Hot Stripes At MaJe Gallery

Hot Stripes Are Fun and Bold

Hot stripes are featured in this Megan Wrap from Florida's Inside Out Everyday.

Sizes



The Megan Wrap from Florida’s Inside Out Everyday is now available in this colorful striped fabric. Yes, it’s great in summer, but it might also be just the thing for the dreariness of February. Circular hem is shorter in front and longer in back, reducing the appearance of hips. Manya’s modeling it in these photos above showing the variety you can get when pairing it with different colored tops and black leggings.

Instead of leggings, how about a blue skirt?

Pair it with a long, blue skirt and white top for a refreshing look that will be perfect for your next outing. All three items now available at MaJe Gallery.

Introducing Our Newest Jeweler

When Christine Busch Lyons was still in college she found some old circus animal stamps in her grandparents’ basement one summer afternoon. As an art major with a specialty in metal work she found the stamps inspiring and used them in her work. These charming shapes can now be found at MaJe Gallery in Edmonds.

Light-weight and shiny silver, these are sure to attract admiring comments from complete strangers.

According to Christine, “I had the idea for the PussShe Cat design early one morning when I was half asleep. I got up and did a drawing and told my husband Glenn “we’ve got to make this!” I was so inspired by the Women’s March and the whole “Pussy Hat” phenomena. Also I love the design and quite frankly thought it might sell. Because of what we believe in, a portion of our sales of PussShe Cat jewelry will be going to Planned Parenthood and the ACLU.

Pendants also available.

A new box of the awesome basic T-shirts from Halo is arriving any day now, so stay tuned! Find out first by following us on Facebook!

Sky Blue Summer Jackets and Pants

Sky blue is an excellent color to include in your summer wardrobe. It’s fresh and clean, and looks great with at least half your closet.

The Reba jacket quickly rose to become Testimony’s most popular jacket. Why? Because it’s gorgeous, that’s why! And now, for a limited time, it’s available in this lovely shade of blue called “sky.”

By the way, I also have several pairs of Testimony’s narrow leg “Betty” pant in sky as well…. Don’t wait long if you want some!

New Summer Finds At MaJe

Summer inspires beach-themed jewelry
Summer means beach! Can’t go to the beach, then wear it!

Summer includes lots of time at the beach. How lucky we are here in Edmonds to have a lovely beach right down the street!  When you can’t be on the beach, you can wear elements of it instead.  These pendants, featuring a turtle and a starfish, were made by Judy Thompson, right here in Edmonds too.  Matching earrings available too!

Summer often means a journey
Things to remember on your life journey

If a journey is on your list this summer, here is a lovely, brand new painting by Julie Terrell that is full of excellent advice.  Keep these lovely things in mind as you travel, and as your journey through life.

Jewelry for your summer adventures
Jewelry for your summer adventures!

Summer jewelry often has a softer palette, such as this soft pink morganite. Look at all those facets! It is super sparkly. That’s the touch of our master, Bill Booze, who’s magic touch with faceting creates the most wonderful sparkle in all his gemstones. While this particular beauty found a home in mid-June, we have lots of other colored gemstones by Bill Booze for you to enjoy.  Stop by and have a look!

Summer tank dress for versatility and comfort
A versatile summer tank dress can be dressed up or down, and you remain oh so comfortable

A simple, long, black tank dress is something you can wear almost daily this summer. You can change the look by adding a scarf, or a different piece of jewelry. Wear it with flip flops. Pair it with strappy sandals and a lovely shawl for those special summer events.  It’s a perfect travel piece.

Then, when winter approaches, put a big cozy sweater over it with your favorite black boots, and presto!  You’re ready to go.
