Our own forest canopy of Jan Carson's mobiles have arrived. Jan creates stunning kinetic sculptures with sweeping branches and stylized leaves. Each is made with hand-dyed and lightly starched silk with fine gauge stainless wire. Pick her Classic leaf design, Gingko, Aspen, or Japanese Maple. They're all so lovely, its hard to have a favorite.
One tree is planted for every mobile sold through the artists' partnership with American Forests/Global ReLeaf. Now that is leafy love!

Take a little vintage, a bit of nostalgia, mix with a love of nature, then toss in a modern sensibility and you have the "Mullanium" collection! Their earrings, necklaces, bracelets, watches, and pins are all created with a medley of metals, some are painted and textured with glass or pearl accents to complete these timeless pieces! A sweet lil' Wish Box might be on her wish list? A little surprise is inside each box, with plenty of room left to add your wishes!
Glenda the Good Witch (GGW), as she is affectionately known, creates organic forms that are highly textured and fully functional. She is influenced by flowers, a love of textures, and time spent in her mother's bakery. She compares many of her hand-building techniques to those used in baking, but without the calories!
Lidia is making it much easier for us to pretend we have a warm, bright, spring-like sun shining through our front windows with her new collection of happy, colorful stained glass. Add one of her window panels or suncatchers to your home and guarantee an uplifted mood for all!
Cincinnati legend Aaron Rubinstein has wowed us once again with a delivery of sterling, pearl, and semi-precious stone pieces. Contemporary, classic, and beautiful. See our newest collection of Judaic-themed works, like this pendant that reads "I am my beloved and my beloved is mine" - truly romantic!
A fresh batch of classic art tiles from Scott Weaver have just arrived that features birds, flowers, and woodland creatures. If that's not exciting enough... Mark your calendars ~ our spectacular artTILE exhibit returns in May! Last years show brought us more than 1000 handmade artTILES from 35 artists to share with you. Expect new artists and more fabulous designs this year!
Love the romance of a bygone era? So does Kristi Shapla with her series of vintage-inspired reversible pendants and earrings. So many happy lovebirds ~ this one with a tiny locket charm. Kristi uses locally sourced, recycled and reclaimed materials whenever possible, framing each piece with high quality, lead-free silver alloy solder. What is more romantic than a bicycle built for two?
