This stunning umbalite garnet is quite rare – not only is it rare to find one this color (a vibrant rosy fuschia), but it is also rare to find one this large.  Our master faceter, Bill Booze, added his magic to bring out the most incredible sparkle and beauty from this stone.  Even if you’re not into garnets, stop by to see this beauty for yourself, and learn something new!

A perfect gift for a special January birthday girl, since garnets are the birthstone for January.

Happy Boxing Day!

It’s December 26th, the day after Christmas.  In British Commonwealth countries, it is the day when servants and tradesmen would receive gifts, known as a “Christmas box”, from their masters, employers or customers.  Thus, it is known as Boxing Day.

For those of us at MaJe Gallery, we have typically taken this day off to rest a bit more after the super busy selling season.  However, this year it falls on a Saturday, so here we are at the gallery, having fun with visiting family members who are out meandering about downtown Edmonds today.

We’ll be here until 4pm, so if you are bringing your family downtown, please stop by to introduce them and say hello!

 

Five Tips For Holiday Decor

Decorating for the holidays can be a lot of fun, especially when you have beautiful things to put out and enjoy.  Our artisans have been hard at work creating lovely things.  Here are five ideas.

Glass decorations for the holidays

Two different artists are at work here, both working in glass. A self-standing snowman couple enjoy looking at the gifts beneath their tree on this lovely fused glass art work by Bellingham’s Heidi VanderWerff.  Just $79.95.  Three art glass trees in varying sizes are made of clear glass, with edges smoothed out both for safety and it also creates a frosted effect.  Nice and sturdy, these actually come in 5 sizes – $18 – $68.

Fused glass holly tray by Linda Covey

Place your Christmas cookies or cheese and crackers on this lovely fused glass tray by Renton’s Linda Covey.  13″ x 8″ and $60.

Fused glass snowman plate

And how about this one?  Adorable or what?  Sparkly fused glass with a bow-tied and top-hatted snowman in the center.  Another perfect dish for cookies or candies, or simply to adorn the coffee table.  Made in Kirkland by Celeste, this one is $32.

Glass and aluminum tree trio

I’m hearing from several customers that they are giving up putting up a real tree now that the kids have moved on.  Instead, they’re getting this fused glass votive tree trio.  Fused glass adorns an aluminum frame, behind which you can find a “shelf” for a votive candle.  The aluminum is open in the back, so when the candle is lit, it glows through the glass is a very charming manner.  Sold separately, these are $18.50, $21.50 and $23.50 respectively.

Group of glass trees

Another choice made by some in lieu of a Christmas tree is this lovely, simple trio.  This features a stack of fused glass in gradually diminishing sizes.  These are nice and sturdy and have rubber feet so as not to mar your table top.  Elegant!  $18 – $68 (5 sizes available in all).

So stop on by and get adorned for the holidays by MaJe artisans!
