The latest installment of Indie Mart drew local designers, artists, makers and their fans to Potrero flats for a sunny afternoon of independent shopping, outdoor strolling and, of course, drinking. We snapped shots of vendors manning booths stocked with everything from fused glass jewelry to vintage finds and mesh pendants. Read on to scope the pics.
Our very-visual, (almost) chatter-free snap judgment of the day: a romantic statement necklace with turquoise blue beads and a delicate fabric flower, $22.00, handmade and crafted by San Francisco’s Snobish Design, a local maker of affordable modern, bridal and custom accessories capable of complementing a summer dress anywhere from a backyard BBQ to a night out with that special someone.
San Francisco jewelry designer Vanessa Gade‘s new Forme Collection launched over the weekend at L.A.’s Dwell on Design exhibition. Ushering in more of Gade’s streamlined, architectural approach to jewelry, the new pieces diverge from her past work with perfect circles and rectangles to focus on irregular geometric shapes in sterling silver, oxidized silver and 14K gold.
We’re big fans of locally-made jewelry that packs a unique flavor, so you can imagine we were taken with the adornments of San Francisco designer Megan Stacy and her Salty Fox line. Using metals, recycled leather and chains, the former Lela Rose intern aims to make necklaces, earrings and bracelets with sophisticated edge and affordable prices.
Our very-visual, (almost) chatter-free snap judgment of the day: an alternative to the usually-bulky look of two-finger rings awaits in the Delicate Silver Double Finger Ring, $45, made of two one-millimeter silver bands soldered together and hand-hammered by San Francisco jewelry label Friedasophie.
