For over 37 years, Forsythe Jewelers has been refining the term “relaxed luxury.” It’s a phrase that doesn’t seem, at first, to make a lot of sense — but those who have experienced the world-class designer jewelry and service offered at Forsythe know that the term perfectly describes the store’s core.

“Children Coping with Cancer”

BY SPEAKING BOOKS

Thanks to the support of the Rotary Club of Hilton Head, children fighting cancer around the U.S. are introduced to David, a fictional pediatric cancer patient who explains the disease in simple terms and offers ideas to help them cope.

This was one of those things that weren’t supposed to happen — at least, not according to the face of SCETV’s new show, “By the River.”

Early this year, longtime local news reporter Holly Bounds Jackson took over as director of content and operations at SCETV’s Beaufort office, stepping in right as the station launched a partnership with University of South Carolina Beaufort’s broadcast program. The deal gave USCB broadcast students use of the SCETV studio and equipment for educational purposes, but their professor — determined to take things beyond the classroom — had bigger ideas.

On Nov. 10, join Sea Pines Montessori Academy as it celebrates 50 years instructing Hilton Head Island children.

Alumni, staff and special guests will gather at 10 a.m. under the Liberty Oak in Harbour Town to bury a time capsule containing yearbooks, photos, newspapers, wallpaper from the school’s lobby, clothing, ornaments and other objects. Speakers also will reflect on the school’s past and look ahead to its future.

In 2004, South Carolina was one of the last states to legalize tattooing, and it took regulators more than two years to establish rules and allow the first tattoo shops to open.

Today, there are multiple shops on Hilton Head and in Bluffton, Beaufort and Hardeeville that draw local customers and vacationers as well as clientele from Savannah and beyond.

HERITAGE FINE JEWELRY PUTS ITS HEART — AND FAMILY — INTO CRAFTING PERFECT PIECES.

Since the beginning of time, ancient civilizations have been using shells, stones and other items like bones to carefully craft meaningful jewelry and decorative accessories. With the development of metal-working, jewelry became an art form that speaks to the heart, delighting wearers.

A few years back, Huntley Tarleton was looking for a way to add some flair to the Motoring Midway at the annual Hilton Head Island Concours d’Elegance & Motoring Festival. The theme was “The Quest for Speed and Style,” and Tarleton needed to find additional exhibits that would capture patrons’ attention and interest as they passed between class car exhibits on the first and 18th holes at Port Royal Golf Club.

PINNACLE COLLECTORS PETER AND MERLE MULLIN’S CARS HEARKEN BACK TO AN ARTISTIC ERA WHEN FRANCE WAS THE TOP OF THE AUTOMOTIVE WORLD.

It was 37 years ago, but Peter Mullin can still tell you everything about the moment his love of art deco cars began. Mullin’s Paul Williams-designed home in Oxnard, California, had made the perfect backdrop for a friend’s photoshoot centered around classic cars, and when Mullin saw the 1948 Delahaye 135MS, it sparked an admiration for France’s pre-war fame for automotive elegance.

BUMPER-TO-BUMPER EXCITEMENT FILLS THE CALENDAR OF EVENTS DURING THIS YEAR’S EVENT.

Odds are good that if you’re local, you just refer to it as “Concours.” As in, “You going to Concours?” (The correct response to which is, of course, yes).

But there’s a reason why the event we so casually shorten has a mouthful of a title: Hilton Head Island Concours d’Elegance & Motoring Festival. That’s because the Concours itself, a parade of stunningly elegant vehicles before a panel of judges, is just a small part of the weeklong celebration of automotive refinement and excitement.
