Limited Edition Charleston Rice Beads & Happenings

A new Charleston Rice Bead Necklace in a 5′ length is now available online.  This is a limited edition piece for summer and we will be contributing $10 from the sale of every necklace online to The Mother Emanuel Hope Fund.  They are available here.

Also, if you are looking for things to do in Charleston this week, consider visiting The George Gallery tonight night for Imagining Eliza, a group show featuring ten artists.

Per my friend MK who helped organize the fundraiser:

Eliza  Pinkney was queen bee of Charleston back in the late 1700s and is responsible for introducing indigo farming to South Carolina. She was the first woman inducted into the South Carolina Women’s Business Hall of Fame and was generally just a total bad-ass. Her over 200 year old sack-back gown, thought to have been worn to the court of King George II, was given to the Charleston Museum in the 1940s and is in desperate need of restoration. Though we have her dress, no portraits of Eliza survived the Revolutionary War—we have no clue what she looked like! With this in mind, we’ve asked ten all-star artists from across the South and beyond to paint their own versions of an Eliza Pinckney portrait, inspired by her history and legacy. Proceeds from the sale of these works will go towards Eliza’s dress’s restoration. 

Then, this Wednesday I am SO excited that my good friend Sally Benedict whose beautiful ladies hang in my shop in Charleston is launching her new stationary line in collaboration with my fav Charleston paper shop, also on Cannon Street, Mac & Murphy you do not want to miss this:

If you are local, our Summer White Charleston Rice Beads are also available at Candy Shop Vintage at 9 Cannon Street – you can pick to wear to either of these fun evening events!
