Seeking limitless possibilities, she creates her signature metal and gemstone jewels with unique textures, patterns and contrast. We're so excited to be carrying her new line of chunky necklaces and earrings, we think she has created some of her best work to date!

Ayala Bar
Intricate Design

Ayala Bar has done it again with her new fall line! You know that her jewelry is beautiful, and that she re-designs every six months, making each piece a limited edition, but did you know she also creates very limited editions on top of that? We have 2 of these beauties currently in the gallery! They each have their own numbers and a signature card from Ayala herself. Using fabrics, beads, crystals and stones, Ayala has created her signature style through her choice of materials. Each is sure to be a conversation starter. We actually hear that our clients are stopped on the street by admirers of their fabulous neckware.

Mary Hammond
Delicate Artistry

Woodland Scarf

Some artists use paintbrushes, others, pastels - Mary Hammond's medium is thread in all forms. Using unique fabrics to map out her ideas and sewing over it to complete the design, Mary creates beautiful, delicate scarves that are stunning on or off the body. Roses, leaves, even faces can be found amongst her colorful patterns. If you don't wear scarves, why not dress up your home with a scarf that doubles as a table-runner? Or frame one up and hang it on your wall - Karen is doing just that for one of her many projects!
