Love at First Sight: Global Elements

by Heather

One of the many vignettes in the shop
Do you believe in love at first sight? Well, I didn't think I did until I discovered Global Elements of Scottsdale, AZ. Located just a block north of WestWorld, it's an incredibly chic retail establishment filled with unique objets d'art, jewelry, clothing, and home furnishings. The interior is reminiscent of a loft and was designed and built by a local architect. An interior designer rents the upstairs space and is available for consultations. Even without having something in mind to purchase, I can always find something I didn't know I wanted or needed.
Here are a few items that came home with me from various forays into Global Elements. On the right are two orange and  dark gold chain necklaces and coordinating earrings.
Couldn't resist the unusual shape of this necklace and the neutral colors.
The "books" made from lightweight wood caught my eye so I bought four slightly different versions. Love to use them to add varying heights to vignettes.
This necklace was on consignment from a jewelry collector. There were so many incredible choices from this lady's collection, but my love of orange made this purchase easy.  My friend, Susan, sells her exquisite handmade scarves and wraps periodically at Global Elements. I never know what I will find at the shop when I stop by but I know I'll always see something unique!

If you're ever in Scottsdale, stop in at Global Elements. Tina is usually at the front desk and is a sweetheart who's as much fun as the store!

Have a wonderful week and if you're in Arizona right now, don't let the heat get you down. Fall will be here before we know it (and if I say that often enough, I might start believing it).
