Yam is May spelled backward. Let’s mash.
Deka Ray Jewelry
What: So geometry wasn’t your forte; you can still appreciate the lines of stacked arrowheads and cuboctahedron clusters nestled on the brainy architect’s necklaces, rings, and earrings ($80-$560).
Why: Likewise, it doesn’t take a chemist to understand that pieces wrought from ten-karat Au, oxidized Ag, and a black Sn/Cu alloy look smart. (That’s gold, silver, and bronze to you, Ms. Layman.)

Market Street Candles
What: It was recently discovered that Moroccan tea glasses, silver-plated mint julep cups, and blue and white Oriental china serve as perfect vessels for lightly perfumed, hand-poured soy wax.
Why: Leave it to a California company to roll out candles ($20-$75) redolent of marijuana. If you’re not so keen on reefer, the jasmine, rose, white tea, and ginger are lovely.
Where: Online at marketstreetcandles.com.
What: An expertly edited site dedicated to the firewaters we love. Equal parts recipe manual and spirit handbook with a jigger of liquor-centric lifestyle articles goes down smooth.
Why: A self-guided tour of the 300-plus cocktails makes a great summer read.
Where: Online at liquor.com.
What: We hear white chocolate nougat and sea salt caramel were spotted getting busy in a tub of molten dark chocolate.
Why: This one has all the makings of the perfect fling: rich, sweet, and just a little salty.

Zobha Workout Gear
What: The yoga pants and tops ($12-$150) are flexible in an unconventional way: Their hues, fit, and fabric (a Supplex and Lycra blend) are as wearable at work as they are in the middle of a flying crow upside-down scorpion dog pose.
Why: Color blocks (black, navy, geranium, aqua) and tight-yet-flattering construction really slim.
