Every week brings new arrivals of treasures to find at MaJe Gallery. This week’s treasures include a lovely new jewelry collection from the eclectic Poulsbo artist, Poppy. Poppy is constantly on the lookout for unusual components to include in her work, from vintage finds to Taxco silver to delectable pearls and gems. She never makes two pieces the same.
If you’re a fan of the Sundance catalog, then two of her current pieces might be of special interest to you. Unlike the Sundance catalog, no one else will ever have these!
On the left, variously shaped white pearls mix with a whole variety of sterling silver chains. It’s long enough to wear doubled, tripled, or quadrupled as shown here. The neutral tones go with just about anything. This is most definitely not your mother’s pearls.
On the right, a four-strand bracelet features one row of labradorite rondelles. A cable chain is adorned with a pair of amber beads, while another chain features a coin-shaped picture jasper bead. The fourth row has blue coral ovals captured between oval sterling chain links. The toggle clasp makes it adjustable for 7.25″ – 8.25″. Alas, this found a home on June 11, 2016.
Local artist Julie Gangler loves to incorporate color and texture into her paintings. Among our new arrivals is her latest one, After The Rain II, is oil on board. Julie used a small palette knife to add texture to different areas, making the visual impact quite compelling. It’s so yummy you can almost smell that unique smell that comes after a recent rainfall in a meadow.
Perhaps our favorite of the new arrivals is a new collection of delightful skirts by our favorite skirt-maker, Marcia Bloom, just arrived. These are all cotton, and each features a pocket! Most of the pockets have a bit of vintage handkerchief appliqued onto the surface.
The soft blues and whites in this skirt make it the perfect skirt for your summer explorations. I paired it with a Luxe Junkie tank top in “sea”, and the ivory bolero by Testimony. When ordering the bolero, be sure to note your size. At the moment, I only have XS, L and XL in stock. I can definitely order other sizes. Just let me know!
Five more cotton skirts await your fancy! Stop by to check them out. They are simply to die for.
