In 1983, we started as a small Sanibel Island gallery filled with artfully stylish pieces. Though we’ve evolved, our distinct point of view remains: Create carefully curated collections with quality, comfort and versatility as the focal point — essentials punctuated by memorable pieces, pops of color, artful prints and globally-inspired finds. Our collections invite our spirited customer to discover something chic and unique every day.
From the beginning, we’ve believed in the power of originality—that what’s different makes us bold. And we design with this philosophy in mind. For every piece we create, we ask how it will be unique, inspire women to feel good (no matter their age), and help them express their personality and individuality with confidence.
Inspired by the world around us—and the bold women who live in it—our prints, colors, jewelry and details are designed to be original."
