Crosses for Easter

April 7, 2017

With Easter approaching, you may be struggling to find a unique gift. Our Celtic Crosses are rich with history that stretches back over a thousand years.

The Celtic Cross Pendant is inspired by the stone Celtic crosses found in many parts of Wales, dating from the early days of Christianity in Britain.

Muiredach’s Cross Pendant

Muiredach’s Cross of Monasterboice is an outstanding example of later period Celtic crosses, with full ornamentation on both front and back and on the sides. This small cross is a finely detailed reproduction, including edge ornamentation.

Trinity Cross Necklet

Our Trinity Cross Necklet has triskeles incised in each arm, symbolizing the Trinity in an ancient Celtic style.

US Will Adopt Bison as National Mammal

May 6, 2016

Buffalo Pin by Cavin Richie



The bison could soon be the national mammal of the United States. The bill, passed by the House and Senate, now awaits the signature of the President.

Supporters of the bill say it will afford overdue recognition to a species that has been of such importance to the culture and history of the US.

“No other indigenous species tells America’s story better than this noble creature,” said Rep. William Lacy Clay. “The American bison is an enduring symbol of strength, Native American culture and the boundless western wildness.”

Tens of millions of bison, also known as buffalo, once ranged across North America. A century later, only a thousand remained. Concerned citizens, including President Teddy Roosevelt, formed the American Bison Society to help relocate 15 bison from the Bronx Zoo to a refuge in Oklahoma. There the bison could begin to repopulate the West. The current number is about 30,000, with the largest population in Yellowstone National Park. Bison are considered the first major conservation success story on Earth.

“We would like all of our children to be able to see a herd of several thousand bison roaming freely across some of these areas. That is really the vision of what the American West was and could be,” said Cristian Samper, president of the New York-based Wildlife Conservation Society.

Ideas for Valentine’s Day

January 29, 2016

With Valentine’s Day just two weeks away, you might be in a bind on getting that perfect gift.

David Morgan’s Everlasting Love earrings and necklace are a reasonably-priced idea. Among the Celts, the triskele is used to represent the tripartite nature of life and people. In these earrings two triskeles are linked together to form the circle of eternity, denoting two people, in body, mind and spirit, joined together in everlasting love. The earrings are made of sterling silver.

Haida Watchmen

December 24, 2015

A Haida custom is to place watchmen on the top of totem poles. These iconic figures can be seen throughout the Haida lands and represent sentinels who keep guard over the Haida people.

Since the 1980s, however, Haida Watchmen are real people who keep a lookout over old Haida villages and protect them from vandalism.

Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve’s cultural resource manager Barb Wilson says the Skidegate Band Council started the Watchmen program in the early 1980s because they wanted more people out on the land.

People had always been out on their territory, but around this time a lot of “pot hunting” was going on—people digging for artifacts and taking them without permission, she says. Some even cut pieces off monumental poles that had fallen. In fact, the Haida Gwaii Museum has a pole fragment on display that was recovered from a tourist’s yacht after a Haida noticed them at the dock in Prince Rupert.

The full story can be read here. The watchmen are beautiful works of art. We’re happy to have them as one of our chess pieces and as a keychain.

New Jewelry from Silver Seasons

October 1, 2015

We are pleased to offer jewelry from the Silver Seasons collection, designed by Michael Michaud. Each piece is hand crafted in New York.

Michael Michaud resides in Fairfield, Connecticut. Michael’s love of nature and his exceptional knowledge of jewelry making inspired him to launch the Silver Seasons Collection in 1992. Years of experience has given him the ability to capture the finest details of nature and to craft them with metal. He has perfected the technique of creating models from natural botanical elements and, after the models are made, manipulating these “copies of nature” into his jewelry. Using primarily bronze and natural stones, the Silver Seasons jewelry we offer is renowned for its craftsmanship and beauty.

Heathergems: a Christmas Treasure

November 16, 2012

Our latest jewelry comes from the hills of Scotland, where the purple blooms of heather decorate the landscape. Heathergems are made from this well-loved plant, which is dyed and blocked into unique color patterns.

Each Heathergem is handcrafted in Pitlochry, Scotland. The heather used is too old to provide any nutrition for wildlife and is pulled in a manner which promotes the growth of new plants.

The stems are dried, shotblasted to remove the bark and dyed various colors using natural dyes. Stems of different colors are then mixed together and compressed into a block. Eighty tons of pressure is required to press the block of stems together.

The block is then cut into slices and individual pieces are cut, shaped and filed by skilled craftworkers before being lacquered to give the final finish. The Heathergem jewelry we offer are set into sterling silver fittings. Each piece comes gift boxed, with a card explaining the process used to create Heathergems.

This is a wonderfully unique Christmas gift.
