This month, we've called on our sales staff to tell us what items are on their minds. Read on and discover our Staff Picks for June, including art glass, tall case clocks and opal jewelry.
This month, opal jewelry is a staff favorite. The above opal necklace is a favorite of staff member Misty: "I'm not usually a fan of opals, but these are so full of color! I have never seen another necklace completely made of opals; usually you see just an opal pendant on a chain. It is just breathtaking!"
The beautiful opal and seed pearl ring below is staff member Kathy's pick for the month. "I love this ring," she says. "It's my birthstone and it contains a very beautiful opal, but the tiny seed pearls are what makes it even more special. It is in perfect condition - and very well priced!"
Sales staff member Vida has chosen a beautiful marquise diamond ring this month. "I love these types of rings! I love this one the most because it fits me," she says.
"I love art glass," says longtime salesperson Michael. "The designs have always appealed to me, old or new." This beautiful piece of art glass from Lalique features a unique fish pattern.
This month, salesperson and art gallery manager Judith has chosen two pieces of art, each with their own unique character and story. Her first pick is Vicki Catapano's Sacred Circle, a colorful and vibrant depiction of a Native American dance. "It is outstanding in it's detail and feeling," Judith says about this painting. "Vicki is so very accomplished in capturing motion and action and suspending it in time."
A second piece Judith has chosen is Nipomo Wild Mustard by Dirk Foslien. "I like the feeling of the sky and clouds as they pass over the hills, and the beauty and freedom of the blooming mustard," Judith muses about this work of art.
This 1840s tall case clock is a favorite this month. Misty says: "I love the look of this clock. The sleek astronomical dial is a show stopper, set off perfectly against the rich flame mahogany case. The best part is that it runs for a full month! No need to wind every week, like most clocks."
