Our First Sale Ever

Post from Julie:

Steve is in charge of our inventory and he has decided that before he will unveil our newest creations for the Holidays, we should clear out a few of our seasonal summer jewelry.  Theses are still one of a kind pieces – but may have a bit of a warm weather vibe.  So if you live in a warmer climate, or will be travelling to the tropics during the winter – now is the time to check out our Inventory Close-outs!

The Newest Pet Rock?

Post from Steve

If you of a certain age, you can remember the Pet Rock fad. It was a bit crazy, but everyone had a collection of rocks. I too had one, that after a couple of years went into the trash. Well the latest trend in jewelry is coming from Charlie De Viel Castel. He’s taking stones and embellishing them with a single precious stone and making cutting edge necklaces and rings. Simple but yet unique, but with a definite upscale price. Check out his website:

North by Northwest

Post by Julie

Just watched that old classic Alfred Hitchcock movie “North by Northwest with Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint, loved Eva’s clothes so much, I did a little research. Apparently Mr. Hitchcock took Eva to Bergdorf Goodman’s and picked out her clothes for the movie himself.

He also had her cut her waist length hair into a very classic chin length cut and had her lower her natural voice a degree or two. His efforts with her acting ability and natural sex appeal was unforgettable. If you haven’t seen it lately, you should watch it again. And if can, try to notice the outfit she wears to the Auction House – the low back with that simple black & red beaded choker is stunning!

Maybe I’m starting to get old and sound like my parents – but that was a style I wouldn’t mind coming back again -since I missed it the first time around!
