First jewelry news of 2016!

How on earth is it February already? Welcome to our first quarterly jewelry blog of 2016, albeit a few days late. Spring will be springing in no time!

Possibly the most exciting thing we have to share so far this year, is that we are now a featured jeweler in Offbeat Bride! We decided to try out doing some advertising this year to bring in more wedding and engagement ring projects, and here we are, in their Vendor Spotlight!

Lots more exciting new stuff to show off this month as we prepare for our first show of the season, Pantheacon. This is a new opportunity for Arabesque, although I’ve exhibited there over the years with my art and Tarot works. For those of you that have not heard of Pantheacon, it is an annual convention for the magically inclined and spiritually eclectic held over Presidents’ Day weekend in San Jose. It’s a brand new audience for us with our jewelry work, so we’ve been working on several special new lines.

These necklaces are just stunning!

Inspired by the art of Alphonse Mucha and our mutual love of medieval and Renaissance design, we hope these beauties will become a signature line for Arabesque.

Speaking of the Renaissance, we also have another fun event coming up May 14-15, Carnevale Fantastico! This is a brand new (second year, actually) Italian Renaissance Faire, produced by our friends at Avalon Themed Events. (You might even recognize the logo art for this show below–not bad, if I do say so myself!) This may be the only event we do in our own backyard this year, held at beautiful Blue Rock Springs park in east Vallejo. You can look forward to seeing our new Tarot and Goddess lines at this show, along with a host of other talented artisans, performers and friends. This event is not to be missed!

We’re still working on the rest of our show schedule for the year, but you can expect to see us at several different Bay Area Art & Wine Festivals, as well as some other fun events. Bookmark our Events page; our full show schedule should be posted there over the next few weeks and months. (Our next blog should be coming the first week of May.)

Last but not least, we have a COUPON to start this year out for you: 20% off all garnet jewelry! Instead of focusing on someone special in your life, why not give yourself a piece of jewelry featuring this beautiful and sensual stone? It is a stone of protection, grounding, confidence, manifestation, and success…perfect for the new year and gifting yourself a gesture of loving self-care.
