These little charmers have arrived in the shop from England :little leather purses to hold keys, change, little treasures. Shaped like acorns, hearts, apples, shells- perfect to house a gift of jewelry.

local talent

Many Portlanders have a piece- or several- in their jewelry troves made by Michelle Estell. Much of her work is bead-centered, but I like metals...and metals she brings. These new necklaces have a hint of Calder, if you ask me. The other joy of carrying her work is seeing her park her bicycle by the front door and hearing her bountiful laugh.
