Native Maps

Native Maps

“We make minimal, beautifully-crafted city neighborhood maps.
Founded in our tiny attic-studio in 2014, we set out to make attractive prints for the modern home. We hand-pull each map on acid-free, 100 lb. paper. Our paper is made with renewable energy, coming from the hydroelectric mill at the French Paper Co. We print in small batches with non-toxic acrylic ink. Hand-printing each map ensures that it passes through our hands several times before it reaches yours.
Neighborhoods are organic. They grow and change with each generation. We cull information from multiple sources to cross-reference each neighborhood, and we work with a team of locals in each city to get the details just right. It may take a little longer, but we believe it’s worth the wait.”

“In Greek mythology, Poseidon was the god of the sea. Poseidon possessed many awesome powers and was the guardian of vast riches in the deepest waters of the ocean. Among the most prized treasures were the powerful Rings of Poseidon, which were scattered throughout the world’s oceans long ago after this ill-tempered god’s epic battle against the legendary hero, Odysseus. Take your Submarings journey to 4 different dive locations and help recover the mythical Rings of Poseidon!

This fun game works by using a very cool principle of science called “Bernoulli’s Principle,” which is related to fluid dynamics, or the movement of fluid. In the case of this game, the fluid used is water.

When you push the buttons on the base, the force from your finger creates water pressure within the tank which is proportional to how hard you press the buttons (pressure = force/area). The pressure pushes on the water molecules and gives them speed to move (kinetic energy). As the water molecules move, they are forced through a narrow nozzle into the tank, which causes them to move even faster as there is less space for the molecules to pass through.

Therefore, the harder you push the button, the faster the rings will move! Pretty cool. huh? Watch the path of the rings to give you an indication of what’s happening with the water. With enough practice, you’ll know how much pressure to apply to get the rings on the pegs!

Isabell Grace

Isabelle Grace

“We make simple, beautiful, elegant pieces inspired by the most important things in life. Family, children, love, marriage. Our jewelry celebrates life. Your life and what your about. We make jewelry that people connect with.

From the heart
When I first decided to start my own jewelry line, I was inspired by a gold locket my grandmother wore that held a photo of my grandfather. I loved how personal it was and wanted to carry on that beautiful tradition. Whether it’s from the Isabelle Grace Collection, inscribed with special words, or custom inscribed in honor of those who are close to your heart, each of our pieces is designed to be a keepsake. 

Designed for life and love
What makes Isabelle Grace Jewelry so special? Honestly, it’s every one of our customers! When someone comes to our site and puts together their own one-of-a-kind piece by selecting from our personalized charms, initials , and semiprecious stones to create a piece that tells their story. Whether celebrating a birth, wedding or any of life’s milestones, our jewelry is more than an accessory, and makes a memorable gift for friends and loved ones.

Timeless style and enduring quality
Sure, we love a good trend. But at its core, Isabelle Grace Jewelry is all about accessories that are effortless, elegant and timeless. And because we believe in quality as much as looking good, each earring, necklace and bracelet is made by hand, right here in our New Bedford, MA studio.  There’s no assembly line, no mass production. Instead, our designs are made of the best materials and expertly crafted by people who love making beautiful things. And that will never go out of style.”
