Jeffrey Levin’s Lovely Furniture Remnant Jewelry at Cisco Home

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.

This Saturday at Hayes Valley’s Cisco Home, the Cape Town-born Levin will be showing an exclusive collection created using remnants from the store. Passionately perfecting his craft since starting out at the tender age of 12, his latest collection features designs made from an array of reclaimed wood adorned with delicate details.

Drawing inspiration from natural elements, Levin used remnants of Cisco Home’s furniture to handcraft each and everyone of his pieces. In addition to the unveiling of Levin’s reclaimed jewelry, there will also be pieces on offer from his Super Skinnys, Tinys, Wraps, Charm Strings, Dog Tags, Medallions and Initials collections as well.

Intrigued? See it for yourself: Jeffrey Levin Reclaimed Wood Jewelry at Cisco Home, Sept. 24, 12-4pm, 580 Hayes Street, San Francisco.

Sneak Peek: Saffron Rare Threads Summer ’11

The latest from local label Saffron Rare Threads continues designer Priya Saraswati’s emphasis on versatile, feminine silhouettes and clean, uncluttered designs in a summer collection of basics with a twist featuring a palette of solid hues.

Ready-to-wear separates in pink, royal blue and neutral black and white are, for the most part, up-for-anything pieces with office-to-party appeal. A streak of youthfulness appears in the subdued snake print of the slim-fitting Gayatri skirt and the twisted shoulder of the asymmetrical Zahira top, while the Tarala dress, Usha top, a boxy jacket and plain-front blazer keep the line grounded and can easily act as wardrobe staples.

Want to see more from this local designer’s latest? A viewing party for the Saffron Rare Threads Summer 2011 line takes place on Thursday at the Embarcadero Center store and includes wine by Alex Sotelo Cellars, a special street food vendor, a 7:30 p.m. fashion show and 15 percent off all night.
