What Happens in Vegas
Hello blog-readers! We hope you are enjoying this last week of August, the countdown is on to Labor Day & we all know what that means....no more white pants! oh and the beginning of the end....of summer. Though this is sad in itself it means September which around these parts is a super busy month! This September we are doing something a little new & different, WMJ is off to Vegas! This coming weekend Wendy & the sales team will be winging their way to the city of gambling for the Project Trade Show taking place at The Sands Expo center. Very exciting for us to be participating in a new show, we hope to find some fabulous new retailers for this part of the country so WMJ will be available in more places for YOU! If you are in Las Vegas at this time do drop by to visit our booth (#3008) to visit Wendy, Erin, Kelly & Nadine as they show our most recent collection for Fall/Winter, we wish you luck ladies & hope that the show is a success, try to stay away from the tables if you can.....
Big fish, little fish! here are some wonderful fish pendants we currently have available. These fish are handmade in Peru by highly skilled artisans, the detail is just great, each fish 'moves' with flexible scales & comes in these two sizes, whether you prefer a big catch or a small one! Cerena above is wearing her larger fish (in gold vermeil) & Amy is wearing her smaller version -also in gold vermeil. These fish are available from our boutique (firstname.lastname@example.org) or if you are a web customer you can also special order by emailing us at email@example.com. We have a few different versions depending on your personal style, they can be gold or silver, on a chunky chain or thinner style, with stones or without! If you drop by our boutique you can check out the fish in person, Kelly or Brookes will be able to help you decide & if necessary have a custom fish made up for you, please note the pricepoints for this piece are dependent on the style chosen.
Who doesn't love a pearl? Julia Child sure did! if you haven't seen Julie & Julia yet you must, made us want to wear a pearl choker while cooking Beef Bourgogne & peeking out the window at a Parisian skyline....but back to reality. We have these fabulous new pearl pieces available for you, as usual if you are a New Yorker do drop by the boutique to view but make sure to call first on 212 260 5298 to check the pieces have not been snapped up! The necklace above is a fabulous handmade bib, inspired by Indian style jewelry & featuring white freshwater pearls. This necklace is $198, if you are a web customer you can also order this piece by tapping your details to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The bracelet above is a gorgeous tangled layer of chain, gold vermeil beads & freshwater pearls, this piece is $175, same as above, drop by our boutique to give it a try or email us at the web.....our boutique also carries a bunch of fabulous pearl earrings from this new collection which would complement these pieces above just perfectly, we think Julia would approve.
This week we leave you with an image of a very iconic rock! Where is this rock? Australia of course! Important because this week our Sales Manager, Nadine King, leaves us to return to
her Aussie homeland. We wish her all the best among the koalas & gumtrees, enjoy all that nature for us! (though maybe without the poisonous spiders & enormous sharks). How interesting this is because many years before Meryl Streep played Julia Child she played an infamous Australian by the name of Lindy Chamberlain...."A dingo ate my baby......". It's all connected!
Enjoy the rest of your week & stay in touch, thanks to all of our new (& older!) customers who shopped with us through August (please note that great Lucky deal closes this coming Monday).
The WMJ team in NYC.
