Super-Exciting Winter Solstice Announcement!

I've been sitting on this for a while, but everything has been finalized and set in order so I can tell you all:

Kokoba jewelry is available for sale in the Da Vinci Center gift shop!

The Da Vinci Center is a hands-on science museum for kids and families in Allentown, PA, not far at all from where I grew up. It has lots of great activities and exhibits, and most importantly we share similar visions: making science (and math!) fun and accessible. The Da Vinci Center was also a huge part of my growing-up years, though not in the form it is today. Prior to this funky new building, the Da Vinci Center was known as the SMART center and operated out of nearby Lehigh University, where they broadcast footage for the JASON project. As an elementary school student, I attended some of their JASON project broadcasts at Lehigh University (and even had the t-shirt for YEARS afterwards to prove it!). Later, they moved off Lehigh Campus into their own building (that had previously been part of Bethlehem Steel), called the Discovery Center, and I had a few memorable field trips there as well: I remember crawling around in a dark labyrinth, a static electricity display, landfills, and more. As of 2005, the center runs in its own new building on the Cedar Crest College campus. Stop by and wave hello to my jewelry display if you're ever in the Lehigh Valley!

I hope to have pictures of the display to show you guys soon. From everything I've heard about it, it looks great!


  1. How exciting! Congratulations, this is so cool!

    1. Thanks! I'm super pumped. Three pieces out of 10 have already sold so I am busting my hump to make and mail more. Ahhh~~~
