Get down to Shop Boswell this Saturday for a wonderful event full of beautiful handmade things at crazy low prices up to 50% off. You’ll find lovely things marked way down because they were on display, prototypes or have minor flaws (often barely noticeable) that make them not quite retail quality standards ready.

Shop Visit: Dea Dia

Having opened just last month on North Albina (right before the bend that takes you on to North Mississippi), Dea Dia is jewelry designer Jessica Lawson’s sparkly new home base for her jewelry line of the same name. Dea Dia is where she both handcrafts and sells her own designs alongside a complementary collection of apparel, housewares, apothecary, paper goods, and accessories created by some of her favorite indie brands including Portland’s Natalie Joy and Make It Good, among many others.

Jessica did an amazing job building out her space which was an absolute blank slate when she got the keys. Concrete floors and pendants lights from Portland’s own Pigeon Toe compliment her custom-built fixtures, including a stellar mirrored sliding wall and fun jewelry displays. Behind that sliding wall you’ll find Jessica’s studio which allows her to create jewelry on-site. During my visit she had just completed two new earring designs which were the product of whim and experimentation and they’d just hit the floor. That’s the beauty of Dea Dia, there is a steady stream of exciting treasures to discover.

Speaking of which, new fall apparel from Make It Good and Brooklyn’s A & R have just hit the Dea Dia shop. A fan of natural fibers and easy silhouettes, Jessica’s apparel selections are contemporary and feature cozy cotton and linen. Alongside the apparel are vibrant tote bags and pouches handmade in Oaxaca using organic wool and naturally derived dyes by Ilano Design, dazzling brass plant mobiles from Natalie Joy, modernist ceramics by Philly-based Zola, and even a selection of pyrite stones, incense from Incausa, sage smudge wands and palo santo sticks.

For a shop on the smaller side, Dea Dia is bursting with dreamy goodies that are perfect for treating yourself or loved ones while somehow managing to not feel crowded. And on a good day, you might catch a sighting of Jessica’s daughter, Astrid, who is definitely one of the cutest shop babies in all of Portland.

Dea Dia is located at 4523 N Albina and is open Thursdays from 11AM to 6PM, Friday — Saturday from 11AM to 7PM and Sunday — Monday from 11AM to 6PM. You can also shop Dea Dia jewelry online. Be sure to follow @deadia in Instagram and like Dea Dia Jewelry on Facebook on to keep up on new designs, sales, and more.
