Augusten was the first male ever profiled in The New York Times jewelry section and he has written about his love for "shiny things" since his first memoir, Running with Scissors was published in 2002. Augusten is also a second-generation jade collector and has a special connection to and knowledge of this fascinating, often beguiling stone. The Blue Paisley Fox specializes in the exceedingly rare, singularly unique and one-of-a-kind.
