more! new jewelry

ret these tasty new designs by Margaret Solow are sure to make you swoon…

pictured above are her “Zen Gems". margaret says "it’s all about the stone. revel in the beauty and simplicity of precious and semi-precious stones such as citrine, pink tourmaline, rose quartz, green tourmaline, blue chalcedony, amethyst, prenhite and moonstone. celebrate with sparkle and layers of stones, or contemplate with something smooth and calming. each stone is strung on highly durable polymiede string and finished with a sterling silver clasp.”

pictured above are her "wabi - sabi" necklaces. “these necklaces were inspired by the japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi. wabi-sabi is the beauty of things imperfect…it is a beauty of things modest and humble…it is a beauty of things unconventional.
wabi-sabi reflects the natural beauty of things found in nature; simple, imperfect, incomplete things.
each necklace is made with a piece of free form sterling silver, created by dropping pure molten silver into water. like things in nature, no two are alike. the wabi-sabi piece is strung on a highly durable red cord. the red string borrows from buddist and kabalistic traditions, and will bring the wearer good luck and protection.”
