SET up like an exhibition space but operating as a store, Denizen Design Gallery opened last week in Los Angeles. Conceived as a West Coast showcase for limited edition domestic furnishings, Denizen mixes fine art and functionality in wood, concrete, steel and plastic. The discoveries include Johnston-Ready's sleek stools made of folded sheet aluminum and benches in solid walnut (shown above with a cast aluminum table topped in glass).

Turkmenistan's president awarded himself a large gold and diamond pendant and a 30% raise to celebrate his 50th birthday, an echo of the lavish personality cult built around his autocratic late predecessor. The government also issued 200 gold and 200 silver coins decorated with a portrait of the current leader, Gurbanguly Berdimukhamedov, the Neutral Turkmenistan newspaper said Saturday.

By the sound of Kryptolight's Web site, you'd think this glowing, battery-powered pendant was blessed by the Dalai Lama and endowed with special powers by Obi-Wan Kenobi. "Kryptolight symbolizes the power of the human spirit. When you click on a Kryptolight, you are making a statement against violence, drugs, injustices and abuses of every kind. . . . Wearing a Kryptolight is just one small way that we can express this pure message to the rest of the world." At $19.

The prayer in Spanish sounded like one from an ordinary Catholic Mass. But the man who led it wore a coyote-skin headdress and called himself the last of 13 generations of brujos -- witch doctors -- in his family. FOR THE RECORD: Santa Muerte: An article in Monday's Section A about followers of the sect of Santa Muerte misspelled the last name of Rick Nahmias, a photographer who has documented the movement, as Nahmais. — The name the worshipers invoked was not that of the Virgin Mary but of Santa Muerte, or "Holy Death," a Mexican folk saint linked to narcotics trafficking, a kind of female grim reaper with a skull for a face.

A safe and a satchel raised from the wreck of the Titanic were opened on live television Wednesday, yielding soggy bank notes, coins and jewelry, including a gold pendant with a small diamond and the inscription, "May This Be Your Lucky Star." The two objects were taken out of a large debris field left between the two pieces of the severed ship, which sank 75 years ago and still lies at the bottom of the Atlantic.

In the 1960s and '70s, as Americans argued over legalizing abortion, supporters of abortion rights sometimes held coat hangers aloft as an eloquent, grisly reminder that desperate women used them - and other methods --  for horrific, sometimes fatal self-induced illegal abortions. In an April 1969 demonstration by more than 300,000 protesters in Washington, marchers wore coat hangers around their necks and held signs reading, “Never again.” Maybe that symbol has faded from memory after 40 years of legal abortion, but not everyone's forgotten.

Features such as fireplaces and wood beams not only look good in a room, they also provide a focal point for decorating. But many apartments lack these architectural elements and instead offer just plain white walls, boxy rooms and open, undefined spaces. In my 1960s-era unit, for example, living, dining and kitchen areas blend together and lack definition. Temporary plaid wallpaper was a solution in the living room. But the dining room was proving to be a challenge. The only feature in the room was a single pendant hanging from the ceiling.

Do you take this divorce? I do. With this ring I-- SMASH! -- celebrate my freedom. With a whack of a four-pound sledgehammer and Tammy Wynette's "D-I-V-O-R-C-E" twanging in the background, Linda Howell reduced her wedding ring to an unrecognizable mess of gold, silver and cubic zirconia. Howell swigged champagne and thought about her plans. Make the mess into a pendant? Earrings? Yes, a pendant. So much for tradition.
