This coming weekend is the annual spring meeting of the New England Section of the American Association of Physics Teachers. Whenever I want to buy a tie or some jewelry with an astronomy theme, I need to wait for the National Science Teachers Meeting to come to town. I always visit the booth of Astronomy to Go which has an awesome selection of astronomy themed clothing and jewelry. However, if you don’t have time to wait I recently discovered two new local online stores I wanted to share with you. If you want a bow-tie with a science theme, check out Oootie, which has a great selection. If you are looking for custom made jewelry, check out Creative Horizon. All of their jewelry is hand-made, and most of it is mosaic. I bought a great pair of mosaic cufflinks. What impressed me most, is that if you have a design that you want them to make for you, they can deliver!
I bought a couple of their wine stoppers which you can see here.
They also import some handmade jewelry from a women’s cooperative in Mexico.
