FALL TRANSITION – TOPS

fall transition means great tops over leggings like this from Zen Knits
Black, white, tan print tunic

Sizes



The soft rayon jersey from Zen Knits feels great yet isn’t too heavy. This fun print in white, tan and black also features pockets in front. Loose in the torso, this top is perfect for hiding those pesky love handles that just won’t go away. Pair with black leggings. Add your favorite black boots when the weather cools down more.

FALL TRANSITION – JACKETS

Fall transition requires a great jacket like this rich gray from Color Me Cotton.
Textured deep gray jacket

We Northwest women know how a great jacket can complete an outfit. This rich gray textured cotton fabric is not only interesting, but it looks great on. Paired here over a burgundy tank with a black onyx necklace to accent. Simple, elegant, stylish, and oh yes, easy. Machine washable, great for travel. It also has very nice pockets!

Fall transition can be funky with this tie dye jacket from Zen Knits

Peridot Jewelry Plus Party Time

Peridot jewelry is what everyone is looking for these days. Not only is it the birthstone for all you August birthdays, but it is also a beautiful shade of green.

Peridot jewelry starts with the raw uncut gemstones
Raw, uncut peridot stones

Background of Peridot

Called “the extreme gem” by the Gemological Institute of America, Peridot is born of fire and brought to light, one of only two gems (Diamond is the other) formed not in the Earth’s crust, but in molten rock of the upper mantle and brought to the surface by the tremendous forces of earthquakes and volcanoes. While these Peridots are born of Earth, other crystals of Peridot have extraterrestrial origins, found in rare pallasite meteorites (only 61 known to date) formed some 4.5 billion years ago, remnants of our solar system’s birth. Peridot in its basic form, Olivine, was also found in comet dust brought back from the Stardust robotic space probe in 2006, has been discovered on the moon, and detected by instrument on Mars by NASA’s Global Surveyor. Ancients believed, quite accurately, that Peridot was ejected to Earth by a sun’s explosion and carries its healing power.

Artists Make Beautiful Peridot Jewelry

Peridot jewelry takes form by artisan Bill Booze
Stunning peridot set by Bill Booze

Many of you are aware of Bill Booze, our master faceter. Bill takes the raw stones, as in the photo at the top. He carves off each and every ledge, or facet, to bring out the maximum beauty of the stones. And did I mention how much they sparkle? Bill carves extra facets underneath to get crazy amounts of sparkle. No two alike, and this necklace and earring set here, in its unusual setting, is a perfect example. $700 for pendant, chain and earrings. (It goes up to $900 in September.)

Peridot Jewelry – Rings!

Peridot jewelry in 14k yellow gold
AAA grade Peridot in 14k yellow gold



Go for the gusto with this AAA grade peridot set in 14k yellow gold. This one is the most amazing peridot I’ve ever seen. The color, clarity, size and beauty are a “must see”. This ring is currently size 6 1/4, but we can make it any size you need within 2 weeks.  $900.

A Fun Outfit, A Pretty Dress, and Cool Jewelry

We unpacked some great new items this week including a fun outfit, a pretty dress, and cool jewelry from our top-selling artists. Let’s see what we got…

A fun outfit begins with great jeans and a simple T
A fun outfit begins with great jeans and a simple T

This summer, Testimony offers their awesome jeans in this lovely color called “sky”. It’s a lovely light blue that’s very classy! We just got a few of these in the “Betty” style, which has a narrower leg that’s also short. It’s a capri on you tall gals, and for us short ones, it means we don’t have to hem them up. I’ve got it paired here with the boat-neck, 3/4 sleeve T-shirt in “pink lemonade.”

A fun outfit could just be a great dress like this one from InsideOut
Super soft fabric in a great print

An elegant dress that doesn’t cling. Rather, it flows gloriously over the body making all who try it on feel like they immediately lost 20 pounds. You won’t believe how soft the fabric is. It falls just below the knee. This awesome print is called “Paris.”

Cool Jewelry

Our top-selling jewelry is made by Christophe Poly. He studied architecture in college, then fell in love with the small scale of jewelry sculpture. Notice the architectural influence in his designs.
