It seems to be the summer of fabulous new jewelry designers at Barefoot Contessa – there are so many great designers coming in to the stores right now it’s hard to keep up! So far we have introduced you to type B and social experiment, and we are now excited to showcase one of the newest jewelry designers to the store, AstridLily!
A Los Angeles favourite, AstridLily is a free-spirited and whimsical, yet elegant, line of jewelry hand-crafted by Vancouver designer Tara Nish. We actually discovered AstridLily and it’s lovely creator this past May during our stint the Got Craft? show, and knew immediately that it would be a perfect fit for Barefoot Contessa. Each piece uses only the finest metals, precious and semi-precious gemstones, and every stone is individually hand-wrapped with wire. It’s difficult to express just how gorgeous and unique each piece is with words alone, so please take a look at all the pictures below to get a better idea about why we love AstridLily so much…
