The Beautiful Collection of jewelry from Keren is a MUST HAVE this Holiday Seaon. For Christmas or New Year, add this to your list. The pieces are amazing!

Inspired by her travels around the world, and the ancient cultures of the Mediterranean, Latin America and Europe, Keren's jewelry designs are delightfully intricate. She incorporates Sterling silver and 14 karat gold filled wire, with semi-precious gemstones such as Amber, Garnet, Labradorite and Freshwater pearls to create an elegant mesh of wire and gemstones. Her favorite technique is Macrame knotting with wire, which results in an ethereal and romantic piece of jewelry.

The collections have participated regularly on the runways of major fashion weeks.

These lamps are made of natural crystal salt mined from underground salt mines in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains
The beautiful orange-reddish Himalayan crystal salt is mounted on a wooden base
This crystal salt is hundreds of millions of years old and, as a result, has special properties and high mineral content
Heat from the bulb (in our lamps) or flame (in our candle holders) causes the salt to emit negative ions
These negative ions bond with the pollutants in the air (positive ions) and neutralize them
Also, the newly bonded ions become heavier and fall to the ground removing them from the air circulation
In addition, these negative ions combat electro-smog caused by electronic devices operating in the home
Symptoms from asthma, allergies, and other illnesses can also subside from the effects of these products
Concisely, these products cleanse the air naturally and are extremely beautiful

This fashionable classic bag is made from quality leather and finished with stylish silver hardware. It is the perfect bag to carry you through from day to night.

The Inspiration Behind the Butler Bag

The Butler Bag is a product created by Jen Groover. Jen was inspired by the common problem of digging through a purse in panic wondering whether something was lost or if she was holding up a line of people. Time after time, Jen thought, "There has to be a better way; there has to be a way to design the interior of a purse to be more functional but also fun and fashionable on the outside." As a creative person without boundaries, Jen took a dishwasher tray and placed it in her bag and "voila", everything had a place and was at her fingertips: cell phone, cosmetics, keys, etc. No more digging. She knew instantly that this was the solutions he had been searching for and knew other women would feel the same. Jen has re-invented the purse and elevated the expectations of purses forever.
