3.0 out of 5 stars A hardcopy of this book would be worth if for any author/artist, Nov. 16 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This novel looses some of its aesthetic appeal in kindle form. The author clearly sought to present a visually appealing object when placing quotes, which is lost in the digital format. Long quotes do not appear indented, and it is often misleading when they start and stop. Some of the illustrations did not make it into the kindle file as well. Content wise, a must read for any artist/author, but Hyde can be repetitious and bland at times. He gets lost in hermeneutical circles and seems to lack the literary power to get himself out or clarify some of his points.

They are beautiful gems, but one post was bent and the other earring's gem was chipped in three spots (although not enough to notice).

More conjecture than real scholarship, although it includes a forward by a Professor at Harvard.

I had one before that would buzz when my speaker was fully charged, but this one is well made!

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh... the lid. Ah. I understand., Sept. 25 2015
I tend to break the beakers on these things, but this one is covered well by the handle. It does "leak" a few grinds if you don't get "coarse" coffee grounds, but otherwise is great. Solution: strain your coffee through a filter when you pour.

At first I was disappointed with the lid. I thought that it poured really slowly, then I realized that the lid is shaped so that you can keep the steam in, then swivel it around and use it to pour! Certainly a great design.

5.0 out of 5 stars but turned out to be a great size (and light weight) as a lapel pin, Sept. 25 2015
I adore this brooch. I thought it might be a little large, but turned out to be a great size (and light weight) as a lapel pin. I'm looking forward to wearing it! It's a combination of chic, but also just everyday wearability. Ever Faith also sends extra crystals just in case.

5.0 out of 5 stars but she loved this and it was a great size, Sept. 25 2015
This looks large in the picture and I was a little anxious that it would be too big. It was a gift for a friend who's not big into large jewellery things, but she loved this and it was a great size. They also sent extra crystals just in case.

4.0 out of 5 stars Larger than expected, Sept. 25 2015
They're are surprisingly big. But look great! They are about the size of a quarter, so be warned. Also, Ever Faith sends along extra crystals just in case you loose some.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sleek and sexy in a punk rocker sort of way., Oct. 21 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a very sleek watch. It is darker than posted, but is feminine in a kind of punk rock sort of way. The face is gorgeous. The band is sparkly. It's a nice light watch. The only thing that would add to it would be an indigo feature. Still great for darker outfits!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful new addition to my collection!, Oct. 21 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a beautiful watch. I bought it to replace a Nixon with a similar Mother of Pearl face. But I actually like this one better. It fits great (there is extra length, so you can adjust--for me the bigger the better). It is a little heavy, but it is a nice weight, especially if you like to wear your watch loose. I was worried that the settings might be cheap, but they are not. I doubt I will lose any of the quartz, any time soon. It has a wonderful shimmer in the sun and looks very nice. The band is made of alternating brushed and polished metal. Over all, it is now one of my favourite watches! I was a little skeptical because I was saving like $500 and some of the other reviews of other watches by Lucien Piccard mentioned cheapness, but I think the $50 spent was well worth it! (no matter the catch... well unless it stops working). I'd say, maybe it's just old stock (2011) and they are trying to re-coup the materials? Who knows?

Anyway, beautiful watch.
