Julia Szendrei Jewelry Collection
Julia Szendrei Jewelry Collection
Local San Francisco-maker Julia Szendrei excels at crafting discrete but powerful everyday pieces, like her Morse code necklace (the code spells out ‘L-O-V-E’), showcase slices of raw diamond, laser cut to accentuate the natural facets of the stone. Finding her inspiration in the coastal lifestyle of her childhood, Szendrei uses these and other semi-precious gemstones — opals, lapis, and rose quartz — as her foundation, selecting each for their radiance and ancient meaning. The result is luminous jewelry that’s bright and shiny enough for any special occasion, but refined enough to lend a casual elegance.

Multi Tone Mohair Throw
Multi Tone Mohair Throw
What is Mohair? It’s the long, silky hair from the Angora goat. But why? Mohair is one of the most versatile textiles. It’s soft and cozy like wool, without the itch! Mohair can be twisted and bent without damage to the fiber; it is the most durable animal fiber. Best of all it’s natural. We think these characteristics make for a perfect blanket. Made in Finland.
