GlamTribale jewelry is now available at Philadelphia’s Giant Steps Gallery in Rittenhouse Square. We will be featuring two collections each month, with some designs created exclusively for the gallery.
Freja and Themis are on display through the end of January. We will introduce a completely new assortment in advance of the monthly First Friday art opening. Giant Steps is located at 229 S 20th St; hours are 11-6:30, Tues-Sat.
Custom Writing, Memento Journals
Our gift collection is expanding in exciting ways. This journal will go to Giant Steps as part of the Themis Collection.Each $95 journal measures 9”x11.4” and is covered in handmade paper that is typically earth-friendly but not guaranteed.
Because the Themis collection is more rugged, serious and androgynous, I said “no party dresses”.After all, as an ancient Greek Titaness, Themis was in charge of the “communal affairs of humans, particularly assemblies.” Able to distinguish fact from fiction, there was little folling around with Themis.
Woolly Mammoth and Tektite Beads
A lot of thought goes into each journal. One of the defining beads in both our Themis and Freja collections are woolly mammoth beads. The woolly mammoth is the common name for the extinct elephant genus Mammuthus. It became extinct at the end of the Pleistocene age 10,000 years ago. Although these beads are expensive and difficult to obtain, they are important to the GlamTribale story because we are very fond of elephants and their matriarchal social organization.
The Themis collection also contains beads made from tektites, gravel-size bodies that are composed of black, green, brown or gray, natural glass that are formed from terrestrial debris ejected during extraterrestrial impacts. It’s believed that the woolly mammoth became extinct as a result of a meteor hitting the earth.
Because Themis is a more serious collection and androgynous, we chose to use a photo of a painting involving the woolly mammoth from an out of print book on the cover. Not only do guys buy our Themis jewelry, but this journal becomes a perfect gift for a man.
We will be adding these journals to our online store very soon. But Themis and Freja journals are headed for Giant Steps this weekend.
