New Arrivals! (Pendants, Books, Brooms)

Today is sunny and nearly 70 degrees in Brooklyn. After way too much cold and rain, it is finally feeling like Spring!

We have lots of new arrivals to match the springtime mood, especially some great pendants and necklaces that look beautiful on bare skin.

Also, if you've never found cleaning to be much of an aesthetic experience, get yourself one of the gorgeous handmade brooms by students of Berea College in Kentucky. They perform great and look even better.

We also have a new title in store, Tyger! Tyger!, from Enchanted Lion Books.

Come by to see for yourself this weekend, catch the Lisa Congdon show at Rare Device next door, then walk across Prospect Park and take in the cherry blossoms in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden...

The new line of embroidered and crocheted jewelry all handmade by Erica Schlueter ($72-$148)

I'm head-over-heels for this necklace of raw black diamonds and granite on oxidized silver by Julie Jerman-Melka ($365)

Sweet riverstone pendant with garnet on sterling silver by Julie Jerman-Melka ($92)

Necklace of raw white diamonds, citrine, and granite on sterling silver by Julie Jerman-Melka ($440)

Cherry blossoms adorn this pendant by Kristina Kada strung on silk kumihimo cord handmade by the artist's mother ($180)

Spring greens! Double-sided pendant by Alison Mackey (photo under clear resin in silver bezel, comes with silver neckwire), and her other work in the background ($100)

Beautifully illustrated (though not so easy to wear around the neck), this is a new title from Brooklyn's own Enchanted Lion Books ($16.95)

Brooms made by students of Berea College in Kentucky ($21-$28)

And finally, a peek at the tulips in the window that I bought at the farmer's market last weekend, along with some soft spring-friendly baby hats by `eko-logic ($28-$35).
