ASHLEY ALVES COLLECTION | BOLSA VERDE
Ashley Alves Collection is a green luxury brand on a mission to inspire change. Its premier collection, Bolsa Verde, defines that mission one bag at a time. Handcrafted from vintage fabrics and environmentally sustainable materials from around the world, each bag in the Bolsa Verde collection is a work of art with a unique story.
SET & STONES
Set & Stones is a handmade jewelry brand based in San Diego, CA. Owner & designer Sarah Tullgren was originally inspired by an old box full of her grandma’s costume jewelry when she was a teenager. She began working at local bead stores to learn the art of jewelry design and quickly discovered her true passion. Set & Stones launched in 2016 and can be found in retailers across the states. The collection features high quality materials including 14k gold fill, sterling silver, semi-precious stones and Swarovski crystals. From dainty designs (for the simple gal who sometimes forgets to take off her jewelry - guilty!) to designs that make a bold statement, the pieces are thoughtfully crafted to be worn solo or stacked and layered, allowing you to create your own individual look.
THE F WORD GIFT SHOP
The F Word Gift Shop is a women-owned and operated feminist company dedicated to promoting the discussions surrounding the intersectional feminist movement. All of our products are responsibly sourced, made in the USA, and 15% of every sale goes to fund Planned Parenthood.
A new collection of handmade jewelry, accessories, and leather bags from designer Erik Maes. Erik was first exposed to art metals while studying film at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, since then he worked to cultivate his own vision within jewelry design by pushing the processes and developing a unique relationship with the materials themselves. Cast from sculpted wax, carved into cuttlebone, or made from deconstructed found objects... the innovation, style, and expert craftsmanship is evident in each piece. The jewelry, and now leather goods too, must be held and worn to be fully appreciated.
Ukes is making sunglass straps cool for the first time. The eyewear retainer industry has been stale for the last 20 years, and Ukes is finally breathing life back into it. By staying on top of trends and pop-culture, Ukes is able to consistently launch popular designs that attract both men and women. Perfect for any outdoor adventure, Ukes ensures you hold on to your sunglasses and look good doing it.
MIND'S EYE DESIGN
Mind's Eye Design is an independent jewelry company based in and inspired by the beauty of Northern California. Tara Brown is the woman behind the designs. She has been making jewelry since 1989, when a high school art teacher introduced her to lost wax casting and soldering. She studied fine art and art history and has the artists equivalent to a green thumb. She uses her knack for design for everything from Easter egg decoration to festive flag making. Her years of making jewelry and just generally making ordinary objects beautiful have resulted in the creation of Mind's Eye Design: a jewelry company dedicated to sourcing the majority of materials used from U.S. companies and working with other small, independent manufactures.
NEOCLASSICS is a Los Angeles based brand featuring original message driven artworks, cultivating conscious minds. Unique, balanced, hand drawn graphics inspired by classic art, sacred geometry and positive vibes. In a world where media smothers our every thought with stereotypes and ideals, we urge you to maintain individuality. We design for seekers, celebrate free thinkers and empower conscious minds.
Océanne is a line of minimalist modern jewelry by French/American designer Anne Harrill. Made for your everyday, each piece is designed with a focus on craftsmanship, comfort and functional beauty. Geometric and minimalistic metalworking, minerals, stones and natural fibers and conversational phrases are elements in our designs. With great attention to detail, each piece is made by hand using traditional techniques such as forging, stamping, filing, torching and assembling vintage and curated materials.
LilahV has an exclusive supply of 1920's glass beads from a Bauhaus studio in Germany. During WWII the studio was bombed, 20 years later they found these beads in the rubble. Because they cannot be reproduced the beads are highly prized and rare. The designer, Amanda Uber, creates jewelry pieces with Bauhaus, Minimalism, Pop Art and Cubism design as inspiration.
NOORNOIR jewelry is a way to create a physical representation of intangible moments. The way the summer sun feels on the sand or the smell of jasmine flowers blooming in the evening. Always gold, always semi-precious stones and crystals, and always feminine. Handcrafted in Los Angeles, each piece contains emotions, feelings, memories that take on new life when worn.
