A Brand of Honor

Posted by Schiffman's at 5:00:00 AM in Tissot (39)

A Tissot watch is comparably described as one of the brilliant watches that reflect the true nature of man.  That nature of man is a life seeking actuation meant to satisfy his ego and security. The continuous search for that distinct signature of prestige, the one it could afford to flaunt just for the feel of security. Tissot is definitely a symbol status for the elite. Though, figuratively speaking in its monetary value, its too distracting to actually elevate the fact that value indeed equates luxury. Luxury can be expressed in variant modes found to be worthy and reliable to comprehend. It's that typical jargon of elegance that value can be appreciated at least on the level of a Tissot watch creation!
Comfort and style are the added values of a watch known as the brand of honor! Stop being a beholder of prestige, wear one today! Wear a Tissot watch!

The Brighton Pavilion Bird Lamps is a pair of ingenuity, intricately sculpted birds in full color that act as the stem and base. Likewise, the Duke of Gloucester Two-Handed Lamp fits any mansion or castle interior art, at that, with its unblemished ivory white body accented by a fruity impression.

Featured artist: Kjell Engman

Posted by Schiffman's at 4:00:00 AM in Kosta Boda (30)

Kosta Boda artists are encouraged to create their own line of masterpieces outside the regular product line. Kjell Engman, one of Kosta Boda’s top artists, has a wide array of these art glass pieces that showcase the height of his glassmaking mastery. His Amazonas is a contrasting mood, illustrating the extent of his ability to use glass to his purpose. Where an Amazona is coarse, golden, confident and project a solid rock of work, yet another piece evokes a translucent, almost delicate and vulnerable art glass piece. Both Amazonas flow with Engman’s masterful strokes as he glides his hands to curve the slender figures to form. The artist adds depths to the bodies by manipulating the inner glow with color. The result is a mesmerizing surface that seems to subtly change inch by inch.

Reflecting art

Posted by Schiffman's at 4:00:40 AM in Grainger McKoy (37)

Grainger McKoy is a master of sculpture of reflection, birds in action with their mirror images in imagined water. Black Skimmer in 1983, a piece made from basswood, walnut, metal and oil paint, was Grainger McKoy’s first of these “reflective” works. The bird and its mirror image are subtly joined at the beak’s tip, creating an illusion of reflection that is separate from its subject. Grainger McKoy adds details of subtle actions to add to the realism, such as the flipping of feathers at the wingtips and its distorted mirror image caused by abstract flowing water. The colors are rendered in varying shades, mindful of the shadows thrown by the bird’s action. The Black Skimmer is a three-dimensional perfection of reflective art that is now a trademark of Grainger McKoy.
Grainger McKoy is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.

From bland to charming

Posted by Schiffman's at 4:00:00 AM in Orange Howell (32)

The air-conditioning unit is rustic, aging and unsightly for a dining place. It is one of those reminders of a ghetto building, a throwback to an age before centralized indoor climate-controlled conditioning systems. But the owner has a spark of genius how to create interest on this protruding unit: he hanged an Orange Howell creation. It is a hexagon bundle of little hexagon stars in vermeil silver and precious metal and tied up to a textile ribbon. Suddenly, the whole air-conditioning unit against an old window becomes charming. An art piece that evokes a sincere, straightforward story. The orange ribbon provides a neat accent in that corner of rustiness. The vermeil piece creates a philosophical social openness, as the precious metal freely mingles with the metal commoners. Fancy how an Orange Howell transforms even a bland corner.
Orange Howell  is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.

A Watch from Circadia

Posted by Schiffman's at 5:00:15 AM in Philip Stein (33)

The science of sleep is one of the complex, bizarre yet remarkable and beneficial, "routinary" of man's daily activity. Without sleep man will die or if one can survive, will surely end as a mental mess! Our sleeping pattern is attuned with our respective circadian rhythm. Our sleep patterns vary dependent on variant time zones. Sleep problems usually end up to Insomnia, a condition described as inability to sleep.  
Philip Stein designed a watch by its patented Natural Frequency Technology believed to correct sleeping problems. A lot of client's review voiced impressive admiration on the watch's ability to correct one's sleeping pattern towards a healthy rest. Some are at first skeptical but the testimonial reviews are overwhelming and convincing. Aside from its healthy benefits, the watch itself is a work of excellent craftsmanship. Its classy design invokes an aura of elegance and style, pleasing and visually interesting.
Truly, a Philip Stein watch is indeed a gift from Circadia! Philip Stein Watches are available at Schiffman's in Winston-Salem.

Tattooed in Your Heart

Posted by Schiffman's at 5:00:00 AM in Metalsmiths Sterling (34)

Love poems and letters are the artistic forms of our old ways of love expression. Time investment, wide reading and pure emotions are the cornerstones of making the love poem or letter you ever wanted. You don’t have to be an Edgar Allan Poe-romantic or a Shakespeare-genius to make the perfect literary piece you want to achieve. But sure enough, not all of us are given the gift of words to enrich our love poems or letters. So what do we do? Well, just leave the paper writing thing of 3 to 4 stanza piece and let it be tattooed in four words. Metalsmiths Sterling is a romantic debonair in its Ink Collection. An edgy jewelry collection inspired by some of the world’s most brilliant tattoos. One of these is a great pendant from the Ink Collection—a wrapped heart pendant with wrap stating 'true love never dies' in a 'Street Finish'. The pendant measures 23.6mm in height. The pendant is suspended from a 20-inch rolo chain. More romantic than poems and more expressing than letters, this piece is the ultimate love expression you ever thought.

Sharp investment

Posted by Schiffman's at 4:00:00 AM in Couzon (32)

Few luxury things in life are worth spending more money. Cutlery is one of them. Knives, especially. You can always skimp and get a cheaper knife, but how far can it give you that fine slice that you demand from a nicely seared steak?  In such case, invest in knives that go a long way. A Couzon cutlery, in fact, is worth the investment. The stainless steel master has been producing high-end cutlery of finely shaped spoons, forks and knives. State-of-the-art precision engineering means the Couzon knife serration exhibits a high-cutting performance. It cuts through meat in thin margins; it is said that a Couzon knife will last longer than its owner (with all that meat eating, anyway). Similarly, the fork prongs are also shaped, sharpened and hardened to do its job forever.  The spoon is slender and weighted right for a nice grip. A Couzon is always worth the investment in strength, accuracy and aesthetics.
Couzon is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.

Give Her a Bouquet

Posted by Schiffman's at 5:00:00 AM in Mémoire (37)

Courting the lady you like has never been easy. From the traditional courtship we know where we have to wear our best shirt with matching jeans and branded shoes and take her out to dinner, to visiting her parents for lunch bringing a favorite dessert to make a pleasant impression. Today’s courtship is a lot more different. Now, you can have her say “YES” over the internet through Skype or Viber; all you have to do is send her some nice quotes sourced from the internet and put a cute emoticon as a finale. But of course, victory is sweeter if it is obtained with a lot of effort and pure romance. Courtship can be more romantic, a better way is to just look her in the eyes, take her hand and give her a Bouquet. Memoire 1.0ct Bouquet Diamond Halo Stud Earrings from Memoire is a 1 Carat Round Diamond Bouquet Stud Earrings. These stud earrings are made of 18 karat white gold and feature a round-cut center diamond with a halo of smaller round-cut diamonds in a shared prong setting with a total diamond weight of 1 carat. No bouquet of roses, lilies, daisies or tulips is better than the Memoire Bouquet. Have her say “Yes” with Memoire.
Give her a Memoire piece today. Visit us at Schiffman’s in Downtown Greensboro. Schiffman’s is an authorized dealer for Memoire.

Oh, Corsica!

Posted by Schiffman's at 4:00:00 AM in Casafina (31)

I can smell the sweet salty Mediterranean deep blue sea. The green Corsican hills flow behind me dotted by ceramic-tiled medieval villages. The cotton white clouds hover above as I enjoy a morning cup and hearty breakfast. I take my time knowing that the sun will be up the whole day and the white sand beach can wait for a while.  Looking out the window, I imagine waving to a school of yachts passing by my personal Corsica island; instead, the crowded traffic Chicago jam greets me back. Pity. The French Mediterranean bug always strikes me every morning when I use the Casafina Corsica Collection, fine ceramic ware that truly evokes the island’s flavor: rustic green, solid, "kissable" rims and the yellow earth tones, I will always dream of sipping freshly brewed coffee perched high in the Corsican cliff. I’m saving up to realize this dream. For now, I have the Casafina Corsica, the next best thing I guess to the real Corsica.

Inspiration from the past

Posted by Schiffman's at 4:00:00 AM in Beatriz Ball Collection (31)

Antiquity has a lot to offer when you think of a theme for your dining display. It has charm, nostalgia and character. It’s the ambiance that the Beatriz Ball Collection Antik collection captures with its line of bowls, platters, trays and servers based on the world of antiquity and using metal as the medium. The rustic flavor is evident in the deliberate uneven surface and non-symmetrical lines that flow across the rims and bases of the Beatriz Ball Collection Antik items. The fine metal works add to the aged appeal of this collection; they blend in style with other ornaments such as crystals, textiles and ceramics. In many ways, the Beatriz Ball Collection Antik is order in disorder, which impersonates early craftsmanship and rubs it on with an art deco touch. You can feel the solid hands of the artist molding these fine metal works.

Only Stars Lose Luster

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:00:50 AM in Charles Krypell (45)

Every time we look up the night sky and see millions and even billions of stars twinkling and taking pride with their own light, we can imagine endless possibilities that lie between the earth and the sky considering the boundless distance stretching out in between and the potentials that happen in every inch of that distance. Their light seems eternal but like anything else in the world, they come to an end. But unlike the stars, a Charles Krypell made piece cannot be outshone even by the sunshine in the morning and like work of art, the longer you have it, the more valuable it becomes. Just like the Charles Krypell 18k White and Green Gold Earrings crafted from 18kt white and green gold with brilliant white diamonds (0.28cts.) all of which are VS in quality and G in color, a dazzling piece that exudes light more than anything; for stars will lose luster but never a Charles Krypell.

A Window to Your Past

Posted by Schiffman's at 4:15:55 AM in The 925 (32)

Many customers looking for The 925 Inc. sterling silver picture frame have their favorite item. Ours is the Windsor frame, a masterpiece of sterling silver etched with intricate climbing vine of flowers around the frame. It evokes an aged garden, frozen in time as photos would in essence. The wood etches do appear like wood if not for their silver texture. The Roman vase adds melancholy to the whole theme. The frame itself is a window to a past, as if you are peaking at a secret garden. The whole idea of a picture frame is to capture a memory, and The 925 Windsor piece does the job well. Nonetheless, while the picture frame is impressive in itself, the universal silver palette gives it a singular tone that won’t overwhelm the picture itself. 
The 925 is available at Schiffman's in Winston-Salem.

Diamonds in the rough

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:00:00 AM in Annieglass (34)

Not all fine art glass dinner set is made from perfectly symmetrical forms. Some of the finest glass items are shaped completely opposite to create a rough look. The Annieglass B.C. Dinnerware, in fact, reflects a stone-age theme, giving its plates and bowls a ragged edge to depict an uneven set of artist’s hands. Yet this intentional lack of symmetry gives the dinnerware its character and unique confidence reminiscent of an Annieglass handcrafted glass. Each item appears unique with its own pattern of uneven surface. The plates can serve appetizers in an informal setting, an outdoor gathering perhaps on an easy afternoon. The bowls are perfect for side dishes or finger foods. The Annieglass B.C. Dinnerware also includes buffet plates and dessert plates, all of which are guaranteed against chips and breaks.

The Bro Diamonds

But there are quite a bit of diamonds which you can label as extraordinary. They are the rarest, most beautiful diamonds you can dig from the earth. Luckily, Suna Bros. dug them out from the remote region of Australia, more specifically from the Argyle Diamond Mine, the very source of Suna Bros.’ diamonds.

If you think black and white photography is a thing of the past, you are missing a technique to add melancholy and nostalgia to your photo displays. Black and white reduces photographs in its barest elements without the distraction of clashing colors; thus, they are perfect to add drama to the memories captured by your camera. Here’s a technique: pick the best photographs of your life’s milestones—wedding, first baby, graduation, etc.—and turn them into black and white using any photography software. Then place them in a Beatriz Ball sterling picture frame. The result is a stunning collection of frames that tell a dramatic story. The Beatriz Ball elegant silver gleam highlights the black and white tones of the photos, as these, in turn, highlight the actions in the photos: a child’s smile, your partner’s face or the family’s laughter, among others.

Dynamic, fun and universal! That is the mark of a genuine sterling silver-made jewelry from Slane. The Slane sisters are not for minimalism, they are for elegance, style and more. More as in a lot! Usually, we buy charm bracelets to create our own distinct look, but sometimes the more we try to separate our look from the crowd, the more we tend to look odd and unfashionable.

The Slane sisters have solved this dilemma with one circle of charms—the Slane Multiple Charm and Gemstone Bracelet in Sterling Silver. This bracelet is from SLANE's Charm Collection and features a series of sterling silver chain links alternating with fixed charms and colored gemstones.

Complex vs. simple

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:00:15 AM in Casafina (31)

The beauty about Casafina ceramics is the flexibility it affords to the collector. Whether you opt for complex, intricate patterns or you prefer the simplicity of art, Casafina has both. The Fiorentino collection reveals a swirling mix of bold green and blue in deep tones, with each color further rendered across a wide gradient. The Galo line also has the fluidity feel to it, but the strokes are thinner and more subtle; yet the colors explode in stark hues of oranges, reds and blues amidst the blacks and green undertones. On the other end, Casafina expresses an elegant simplicity in its Marina dinnerware. The blue fish etched in linear strokes cannot be any more basic, but the lines still exude class. The Jacquard line also exhibits grace in simplicity; the set is awash in white with subtle markings of floral designs.
Casafina is available at Schiffman's in Winston-Salem.

Aladdin Made the Perfect Choice

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:00:40 AM in Raymond Weil (38)

Flying carpets, magic lamps and genie wishes are really not necessary to catch your man’s attention and make him fall in love with you. Aladdin fell in love with the princess just what and who she was in the fairytale. Her natural beauty, good and friendly nature and sunny optimism were the things that touched Aladdin’s heart in the story, not love potions, not even magic and genie wishes. And as much as Aladdin knew her princess, Raymond Weil also knows her own Jasmine. Powered by quartz and mechanical movements, the Jasmine is in PVD rose gold and is extremely resistant to wear and will probably last for years. Raymond Weil has equipped the timepiece with 29 diamonds neatly set on its round bezel, as well as a blue sapphire cabochon that adores its notched setting crown. With its exquisite features, every man will definitely turn his head as you take him into a whole new world. Beyond doubt, the Jasmine is the perfect choice not just for Aladdin but for everyone.

Pity the bird

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:00:00 AM in Grainger McKoy (37)

A Grainger McKoy is always a warm soup in a winter’s night for the soul. Not only are the details impressive, but the ability of the artist to give his work life, the “spirit” as Leonardo da Vinci calls it, is truly a master stroke of genius. Is it the detailed sculpture or the rich colors? The Single Mourning Dove, done in 1982, carries such a deep sorrow of a bird that has lost its flight and now lays on the ground helpless and vulnerable. Its eyes look at you for mercy, as yours are drawn to the blue hues of its feathers as if they glow within. The pinkish feet create an accent to the color, as they add to the drama of a bird in danger. You almost feel pity for the bird until you remember it is done in rich basswood, metal and oil paint.

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:25 AM in Simon Pearce (32)

Accents can make or break your interior design, so thread this line with extra care. The trick is in the subtleness, what to execute and what to throw out of the design palette. Simon Pearce offers a whole array of wooden home accents that you can work on. The items are rendered in neutral art, that is, you can apply them almost in any interior theme. The wood server ware can go with silver, ceramics or glass. They add warmth and a solid feel, even creating a natural scent as it ages. The Live Edge Maple Pate Board has a natural cut to it that lends a taste of the outdoors into your home.  The Walnut and Cherry Serving Set creates their own natural appeal and character. Notably, the Olivewood Duo Server Bowl adds a serene ambiance reminiscent of a Zen garden.
Simon Pearce is available at Schiffman's in Downtown Greensboro.

Shabby chic

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:00 AM in Salisbury (32)

Want a new look out of a dreary, dark interior? Try shabby chic. It’s an avant-garde art in England that started in the nineties and carried on to this day by people with a taste for an outdoorsy feel. The soft pink flowers in bloom, blue pastels of a Mediterranean sea, the cottony white of clouds in a sunny morning; these are the aspirations of English interior designers caught in their grey, rainy country. You can actually create the shabby chic theme with some of the Salisbury porcelain items. The Bridal Spray tea cup set is awash in pink roses and so does the Almond tea cup. The Chelsea plate has yellow tones to add accents to the general whiteness of shabby chic. Likewise, the American Dogwood, laced with minty green leaves, create depth to your entire shabby chic theme. Feel free to play around the Salisbury items as you paint your house in shabby chic.
Salisbury is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.

Irish grit and grace

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:20:00 AM in Waterford Crystal (39)

Waterford Crystal is known for creating one of the most memorable commemorative pieces in glass art and the JFK50 is perhaps one the more popular of these Waterford Crystal pieces.  The glass-making company created a replica to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s visit to Ireland, the so-called “homecoming.” As gratitude for the visit, the Irish ambassador then presented the president with an assortment of shamrocks, an Irish symbol, in a Waterford Crystal Oval Bowl. The bowl, now known as the Kennedy Bowl in the White House, has the detailed trademark touch of Waterford artisans. The bowl mimics a king’s crown and is set in a solid base. It is elegant and sturdy as it is confident, which reflects the general sentiment among Irish back then when they look at the Irish-descendant U.S. president as a symbol of Irish grit and grace.
Waterford Crystal is available at Schiffman's in Friendly Center.

The inspiration for the soft texture of the Palu collection's battered surfaces comes from the moon's beautifully mottled facade. Just as in the original days of this ancient technique, pieces of the Palu collection are still hand-hammered. Husband and wife teams of artisans partner to create the jewelry, with the wife holding the piece over the fire to soften the material and the husband hammers the metal to create the Palu finish. The intense creative process takes on the nuances of their relationships as their daily emotions come through in their work.

Ubiquitous turns creative

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:30 AM in Orange Howell (32)

Fancy the macaroni-inspired bracelets by Orange Howell. The twisting silver vermeil and precious metal strung around a leathery strap creates an ironic twist, the hard metal versus the soft leather; the serious silver vermeil played around the casual strap, or the ridged, rugged surface of the silver contrasting the smooth, even surface of the leather. The creative genius of Orange Howell is clearly in its O.H. Macaroni-Penne and Rigatoni piece. It is a fashion statement expressed in confidence. A ubiquitous object, the leather, is used as the vessel, while an everyday food item, the macaroni, is tapped for inspiration. Woven into the Orange Howell silver and metal artistry, the result is nowhere near being a regular or ubiquitous. The bracelets are perfect to be worn as a single piece or lumped together.
Orange Howell  is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.
