Spring is a great time to refresh your look and we’ve got some new lines in the Museum Store just in time to help!

ax + apple

Jamie Lyn of ax + apple dabbled in almost every possible visual art before falling in love with jewelry design. Having worked on a few period films in her stint as a props person, she accumulated an assortment of vintage findings, including an array of world coins, various men’s pocket watch chains, and pen knives. She began artfully combining these and other fine vintage components, with a modern eye and an appreciation for “making things like they used to.”

MAWI London

MAWI London is a luxury costume jewelry line based in Shoreditch, London. Inspired by Indian jewels and the British punk scene, MAWI is high-glam and high-attitude. With a flagship store in London, a Montenegro boutique, and a presence in stores like Harrods and Selfridges, HMNS is proud to be only the store in Texas (and the only museum in North America) to represent the line.
