MaJe’s Fall Jewelry Extravaganza – Save 10% This Week

Unique jewelry, made by talented craftsmen in small studios across America, has the ability to capture your distinctive style in a way mass produced items cannot even approach. Thus we offer you our fall jewelry extravaganza at MaJe Gallery, featuring our newest one-of-a-kind arrivals.

The Statement Necklace

Druzy with petal pearls – one-of-a-kind necklace by Poppy

Statement jewelry need not be loud or in the style of Carmen Miranda. It need not even be huge. Take this one-of-a-kind necklace by Poulsbo’s Poppy Design. It features a stunning pendant of druzy quartz. Poppy enhanced the pendant with a beautiful strand of petal pearls in rich chocolate with luster of copper and bronze. Wear this with a range of colors including black, brown, brick, charcoal, taupe, olive and more. The high quality pearls will reflect in the color you wear.

Jewelry extravaganza like this Sculptural Necklace by Cheryl Parrott

While our first statement necklace is very elegant, the next one edges into the fun category. Our jewelry extravaganza series comes out to play with this unique piece by Edmonds’ own Cheryl Parrott. Using multiple strands of thin wire, Cheryl sculpts glass leaf beads and pearls into “branches”, from which dangles a hand-made raku clay bird in the center. It’s the kind of unusual piece that is sure to elicit admiration from complete strangers. You, too, could be party to sharing a moment of beauty with the world when you wear a piece like this. My favorite way to wear it would be over a white T-shirt with jeans!

The Subtle Necklace

Kenmore’s Shari Both has been making feminine power jewelry for many years now. Inspired by the beauty and simplicity of vintage jewelry, Shari channels that inspiration into her designs, resulting in simple yet powerful pieces for a woman who enjoys a subtle approach to her personal power.

This necklace features individually wire wrapped gray pearls on the sides with a row of sparkly faceted labradorite gems on a flat bar in the center. The gray tones let you wear it with anything. This type of necklace would work best with a scoop neckline in any color, as well as something with multiple colors that included a touch of gray or cream.

Jewelry extravaganza necklace of woven beads
Multi-colored woven beaded necklace

This simple, multi-colored woven beaded necklace measures 24″ making it the perfect go-to piece for every solid colored top in your closet. It’s a great length for scoop necks, V-necks, and even turtle necks. It’s multi-colored, yet the colors are subtle enough to work with any background color you’ve got. Made in Mt. Vernon, WA, by MaJe’s newest artist, Gail Thein.

Jewelry Extravaganza’s Bracelet Bravura

When it comes to jewelry extravaganza week at MaJe, bracelets are a big deal. A bracelet can be a more private piece of jewelry in the winter months, because our long sleeves typically cover it up. Yet there it is, making you feel like the strong, confident woman you are. We’ve got a style of bracelet for everyone. Check out these offerings.

Three bracelets – similar but for the colors – are also made by Gail Thein, whose woven necklace you saw above. These are such fun, and add some sass to your outfit of the day. Larger beads in two strands, leading into a single strand, and closed with a vintage button.

Jewelry extravaganza bracelet of carved jade and pearls

A carved jade ball takes center stage with the triple-strand pearl bracelet by Poppy Design. The neutral tones means you can wear it with many things. The elegant design suits those who enjoy elegance and a touch of class.

This silver hand-linked bracelet is one of those you can put on and just never take off. It goes with everything, is very comfortable, and stays polished if you wear it a lot.

Jewelry Extravaganza’s Earring Fiesta

Our jewelry collection at MaJe Gallery features an eclectic array of earrings. We’ve got something for everyone. Here’s a peak at just a few.

Elegant shapes are joined together in this compelling pair of simple sterling silver earrings, made by our very own Manya Vee. Not too long and not too short, these are perfect go-to earrings for everyday. Great for travel too – you only need this one pair for the whole trip!

Jewelry extravaganza earrings in mixed metals
Two artists in mixed metals – two great pairs of earrings

Many enjoy the look of mixed metals these days. Check out these two earrings by two different artists. On the left, we have Portland’s Joseph Brinton and his silver, bronze and copper circles, held together by a pair of gold-fill rings. Light-weight and easy, there’s no wonder this artist does so well with his jewelry!
On the right, we have Christophe Poly’s work. Graduating with a degree in architecture, Christophe went on to fall in love with the small scale of jewelry sculpture. Using aluminum and bronze, his earrings are light-weight and feature nice movement. This pair has a dark gray cat’s eye stone.

Need color? Never fear! Colorful earrings are here!

Silver and mixed metal earrings are interesting and versatile, but sometimes you just want a splash of color, right? Never fear! We’ve got you covered there too. On the left is an olive stone encased in goldtone metal by Seattle’s Jem’s Jewelry. We have a large collection of these little gem drops in a wide assortment of colors. And they’re just $32 each, too!

Need color with a bit of funk? Then look no further than the mismatched sterling wire work of Passiko. Even the glass beads she uses are made on Washington’s peninsula. These range in price from $32 – $48.

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.

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.
