An Afternoon of Silver Tea Trays…

In preparation for our upcoming LA jaunt, we’ve been scouring local thrift and antique shops for goodies we can use for our booth display.  These silver plated trays were a spectacular find this afternoon, despite requiring some hours’ worth of polishing with silver cleaning pads!  The results?  A much improved shine….

Oliver’s Gift Guide ~ Holiday 2012

oliver rue de la marguerite picks

It’s the holidays, and Oliver has been ‘meowing at the bit’ to proffer his very own gift guide for this holiday season.  So, we’re proud to unveil his picks for 2012 and hope they inspire, motivate and overall please everyone on your list this year.  And please remember to shop well, as 10% of our holiday sales will be donated to the ASPCA’s Hurricane Sandy efforts as they continue to help those furry ones in need.

  1. 2 > 1 “…    Oliver may be a cat, but he’s a very smart cat and knows that his happiness, in part, is dependent on keeping Molly, the sole female in the house and deliverer of cat chow, pleased.  Fellas, the same goes for the special ladies in your life.  So treat her to something uniquely spectacular this year, like a lovely Vintage Watch Key Necklace & Earrings Set, because two is always better than one.
  2. Make it personal “…    Ollie often feels that everything in life should revolve around him.  And only him.  But over time, he’s learned to accept that there are other felines in the house and thus, must share Molly’s attention with others.  Yet the cat has a point when it comes to gifting, that point being that personalized items are often far more meaningful and make the giftee’s day that much more special.  So pick up a few money clips for the hunks in your life this holiday season, personalizing them by choosing the country of choice for the male in mind.  They’ll dig ’em, Oliver promises!
  3. Be not confused, a card works just as well “…    Sometimes it’s hard to know what to get for that one relative, in-law, co-worker or friend.  Oliver has that same indecision when it comes to figuring out which napping perch in which to take his afternoon siesta.  So he understands the frustration of shopping for such people, so he recommends a delectable gift card for those ‘hard to buy for’ souls.  Just contact Oliver’s human, Molly, and you can quickly knock this off your holiday list!
Oliver. He likes to pose.

Oliver. He likes to pose.

Be sure to check out all the Holiday 2012 Collection items and please, shop well, so we can donate even more to ASPCA’s Hurricane Sandy efforts!  May your holidays be warm, merry and full of furry love.

Rockin’ show at La Encantada!

We felt super cool this past weekend at the Fine Art Festival at La Encantada in Tucson, as we were met with our first set of repeat customers from a year ago to date, PLUS a slew of brand new fans and compliments that have us still blushing with appreciation.  We’re also pumped about our new online store, renovated with vast improvements from design to navigation to product catalog.  Stay tuned for our Holiday Sales beginning NEXT WEEK!

Greetings from LA, plus our Nina Designs Blog Partnership!

Bonjour nos amis, from the city of angels and more….

This week we’re frolicking around Los Angeles and enjoying the west coast surf, sun and jewelry fun. As we visit our favorite shops, we’ll also be spreading the r.d.l.m. love to local boutiques and, cross your fingers and paws, hopefully lots of them!  Wish us luck and catch us up on our return to the southwest Arizona desert next week!

AND, a little something extra to feast your eyes on….

Below are the wondrous creations we put together utilizing some splendid pieces from Nina Designs!  We’re big fans of the findings as well as the silk threads, and were excited to be partner up with their blog to showcase some goodies!   We’d love to know which ones YOU like best, so comment away!

From left: VNT2232 · Natural Bronze Earring Finding, VNS2721 · Natural Bronze Small Bubble Link, VNS2526 · Natural Bronze Lotus Marquis Pendant.

 

SILKA · Thin Silk Cord for Jewelry, in aqua, works great interwoven with brass chain. We’re still working on this design, but we like where it’s heading!

 

and we saved the best, for last….

An r.d.l.m. exclusive. Authentic Thai Buddhist amulet pendant, VNS2695 · Natural Bronze Infinity Link, and VNMS100 · Natural Bronze Small Majapahit Spacer beads.

 

All in all, amazing pieces to work with that were easily incorporated into r.d.l.m. designs which will soon be available in the new online store, coming 10/1!
