Designer Spotlight: Kind Adornment by Taryn Backus

We here at J. Karma are super excited about a new jewelry line from an awesome new designer local to out area! Kind Adornment by University of the Arts graduate Taryn Backus will surely be your new favorite! Taryn's pieces are all hand made, making each item just the more special. She mixes and matches semi-precious stones with metals in the likes of sterling silver, copper, oxidized copper, gold filled, and brass. Her designs are inspired by original patterns found in different cultures, and in the end she wishes to create "intimate objects one desires to adorn themselves with". 

Like I said before, everyone at J. Karma is thrilled to introduce this amazing new line to all our customers! I couldn't even help myself and already purchased my first (of what I'm sure will be many) piece from Kind Adornment. My new ring, from the second I put it on, has received dozens of complements. It's amazing how it goes with literally, everything in my closet, as well as my new mint green manicure ;) 

So, be the first of all your friends and stop in to J. Karma to buy your first piece of jewelry from what's sure to be your new favorite designer!

What's better than the classic Dr. Scholls™ wood soled sandal with rockin' 80's Barbie™ on the foot bed? Even the box the shoes are packaged in is to die for, they totally remind us of the classic Barbie™ box that lined the shelves of our favorite toy stores. So come in to J.

havaianas IN STOCK NOW!!

Havaiana Facts

1962- 1st pair of havaianas were made. Havaianas were inspired by the Zori, a Japanese sandal made of fabric straps and rice straw soles. This is the reason that the foot bed of havaianas have a textured pattern.

2006- Havaianas Slim were created. The Slim flip flops have slimmer more delicate straps. These are my favorite!

2007- Havaianas land in the USA for good!

Update: Flower Show Window Design Contest.

The Claddagh Ring

Although many of you may have done your St. Patty’s day celebrations during this past weekend let’s not forget that the real day is this Wednesday! In honor of St. Patrick’s Day I thought we could focus on the Claddagh ring. Everyone knows that the Claddagh ring is part of Irish tradition but I thought we could revisit the actual meaning of the ring itself. The elements of the ring are said to correspond to the qualities of love (the heart), friendship (the hands), and loyalty (the crown). The expression associated with these symbols when giving the ring was “With my two hands I give you my heart, and crown it with my loyalty.” The expression, “Let love and friendship reign forever” can be found as another meaning of these symbols. The way the ring is worn on the hand is usually intended to convey the wearer’s romantic availability, or the lack thereof. If the ring is worn on the right hand with the heart facing outward, this means that the wearer is not romantically linked but is looking for love. When the ring is turned inwards it means the wearer is in a relationship or their heart has been “captured”. Lastly, when the Claddagh is worn on the left hand with the heart facing outward this means the wearer is engaged; turned inwards indicates the wearer is married. Enjoy, and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
