Leaf Me Alone!

I was at the shop looking at things to photograph for these posts, when Eric suggested that we do “50 Shades of Grey” post.

After we stopped laughing and started looking, we found a number of grey objects. But what really caught my eye was the great leaf dishes that are now in stock.

The artist has taken real leaves and made casts of them. You could use them for serving dishes, a place to put your jewelry,

a candy dish, a condiment dish, a salad bowl or anything you can imagine!

As always, if you’re interested in anything you see here, please contact Eric at the shop!

Oh, Geode!

We have the most fascinating necklaces in the shop right now. They’re so unique that we had to have them! They’re made of tiny geodes. I am sure you remember geodes from your college geology classes. They look like nothing from the outside, but when you break them open, they are filled with crystals!image

Our necklaces are rows of tiny geodes, with just a little of their sparkle showing through.

As you see, the necklace just looks like several strands of interesting beads, but when you get closer, you see the magic!You can see the rifts and crevasses in each stone that shows off its secret interior. Spaced between some of the geode stones are little crystal beads and there is one larger accent stone.

This necklace comes in stone grey and a marble white.

Of course, these amazing necklaces are unique to Halcyon House and each one is slightly different due to the nature of the stones used to create each piece.

As always, if you’re interested in what you see, please contact Eric at the shop!

Black & White

Is there anything more classic than black and white? From old photographs to a Chanel suit, black and white stands the test of time.




Each is elegant and classic in its own way.

Boxing Day

Oh, right. That was a few weeks ago. But boxes are so useful all year round. There’s always something a bit exciting about opening a box, isn’t there? You never know if you’ll find a treasure or just a pack of old cigarettes.

At Halcyon House, we love boxes, too. We have some gorgeous ones in stock right now, just the perfect place for stashing your jewelry, some love letters or just the TV remotes!

This bone box has the most amazing detailing. IMG_3770It’s highly decorated and the plain black and white sets off the elaborate design.IMG_3769

Another black and white box – in bone and wood.

This box is inlaid with mother-of-pearl detailing.

This box, made of horn, has a quilt-effect lid.

Patterns & Textures

I love finding the pattern and textures in pieces and then looking at their geometry. It’s easy to spot patterns in almost everything, and while I was at the shop over the weekend, I looked around for interesting patterns and textures.
