle… it is my best discovery of the year”. Stop by #woodlandswellness to learn more about this treatment!
Meeting the game-changing @iamcattsadler at #womensmarch yesterday. 🙏🏼 Yep, I told her how frustrating it is to watch E!'s #TimesUp hypocrisy and yes, I hope more celebs stick up for her and challenge the network at #SAGAwards today. ✊🏼💪🏼 #imwithcattsad (link in bio) @timesupnow
Before & After Transformation!
Holy Buckets this was a long but rewarding process! (3.5hrs processing)
Used #blankcanvas to lift her before colors out which helped a little her HD Aloxxi Red .26 wasn’t budging so our final goal was a #debramessing red color for all over!
1st color I filled it with Aloxxi 7rk+6rg
2nd color after rinsing our the fill I did Aloxxi 6rg+ 7rg+ 6rk+ a little 5rm as u could still see a little bit of where the lighter pieces were and that was driving me crazy!! Was a little darker than I wanted but reds always fade a little bit after a few washes and my main concern was the lighter pieces and the HD Reds I wanted those to blend all it all I’m pretty happy with it
We might tweak it a little but we shall see!!! Thanks Bri for letting me play!! #aloxxi#amesiowa#ameshairstylist#ameshairsalon#michelledoesmyhair#michellesmagicfingers
Tonight, I attended the Gem Awards, our industry's annual "Oscars," where actress Debra Messing was given an award for jewelry style. “A piece of jewelry can make me feel strong, feminine, royal, edgy, demure -- I can transform every day," says Messing. "My love for jewelry is deep and true." Here's Messing's most recent jewelry triumph at the Golden Globes. Our emerald jewelry pays her homage. See more at link in bio.
