Charleston Rice Beads
Rice came to the United States in 1694. A ship sailed from the island of Madagascar, bound for England, and was blown off course by a storm. It was forced to land at the colony of Charleston, South Carolina for repairs. The people there were kind to the captain and his men. The captain expressed his gratitude before he set sail by giving the governor a handful of rough rice grains. The grains were used by the colonists for seed. From this small amount of seed, the people of the colony grew enough rice to supply South Carolina and other neighboring colonies. The quality of the Carolina rice was high, and the export trade with England soon developed.
Bernice Gould started the Charleston Rice bead line in the 1970’s to help combine our history and culture with elegant fashion.
Philip Simmons Collection
Inspired by the designs of Charleston’s own Philip Simmons. Philip Simons was one of America’s last great blacksmiths. Born in Daniel Island, SC in 1912 he dedicated his life to creating masterpieces in iron. His works can be seen throughout his hometown of Charleston, and across the world in Paris and China. His work is displayed in the National Museum of American History, and the Smithsonian. We have been honored to help carry on his legacy by partnering with the Philip Simmons Foundation.
Doors of Charleston Collection
This line is inspired by the architectural masterpieces that decorate the private entryways of some of the most historic homes of Charleston
This sterling silver jewelry is made from reproduction salt spoons, small utensils from a time before table salt was free flowing as it is today. Since it was such a precious seasoning, only small portions were given to a person at the table. Salt was scooped out of an open dish known as a salt cellar, and sprinkled over food with the small spoons. Due to changes in processing of salt for consumer use, the open salt cellar and its accompanying salt spoon have become largely obsolete.
