New This Week: New Artist Sheri K Designs

New this week is Sheri K Designs blue ice quartz necklace
Blue Ice Quartz necklace by Sheri K Designs

We are pleased to welcome a new artist, Sheri K Designs, to MaJe Gallery this week. Sheri searches for unusual stones and components to create one-of-a-kind statement necklaces for the woman who loves distinctive adornments. Take this lovely blue necklace as a great example. Rough chunks of blue ice quartz are interspersed with silver filigree beads, turquoise and glass to finish in a lovely sterling toggle clasp for 18″ of beauty. Yours for just $148.

New this week is this stunning Afghani lapis lazuli necklace by Sheri K Designs
Stunning Afghani Lapis

Sheri K lets the beauty of this stunning matte Afghani lapis lazuli steal the show, interspersed with a single Swarovski crystal. Sometimes, the most simple necklace is the best answer, and Sheri delivers it here. Just $225.

New this week is this necklace of lava beads and silver filigree by Sheri K Designs

Our final example from Sheri’s collection of 10 pieces is this black and white stunner featuring lava beads (yes, they are made from actual hardened lava), sterling filigree and clear glass. It looks heavy, but both the lava and filigree beads are actually very light, so you get the look without the weight. Just $148.

New This Week: New Work by Kathryn Sherwood

New this week is this gorgeous example of nature's beauty, coleus by Kathryn Sherwood
2018 Fall Coleus Jewelry

Port Orchard, WA, artist Kathryn Sherwood grows all kinds of plants in her back yard. She then dries them and mounts them on glass so we can actually wear her natural wonders! Her coleus plants turned out especially beautiful this year and she is so excited to deliver a batch to us this week. Check out the beauty of nature yourself in this bracelet and earring combo which can be yours for just $78.

New This Week: For Dog Lovers!

Everybody knows that Edmonds is a dog-friendly town. You’ll see water dishes outside shop doors, and many a dog enjoys treats all along the way on both 5th Avenue and Main Street – including MaJe Gallery! So, when I saw these fabulous heavy-duty canvas totes made in Pennsylvania, I knew they’d be a big hit with Edmonds folk. And I was right!

New this week are new canvas dog totes by Eric & Christopher

Here are just three examples of the wonderful silk screened dog images you can find on these amazing totes. Made of super heavy duty cotton canvas, each one measures 6″ x 16″ across and 17″ high with double-stitching for extra strength. Perfect for your farmer’s market purchases or all your downtown Edmonds shopping. Just $35 each. More breeds available including Labrador, Boxer, Boston Terrior, Corgi, Husky, Golden Retriever, Pit Bull, and more. Stop by to see them all, and take one home for yourself. Also, these make a terrific gift for your dog-loving pals.

MaJe Tutorial: Put It Together Right!

Your closet is full of disparate clothing items. How to put them together creatively? Check out these two ideas and then see what you can do with the things in your closet.

MaJe Tutorial: put a print skirt with a solid top and jacket, then a unique necklace to tie it all together
Blue and Brown – put this together for fun

Pull any printed skirt out of your closet. Look at the colors in it. This one has blue and tan along with green, white, red and gray. It’s a one-of-a-kind skirt ($89) by Susie Howell in size medium. I liked the emphasis on blue and tan in the print, so I paired it with a tan cotton top ($32) from Necessitees in “sand”, and a crop denim jacket ($159) from Testimony in a medium blue. All are size medium. The final piece is the long 32″ necklace ($24) with a single blue stone to tie it all together. By focusing on the colors in the print, you can put together a great outfit that fits the Easy Elegance mantra.

MaJe Tutorial: Simply elegant classics pair up in a winning combination
Black, white and gray are always classic

For those of you who love black, white and gray, check out this charming combination from Morocco in hand-woven cotton separates. Loose capri pants ($120) in dark gray pair beautifully with the three blocks of fabric in the loose top ($98). While the two items are fine by themselves, they suddenly take on a whole new dimension with the one-of-a-kind found object art necklace ($88) by T.A. Ryder. This new line is a new favorite because of their generous cut and elegant drape. One size fits most.

Stay tuned to see what lovely treasures arrive next week at MaJe Gallery! Keep that Easy Elegance flowing!

This flattering top was dyed at the same time as the hoodie above, resulting in an awesome duo (see photo below). But you can purchase them separately too, because not all of you want both. The shape of this top is very flattering on many because of the generous torso and drape. 100% cotton, machine washable and great for travel.

Fun periwinkle top from Inside Out.

Here’s easy elegance for those of you who look best in cool tones like this periwinkle. It’s got black accents, thus will look great with black leggings or jeans. Funky accents set it apart from your typical T-shirt. Higher crew neck suits many of you too. 97% rayon, 3% spandex for a super soft feel and drapey texture. This top falls right at the hips, with a feminine flair at the hem. Yet another top that’s generous in the torso, it hides a lot of those little things we want to hide!

Check out these two subtle and beautiful new pieces composed by our own Shari Both. On the left, sparkly stones wrap around a silver oval frame, topped by a sapphire. An unusual chain mixes with more of the sparkly stones for a cohesive design.

On the right, wrapped labradorite chunks and hand-wrought silver squares and other stones form a lovely whole in oxidized sterling. Beautiful.

Shari is inspired by vintage jewelry and I think we can all see that influence in this lovely new design.
