You would think that since I make jewelry for a living, shopping for jewelry would be a bit of a bus mans holiday for me? Not at all, I LOVE buying and shopping for jewelry and that is one of about a million reasons I can’t wait for Stitch.
Every fall 3 of my friends and I produce a fashion show and craft bazaar in Austin called Stitch. This year is our 5 year anniversary show and there are over 100 vendors, including oodles of jewelry! The show is Saturday Nov 10th at the Austin Convention Center, Doors open to the public at 4pm. If you are a jewelry person like me you just better hope and pray that I have not already beat you to all the good stuff. Let me give you a rundown of some of our jewelry designers who are coming in from around the country.
On the ladies of cOcO Couture look out for one of Austin’s most amazing jewelry designers I RoK Gems. No website, so you have to see these baubles in person either on the runway at Stitch or in booth #419.
Do a little online shopping with some of our other jewelry vendors….
