You know there's a lot of independent jewelry makers out there in the world. And people want to sell it to me all the time at Passionflower. And I say no a lot. There's a lot of reasons jewelry doesn't work for the store. Sometimes it seems too much like something we already have and sometimes it's just wrong for us and sometimes the price point is just way too high and sometimes I've spent all my allocated dollars and sometimes I'm just too busy to give it the time it deserves. And then, every now and then, there's a line that really stands out. Hasn't happened in a while until Laurel said to me, "You might want to check out my friend Rachel Dean's jewelry. She lives in Bend and I think it would be a good fit for us." "Um, yes OK, I will". And then Rachel sent me a lot of photos (all priced) and I could tell, not only did she have something original and fabulous to sell, she also had it together as a business person. And I need both those things to make it work here at Passionflower. So I said YES Please!
And Rachel came over from Bend and we picked a really fun selection. And now she's a house staple. Her work definitely has a relaxed, boho vibe but add good design and color sense and it really sings. It's mostly brass, beadwork, and gemstones but she adds thread and leather sometimes too. And since Rachel seems like the energizer bunny when it comes to production, we thought it would be really fun to have a trunk show so you can see the huge, vast array of her work. Please join us Thursday November 20th. We're open until 7 and will be serving a little bubbly and playing some lovely tunes.
Or should partying on a Thursday evening prove too much for you, there's always our online jewelry store!
