It’s Time to Celebrate Dads & Grads!

Question for you – what do a pair of bright yellow and black bumble bee cufflinks, a pirate key chain and a hand blown glass paperweight have in common? Here at Max’s, we think they all make fabulous gifts for your dad and grad! Yep, it’s a double-whammy in terms of gift giving this month and we’ve got you covered. Allergic to the bumble bees? How about the red guitar or the rabbit or the skull with a moving jaw? We love all of these fabulous and fun cuff links from British design house Deakin & Francis.

And for the women who are graduating? Well, there are lots of choices for them too including fabulous wrap bracelets, hoops and studs, layering necklaces – you know, that type of jewelry that you love to wear every day. Of course, we think that a little something sweet works too, so we’re all stocked up on a variety of chocolates, including my current favorites – chocolate with quinoa and chocolate made with coconut milk. So for the dads and grads in your world, come on in and let us help you find that perfect something-something!


Getting Stoned (Again) With Suzy Landa!

Trunk Show: Thursday, June 18 – Saturday, June 20

Suzy Landa is a stone junkie.  Those aren’t my words, those are hers.  She says that she falls in love with a stone first, and then creates a design that best shows it off.  Makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?  She also says that she doesn’t follow trends when creating her jewelry which I LOVE about her.  She’s got a strong enough sense of who she is and confidence in her designs that she doesn’t feel the need to be trendy.  That’s good news for all of us who like to wear her jewelry, because it means that we won’t see ourselves coming and going all over town.  If your attendance at prior trunk shows is any indication, Suzy is one of your favorite designers. We love it when Suzy is in the store with her entire collection because the vibrancy of the gemstones she uses in her jewelry just lights things up — and she’s a lot of fun! Rather than me continuing on about all that I think is so right about Suzy’s approach to design and the corresponding results, why not listen to her talk about her approach and how she does what she does.
