Since you asked:

"Therefore, to be possess'd with double pomp, to guard a title that was rich before, to gild refined gold, to paint the lily,
to throw a perfume on the violet, to smooth the ice, or add another hue unto the rainbow, or with taper-light
to seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish, is wasteful and ridiculous excess."

~William Shakespeare,
ca. 1595

Yup, that's us.

Ringing in the new year...

We're ringing in the new year with these awesome little hand cast brass Tibetan bells. I found some of these last year and they went fast, so you can imagine how delighted I was to find these with a vendor of mine... 

They make the sweetest, purest sound! Our little silver Afghan bells that we have from time to time rely on jingling against each other to elicit a sound, but each one of these creates a crisp little ringing. I am in love with them!

They'll make lovely additions to any necklace, bracelet or anklet (or even a ring!), and since they are raw brass, they can be aged beyond their natural patina. We've had so much fun creating with old Thai medals lately, as well as the Afghani nomad pieces we brought in for the trunk show, and these are just the icing on the cake...
