It’s cold outside! So yes, you could wear your puffy coat that you and a million other people got at Costco, or, your could wear this elegant faux fur coat inspired by Audrey Hepburn, and hence named the “Hepburn.” It’s even reversible. Available in size small, which fits sizes 4 – 7, the coat length is 32″ from the center back neckline to the bottom edge. $325. Coordinating fingerless gloves also available for $29. This particular jacket sold, but we’re happy to order one for you! Just call!

The simple elegance of a bygone era can be invoked by wearing this faux fur ivory stole to your next event. It’s 82″ long and 14″ wide, hence it is the perfect length and width for multiple wearing options. Just $89. This is the second of our five beautiful looks!

Long and Elegant

One of the five beautiful looks for your holiday 2016 is the elegant long Victorian jacket by Testimony Los Angeles. We currently have this color, “asphalt”, in stock,  a mineral wash black which makes it much more interesting than a plain black coat. The cut minimizes hips and buttocks, which creates a slender profile for all. Made of French Terry, it is 94% cotton and 6% spandex and as a result, it washes up beautifully in the washing machine. What could be better?

Five beautiful looks like the "gilet" vest from Testimony Los Angeles

Even though it is shown here with a sleeveless top, making us all feel chilled in our winter weather, the “Gilet” vest from Testimony Los Angeles is rather an excellent layering piece for our currently cooler temperatures. The top-selling “latte” color shown make it especially relevant as an excellent neutral for those who wear warm tones. XS and X still available as of 2/24/17. Call to order.

Outfit of the Week

Best Holiday Outfit for 2016

Our “Outfit of the Week” for holiday 2016 is here! The two-layer skirt in black featuring a sheer outer layer over a black underskirt is one-of-a-kind by Marcia Bloom. The superior drape is a result of quality fabric cut in a full circle. Paired here with a maroon tank by Luxe Junkie and the ever-popular and versatile bolero jacket by Testimony Los Angeles. All you need are strappy sandals or tall black boots. Finally, notice the festive necklace I chose, which handily brings all three parts together as an outfit. Priced individually $65 – $175, get all four pieces for $366. Update 1/2/17: Skirt is now sold out.

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

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

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.

The Newest Artistic Jewelry at MaJe

You could wear jewelry that a million other women are wearing.  Or… you could wear some of the newest artistic jewelry that just arrived at MaJe Gallery this week. And the best part? Frequently, the price would be the same as you paid for a mass produced item.

Take these popular earrings by Northwest artisan Passiko, for example.

“Best Friend” earrings by Passiko

According to Passiko, these earrings are like best friends.  Why? Because in the same way that your best friend has many similarities to you, you are also not exactly the same.  Rather, you compliment each other perfectly.

Made uniquely of sterling silver wire and hand-made glass beads (also made in the northwest), no pair is like any other.  More colors and shapes now available at MaJe Gallery.

New Artist Brett Mathewson

For those of you interested in the metaphysical qualities of stones, larimar is said to awaken feminine power and soothe emotions.

The pendant includes a 24″ sterling silver snake chain.  The ring is a size 8.

Bretth Mathewson's "trillium" earrings are among the newest artistic jewelry at MaJe Gallery

Elegant simplicity characterizes Brett’s jewelry, as seen in her “trillium” earrings. Very light-weight, yet creating a stunning presence on your ears, her “trillium” collection is not only easy to wear, it is also simply beautiful. You can even watch this video about how to put on these lovely earrings.

Master Faceter Bill Booze

Two stunning new rings from Bill Booze highlight his expertise in faceting - the perfect addition to your artistic jewelry collection
Two new rings from our master faceter, Bill Booze

No jewelry collection is complete without at least one ring from Bill Booze. Striking in their simplicity, Bill’s expertise lies in his 30+ years experience faceting colored gemstones. Bill includes additional facets beneath each stone to elicit maximum sparkle in his line of artistic jewelry. Naturally, he chooses only the finest stones to begin with as well.

On the left, we find a large amethyst from the Four Peaks mine of Arizona, noted to be among the finest producers of amethyst in the world. Noted for their deep color, while also having vibrant notes of red and magenta, these are lively stones indeed. This particular amethyst is set in a curved sterling band. Let us know your size, and we’ll get it to you in a size that fits.

On the right, you’ll find three tourmalines: seafoam, sage green, and olive green. What a gorgeous sterling setting it is, too. This is a glorious ring. I do hope you’ll stop by to see it in person. Just let us know your ring size, and we’ll get it to you in that size.

Outfit Of The Week

Our outfit of the week is a bit sassy

Marcia Bloom is noted for her funky skirts, and this one is no exception. Marcia can combine the most disparate of fabrics together to create a wonderful combination that is fun and light-hearted. This one-of-a-kind skirt is perfect for summer and is paired here with a lavender Luxe Junkie tank, you could totally change the personality of this outfit by exchanging the lavender tank for a coral, lime green, turquoise, or royal blue one.

And check out that incredible pearl and sterling super long necklace by Poulsbo’s Poppy Design. Wear it double, as shown here. Or triple it. Or quadruple it. Simple fantastic.  Another example of our artistic jewelry, only to be found at MaJe Gallery.
