New shipment in from Italian jewelry line IOSSELIANI! The talented duo behind this line have designed some seriously fun and dramatic pieces, but many are still very easy to integrate into your wardrobe. The perfect pieces to dress up jeans and a tee shirt – take a look:
I am completely enamored with this collar necklace below. I don’t think I have ever seen any jewelry piece in a store that is this fabulous. It is spectacular!
IOSSELIANI’s main line and Puro IOSSELIANI both feature vintage silhouettes in exciting and daring ways. Jewelry should be engaging and interesting!
We are back from NYC (barely) and gearing up for Valentine’s Day! Spring merchandise keeps rolling in. Today Dustin put out Michael Spirito and Pamela Love is being unpacked. Posts on those lines to come!
Hitchcock Madrona customers are likely familiar with Iosselliani’s dramatic and fun fashion jewelry pieces. The company is expanding with their new line Puro, which takes Iosselliani in a different direction. Puro is a line of fine jewelry that is made in the Italian jewelry tradition. It features delicate sterling silver and gold-plated pieces adorned with semi-precious and precious stones, including garnets and sapphires. Puro necklaces can be easily layered and Puro rings are intended to be stacked. However, even though these pieces are more subtle than those from Iosselliani’s main line they never-the-less have a definite flair to them that reflects the creative vision of Iosselliani’s founders and designers, Paolo Giacomelli and Roberta Paolucci. Easy to integrate into any jewelry collection, Puro offers a fresh and innovative take on the fine jewelry genre. We are sure that you too will be enamored with Puro jewelry.
We have many more styles by Puro currently available. We also received a large shipment from Iosselliani – blog post on that coming soon!
I am trying to inspire the sunshine with my clothing choices. But, it is still pretty gloomy (but, yeah, no snow!) in Seattle. Maybe that is why I look like I am angry in this photo?

We just got a brand new assortment of items from Surplus. They are tribal, industrial, whimsical and artsy. All pieces are made from recycled bits and bobs. We never know what Harriet will come up with next and it is always a treat seeing a new collection. All of these pieces would be amazing paired with a draped white silk blouse.
Harriet describes the layered piece to the left as “very Santa Fe” and we agree. The little iron heart details on this necklace are the best part, in my opinion.
She was also inspired by childhood games such as tic-tac-toe. Can you see why?
As always, quantities are limited and pieces are one-of-kind. Come visit if you are a fan of Surplus.
Spring and summer are on their way (we hope!). How perfect are these beaded bracelets by Southern California designer Julie Rofman? Rofman, inspired by traditional Navajo design and the digital world of pixels, handmade these stunners from Japanese glass seed beads (ordered from one family in Japan). These flew out of the store for gifts this holiday season – our next order is en route. Check with us next week! Prices range from $78 – $245.
Artist – Debra Baxter
Materials – Sterling Silver, Quartz Crystal (one-of-a-kind)
Price – $480
This bracelet found a home over the holidays but it is one of my favorite items that I have ever had in the store. I had to share it on the blog. It is strangely wearable (i wore it around the store for a few days)! If you are interested we can have one commissioned just for you. Love this piece.
We are happy to finally release a hitchcock original design that we have been working on for almost a year! The hitchcock Madrona ID Bracelet was inspired by a 1960’s men’s ID bracelet that Dustin discovered on one of his buying trips through the American West. It can be worn by men and women – it is solid sterling silver. The length is customized for the wearer and you can leave it bright silver or oxidize it (as pictured). It looks so amazing layered with other hitchcock bracelets. Dustin is wearing it with his Copper & Leather Bracelet (hitchcock Jewelry) and his Petrus Bracelet (Knight&Hammer). It retails for $480.
