Just In: Unearthen

We recently received a new shipment of jewelry from Unearthen. One of the most distinctive lines we carry here at Hitchcock Madrona, Unearthen was founded by Gia Bahm. She creates necklaces, rings, and bracelets that prominently feature crystals. Each of the crystals she chooses for her designs have specific properties that are meant to promote certain health benefits for their wearers. Additionally, it is Bahm’s intent when designing that the crystal she uses should appeal uniquely to its wearer, and that there should be an inherent property in the crystal which attracts its eventual owner. The pieces we currently have in stock are all quartz crystal, which is purported to have general healing properties and is thought to be a powerful stone.

These pieces are edgy, playful, and fun! The crystals are incorporated into designs that showcase their natural, organic shapes to the fullest. While they can be worn alone as statement pieces, Unearthen designs can be easily layered and many of necklaces would work really well as  “second skin jewelry” to be worn every day.

Evening Wear

I broke out this green silky pajama shirt today for the first time.  I purchased this as part of a set (I can’t wait to wear the pants with a simple white tank top!) in India when we were there in January.  I think it is actually a men’s pajama set but not totally sure. Oh well!

Dustin is back from Hawaii (yeah!) so we had fun this morning accessorizing my bright green and yellow shirt with tons o’jewels!

Necklaces (top to bottom):

Woven Gold Lame and Base Metal Necklace, Venessa Arizaga

Peach Sunstone and Copper Layers Necklace, Xenia Mara (this is such a wardrobe staple!)

Polished Raw Citrine Chunks, hitchcock Madrona

Speaking of India!  While we were buying gemstones for our designs in India, Dustin and I came upon this amazing strand of Citrine.  We purchased it from a stone supplier that has very random but super high-quality stones.  When we visit we sit down and say, “only show us what YOU think is the most special and of the highest quality in your stock.”  He has an infectious passion for unique stones (the best of the best).  With excitement he proceeds to unveil countless jaw-dropping strands of gemstones.  If we could only buy them all!

This strand is special for a couple reasons: the quality of stone (over 1,000 carats! aka ridiculous), cut and perfect graduation, and clarity/extraordinary color.  We had to keep them together (of course) and make one fabulous necklace.  It is hand knotted with a sterling silver clasp.  Stunning!
