The 10 Essentials: #9 The Gold Bangle

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

The Hitchcock Gold Bangle Cuff.  A true essential!  Picture Grace Kelly dressed all in white, boarding a yacht in the South of France with no other jewelry other than one simple gold bangle. So pretty and simple on it’s own, sweet when paired, down-right fierce when stacked all the way to your elbow!

This one comes in two sizes – wide or thin. Why not one of each?!

Pile them high!

The Gold Bangle is also a fun way to add contrasting metal to your current bracelet situation. This Hitchcock Essential makes the perfect holiday gift – of course you could keep one or two for yourself. We promise not to tell!

The 10 Essentials: #5 The “Second Skin” Necklace

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

We all have that one necklace that never comes off. You wear it to the gym, to bed, in the shower, and if you do take it off you feel like something is missing. You just don’t feel like yourself without it. Mine is my diamond dot. Since I got it years ago I have only taken it off a few times and kinda regretted it when I did. The Hitchcock Madrona Diamond Dot really is the quintessential second skin piece. It is small enough that you forget your wearing it but, has enough sparkle and shine that everyone else will know it’s there.

The Diamond Dot, 18K gold on an oxidized silver chain. You’ll never take it off!

It layers beautifully with our other favorite second skin necklace, the Hitchcock Madrona Shield. Our shield represents strength and protection, and who doesn’t need a little more of both these days. The shield itself is brushed 18K gold set with a diamond. Both necklaces are available with white or black diamonds.

WHITE/SPACE Trunk Show: Saturday, Oct. 22nd 12 – 5 pm

Posted by & filed under Trunk Show, White/Space.

Last year, we held our first trunk show for local artist:  WHITE/SPACE.  It was such an instant hit, it’s time to do it again.

This time around, the designer was inspired by Italian mid-century modern art and architecture.
Designs are simple with clean lines in solid gold, diamonds and pearls, but the price points aren’t intimidating.

Saturday, October 22nd
12 – 5 pm

Outfit of The Day: Pumpkin Spice And Layers

Posted by & filed under Loren Stewart, MOSCOT, Selin Kent, Uncategorized, Xenia Mara, Yestadt Millinery.

Fall is here! And this October baby could not be happier. Everything good comes back as soon as the leaves start turning: fall tv shows, grandpa sweaters, Pumpkin Spice (although I’m not convinced that is actually a good thing) and LAYERING! Never one to shy away from layering in any form, I have been known to layer sweaters on sweaters, with a jacket on top… or in this case a sweater, on a dress…on jeans? Why not! It’s Fall, anything goes!

IMG_7413

I chose to go heavy on the clothing layers, so for my jewelry simple statements felt perfectly appropriate. Opting for our Hitchcock Madrona XL Gold Bars to pair with my constant companion: Catbird’s Chained To My Heart stud. Topped off with Moscot’s classic Lemtosh and Yestadt’s Nomad hat (it’s packable!) for some timeless, masculine touches.

IMG_7384 IMG_7429

Xenia Mara chains from her newest collection, and the delicate BOMB necklace by Faris were the perfect combination. They have opposing lengths and scale that seem mismatched but work so well together! And a total departure from my everyday, heavily layered look.

IMG_7393 IMG_7426

Again, keeping it delicate and simple on my fingers, with a cool statement stack by Selin Kent on my right hand to throw things off just a little bit. A curveball that is somehow still perfectly within the lines. Now, if you’ll excuse me I’m off to protest the manufacturing of pumpkin spice chapstick. But not before throwing on another sweater. Stay layered!

 

XOXO,

Millie

Selin Kent is our newest fine jewelry artist at Hitchcock Madrona. We love the clean lines, elegant geometrical shapes, and unique stacking options that come along with these beautiful pieces. Each piece is handcrafted in New York out of responsibly sourced 14k golds and precious stones. Kent has always been inspired by the architecture from her time in Vienna, New York, Istanbul, and Paris. These are timelessly modern pieces with just enough edgy sophistication to get our hearts racing!

Outfit of the Day: Fascinating in a Fascinator

Posted by & filed under OOTD.

After watching the Diana Vreeland documentary “The Eye has to Travel” I became obsessed with horn necklaces of all shapes and sizes. She is consistently wearing a large vintage (I think) horn necklace throughout the movie. A few actually, if memory serves me, one gold and one white??? Maybe?? Have you seen it? Diana sourced her jewelry and interiors during exotic photo shoots for Bazaar magazine. Me too… but not quite Morroco or Russia (like Diana)… more like Monroe and Redmond (Seattle natives raise yo hand!). But, travel is travel (so what if I am “traveling” an hour away from Seattle).
IMG_4933

After watching said documentary I thought about the one person that I knew who could make all my horn necklace dreams come true. None other than Surplus designer Harriet MacNamara, a Seattle jewelry line that excites, inspires and scares us (a little). Harriet is actually very “Vreeland”. She has an amazing eye, has traveled and collected her entire life, and the one liners! Harriet can turn your world view on its head just by walking in the door. Me: “Is your t-shirt on inside out and backwards?!?!?” Harriet: “Yes, honey”. Me: “Awesome. I am so doing that!”

IMG_4935

Resin Horn Necklace by Surplus jewelry (she mixed brown pearls with black chain), Gold Loop Bib by Dannijo (first layer). This Dannijo necklace is amazing! It is sooooo layerable. I also have on a triangle crystal necklace that I got as a gift (I think it’s Stella & Dot – shhhh don’t tell) and a double bronze chain froooooom a store in the mall (ooops! Again!).

IMG_4941

A closer look….

Ear cuff by Eddie Borgo.

One of my favorite quotes of Vreeland’s is: “A little bad taste is like a nice splash of paprika.We all need a splash of bad tasteNo taste is what I’m against.” That sums up what I live for when I get up and get dressed. I might not wear what EVERYONE likes but at least I am not boring, right?
