LINCOLN -- A grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony for a new Lincoln
business, Penache, was held at 1006 Woodlawn Road, Lincoln on
Friday, December 15.
Penache is a unique boutique located within J&S Auto
Centre. It features unique, not-to-be-found everywhere items. The
shop is a showcase for local artists' creations including metalwork,
jewelry, stained glass, photography, ceramics and paintings.
Wearable art made by the Maasai women of Kenya takes the form of
colorful, beaded necklaces and bracelets and stamped sterling silver
jewelry is crafted by native Americans. The new boutique also
features glam jewelry, heavenly candles, gourmet food, holiday
lights and ornaments, candy, and antiques.
Owner Shelley Horn is excited to be bringing these unique treasures
to perk up lives. She said the inspiration came because, “As we age,
life gets serious. This is about fun.”
The items are not in the norm, something different that you don’t
see around here. Some are made with materials that are uncommon, and
that makes them special. The Maasai jewelry uses Zulu wood and small
vibrant, world-famous Czechoslovakian glass/crystal beads that have
a brilliance that just pops, she said.
