Nellie Bly, store cat

Nellie Bly was an American journalist who was widely known for her record-breaking trip around the world in 72 days in emulation of Jules Verne's fictional character Phineas Fogg, and an expose in which she worked undercover to report on a mental institution from within.

When this 10-week old arrived at Just Tantau, she immediately embarked upon a tour of the premises, found a place to take a nap, and then did so.

These earrings are made from vintage typewriter keys. Most of my typewriter keys are from machines made before 1945 that have metal rims. Some are just a piece of paper with a glass cover, and occasionally I de-construct those and insert something else, like these.

When I wear these, I like to switch them up occasionally and see if anyone notices.

Everyone has a stash

of things that

need fixing.


so we can plan your workshop!

Bring that bag/box of jewelry that you've had for years. Let's make something new for you to actually wear again!

A hidden gem...

We are tucked away

at the back of the parking lot

next to Bee Taqueria.

Feel free to request an appointment

outside of our regular business hours.
