This classic black and white striped wrap is such fun!

For some wow and pizzazz, this classic black and white striped cardigan style wrap features a single button at the top, with lots of flowy fun fabric.

New Jewelry By Manya Vee

Fused silver necklace with apache gold pendant, and carnelian, onyx and smoky quartz necklace by Manya Vee
These two necklaces showcase two distinctive styles of jewelry Manya Vee specializes in

Here are two new necklaces by our very own Manya Vee. These are hot off the anvil – just finished a few days ago! They capture two distinctive methods Manya uses to make her popular jewelry.

On the left is one of her handmade 24″ silver chains with gold-fill links interspersed. Each silver link was first fused, and then formed and hammered. The center stone is super cool. It’s called Apache Gold. Mined in Arizona, it has pyrite captured in a black schist base. The pattern of the “gold” within the black is beautiful. It is said to help us substitute negative energy for positive. Who couldn’t use that these days?

On the right is a splendid example of one of Manya’s classic beaded pieces. This one features a sterling and carnelian pendant Manya commissed over 20 years ago (she’s finally parting with it!). Enhanced with carnelian, smoky quartz and black onyx beads, it is 24″ long.

More new jewelry comes in the form of the ever-popular sterling rings by Lynnwood’s Bonnie AuBuchon. Bonnie just delivered a large collection with stones like aquamarine, labradorite, turquoise and larimar.  Here are three to whet your appetite.

New jewelry like these three rings from Bonnie AuBuchon

On the left, in that unique and beloved blue, is the larimar in a simple sterling setting and single-row band. Currently sized at 6 1/2, we can re-size it to your needs.  In the middle is a fascinating amethyst with lots of white matrix within. Set in a simple sterling bezel with a triple-row band.  Currently sized at 7, again, we can re-size it for you if needed.  A glowing carnelian is on the right, sized at 5 1/2. The bezel has a fancy edge. The band is a split double-wide, and  I don’t need to mention that we can make it your size.

New Art at MaJe

"New Buds" mixed media collage by DJ Perry
“New Buds” mixed media collage by DJ Perry

Multiple-award winning artist Donna Jean Perry delivered a new collection of works including this ode to our changing seasons, “New Buds.”  While the leaves will fall off soon, never fear! Spring is just months away and new buds will appear on those bare branches. This piece is beautifully framed with an ivory mat and matte black frame that measures 28″ x 22″, so it’s ready to hang immediately.

Outfits of the Week

Skirt, Top and jewelry - all new at MaJe
First Outfit of the Week

As we move into fall, our clothing choices are turning autumnal! Check out this gorgeous one-of-a-kind skirt by Marcia Bloom. (Sorry to report that it has now sold. However, other similar skirts are still available.) It’s longer than usual, and sports TWO layers. The top layer is sheer, so she built in a slip. The scalloped hem zigs where the slip zags, while peaking out from beneath in an enticing way. Paired here with an aubergine top by Testimony Los Angeles, you could certainly also wear it with olive green, magenta, terra cotta, black or white. This skirt could easily transition from fall to winter and into spring, therefore adding a versatile skirt to your collection.

In keeping with the colors and mood, I paired it here with a one-of-a-kind necklace by Poulsbo’s Poppy Design. A jade pendant carved into a dragon is the main focus. Coppery-gold coin pearls are punctuated with wavy silver tubes and white glass beads. It’s doubled up here, but could also be worn long at 32″.

New clothing by Pam Wells
Terra Cotta “Dragonfly” jacket by Pam Wells.

Terra Cotta and Eggplant colors unite in this lovely vest-like piece by Olympia’s Pam Wells. Made from vintage silk sari fabric, so it is easy to dress up or down. I paired it here with an ivory top by Testimony Los Angeles, as well as their pocket pants in “sand.” The simple carnelian pendant was made in Seattle by Mary Freiberger. Easy to wear. Easy care. Comfortable and stylish.

The 3/4 sleeves are perfect.

Getting Crabby In Edmonds With Crab Art

When you live on the water like we do in Edmonds, there’s a likely chance you enjoy eating crab. We can catch them right off our pier down on the waterfront a mere four blocks away! So naturally, our artists enjoy making crab art too!

The Crab In Art

Crab Art like these sculptural pieces are such fun
Fused glass and steel sculptural crabs

Brand new work from our glass and steel artist, Celeste Stuhring, these large and small sculptural crabs are self-standing. A great example of crab art! The large crab measures 11″ at the widest part, and 7.5″ from front claw to back claw. It stands 3″ tall at the highest point (it’s taller at the front claws).

The small crab is 7″ at the widest part, and 4.5″ from front claw to back claw. It stands 2.5″ tall at the tallest part (front claws). These are sold out at the moment. Only the large is still available.

These sculptural works can be indoor or outdoor. If outdoors, the steel will gradually rust, adding a lovely finish to the piece.

Crab Art As Functional Art

Functional crab art - bowl on stand
Large Crab Bowl on Stand

If you think crab is delicious, then you might also think crab and artichoke dip is delicious. Personally, I’m quite addicted to it. This gorgeous fused glass bowl, complete with a charming stand, is the perfect serving dish for it!  Of course, it is also great for salsa or any other dip too.

The dish is 12″ x 10″, with the bowl part 5.5″ in diameter and 1.75″ deep. The wrought iron stand makes it 4″ high.

Crab Art as night light
Fused Glass Crab Night Light

Avoid stubbing your toes on the way to the bathroom in the middle of the night with this adorable crab art night light! This particular one sold on 8/4, but if you want one of your own, just let me know and we’ll order one for you!

Crab Art candle shield
Crab Candle shield, front and side view

For the candle lovers out there, how about this adorable fused glass and steel candle shield?  The steel is open behind the glass so when the candle is lit, it glows through the glass in the center.  A built-in candle stand with attached votive holder (see the side view) makes it easy to arrange. While similar, no two are alike.

And Now, For the Wearable Art

Trio of new pieced fabric scarves by Susie Howell
Trio of new scarves by Susie Howell

Susie Howell pieces beautiful fabrics together to make one-of-a-kind scarves like these three here. No two alike, and such fun to wear.  These (except the turquoise/yellow one which sold on 8/4)  and many more can now be found at MaJe!

A smashing summer outfit
A smashing summer outfit

Summer’s not over yet! Enjoy the last days of warmth and sunshine with this charming and attractive outfit.  The skirt is by Testimony, made of their soft French Terry fabric. It’s a “faux wrap” skirt in a seafoam color. The top is a white bamboo A-line tank from Angelrox. The scarf that pulls everything together is made from two vintage silk panels with vintage lace at the bottom (another awesome scarf by Susie Howell).  A charming necklace by Seattle’s Jem’s Jewelry adorns the blouse.  The finishing touch is the white hat. It’s a bowler style that looks good on nearly everyone. It’s crushable and packable, and features SunGuard to protect your skin. Perfect for summer gatherings!
