Mandala Art From Canadian Artist Adam Millward at Chimera Design

When we opened in 2002, we were a combination Art Gallery & Jewelry Store.
At one point we had work from 42 local artists.

Those days are gone - there are a couple galleries on our street now.



However, we still love art. A few weeks ago, Cliff found a Canadian
artist Adam Millward and fell in love with his Mandala art.

These are 10"x 10" Prints
Signed and numbered.
$36 in a simple frame.
$30 with no frame. 



Come on in and take a look - Adam's work is captivating.













New Gemstone & Freshwater Pearl Jewelry At Chimera Design

We have a great relationship with a group of talented artists in Tucson, Arizona. 
We just unpacked almost 100 new pieces of their jewelry - stop in and see them in person.




 The necklace above is a great combination of Jasper.

Below are some very nice, lustrous freshwater pearls.

Looks like Turquoise - but it is really Howlite and freshwater pearls. 

Chalcedony and freshwater pearls.

New Jewelry!








You can take a closer look and get prices on her jewelry 

Scissor Rings and Earrings - Great Gift for Hair Stylists and Seamstresses


These are made by our friends at Cavallo Fine Jewelry in Red Hook, NY.

Let your pinkie finger shine! (or you can wear them on a different finger)


The rings come in 14kt gold - with or without the diamond
and you can get one in sterling silver - with or without a diamond.


Your ears can be part of the fun, too!
They only make the earrings in gold because silver is too soft and the
blades on the scissors bend.


If you want one of these call Cliff 616-897-9480.
