Perfect gift for the “Non-Girly” Girl

My old college roommate, Sara,  currently lives in her car somewhere between Wyoming, Colorado, Arizona and California.  She is a NOLS rock climbing instructor and absolutely loves life.  She rocks, literally!

The only problem with her new found passion being every year when August rolls around I am at a complete loss as to what to give her for her birthday.  In college I usually just got her a fun pair of earrings or a snazzy bracelet to go with the outfit she chose to wear to our favorite beach bar that evening.  Now, however, in our “adult” lives, gifts aren’t so easy.  She doesn’t have space or a need for “things” and those amazing gold dangling embellished earrings of years past don’t exactly have a place in the great outdoors.

Luckily, I just discovered Accessories by ASH.  According to her website, “Allison Hertzberg makes jewelry in her village in her East Village (NYC) apartment and dreams of more closet space.  A strong believer that one piece of jewelry can make an outfit, Allison strives to produce under-stated statement pieces.”  I think she does an amazing job!  Birthday present for Sara, check.

Some of my favorite pieces in the collection were inspired by skills Allison picked up while doing a documentary on lobster fishing in Maine.  Check them out:

Cyrano de Bergerac Rings

I stumbled across these rings today while visiting Jewel Box Dreams, and I am in love!

Cyrano de Bergerac rings

Classic literature + fashion accessory = win!

The creator, famed French designer Serge Thoraval, was known for incorporating famous literary works into his pieces.  He included words from Plato, Eluard and even the Bible.

The following is an excerpt from Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand:

Un baiser, mais à tout prendre, qu’est-ce?
Un serment fait d’un peu plus près,
une promesse plus précise,
un aveu qui veut se confirmer,
un point rose qu’on met sur l’i du verbe aimer,
C’est un secret qui prend la bouche pour oreille,
un instant d’infini qui fait un bruit d’abeille,
une communion ayant un goût de fleur,
C’est une façon d’un peu se respirer le coeur,
et d’un peu se goûter, au bord des lèvres, l’â me!

A kiss, when all is said,—what is it?
An oath that’s ratified,—a sealed promise,
A heart’s avowal claiming confirmation,—
A rose-dot on the ‘i’ of ‘adoration,’—
A secret that to mouth, not ear, is whispered,—
Brush of a bee’s wing, that makes time eternal,—
Communion perfumed like the spring’s wild flowers,—
The heart’s relieving in the heart’s outbreathing,
When to the lips the soul’s flood rises, brimming!
