Charleston Baubles
Jewelry designer Temple St. Clair has debuted three of her signature rock crystal amulets inspired by Charleston’s design and architecture. The ”Pineapple Gate,” ”Sword Gate,” and ”Rainbow Row” amulets are available at Croghan’s Jewel Box. The New York-based fine jewelry designer has a long-standing relationship with the King Street retailer; her mother lived in Charleston and St. Clair sold her earliest pieces from her Legare Street home. Ten percent of the sale of each amulet is being donated to local nonprofits, including the Preservation Society, Historic Charleston Foundation, and the Humanities Foundation, which develops affordable housing in the Southeast. 308 King St.,
