On a late November Sunday, there was something for just about everyone at Thread Show, whether you fancy rock star jewelry made from guitar picks, saucy lingere with skull face cut-outs or just an afternoon spent amongst designers, down tempo DJs, and fans of local fashion.
This holiday season, watch out for the Little Feather SF Winter 2011 Collection by San Francisco designer and Academy of Art alum Melinda Rodriguez, who combines an array of exotic materials (feathers, horns, sequins, bones, crystals, glass beads and even rope) to achieve a result that skillfully balances elegant with bold, fragile with strong.
Through Nov. 5, Cow Hollow boutique Conifer is offering 30 percent off its collection of jewelry by independent designers such as Wendy Nichol, Katie Diamond, Wendy Mink, Ishi and DLC Brooklyn.
Along with pre-Halloween costume drama, there’s one fashion-minded inevitability you can count on October in San Francisco: lots of lovely locally-made jewelry on display during ArtSpan Open Studios, an annual event inviting the public into the City’s many artists’ studios over a five-weekend stretch.
This week San Francisco is abuzz with boutique parties and trunk shows galore, but eco-fashion fans will want to take note of one show in particular: Jeffrey Levin Reclaimed Wood Jewelry at Cisco Home.
