My fantastically chic friend from college, Ms. Elisabeth Carr, is writing a fashion blog, mission:closet, and turned me onto some great jewelry finds lately, in particular Molly M Designs and a variety of jewelers from Renegade Handmade. This got me thinking about another college friend of mine, Irene Woods, and the beautiful jewelry she’s making at Crow’s Catch (I have several of her pieces from nearly six years ago, and they are still in beautiful shape and haven’t needed any repairs or replacement!). Then last week at the Galleria in downtown Mpls, we ran into Tia from Silver Cocoon and her pieces, which are as beautiful in person as they are shown on her website. I especially love the wood pieces, particularly the triple layered wood necklace. If you’re thinking about jewelry for a family member, hopefully this turns you onto some fabulous designers. And don’t forget to visit mission:closet everyday for new fashion finds. Happy hunting!
