 THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
 
 
 
 
We dedicated our last newsletter to highlighting the trunk show, but we're not quite done talking about it yet. The show came and went with great success! But y'all aren't the only ones that got to do a bit of shopping. We picked up a few items of our own to share with those of you who missed the sale. We purchased stone, glass and unique styles of firepolish beads! Stop by the showroom to see the full stock.

Is national bracelet month a thing? If not, we nominate June as tribute! From Chinese coin bracelets, to howlite pieces for your wrists and your ankles, we are up to our ears in new bracelets. There are so many, it's just easier to show you! Plus, eyeglasses chains! Get a closer look at our bracelets by visiting the showroom or checking us out on Instagram
