Handknit Recycled Silk Jellybean Wristlet

Made by: Rosy Toes Designs


These beautiful little evening wristlets are hand knit from recycled sari silk yarn in a rainbow of colors, from a beautiful jade green, to a lovely snow white. The lining is crafted from sari silk remnants or peace silk, depending on my availability. The drawstring strap is a lovely hand dyed silk ribbon.

A perfectly lovely pouch that would do well as a bridesmaid’s gift, small bride’s pouch, wristlet at the prom, or an evening out. They are elegant in their simplicity.

The yarn itself inspired the pouch. I wanted to create something with just the right drape and a slight teardrop shape. I couldn’t be happier with how these jellybean wristlets turned out! You’ll also find that your pouch will gain in softness and beauty the more it is used!

Due to the nature of the yarn, each of these beauties is unique and a little bit different. No two balls of yarn used to craft them are exactly alike.  The yarn is fair trade and spun by small women’s coops in Nepal and India. The new silk remnants are gathered, sorted, teased by hand and spun to create the yarn.

Ocean Dreams Fine Art Print


Made by: Maleah Torney Photography


Ocean Dreams, a dreamy, nautical, 5×5 fine art photography print, professionally matted on a white background. This image was taken at Heceta Beach in Florence, Oregon by west coast photographer Maleah Torney. I happened to be on the beach snapping photos of the ocean, as I often love to do, and suddenly a large flock of seagulls flew into my picture just as I was snapping the shutter button! It was the perfect effect to add to the coastal feeling this image evokes. A dreamy and magical feeling that will take your mind away to another time and place of solitude.

Ohio Flint & Argentium Sterling Silver Pendant


Made by: Angie’s Jewelry Design


The stone in this pendant is Ohio Flint, which is particularly distinctive because of its bright coloration. It’s found only along an 8 mile ridge in Southeast Ohio. For thousands of years, Ohio Native Americans used the flint from Flint Ridge to create stone tools. They traded them with other Native Americans across the continent. Archeologists have found them as far west as the Rocky Mountains and south to the Gulf of Mexico.

I was visiting family in Ohio a few years ago and took a drive across the state to visit Roy Miller, who owns one of the few Ohio Flint quarries. I didn’t get to visit the quarry, but I did see Roy’s work shop. Roy is a flint knapper – he’s well known for the spear points he creates. He uses the ancient technique of shaping tools by painstakingly chipping off flakes of stone. I walked away knowing a little bit about knapping and with some nice pieces of flint. I’ve since been back to see Roy and acquire some more of this beautiful stone.

Each stone is hand-cut, using lapidary techniques of sawing, grinding, sanding & polishing, so each pendant is unique. For a casual look wear it on a leather cord. Or it dresses up beautifully on an Omega chain.

Tarnish-resistant Argentium® Silver was used in creating the pendant.
