My friend and yoga instructor, Lisa Vest, has opened a new store in downtown Redlands. It's called Vasa and is geared toward yoga and athletic wear but many of the garments are just great casual and stylish clothes that can be worn out of the studio. Lots of cool brands including Onzie and K-Deer's madly colorful yoga pants. She has also stocked the store with mats, straps, water bottles, headbands..everything you need to inspire a more FUN practice.
Lisa is also carrying a some Redlands local goods including Parliament Chocolate (yum) and beautifully scented, all natural Bennett candles. Imagine Citrus Sage for a moment...aaahh. I've added a few pieces of my jewelry to the mix, as well.
My newest line incorporates carefully sourced natural gemstones and clean, organic lines. The pieces combine the deep indigo blue of lapis lazuli, fiery orange-red Mediterranean coral, rich green African malachite, reddish-brown carnelian, iridescent labradorite and the varied hues of green and blue turquoise from the American Beauty and Kingman mines in Arizona. All findings and clasps are sterling silver and 14K gold plate.
