I love the Fall – I know – it is not quite here yet, but you can feel it in the air and see it in the colours of the trees. Another sure sign of Fall is the new arrivals. And they are pouring in fast and furious right now!
I’ll start with the new and truly unique! Jul is a new designer. She works with natural materials; silver, ebony, rosewood and coconut are a few favorites . Her pieces are created in Indonesia, using “fair trade” methods. Emily and I met Jul at the TNNA, it was her first show and we were impressed with what we saw.
Jul creates buttons, Shawl Pins and other unique closures – we are still waiting for a couple of stunning hook and eye closures, large enough to close a cape or coat.
Jul freely shares some of the design credits with her 12 year old son. He designed the Turquoise Shawl Stick, one of Emily’s and my favorite Items.
I think that cinnamon stick must be a favorite of Jul’s, she uses it in two of the buttons and in one of the Shawl Rings. The buttons come in two sizes, large and small. You can see and smell the cinnamon in each Item! Come in and smell them for yourself!!
