Belts and goin' old school!
written by Heidi Riedel, September 11, 2010
I absolutely love wearing belts, I have a favorite peacock feather belt that always makes my simple dresses gorgeous. Also when im wearing a white tank and tuck it in to my light denim jeans its just so perfect to add a belt and a cute cardigan :) Loveee bracelets and necklaces but its never both at the same time; either one or the other. I definitely would love this bracelet. One it's beautiful, and two, it reminds me of my favorite time of the year, fall. :)

I'm obsessed with hand crafted jewelry. I especially love pieces that include vintage flea market finds in the mix. It is wonderful when a unique piece of jewelry can start a conversation with another kindred spirt. The bracelet is a job well done. A perfect color combo to transition into to fall with. Who ever wins this beauty will be lucky indeed!

Sweaters - all year round.
written by Elise Heidy, September 10, 2010
I've found that I love sweaters. In winter, in spring, even in summer! I love that a sweater dresses an outfit up, or is a practical tool too to keep you warm. This bracelet would go very well with a sweater.

I'm pretty much obssessed with anything vintage/thrifted. I love how every piece has a past life and story, plus you don't look like everyone else. It's something truly unique!!!
Obsessed with wearable art
written by Whitney Wilde, September 08, 2010
Why is it that "women of a certain age" here in Santa Cruz look funky chic and unique?

There is no other place on Earth I could get away with looking like a walking art piece, yet here in Santa Cruz, I am just one of many. For me, it expresses a mood or who I am that day, whether it is a custom, handmade necklace of a heart with wings or my sweater embroidered with sea life. Maybe it is just the gypsy layering of garments. All combine to make me a walking art gallery of Santa Cruz.

Giving and Giving, Then Giving Some More

2014 is almost over. Wednesday, Dec. 17, the Jewish Festival of Light, Hanukkah, begins. We are in our last week of Sag and last two weeks of December. Sunday, Dec. 21 is winter Solstice, as the sun enters Capricorn (3:30 p.m. for the west coast). Soon after, the Capricorn new moon occurs (5:36 p.m. for the west coast)—the last new moon of 2014. Sunday morning Uranus in Aries (revolution, revelation) is stationary direct (retro since July 22). Uranus/Aries create things new and needed to anchor the new culture and civilization (Aquarius). We will see revolutionary change in 2015. Capricorn new moon, building-the-personality seed thought, is, “Let ambition rule and let the door to initiation and freedom stand wide (open).” Capricorn is a gate—where matter returns to spirit. But the gate is unseen until the Ajna Center (third eye), Diamond Light of Direction, opens. Winter solstice is the longest day of darkness of the year. The sun’s rays resting at the Tropic of Capricorn (southern hemisphere) symbolize the Christ (soul’s) light piercing the heart of the Earth, remaining there for three days, till Holy Night (midnight Thursday morning). Then the sun’s light begins to rise. It is the birth of the new light (holy child) for the world. A deep calm and stillness pervades the world.The entire planet is revivified, re-spiritualized. All hearts beating reflect this Light. And so throughout the Earth there’s a radiant “impress” (impressions, pictures) given to humanity of the World Mother and her Child. The star Sirius (love/direction) and the constellation Virgo the mother shines above. For gift giving, give to those in need. Give and give and then give some more. This creates the new template of giving and sharing for the new world.
