Anne Taintor Flasks and YouNeedADrink.com are in Time Out New York. We appreciate all the promotion we can get. These Anne Taintor flasks are great and everyone should have one, or two...or three. Of course, I made sure to let the good people at Anne Taintor know about the promotion. They were very happy and grateful. Even Anne sent me a personal Email. I love her!

You just have to take a look at these great new necklaces. Sueanne Shirzay of Shirzay Gallery created this line of cocktail inspired jewelry. We came across her beautiful pieces and just had to offer them to you.
There are three styles from which to choose:
The Appletini Necklace Delicious faceted grape green chalcedony paired with a cherry carnelian and sterling martini glass charm. 18'' sterling chain. Sterling lobster clasp closure.
The Cosmopolitan Necklace A sterling martini glass complete with stirrer is paired with a teardrop faceted red carnelian and tart slice of lime peridot nugget. YUMMY!!!! Sterling chain length is 18''. Sterling lobster clasp closure.
The Lemon Drop Necklace Tart and sweet! A lovely microfaceted lemon chalcedony is joined with a sugary clear round crystal and sterling martini glass charm. Sterling chain length is 18''. Sterling lobster clasp closure.
Sueanne's Bio: It is so much fun to make something with my own hands that goes on to become a part of someone else's life. At this very moment somebody somewhere out there might be feeding their kids, going to the gym, writing a novel, laughing with girlfriends over cosmos, or having a romantic dinner... all while wearing something I made. It's thrilling when something I make suits somebody so perfectly. Doing trunk shows is fun because it gives me a chance to see how things look on a variety of people. I had an art gallery for while and learned to make jewelry rather unexpectedly while popping in on a class at my own gallery in 2008. I got hooked within minutes. The infatuation has continued and I now sell the jewelry at trunk shows, galleries and local shops, as well as my two online stores. My philosophy is to create beautiful pieces that can be worn everyday or for an occasion, alone or layered for a more stylized look. I like to think my jewelry enhances the beauty of the woman wearing it. I don't want people to see the jewelry wearing the woman, rather the woman wearing the jewelry. I love working with color, color and more color. Semi-precious stones such as chalcedony, amethysts and aquamarines are among my favorites. I am happy to do custom orders, and love working with other creative people to create the perfect piece. My studio workspace migrates between my loft overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Long Island NY and mountain house in the Catskills in a little place we have up there. You can't beat the silence and beauty of these kinds of landscapes. The pink sunsets on Long Island are really inspiring.
