Monica and I recently took a day trip to San Francisco. It ended up being such a beautiful day to be in the city gathering finds for the shop.
We ordered the new Prairie Underground Holiday collection with its rich colors for the shop this winter.
After having a yummy lunch in Union Square we continued on to meet with the sales rep for Virgin Saints and Angels. This Jewelry is going to drive our customers crazy because it is so beautiful. The designated place to meet her was in the grand lobby of the St. Francis hotel. Having never met previously, Monica and I were unsure how we would recognize her, but of course we recognized her right away by all of the jewelry she had on. She is a lovely lady. We enjoyed our time with her, and I loved her tattoo.
After that, we found a new line of jewelry for our shop that is designed right here in Aptos. Warmth Company will be carrying April Martin Designs Earthy Luxe collection. Her jewelry has a casual elegance, mixing the classic metals and faceted gems with the more rustic elements such as bamboo and hand selected pearls. My favorites are her leather earrings. Kind of a fun different take on the feather earrings that are so popular.
