tourmaline

I love checking in with Akira, who runs twist on line. She is always pointing me toward beautiful, tempting jewelry like Margaret Solow's tourmaline necklaces. Tourmaline is a semi-precious crystal, and comes in a variety of watery, translucent colors. Myths abound about its calming, balancing, and protective powers. Margaret's simple, elegant shapes remind me of gently washed beach stones, immediately bringing to mind soothing sounds of the ocean.
