Determined to find out how we could get one of these beauties ourselves, we started sleuthing online and discovered its creator: Jen Altman. And now we have a full-blown obsession (sorry Laurie, but obsession it is).
Altman is nothing short of a one-woman creative machine: she’s a professional photographer, author, has not one but two super cool blogs (Nectar and Cisthene), as well as having an online store called CISTHENE that sells a beautifully curated selection of jewelry, apothecary items, leather bags, and scarves created from images from her book Gem and Stone: Jewels of Earth, Sea and Sky. Oh, and she also runs the annual Instant Love retreat at our friend Maryam Montague’s Peacock Pavillion in Marrakech, Morocco. Suffice to say, we’re smitten.
Here are a few of our favorite things from CISTHENE:
