Shara McGlinn, Owner


Our story in a nutshell? Well…

It all began with my mother asking me, “Shara, you’ve been in the fashion industry for nine years. Why don’t you open up a boutique?”

What a fantastic idea that was! I realized that with all my experience in fashion and all of her experience as a silver jewelry wholesaler, we could create something amazing and affordable for people to enjoy.

And so Onyx was born.

We hopped on a plane and traveled to countries across the world, personally selecting and designing clothing, jewelry and accessories. The more we gathered colorful and unique items, the more excited we got. We had never seen these items anywhere else! We wanted to give people new things that delighted them. We wanted people to stop them on the street and ask, “Where in the world (literally) did you find that?!”

Please browse the outcome of our journeys, check back often for new additions and, most importantly, be inspired by the artisans of the world!

It’s about to be that gift-giving time! Make someone smile!

Dearest friends,

We’ve recently set up a box at the store for people to bring in new toys for the Heartland Alliance! Close to Christmas time, we’ll take the box over to them and they will give the gifts out to the appropriate children.

If you feel so inclined to give a gift to those in need, drop by with a gift (wrapped or unwrapped) and specify the gender/age for the gift so it can make it into the hands of the right person. 

We have also recently had a lot of items shipped in for the store that would make wonderful gifts for your loved ones this season! (Follow our Instagram @onyxchicago to keep up with everything new! Our Facebook page, is a great way to stay updated too!)

Some of the new things at Onyx include:  a variety of cards, candles, gift sets, incense, scarves, gloves, jewelry, all-natural soaps (even some specially made for your dog!), oil lamps and oils, and figurines made of wire and seeds, to name a few. Take a look at the pictures!

If you see something you like and it’s not up on this site for sale yet, feel free to write us at and we will be more than happy to ship to you!

Much love and Happy Holidays to your and your loved ones!
