Lucky Charms

Fashion March 2nd, 2015 — by:

As we get closer to St. Patrick’s Day we find ourselves thinking about luck. Everyone needs a lucky charm or two to get them through the good times and the bad.

This lucky horseshoe and clover bracelet packs a lot of luck into one pretty cabochon.

Martha Ackerman’s diamond covered horn pendant is the perfect symbol of luck. The horn, or cornicello, is a popular symbol in Italy for warding off the evil eye.

This one of a kind sandalwood horseshoe necklace is accented with diamonds and has an adjustable clasp. What kid doesn’t remember sifting through their lucky charms for this classic symbol of luck?

Of all of the good luck symbols, the four leaf clover is definitely the most iconic and recognizable. This necklace with a freshwater pearl chain can be worn year ’round for a dose of luck.

Throughout history, eye talismans have been worn for good luck and to ward off evil. Taking inspiration from those ancient designs, this “all-seeing eye”  bracelet gets glam with dozens of sparkling diamonds.

The Wild Horse Necklace features an enamel horse and a second charm that reads freedom. Perfect for your free spirited teenager’s Easter basket.

 

In Like A Lion

Shops March 2nd, 2015 — by:

Per usual, March is coming in like a lion. While we can only hope things are trending towards “lamb” in the weather department, we find ourselves embracing the battle of the bitter cold with these ferocious finds.

This majestic lion is clearly putting up a fight, which is oddly similar to our approach towards winter right now.

This lion’s head tray is crafted of ceramic and fired in a mineral-based glaze with an almost metallic appearance. The motif is classic and masculine — perfect for a man’s bedside table or as a corporate gift.

The King of the Jungle… and our feet. These regal needlepoint slippers make a strong statement.

Hear us roar. This coin ring depicts a lion walking with a pentagram above. The lion in ancient times, as in present day, was a symbol of royalty, stateliness and bravery.

The Lion Love dress features handsome lions on a crisp medium weight cotton linen. Pair that with Middy N’ Me’s expert tailoring and you have a sophisticated shirt dress.

Les Popipops are the latest collection from Moulin Roty and they never cease to impress and amaze. Meet Lion, a lovable friend with killer fashion sense!

Lexie Armstrong’s Original Watercolor of a Lion makes it abundantly clear why these powerful animals are so respected and revered.

 

HOME TRENDS: Copper

Home February 23rd, 2015 — by:

It seem like everyone is adding a bit of copper into their homes these days. Hop on board with one of our favorite trends of 2015.

We’re coveting this near pair of grand scale English 19th century copper glazed street lanterns. Is there anything better than an antique oversized lantern? We don’t think so.

The CMK Copper Jubilee Moulds are inspired by 19th century, delicately detailed vintage moulds. Made of a heavy gauge copper and lined with tin, these moulds can be used to shape puddings, jellies, entrées, pâtés, butters and even chocolates. Perfect for your next gathering!

These copper mugs are perfect for sipping the drink du jour. If you feel like Moscow Mules have made an appearance on every trendy drink menu in the past year then you’re right! People can’t get enough of the refreshing drink and its shiny vessel.

Iris & Co’s African Currency Statues are sure to be a conversation piece. They even have a modern feel despite their ancient origins.

Copper is lovely, but copper with patina is downright irresistable. This repousse sculpture would make a lovely statement piece above a mantle or your favorite chest.

This Heritage Handcrafted sink is truly one of a kind. Each one is made by hand from a reclaimed Whiskey Barrel with copper details. We think this would be such a standout in a bar area or wine cellar.
