Apricus: Adjective (Latin) sunny, having lots of sunshine, warmed by the sun
"Warmed by the sun" — who knew there was even a word for arguably one of the most relaxing, wholesome, good-for-your-soul sensations
There's just something about a little time in the sun that makes all the difference.
This little-known Latin word is quickly becoming one of our favorites, even though it never quite made it into our English dictionaries or day-to-day conversations. In a way, it feels like a well-kept secret that we're so glad to be in on :)
The Victorians had a way of infusing meaning and sentiment into the littlest things, turning once ordinary objects and belongings into symbolic keepsakes to be shared and cherished between friends, family, and lovers.
The popular 19th century belt and buckle
jewelry has always been some of our most favorite.
As a symbol of love, it represents the binding
love between the wearer and the giver. In mourning, the pieces were a sweet symbol of
the strength that holds us together through grief.
We designed this piece to be a simple, timeless addition to any collection.
Last year, we worked together with Dialogue on Race Louisiana to find a symbol that might in some way capture the essence of DORLA and share a bit of the story of the good work they do in our community. After zoom meetings, phone conversations, research, and feedback, we
landed on the cicada.
In honor of the almost one-year anniversary of the Cicada Pendant launch, we'd like to introduce the Cicada Cuff! We'll be offering a limited run of 50 bronze Cicada Cuffs.
Until November 20, 2021, 10% of the proceeds of each Cicada Pendant and Cicada Cuff purchased will be donated to
Dialogue on Race Louisiana.
Dachshund, wiener dog, sausage dog, doxin, doxie, weenie dog... Whatever you call them, chances are if you have one, you're obsessed
K9-inspired pieces in our future.
Have you ever been in a meeting or class and found yourself clicking your pen, tapping the table or fidgeting in general?
It’s probably safe to say most of us have at some point. Whether it’s nervous energy, boredom or just plain old ants in your pants, we find our fingers searching for something to fiddle with.
The Daydreamer Cuff is equal parts wearable
art + fidgety gadget.
You can use it as a way to funnel some of that frenetic energy during a zoom call, mindlessly run your fingers back and forth as you daydream, ground yourself in something tactile when you need to get out of your head, or even occupy a little one for a few minutes.
Think of it as your very own grown-up version of those fun bead coasters we played with in the waiting room at the doctors office :)
The gumball collection was inspired by the nostalgic fun of dropping a coin into a gumball machine and crossing your fingers you get the one you want!
Gumball and vending machine toys have been making us smile since the turn of the century. We took this experience to the next
level with a timeless collection of original hand-carved, lost-wax-cast pieces.
Of course you can order them online, but for the full experience, be sure to visit our new storefront: the MIMOSA Shopette in Mid City Baton Rouge. You can drop an old-school token into the machine when you spend at least $40 and hope the charm you want rolls out!

Inspired by and named after our talented former Head of Production Grace Holden!
This little piece is perfect for layering or wearing every day all on its own.

MANMOSA BELT BUCKLE
This belt buckle is TOUGH enough for survival and NICE enough to wear to a wedding!
It has a knife to cut open boxes, a bottle opener to open your favorite drink, and a secret hiding place to keep little things (because the kid in all of us still loves a secret hiding place.)
MIMOSA LEAF COLLECTION
Our namesake collection was inspired by our favorite tree, the Mimosa tree. It's special to us
for sentimental reasons, but we also love what it represents.
The Mimosa tree is known as the "Tree of Collective Happiness," and that captures exactly what we're working to achieve more of in the world. Read the full story of the Mimosa Leaf Collection.
PECKY CYPRESS CUFF
This cuff was inspired by the beautiful and rare Pecky Cypress found deep in the swamps, bayous, and rivers of south Louisiana.
A fungus creates elongated holes in the wood, making Pecky Cypress quite recognizable. It's exceedingly rare, hard to find, and expensive when you do find it.
This piece is a nod to the hidden treasures of south Louisiana.
