Sunday Brunch: Snakes

April 5, 2020
Dear friends,

Happy Sunday! Thanks for joining us for our second edition of Sunday Brunch. This week we're looking at snake jewelry, which has been an obsession of mine ever since I was first introduced to the idea as a kid. I saw the Uraeus on a picture of an Ancient Egyptian headdress and from that day on I just couldn't get enough of them!

But first, a few of the things that have been helping keep our team sane this week.

This week's Stay at Home activities:

Now, grab a beverage and a pastry, put the news aside for a little while, and let's look at some sparkly things together.


This week, our favorite: Snakes

Rare Leach & Miller Sterling Silver & Paste Coiled Snake Arm Cuff $1925

1940s Handwrought White Brass Snake Bracelet with Onyx Eyes $450

Hearing from you all after we sent last week's newsletter was a delight and a wonderful reminder about the best part of this business: you.
We will be offering free U.S. shipping for all purchases during this time as a thank you, and our appreciation of this brilliant and caring community around us is boundless. Thank you. Stay healthy, stay sane, and look forward to another group of jewelry from us next Sunday!
