Happy Independents Week! It’s time to kick summer into full gear and what better way to do this than by picking out your perfect summer standby with two independent creatives: Alx&Co. and 52 Thursdays! Were holding a Summer Jewelry Fete — complete with spritzers galore — and you’re invited to shop our curated summer selection of crafted fine jewelry at our sweet little party pop-up at The Seedling Collective.
If you’re not familiar with Sarah Phillips, here’s your opportunity to get to know half of the creative mind behind 52 Thursdays (Sarah’s social media consulting firm) and 100 percent of the creative force behind The Scout Guide Alexandria for the last year. Recently, Sarah and her business partner Michelle launched the breeziest little on-trend fine jewelry capsule featuring shells, beads, and freshwater pearls.
They’re offering a limited selection in finer materials like 14k gold and we’re excited to feature this collection alongside our own lines of dainty, wearable fine jewelry. I am personally curating a selection of sweet studs, bracelets, and charms that will pair perfectly with Sarah’s uber cool pieces and, together, they’re sure to carry you through this next heat wave all the way through to sweater season. This is the perfect opportunity to mix, match, layer, and build your own little summer jewelry wardrobe.
So, mark your calendars for Thursday, July 11th (next Thursday!) to stop by The Seedling Collective at 121 South Royal Street (the pink door). The party runs from 6:30-8:30pm, and we’ll feature a fun selection of summer-y spritzers to keep you cool and refreshed — because it’s hot and you need to stay hydrated, right? 😉
Alexandria & Company is an Old Town-based workshop and design studio specializing in creating and restoring fine jewelry and silver hollowware. They are the in-the-know jewelers of Alexandria and have been serving clients out of their small workshop for decades. Tucked in their historic building on South Royal Street, the team at Alx&Co. brings a personalized, modern approach to their craft – this is not your average stodgy jeweler or antique shop. Visit them during their walk-in hours or online to view their collection of handmade fine jewelry or to drop off a repair project; or, if you’re feeling creative, make an appointment to talk about that custom design project you’ve been imagining.
