spratters_jane_ss11_thumb.pngFor their upcoming spring 2011 collection, Spratters & Jayne has switched out their beloved chunky knit scarves for easy cotton gauze and ultra-fine bamboo jersey options. As much as we loved their cozy winter styles, we’re super excited to try their new pretty scarves woven into braids and chains. Here’s a preview - the full collection will be available at this spring!


peaceimages_thumb.pngDesigned in San Diego, the Peace Images jewelry collection is true wearable art. Every piece has an unexpected twist, like a pair of long, bright feathered earrings or a uniquely shaped toe ring. 



saintvintagedesigns.pngSaint Vintage Designs features handmade jewelry with a combination of vintage embellishments, such as semi-precious stones, Swarovski crystals, antique glass, beads and pearls. Atlanta-based designer Paige Jansen has been a lover of art and antiques her whole life, so her career path was a natural choice. Whenever she sits down to create a piece, she envisions the time and location the antique elements came from for inspiration. Her goal is to tell a piece’s story, as well as create something original and beautiful. A survivor herself, Jansen also donates a portion of every sale to cancer research. Shop the collection at

Made in a small Portland studio, El Jardìn jewelry is quirky and cute. The designer uses silver to create pendants shaped like various objects, including scissors, cat eye sunglasses, and buttons. They come in cute, convenient storage pouches and the necklace chains can be customized to your preferred length. Here are some of the pieces available in the shop now:
