Jewelry studio makes timely move

From page A8 | November 20, 2011 |

Jeeba Jewelry Studio moved to a new spot on Nov. 1. The studio took over the space at 712 Third St., next to Bistro 33, where David Lazzari’s Watch Repair shop was for years.

Jason and Jeanne Dayne own the shop, which features Jason’s designs. Its previous location was at 212 G St., upstairs. This space has much more visibility, and a beautiful new interior, and is open just in time for holiday shopping.

Davis resident Elisa Stone recently started a new business called Book Bandage, publishing “personalized helping and healing books for children.”

She writes and publishes the custom-ordered books. Popular topics include the loss of a loved one or pet, trouble sleeping, dealing with divorce, birth stories and adoption stories.

Stone’s husband, Chris, operates Stones Catering. She owned a preschool/day care for 20 years called Play Care. It closed in June. But she “built this business based on my knowledge of children, and a love of graphic design.”

“Book Bandage is purely Web-based, where advocates for children can securely upload up to 15 images to our website and then fill out a confidential questionnaire about the book they would like us to write. My company then creates an age-appropriate professionally published book just for that child. … We even have a foundation (and hopes of becoming a nonprofit) to create books for children who cannot afford them.”

The 8 1/2-by-11-inch books have glossy, soft covers, and sell for $40, plus tax shipping. For information, visit


Fish’s Wild, “Fish Grill & More” appears close to opening, but staff interviews are still under way. The new eatery is at 516 Second St., next to Uncle Vito’s.

Menus are available on a stand outside the restaurant. Featured items include grilled short ribs; chicken katsu; grilled fish like tilapia, trout, shrimp or mahi mahi; and salads, tacos and wraps topped with grilled fish or chicken. Side orders are brown or white rice, grilled zucchini, steamed veggies and French fries.

Its phone will be (530) 753-8815, or visit


De Vere’s Irish Pub is officially open in Davis, at 217 E St. and for longer hours than one would expect. It opens at 8 a.m. on weekdays for “Study Hall sessions,” where it serves coffees, pastries, some breakfast items and, most importantly, free wifi — and no time limit. Study Hall is until 2 p.m. Otherwise, pub hours are 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. on weekends.

Call (530) 204-5533 or visit


Cooks Collision is open at 1665 Research Park Drive. It will have its Chamber of Commerce ribbon-cutting event at 4:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 5.

The auto body shop is in South Davis, between Jiffy Lube and Applebee’s. The regional chain has locations in the Bay Area and the foothills.


Initial construction is under way inside the new Asian fusion restaurant Open Rice Kitchen. It will take over the former nestware spot at 204 G St. The housewares and gift store moved earlier this year to 207-B in the E Street Plaza.

Calvin Liu, a UC Davis graduate, and co-owner Corman Yu, both of Sacramento, want to create a “comfort food” feel. Liu, who is Cantonese, said “open rice” translates to “let’s eat.” At the eatery, diners will order at a counter and have food delivered to their table.


A+ Image with Dr. Susanne Powell has a new esthetician at its office at 1756 Picasso Ave. Aimee Aquitania reports she’s the only one in Davis to offer dermaplaning or “blading.” It is “an exfoliating treatment that provides an alternative to chemical peels or microdermabrasion and is a good choice for anyone who has fine facial hair (peach fuzz), extremely sensitive skin, redness or rosacea, or visible facial veins,” she said.

Aquitania performs a host of other spa services, including chemical peels and hair removal. For more information, call (530) 750-3500 or go to
