The 10 Essentials #7 – The Cocktail Ring

Posted by & filed under Iosselliani, Mariella Pilato, Uncategorized.

I’m not certain where exactly the name comes from, but you just can’t deny that sipping a perfect cocktail is a fabulous way to show off your stunning Cocktail Ring. The way that huge stone catches the light as you raise your champagne flute, magical! No wonder it’s our Essential #7. Here at Hitchcock Madrona we are know far and wide for our signature Druzy Ring, an edgy take on the classic Cocktail Ring.  The gold version is especially on point for the holiday season.

Canyon Agate AG1248-S

These gorgeous scarves from Weston Earth Images are totally giving us life. Actually, the phrase “giving us life” is really giving us life but the scarves are pretty damn good too (and p.s. I did give someone life so I know what that phrase ACTUALLY means, and it is no small potatoes, my friend). Anyway, the scarves! They are the most beautiful silk and linen fabrics, with vivid gemstone prints. They are conceptually genius and the execution is flawless.

Each of these beautiful prints is an actual (extremely closeup) photograph of a mineral, stone, or fossil. Richard Weston, the Creative Director of Weston Earth Images, has harnessed the advancements of digital technology and created something so special, and wearable! We feel lucky to be able to offer these scarves (pieces of art) at Hitchcock Madrona.

As you can see, Weston captures the minute details in each gemstone. These scarves are mind blowing in that they are direct reproductions of objects found in nature.

Satin silk scarf: Elestial Quartz.

We have these scarves in linen and silk. Think of these as more than just scarves: The silk could be draped into a skirt, and the linen would make for a fantastic beach coverup!

Satin silk scarf: Mookaite Jasper.

“I’m sorry, but when it comes to creativity man comes a poor second to nature, and, in fact, a lot of human creativity is drawn from – some would say copied from, others inspired by – nature.” – Richard Weston

Touché, Mr. Weston, touché.

Unearthen designs are always the perfect mix of edgy and luxe.

These pieces are one-of-a-kind due to each unique crystal formation. Perfect worn alone or layered – this style really lends beautifully to layering (we love it peeking through a Xenia Mara goddess necklace and a million other ways of course!).

Cast and pyrite versions.

As you can see, we have a wide selection of bullet necklaces in right now. These beauties tend to fly out of the store so visit soon for the most options!

Outfit of the Day: Kate in Springtime Pearls

Posted by & filed under Lulu Frost, OOTD, Uncategorized, Xenia Mara.

Pearls are hitting Spring 2014 in a BIG way. I’ve seen them absolutely everywhere: encrusting sunglasses and shoes, adorning blazers, and cheekily embellishing hot pants. As new jewelry collections start to arrive at Hitchcock Madrona it’s obvious that pearls are IT this year. From Wouters & Hendrix to minimalist master Loren Stewart, everyone seems to have incorporated pearls into their collection.

I haven’t always been a pearl girl, but after years of Erica’s tutelage I’ve come a long way. Call me old fashioned, but I like my pearls best on my jewelry (I can’t quite imagine sitting down in pearl bedazzled hot pants, ouch!). That being said I always try to find a way to toughen them up. Enter: the pearl & leather necklace by we like to lounge. Yes, I may be partial (it IS my design!) but, nonetheless it is a solution to my search for edgy pearls.

Just In: Unearthen

Posted by & filed under Just In, Uncategorized.

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.
