Jewelry from Secret Garden

At the beginning...As a small child my grandfather would share his gemstone collections with me.  He would travel through Europe in the early and Mid 1900's and collect stones all types. Later on he would share those collections with me....and then the trips to NYC  to the jewelry store...Me all dressed in my little blazer with a gold emblem..in I would walk with my grandparents...and I was mesmerized by all the sparkles...........and so it began my love affair with jewelry..

Step forward many decades  (not telling how many!) and now I can search the world for incredible gemstones and designs...  one day during my internet visits  I discovered the gemstones of Jaipur India... the sterling silver from Bali Indonesia ....and once again I was mesmerized...and now I shop for unique jewelry worldwide to share with friends and customers.

At Secret Garden Gems we try to honor fair trade from other countries, and our prices are so reasonable.  We are always looking at the latest designs and jewelry trends so we may share them with you.    Our customers will write and send me on the "hunt" for them of something special they may want.   I will contact designers have  those special pieces made for them.

An we will stay on top of the jewelry trends for 2013 It appears that Massive gold accessories was something I have noticed as a possible trend for the next fashion trends 2013. We are talking about all kinds of jewellery – from the rings and earrings to the necklaces and bracelets. Strong, massive, geometric, metallic jewellery together with the long drooping garments such as dresses and cardigans or something something more of an evening wear with the brave cut-outs

Myrtle Beach Condo by The Ocean

The Myrtle Beach area of South Carolina is a year-round vacationers' paradise along the sun-drenched shores of the Atlantic coastline. Wide, sandy beaches stretching 60 miles from Little River to Georgetown lure visitors back again and again. But the warm sand and salty sea breezes are just the beginning. The area is home to a wide selection of attractions for every age and every taste, including championship golf courses, spectacular live-entertainment theaters, thrilling amusement parks, superb shopping, fine cuisine, and historical sights.

 Nestled among the beautiful spreading oak trees along the coast of South Carolina at Myrtle Beach, lies a resort few are aware of, Summertree Village.  We are a small community of one hundred and ten condo units. The “Village” is approximately two hundred yards from the Ocean and boasts of some of the most beautiful beaches South Carolina has to offer!  Within a mile of our hideaway, there are supermarkets, restaurants galore to meet every culinary challenge, Outlet Stores and several Malls!

Recreation in Myrtle Beach is supreme!  There are over one hundred golf courses, countless miniature putting courses and many golf supply stores. There is even a par three course and driving range, within minutes of our complex. Add to this an amusement park, many Night Clubs in the area or on the beach, a comedy club, a huge water park, an aquarium and the ever popular Boardwalk at the Beach. This adds up to fun and entertainment for the entire family!
