FRESH STOCK: Necklaces by Mafia

Mafia is one of our favorite jewelry lines around here. If you've been following, you'd know why. Mafia has clever designs that stir nostalgia from our youth. From "rock, paper, scissors" to a little airplane with a rotating propeller and wheels, a vintage microphone, and what about the two pieces of a puzzle that have "you " and "me" inscribed on each? You have to see them for yourself. Limited quantities (and by limited we mean one of each and maybe two airplanes. Maybe.)

The Edge of Love

I have somehow finally managed to stumble across this film after seeing photos from it over the last couple of months but never knowing what film it was until I was walking down the aisles in blockbuster and saw it sitting there in New Releases. I promptly rented it. This film is wonderful. It is shot so beautifully and artistically well done. It was like watching an art film at a museum but a full feature and more coherent.

The film takes place in the WWII era when a young singer, Vera (Keira Knightley), runs into a her first love who is the famous Dylan Thomas (Matthew Rhys). They both still feel a love for each other which is complicated by the fact that Dylan Thomas is now married to a very captivating woman, Caitlin (Sienna Miller). Unexpectedly, Vera and Caitlin become best friends. Vera ends up marrying a soldier, William (Cillian Murphy) who leaves to fight in the war. While he is gone the three friends move away from London back to their home of Wales. Things take a turn there and become even more complicated when Vera's husband returns from the war a very different man.

The movie reminded me of one of my favorite books, Henry and June, by Anaïs Nin.

I suggest to any of you artsy or romantic people to watch this film. It is strikingly beautiful.

enjoy
