September classes and events

Are you not getting our newsletters when you expect them? You may have unsubscribed from our list, and unfortunately, we can’t re-add you to that list; it has to be done by the person who unsubscribed. If you are not seeing the Nomad newsletters and you still want to get them, please add a comment to this post. We will see those in our email and may be able to help get you back on the list.

Nomad will be closed on Monday, September 7, for Labor Day. Have a great holiday weekend!

On Saturday, August 29, we will be hosting Arlene Cohen Miller of Jewel Consultancy. Arlene, a recognized transformational healer, facilitator and spiritual intuitive, can help you connect with your mentor, guides and guardian angel to help you select the perfect stones and beads for your jewelry creations.

Perhaps you want to focus on emotional or physical healing.  Maybe you could use some help letting go of the past. Perhaps you simply want to create jewelry that is uplifting, inspiring and motivational. Arlene can provide expert guidance on choosing components for a piece that holds special significance. Readings are $20 for a ten-minute consultation.

Voices rondelles
On Sunday, September 13, we’ll be hosting Voices of the Stones for a one-day (maybe two-day) trunk show! These ladies have amazing gemstones and pearls so if you think you can make it in, you really should – both their materials and their pricing are amazing.

Weekend classes for September are up – as always, please call the store at 303-786-9746 if you are interested in being added to the list for one of these!

Under the Sea: SALE on PEARLS Through August 31, 2015


We are celebrating a theme of “Under the Sea” this month, wishing we could be on the beach in Rhode Island. All pearls will be 10% off for the rest of August. Come on in and see our other seaside featured items, including coral, shell and seaside themed charms. We also have real shells, coral, sand dollars, shore stones, and sea glass to use in your creations!

Intuitive Jewelry class rescheduled

Hey everyone – we are going to be rescheduling the Intuitive Jewelry class, currently scheduled for Friday night, 8/7, for September. No date yet, but we should have it on the September class list as we hammer that out. We’ve called everyone on our list and hope you’ll contact us to sign up on the waitlist if you’re interested in the new session. Thank you!
