SOUND UP! Judging by the gentle tink-tink-tink on the metal roof below my window, I think the rain will let up today.

Saturdays are good days in the shop. Open at 11.😉 Hope to see you!

I forgot to tell you…a new shipment of Mifuko totes arrived from Finland.

These totes are such a good value, and you look so smart carrying one.

I’ve had mine for three years and have used and abused it, and it still is as good as new. 

Upcycled, sustainable materials, and fair trade. Doesn’t get any better. Buy smart and you’ll thank yourself later.😉

Look what just arrived!! There has never been a more perfect time for this. My absolute favorite pendant of white onyx, ruby, and 18k gold. It is presented with a long cotton cord, but the bail is generous enough to accept nearly any chain you already have. It is 2 inches, top to bottom, not including bail. It is perfect.

White onyx is thought to bring about clarity and focus, a stone of potential.
 
Ruby is thought to be a stone of protection and fortune.

Gold metal represents abundance.

And, finally, the shape is the yoni, which is a symbol of feminine strength. 

Jewelry designer Lucine Almas works very closely with the best artisans in her beloved India and carefully, joyfully selects each stone. The excellence in workmanship is extraordinary.

Hurry! I only have two.

Brooch as wearable art. 

This piece is three inches in diameter and is as much fun to wear as you would think!

There are still some of the “grand tour” plaster intaglios left at the shop. 

They look quite important when framed but also look intriguing when sitting in a tray on top of your book stack!

Come see!
