Your Perfect Bag: Danny K
Made in Hollywood, California, these high quality tapestry bags are light weight from the beginning, to reduce wear and tear on your body. Here are four styles in a lovely new blue fabric for summer.
Many other fabric options available at MaJe Gallery.
If you like a bag that’s more wide than deep, then your perfect bag might be one of these two. On the left is the Large Zipper Bag, which is 12″ wide x 8″ high and 3″ deep for a spacious inside to hold all your stuff. You can organize it, too, because of excellent pockets such as a full-length zipper pocket on the back exterior of the purse as well as a zipper pocket inside. Two outer pockets are open for easy access to your phone, keys or sunglasses. The 54″ adjustable strap is also removable. (SOLD!)
On the right is the Zipper Bag, a smaller but no less versatile option for those who prefer to carry fewer items. 10″ wide x 7″ high and 2.5″ deep, you can compactly carry quite a lot in this popular gem of a bag. It closes with a zipper and has a full-length zipper pocket on the exterior as well. Another zipper pocket is in the interior, as well as an extra-long adjustable 60″ strap.
For others, your perfect bag might be narrow and deep like the Bella Bag on the left. At 9″ wide x 10″ high and 2.5″ deep, this is a great-looking bag with excellent function. A full-length exterior zipper pocket is in addition to an open pocket that goes the full depth of the bag, making it perfect for a water bottle or your cell phone. A zipper top keeps everything safe and another zipper pocket on the interior keeps small things in place. Finally, there is a 54″ adjustable and removable strap. (SOLD!)
On the right, the Cell Phone Bag is all you need for a walk. Designed to hold even the new, larger cell phones in the outer open pocket, you see another zipper pocket to hold your keys, credit card or ID nice and safe. Once again, it features an adjustable, removable strap. For just $24, this is an excellent bag when all you need is the basics. (SOLD!)
Your Perfect Bag For Your Cell
Here are three choices for the Cell Phone Bag: Blue Leaf, Paris, and Meowzer. Dimensions in above paragraph. Just $24. These three have sold, but others are still available in the shop.
Your Perfect Bag: The Perfect Tote
A beautiful, functional Tote BagFor some of you, your perfect bag is nice and big enough to fit everything you might possibly need on any given day. Carry all your treasures in style with the Joy Tote by Danny K. A secure zipper closure protects it all, while three outer pockets keep those oft-used items easy to access. Coming in at 16.5″ wide x 10.5″ high and 5″ deep, it holds a lot with style. Durable shoulder straps keep it firmly in place, too. Two options now available: the blue/green pattern on the left and the black and white on the right. Just $75 each.
Your Perfect Bag For The Market

As an homage to these wonderful friends of ours, enjoy our new collection of strong canvas totes that are perfect for your Saturday market finds, grocery shopping, or a day at the beach. Each is screen-printed by hand in Pennsylvania. (UPDATE: As of 6/5/18, only the English Bulldog is left. However, a new order is on the way with the other two, as well as many more.)

Perfect Jewelry For Your Perfect Bag
Now, it just wouldn’t be right if we stopped at bags. How about some awesome new jewelry? Introducing international award-winning jeweler Renee Blackwell and her simple, glorious pendants.
Combining magnificent stones with vintage Swarovski crystals, Ms. Blackwell creates a mesmerizing combination of sparkle and matte. On the left, pale green gaspeite in a matte finish is set off brilliantly with a citrus crystal above. On the right, faceted rhodonite gets a lavender champagne crystal above. All are bezel set in sterling silver with a large bail atop just waiting for a neck ring or wide silver chain. $260 each.
These two pendants by Renee Blackwell feature vintage glass as well as crystals. On the left, a crystal on top sits above a vintage German glass button in black and gold. $390. At the button, hand-painted glass makes a lovely finish. On the right, a vintage glass Chinese button reveals a lovely dragonfly beneath a clear vintage crystal. $375 and $260.
One of the last 5-drop pendants Ms. Blackwell will make, this 5charming statement pendant starts with an aqua blue vintage crystal at the top, followed by amazonite, pearl, sodalite and chrysoprase. Sure to elicit oohs and ahs from friends and strangers alike, this beauty is waiting for the perfect home. $550.
Outfits Of The Week
Not one, but two outfits are offered this week for your enjoyment.
Classic, casual and comfortable is the way we like it at MaJe Gallery because that fits our Easy Elegance motto to a T. In this outfit, black/white/gray trousers are a bit wider, which is much more comfortable in warmer weather than clingy leggings of heavy jeans. Pair it with a sassy white top with three cutouts at the neck, a pretty necklace, and a classic Panama hat in soft gray.
Do you love blue? Me too. For a special summer wedding or evening party, wear this denim blue circle skirt by Marcia Bloom with a white tank top, this french terry “coco” jacket by Testimony, and a one-of-a-kind chalcedony lariat necklace by Poppy Designs.
Summer items are arriving almost daily now, so stay tuned for our next installment!
Easy elegance is our goal here at MaJe Gallery. Easy sometimes means versatile pieces that look great together and can also be worn with other things in your closet. A great example is this week’s outfit which is a skirt + top + jacket for a wonderful summer outfit you can take anywhere.
Skirt + Top + Jacket
All fabrics are luscious rayon jersey for soft comfort. The periwinkle, mint green and black print in the skirt is full of lively movement. Calm that down with solid coordinating pieces like this periwinkle tank top and a black shrug. Bring some of the green up with a green chalcedony pendant to pull it all together. Get the jacket here, and the skirt and top below.
Here it is without the jacket so you can see everything clearly. This outfit is so comfortably, you might just wear it all summer long! Pair the skirt with a black top, or even mint green. Wear the tank with jeans, or how about your favorite white pants? The versatility is perfect because I know how much you like to be practical.
A Great New Top
This particular top looks great on so many different body shapes, and it just arrived in this enticing new magenta shade – just in time for summer! The CMC (Color Me Cotton) cowl top features 3/4 sleeves in a tunic length, making it particularly excellent to wear over black leggings or skinny jeans. It doesn’t wrinkle, making it an excellent choice for travel. Just $89. These never last long, so if you like it, don’t hesitate!
What Else Is New?
In addition to the lovely skirt + top + jacket, I have a new line of purses I think you’ll really enjoy.
Yep, you read that caption correctly: upcycled leather purses exude artistic flare and excellent craftsmanship. This is such an awesome way to make good use of things other throw away, don’t you think? New leather prices consistently rise, making even a simple bag rather expensive. These creative folks found a great way to piece together leather remnants to make durable, stylish handbags that suit your needs well. With a variety of sizes, shapes and number of pockets, you’ll surely find a perfect one for yourself. Priced $38 – $98.
This little cutie is a front and back image of one of the new purses in our upcycled leather collection. It is 8″ high x 6″ wide with an adjustable leather strap that’s also removable so you can use it as a clutch or throw it into a larger bag. Zipper top opens to a spacious inner body that has another pocket. A second outside zipper pocket helps keep everything organized. This is the perfect purse for those who like a small bag. $38.
This is another little bag, but a bit larger than the one above. It’s called the Harley. This one measures 8″ high x 6.5″ wide, but it is also 1″ deep offering more room in the interior. In fact, the buckle reveals a small front pocket and an outside zipper pocket. There are two deep pockets inside with a zippered small pocket in the middle. Use the strap for a shoulder or cross-body hands-free situation, or streamline it as a clutch. $58. (SOLD!)
This beautiful mid-size handbag, the Vivo, features the upcycled leather collage on a durable frame. A wide shoulder strap makes for a comfortable, hands-free solution – or remove it to use the bag as a clutch. The front panel opens to reveal a spacious interior with one zipper pocket and one open pocket. $98.
Thanks for enjoying our newest arrivals this week at MaJe Gallery. Stay tuned for next week!
What mom wants for Mother’s Day is time, peace and love. A little appreciation would be nice too! Our moms work hard to make our lives safe, happy and trouble free. We’ve got some ideas to help you give some of that back to her this Mother’s Day.
What Mom Wants
As mom gets older, it gets more difficult to work those tiny little clasps on her favorite necklaces. This year, give her the chance to replace those with easy magnetic clasps that even work with the most arthritic of fingers. For just $10 per necklace, Manya will remove the difficult clasp and replace it with a silver or gold magnetic clasp. She’ll be so happy to be able to easily wear her favorite necklaces again! Give her a gift certificate for as many clasps as you want and let her choose which necklaces she wants to put them on. Stop by or call to have your gift certificate mailed anywhere in the world.
What mom wants is to keep her family close to her heart all day, every day. Give her a collection of charms with initials or names so she can wear it daily. Choose from a variety of shapes and metals, add a tiny sterling heart or perhaps the birthstones of each loved one. Make it uniquely hers by choosing a special selection yourself.
Mom Wants Your Heart
What mom wants is your heart, so give it to her in the form of a Swarovski crystal! Shown here in “red magma”, we also have crystal AB and astral pink colors available. All come with a sterling silver 18″ chain as well as coordinating earrings.
Mom Wants To Be Pretty
A gorgeous scarf with coordinating necklace and earrings is another thing mom wants. Check out our extensive collection of scarves from various artists, and get Manya’s help pairing it with a necklace and/or earrings to come up with the perfect combo.
Mom Wants Chocolate
What mom wants is chocolate! These are so delicious, you might have to indulge in some for yourself as well. Spokandy has been making gourmet chocolate treats since 1913, and we have an excellent selection for you to choose from. It’s healthy too, now that we know that eating a bit of dark chocolate each day is good for your heart!
Mom Wants Her Garden
If your mom happens to be a gardener, then she’d adore a Garden Blessing to stake into the center for all to enjoy. These fused glass beauties are great because glass won’t fade in the sun, like nearly everything else. It’s a perfect way to honor her tender care for her plants, just like she put all that love into growing YOU.
These ideas and more await you at MaJe Gallery. Let us help you figure out what YOUR mom wants this Mother’s Day!
