Celebrating the sea


One of the most highly anticipated art exhibitions to open this fall is “J.M.W. Turner: Watercolors From Tate,” comprising 90 works by the British artist – including paintings that have never been shown on the side of the Atlantic. And Mystic Seaport has got them.

Creature feature


Whether it’s called zoomorphic personal ornamentation or critter glitter, animals of all kinds have been a recurring motif in jewelry history. Their natural beauty and unique traits have inspired countless pieces, from the scarab beetles of ancient Egypt to David Webb’s zebras and frogs.

Fragrance is its ‘Creed’


Sometimes it takes many men to please a woman – in this case, seven of them. That’s how many men have headed The House of Creed, a perfumer that stretches back to the early 18th century. Today, it offers a variety of fragrances and bath products for women as well as men, including its new Floralie for the ladies.
