The town of Shishmaref, Alaska lies on an island 30 miles south of the Arctic Circle and next to the Chukchi Sea. Its residents, Native Alaskan Inupiaq people, can really see Russia from their house! However, the rapidly changing climate, which  is changing faster in Alaska  than anywhere else in the nation, is keeping the Chukchi Sea from freezing as early as it used to – leaving the shoreline exposed to fall and winter storms. It’s also melting the permafrost upon which the town’s nearly 600 residents have built their homes, and the island is eroding as the permafrost melts.

Scent can have a remarkable effect on a person’s mood (as can beautiful bits of jewelry), so if you just happen to combine a gorgeous perfume and a beautiful locket, you have a winning gift this holiday season!
