55 Million Year Old Fossil Jewelry (or) How to Keep Birthdays in Perspective
Dear Friends: Fossils and gemstones make great birthday gifts, especially for those significant decade-change birthdays like 20, 30, 40...100. What's a mere 40 years when you're wearing a wonderful fossil or gemstone (on a handmade matching leather thong or sterling silver rope chain) that's still beautiful after 55 million years?
Fossil, agate, garnet & amethyst sterling silver pendant on a matching forest green leather thong, $78
That's what I call putting things into perspective.
Season changes are perspective-y as well. By late February life is so Russian novel...so long...so hopeless...and then, suddenly, you notice those tiny bumps on a desolate looking tree branch and life starts again.
Stop by to see our new (well...new from the 1920s - 1980s) things. Lime with flowers, light blue paisleys, navy with white polka dots...(but don't expect polka music..we're still into cool piano jazz and Brazilian songs).
