The Leona Jacket, front and back view

New this week at MaJe Gallery is another awesome jacket from Testimony Los Angeles – the Leona. Made with their high quality French terry (94% cotton, 6% spandex), it looks like suede, but is soft and flowy – and machine washable. This jacket buttons at the collar and features two big pockets. Notice the detailing on the back too.

Update as of 9/30: These are now sold out! Sorry! If you still want one, let me know and I’ll do my best to get it.

Here’s a great transition top from summer to fall

Also new this week is this super soft, flowy and flattering top from California’s Color Me Cotton. The unusual fabric feels amazing on the skin. The cut hides all those imperfections in our middle region. It’s long enough to cover the butt in the back. Pairs well with jeans, black pants or tights, or even a long black skirt as shown here.

New This Week at MaJe: Some Fabulous Jewelry!

New this week is this silver beaded necklace
A silver necklace with similar texture makes a perfect finishing piece

Having trouble figuring out what piece of jewelry to wear? In this case, we found a beaded silver necklace that’s perfect. The beads have a wavy texture, just like the top. The silver color continues the neutral theme of the top. The different shapes add interest without overpowering anything. The length is also good, meeting halfway between the chin and the bottom of the neckline. (Update 11/7: Sorry, but this necklace has found a home.)

Stay tuned for more tips on how to build your very own versatile jewelry collection! I’ll be offering more tips in future posts here.

In the meantime, here is more new jewelry!

New this week are these faceted gem earrings by Bill Booze
Two new pairs of striking earrings by Bill Booze

Rich hues are also new this week at MaJe, found in these lovely new earrings by Bill Booze. As you may recall, Bill is a master faceter. That means he buys stones rough, and carefully carves off each little ledge to create every facet. His more than thirty years of experience means 1) his stones are very high quality and 2) his skill brings out maximum sparkle.

On the left we have rhodolite garnets set in sterling silver. On the right is a pair of amethysts from the Four Peaks mine in Arizona with their characteristic deep hue filled with lively red and magenta flashes as the light hits them. These are also set in sterling silver.

New Fall Arrivals at MaJe Gallery – Unique Jewelry, Skirts

New Fall Arrivals

 

A new fall arrival is this unique ammonite and amber pendant was made by Bonnie AuBuchon
Ammonite and Amber pendant by Lynnwood’s master metalsmith, Bonnie AuBuchon

Two ancient natural substances become beautiful contemporary mates in this one-of-a-kind pendant by Bonnie AuBuchon. Amber is fossilized tree resin, has been appreciated for its color and beauty since Neolithic times.  Ammonites are fossilized sea creatures, similar to a nautilus. A master metalsmith, Bonnie created a flowing frame in sterling silver to unite the separate elements together. This is just one of our new fall arrivals. It hangs from a black leather cord measuring 17″

New fall arrival - a brushed silver necklace and earring set by Christophe Poly
Christophe Poly necklace and earring set

Also among our new fall arrivals is new jewelry by Montreal’s Christophe Poly. He studied architecture in college, then fell in love with the small scale of jewelry sculpture. One of the most popular jewelers at MaJe Gallery, this is one of the newest pieces in our new fall arrivals. Brushed silver and bronze with aqua cat’s eye stones, it sits on a 17″ double wire necklace with a magnetic clasp. (Update 10/12: Necklace now sold)

A new fall arrival: this necklace and earring set of bright silver with lavender cat's eye.
Another set by the popular Christophe Poly

Once familiar with the jewelry of Christophe Poly, it’s easy to recognize. This set is composed of bright, shiny silver, with one brushed silver circle on the right side. The lavender cat’s eye gives it a cool mood. Like above, this is also on the 17″ double wire with magnetic clasp.

New fall arrivals: more subdued skirts by Marcia Bloom
Fall skirts by Marcia Bloom

Also among our new fall arrivals are these fairly subdued skirts from our usually riotously colored skirts by California’s Marcia Bloom. As comfortable as always, these would all look great with your black boots this fall and winter.  One size fits 6 – 16. Don’t believe me? Stop by and see for yourself! (Update: These three are now sold out.)

New fall arrivals look great in this skirt, top and scarf
Outfit of the week for the first day of fall

Flummoxed about how to work with your Marcia Bloom skirt? Check out this one here with the lovely fall colors. We recommend pairing Marcia’s skirts with a solid-colored top. Pull the top and bottom together by selecting a second color from the skirt, and wear that as a scarf (or a necklace if you prefer). In this instance, we choose the medium brown from one of the stripes in the skirt and found a top in that color. Here is a Luxe Junkie 3/4 sleeve top in “mocha”. Next, we choose the brightest color in the skirt for the scarf – a rich terra cotta. This is a hand-painted silk scarf by our beloved Birgit Moening. (Update: this exact skirt has sold. However, we have one similar. It’s the same fabric in the body and hem. The waistband is a different fabric. Interested? I can send you a photo.)

Alternatively, wear a solid terra cotta top, and either a mocha or mustard scarf. By selecting higher contrasts, you make a very stylish statement with ease.
