Treasured gemstones, artisan carvings of ancient symbols drawn from Eastern and
Western traditions, vintage heirloom tapestries and luscious silk are the stuff of
which our exquisite products are made. Designer and author Barbara Bacigalupi
is the force behind these unique and often one of a kind creations. More
important than the designs themselves, are the opportunities for strengthening our
humanity through the learning that accompanies each.
Until now, Barbara's semi-precious jewelry designs have been reserved for
personal appearances. Shop her newly released collection of more than
four hundred pieces of sophisticated statement jewelry. Drawing from a most diverse
bounty of gemstones and pearls, there are sure to be fashion-forward creations
that speak to your individual style.
Barbara's hallmark collection brings inspirational messages about
essential human values together with symbolic carved medallions.
Use them to relax through the technique of mindful meditation,
then apply self-directed visioning to chart a bright future for yourself.
Decorate your home with them; anywhere you might embellish with
a tassel – whether door handles, drawer pulls, candles,
lamps or vases and ginger jars.
JAPANESE OBI Re-Designs

and personal fashion, as pillows, wall scrolls, and personal accessories. Then
someday share your treasure with the next generation.

beauty, be a reflection of the inner beauty that you can bring
to meet each of life’s challenges with compassion and grace.

Discovered by an ancient Chinese princess, luxurious silk thread spun into
fabric with unique iridescent sheen, was among
the first treasures of the East to spread to the
West. Today, this natural fiber still can bring your home the
same rich textures and luscious colors once reserved for Emperors and
Empresses of exotic lands.
When a major design statement is called for, to demand attention as
a unique art object, consider the use of Architectural Size TRULYHUMANmedallions.
These sculptural totems that range from 18” to three to five feet in length will
transform large scale candleholders, vases, niches, walls and doors into
works of art.
This global and eclectic approach to design fuses East with West in ways that
humanize. The focus is placed on elements and themes drawn from nature, combined
with quality furnishing and antiques. Enjoy the design ideas put forth in our lookbook magazine.
