I Want the World to Be Glass….

$_57

“If you treat glass right, it doesn’t crack. If you know the properties, you can make things; the color of dusk and night and love. But you can’t control people like that and I really, really wish you could. I want the world to be glass.” (Cath Crowley, Graffiti Moon).

On Venice’s famed isle of Murano, glass masters keep alive the art of lampworking. Each of the beads in these graceful Murano earrings is individually made over a hot flame, uno alla volta.

A unique, individual, antique, dusk coloured pair of luscious earrings, available here!

Sarah Coventry – ‘For the Woman Who Dares to be Different’!

2015-03-02 16.09.51

Charles Stuart founded Sarah Coventry Jewelry in 1949, named after his granddaughter.

Stuart was very forward thinking for his time.

He had no in-house designers, but relied on out sourcing from freelancers. He then put these designs out to be made in various local factories, rather then having his own manufacturing base. He was also quite innovative in his selling techniques, replicating the Tupperware and Avon models, using house parties to get people talking about his affordable jewellery, using the strapline – ‘Dare to be Different’!

This word of mouth marketing strategy made Sarah Coventry one of the most popular jewellery brands of the 20th Century.

You can own an affordable – dare to be different – piece of history, and a signed antique of the future by clicking on these beautiful earrings.

We’re talking Michael Monet here, not Claude.

Although there is something quite impressionistic about the finish and texture of these lovely earrings:

Around the time that Claude Monet was putting the finishing touches to his water lillies at Giverny, Michael Monet was launching his costume jewellery business with just $4 to his name.
