.silvercocoon. trunk show

silvercocoon trunk show
yesterday after work i stopped at the .silvercocoon. trunk show preview party. i’m a big fan of .silvercocoon. jewelry, and its designer tia salmela keobounpheng is so sweet and such a joy! her most recent project is a collaboration on a catalog/photography book with local photographer paige dewees. there was a copy of the catalog at the show, and it really is more than just a catalog: it’s a wonderful representation of real women, photographed in real environments, wearing amazing jewelry. tia explains it so much better on her blog… and i think it’s going to be added to my library.

me with a new silvercocoon necklace

being that yesterday was my 9 week anniversary as a non-smoker, i treated myself to a .silvercocoon. bunch necklace. it matches my hollow_jumbo earrings, which i bought this spring.

the actual trunk show is this saturday, september 12, from 11 to 5, at danish teak classics in the northrup king building. go! and if you can’t go, there are goods in her etsy shop (and click around the links in this post, there’s so much to see).

and i can’t resist showing you this chair that i drooled over at the party:

chair at danish teak classics

it’s totally out of my price range, but oh-so-fabulous.

happy weekend!

    9 weeks! congratulations… you are there…. :) I read once that you get relapses at 6 weeks, 6 months, 6 years….like that, why 6? dunno… maybe it was just to make me feel that we can all be “weak” and fall back!
    It’s so nice that there are so many artsy things going on around you! Love the earrings and the necklace!what material is that?
