“In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.” ~Albert Camus
This winter blast will not last forever and we are looking ahead toward spring. Beautiful new pieces with sun flowers, butterflies, mermaids and much more have been displayed this week. Everyday we have the most unique and one-of-a-kind handcrafted silver jewelry being arranged on our shelves. Stop by, keep warm, and let us tell you the story of our distinct collections.
Warm Amber Intaglio Carved Cameos with Sterling Silver
These pieces are created by carving the amber from the inside to create an image, this is also called reverse engraving. Each piece is a work of art and one-of-a-kind. Baltic Amber is a fossilized tree resin that dates from 44 million years ago. The Baltic region is estimated to have created over ten tons of amber. The amber jewelry we carry is handcrafted with sterling silver. The color of the amber in these pieces range from honey, cognac and cherry.
Tree of Life is a common motif in various world theologies for the interconnection of all life on our planet. It is also a metaphor for our common descent in the evolutionary sense. This motif is best reproduced when it is carved in amber – the sap from trees that has been fossilized.
One of a Kind Gems
A new collection of one-of-a-kind pieces from Bali using exquisite genuine gemstones has arrived. The staff has been ogling over pendants like this waterfall pendant with labradorite and blue topaz displayed on a mesh collar. Other pieces from this collection feature Caribbean larimar, rainbow moonstone, druzy agate, tanzanite and much more…
This collection also features amazing rings. Everything is made by hand with fine sterling silver with detailed silver work that makes these pieces true objects of art.
Larimar is found in the Caribbean and once called the blue gem of the Caribbean. Discovered on the beach where the Bahoruco river meets the sea, this blue gem was tumbled along the stream beds to a natural polish and stood out against the dark gravels of the river bed and beach. Only since the 1970’s has this stone been mined and enjoyed in jewelry.
