Magical Green Being The Magical Green Being is the purse of an artist, a oil man's wife, or the cowboy's chick. This cast acrylic resin purse, designed by the mother, daughter team, Maya, not only feels like it's from another time, it feels like it's from another planet. One of our favorites, The Magiacal Green Being has a lacey pattern, something like a butterfly's wings. The brass chain strap is beautifully bejewelled and also removable, so that you can carry the purse as a clutch. Replace the strap and hang it above your bed so that you can behold this treasure when you're not wearing it.

Alexander`s Wife Alexander was a poet, a master archer, and quantum mechanics theorist. His wife? she played the cello. She wore velvet when she wasn't riding her horse or flinging arrows with Alexander. Regularly, they would dress up for one another. It didn't have to be a special occassion...they simply enjoyed adorning themselves for their long chats, as they contemplated the cosmos, listened to the crickets, or kissed. She carried her lipstick, the small bone comb that Alexander made her, and a finely embroidered green handkerchief in her Black Art Nouveau purse. It was another gift you would have thought Alexander had brought from a Parisian antique dealer. In fact, it was designed by the famous mother, daughter team, Maya. Cast in black acrylic resin, with lace-like accents in antique gold and green.

The Pirate`s Chick Liquid Metal Bracelet She couldn't help herself...
her life had been so boring.
When she stumbled upon the French pirate's ship obscured in soft green willow trees, her heart raced like a horse headed for home. She was bundled on-board, like the night's favorite dinner catch. Indeed she wondered what their intentions were.
Suddenly, she felt his gaze, as he leaned in the door passage. With black hair pulled loosely back, and large curls tumbling down one side, his chiseled face was easy, cool and intelligent. When he invited her to sit with him, she didn't dream of refusing.
As she entered the cabin, the smell of sweet tobacco, leather and spices filled her. Several chests sat near a pile of rolled maps, at the side of the small table. His sensitive green eyes flickered...his tone was like a lullaby. It was then that she realized her life had switched paths...and that there were no other options.

The Pirate's Chick Bracelet was the first of the treasures he bestowed upon her lovely white wrist. Over the years of their Robin Hook-like adventures, it was always her favorite.

From his new Liquid Roots collection, this is a Liquid Metal bracelet, by the vastly talented, and not unlike the French Pirate himself, Sergio Gutierrez.

Comfortable, sensuous, and quite easy to wear with jeans or a gown.

The Pirate's Chick can go everywhere...even on the next adventure with your pirate!

Lioness Liquid Metal Necklace The Lioness is sleek, sure of herself, playful, and sexy.

She lays on a woman's collar, bending to her bone's subtle curves, kissing her pulsing hollow... swishing with every gesture.

The sister piece to the Flirtatious Flapper bracelet, this Liquid Metal Necklace is composed of silver-nickel plated ball chain fringe.

From the Liquid Metal Jewelry, Classic Collection, The Lioness travels well with whatever your style...cowboy boots and jeans, elegant heels and your favorite dress. I find it to be the most sensuous necklace. It was the first of my collection.

Ship`s Candlestick Antique Brass Once...about 15 years ago, I traveled to Italy on a tight budget.
I wandered into a medieval town with many towers, which hovered 1000 feet above sea level, just South of Florence, and North/West of Sienna.
Above the rolling hills of Tuscany, San Gimignano was a thriving Etruscan center in 200-300BC.
It began its life as a town in the 10th century taking its name from the Holy Bishop of Modena, St. Gimignano, who is said to have saved the village from the barbarian hordes.

I climbed to the top of the cobble-stoned village, and discovered a little antique shop with a sweet little old man.
I had never been so enchanted!
I left with one of the greatest treasures of my life. It was a wall mounted Ship's Candlestick that pivots with the movement of an ancient sailing vessel, in order to remain level. As a result of this particular feature, it doubles as a table-top candlestick.

Not long after I left, I began regretting not buying the sister piece; though I'd already spent two days of my food budget on the first one. For eight years, I regretted not buying that matching piece, until finally, I opened my shop, Studio Nouveau. On my first buying trip, I raced with great anticipation, back to the little old man in San Gimignano to see if, just maybe, the sister candlestick was waiting for me.

Much to my surprise, it was!!! The little old man told me that this was a reproduction of an Etruscan candlestick...now being reproduced in Florence.
It remains a personal favorite of all my hunts for "Objects of Beauty".

I use six of them at home...one on each side of my arched window, two on the tables at my bedside, one in the kitchen, and one in the living room, which I carry when the power goes out, or during my candlelit dinner parties.

These are my favorite gift to give couples...because they appear to be loved, universally, by men and women. They also come in silver-plate. (Find them listed separately.)
Our Del Mar, solid and richly colored beeswax candles are beautiful in these candlesticks.
The bad news is that this company has gone out of business and we now have very limited stock of these. BOOOO!
Measures 10" tall
4-3/4" Wide at base.
Molded hook on base adds 1/2".

Serpent`s Dream ~ Liquid Metal Snake Necklace Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is derived from the story of Cleopatra and Marc Antony.

After being defeated at the Battle of Actium on September 2, 31 BC, by Augustus Caesar (Also known as Octavius) and his formidable general, Marcus Agrippa, Cleopatra and Marc Antony fled to their home in Alexandria, the heart and soul of Cleopatra's vast and wealthy empire. It took some months before Octavius came for them. Several small battles were fought in the interim. Finally, as his army pressed upon them, Marc Antony tried and failed in one last battle. He heard news that Cleopatra was dead. Some say he heard that she was making arrangements to join Octavius. He fell upon his sword...the Roman' version of dying with courage. He was brought to Cleopatra's tomb, where she lay sealed, in waiting with all of Egypt's treasure. Her plan was to burn it to the ground if Octavius refused her son the right to rule Egypt.

Marc Antony was brought to her, bleeding to death. She had him hoisted through a window in the upper reaches of the tomb. He died in her arms. As she suffered the anguish of his loss, one of Octavius' soldiers was lifted through that same window. He captured her...dagger in hand. Within the next couple of weeks, Cleopatra conceded to join Octavius in Rome, provided that he allow her to properly bury Marc Antony in her tomb. She began an elaborate funeral ritual...with prayer, food and treasure offerings to accompany him in the afterlife. Amongst those goodies was a seemingly innocent basket of figs. Unbeknown to Octavius' soldiers, two Asps had been smuggled inside that fig basket and awaited their particular moment in history. The Asp is a small snake from the Cobra family. It is said that Cleopatra tested the venom of many poisons and poisonous snakes to see which caused the least pain. The victim of an asp bite becomes sleepy and euphoric, as they quietly pass into the underworld. Much to Octavius' dismay, two marks were discovered on the arm of a dead Cleopatra; the most exquisite of queens.

Cleopatra's patron goddess was Isis and thus during and for hundreds of years after her reign it was believed that she was the re-incarnation and embodiment of the goddess of wisdom. Cult tombs were found throughout Egypt and abroad, in honor of Cleopatra.
Cleopatra's life is one of the most romantic stories ever told. Besides being the lover and wife of the two most powerful men in the world's history, she nurtured a country from its knees to become the wealthiest of its time. A great lover of education, Cleopatra's Alexandria was the world's intellectual epicenter. Most people don't realize that Cleopatra had not a drop of Egyptian blood, but was of Greek/Macedonian decent. In addition to her native Greek tongue, she spoke 8 languages, wrote numerous books ranging from perfumery to medical treaties. She was an astute politician, businesswoman and I would imagine a ravishing lover.

Serpent's Dream is our homage to Cleopatra Wear it in her name. Wear it with honor, faith and integrity. Wear it with all the love you have in you!

Ventana Liquid Metal Bracelet Ventana Liquid Metal Bracelet

Still soul searching, treasure hunting or looking for the perfect love? When you lie down to nap, or find your mind wandering whilst you're in the middle of a task, you're often in an "Alpha" state. This is the perfect time for creating the reality you wish for. Allow yourself all the emotion you can muster. Believe it or not, this emotion conjuring is the mortar, the binding agent that forms our experience. How do I know that? Hmmm...it just seems to work!

From his Roots Collection, Sergio Gutierrez' somewhat geometric design, Ventana, is reminiscent of that porthole into the unknown, into the window of tomorrow's, or better yet today's dreams.

Studio Nouveau stocks the exquisite Light Rose Swarovski Crystal, but can order the following:
