I’ve been admiring the new spring collection from Uni by Portland jewelry designer Kiersten Crowley (remember her inspiring attic studio space?). Some of the new pieces echo shapes from her previous collections and some of them are inspired by her favorite sculptures by Eduardo Chillida. They all work beautifully with her entire line as well. My faves are the Chillida Stack Rings, the Tsuki Necklace, the Mies Ring, the Tsuki Stud Earrings, and the Mesa Cuff. Also, check out Kiersten’s namesake KC jewelry line (that Seed Pearl Necklace is AMAZING!) and find @unijewelry on instagram. More HERE.
A SWEET DEAL

There are some wonderful things at Oroboro right now and their new merchandise styling is pretty dreamy. YAY! It’s really spring now, so looking at sunny styles is starting to feel right — even if we’re still sloshing through rain puddles here in the Pacific NW. Some of my current favorites are the Melon Pia Dress (that color reminds me of my favorite English roses!), the Mer Paisley Thalassa Dress, the Crudo Caftan Dress, Grey Linen Jumpsuit, the Indigo Strapless Jumpsuit, the Cloud Rectangle Pullover, and the Sister Mules. More HERE.
