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

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.
