New Stones & SALE News!

Beltane and the coming of Spring (truly, finally) has brought on a wonderful weekend.

Friday night featured a great jewelry show called “Piercing the Pickle”, depicting jeweler’s interpretations of the pickle fork, at a groovy cocktail bar called The Jewel Box in my new hometown of Portland, ME.

Saturday morning I feasted on rocks in all forms at a gem show. 

All are currently up for grabs for custom orders, but I’m only accepting a certain amount of customs this month as the shops will be closed from May 20th – June 5th.

I did go a bit overboard on the succulent labradorite….

In other news, the annual MAY SALE has started!

In the main shop enter in the coupon code: MAYBABY for 10% off of your order from now until May 20th. This doesn’t apply to custom orders or the plugs shop. Please be sure to enter in the code at checkout as I will not be able to refund those that forget.

That’s all for now!

Some Art News!

Well, once again it’s been quite awhile since my last post here. I wanted to update folks about an exciting opportunity to acquire not just my jewels but work by local artists from Portland, Maine, where I now live! For those of you that follow me closely you know I have a studio space at The Dooryard Collective. I’m the only jeweler, and others work in mixed media, paint, printmaking, stencil art, installation, and bronze sculpture. I love being among these talented people, and two of them have recently created CSArt, Portland’s first art share program. By purchasing full shares or half shares you can invest in several *surprise* art pieces by different Portland artists for the price of one of my larger pieces of jewelry. Many of these artists are from The Dooryard. The cost is an amazing deal for what you receive, and it’s also a great starter package idea for anyone with bare walls calling to be covered.

Now because this is an art share program, I will be creating *ONE OF A KIND* works for it! This means one of a kind stacking ring or Cave themed ring sets, one of a kind earrings, plus keychains, rings, or leather necklaces for fellas. This is an opportunity to not only score some mystery pieces from me, but invest in some great talent for the price of one of my statement pieces.
