NEW YORK -- Steve Morris and Linda Dougan, a couple from Woodstock, N.Y., design a jaunty line of lightweight sterling silver and copper animals, hearts, stars and moons on earrings, bracelets and pendants under the name "Morgan." Their styles go well with biker boots and jeans.At the other extreme is Roxanne Assoulin, a Manhattan designer, who shows neck, wrist and ear gear featuring materials ranging from silver and gold to hand-blown glass, wood and leather.

At her in-home studio in Catonsville, jewelry artist Barbara Giles creates deceptively simple pieces of stone-and-metal, which she sells online (barbaragiles jewelry.com) and from elegant small display cases in local boutiques, such as Art and Artisan on Main Street in Ellicott City. They are beautiful pieces meant to be worn -- smoothly polished cut opal; softly colored sea glass connected with sterling silver; magnificent jade petals in pinks and oranges; amazing lasso necklaces of crocheted sterling silver perfect for twisting, tucking and tying.

Q: It has been six months since I smoked my last cigarette, and now that I've successfully kicked the habit, I'm wondering if my old cigarette cases (some of which are quite fancy) have any value. Some of the cases date from the '40s.A: The value of a cigarette case depends on its design, age, the material it's made from, whether it's signed by a famous maker or whether it belonged to a famous person. For instance, at a Christie's East auction in New York in June, several cigarette cases sold for sizable sums.

Diamonds are a girl's best friend. Dogs are man's best friend. So naturally the two have been combined into high-end dog products from the lavish canine lovers at DogNY.com. The average dog would be content finding a new bone or tennis ball under the tree, but more sophisticated dog owners know their pooch deserves something more glamorous. Your four-legged girl will feel like the belle of the ball with the Platinum Studded Collar and a new bottle of La Pooch perfume. Or, maybe she would enjoy a spa day, complete with Paw Butter, Herbal Massage Oils and an Orange Peel Oil Shampoo bar. Canine companions also know their pets deserve only the best in bedding and dining.

Back in the early '80s, Express was the ultimate in cool, trendy and affordable clothing for young women and the young at heart. Neon green V-neck sweater? Got it at Express. Rubber and rhinestone bangles? Express. Bananarama-esque denim overalls? Express, of course. What's doing at Express lately? Judging from its fall line for men and women, we're talking tailored-but-trendy suits and separates for men and women alike. And there are lots of cool jeans, and some playful, casual stuff for day and night, too. The national retailer, a division of Limited Brands, just opened a new 11,000-square-foot store in Towson Town Center that sells men's and women's clothing.

Dana Lande was an MBA candidate at the University of Maryland College Park, trying to figure out a way to break into the saturated world of jewelry design. She was a semester behind on her entrepreneurial tract, while most of her fellow classmates were graduating in the spring. So, she might have jealously grumbled when a graduate-to-be asked Lande to make her some classy, but fun jewelry to wear at the May 2004 graduation ceremonies. Instead, Lande showed up in class with four bracelets and a few pairs of earrings she had made out of natural stones in the university's colors and dangling with silver turtles - the campus mascot.

When it comes to cosmetics this holiday season, round is where it's at. Maybe it's the divinity of the circle. Perhaps it's that round shapes remind us of Christmas ornaments and snowballs. Or maybe it's the fact that cosmetics packaged in round containers just look cool. Whatever the case, if round makes your world go round, check out Sephora's cute little Round-a-Pout lip gloss (right)-- a sphere filled with four sheer shades ranging from light pink to bright pink that allow the wearer to go from nice to naughty with just a swipe.

Bringing out their true colors Darla Albornoz (left) colors her hair, and she's not afraid to admit it. In fact, doing so landed her in a national print ad for Clairol. Albornoz, who is 27 and lives in Pasadena, was one of three women who won the modeling gig as part of the Clairol Nice 'n Easy Be in an Ad contest. All the software engineer had to do was send a photograph and a 100-word essay about how the product "brings honest, natural beauty" into her life. In her essay, Albornoz, a brunette, wrote about how she and her mother color their gray together.

Table manners took a decidedly civilized turn with the use of knives and forks. Now, the flatware itself is undergoing a bit of an evolution, this time focused on bringing style and substance to the table.Fabricated by artisans and architects alike, flatware patterns today are taking inspiration from nature, whimsy and classical design elements. The curved bowl of a spoon might call to mind a graceful arch, the handle a twig, a leaf frond or the austere look of art deco details.The handle might be hammered to a rumpled texture or ripple in a gentle, sinuous wave.

For months I have lived in a secret world, wedded to a Tiffany credit of $112 and change. Catalog follows catalog in the mail, and I savor the options each page presents, browsing among jewels, household accessories and other gewgaws, trying to decide on my secret, selfish Christmas gift.The windfall is the aftermath of a visit by friends from abroad. In parting, they thoughtfully presented me with a stylish stamp box, unaware that I already had one that had belonged to my grandmother and that I treasure.
