I’m gonna let you in on a little secret… Betsy & Iya. They are one of my favorite jewelry designers from right here in Portland and they have a new collection, Voyage. Pulling inspiration from three destinations, Portland, Scandinavia and Mexico, Voyage is strong, geometric and architectural; everything we’ve come to expect from their jewelry. But it’s also something else, colorful. The three destinations each have a color pallet that lends its self to the jewelry, adding just the right pop to give each piece a truly unique personality. I don’t have much color in my everyday jewelry so I can’t wait to pop down and pick a few pieces up this weekend. Check out the lookbook below and some key pieces from the collection.
Two friends who wanted to make jewelry and run their own schedules formed Betsy & Iya in 2008. They now have a fantastic little shop in NW Portland where they not only make the jewelry right there in the back they also carry other lifestyle goods. It’s pretty much a one-stop shop for any gifting needs, including that little reward for you. I hear there’s an expansion on the way and I couldn’t be happier! I wish these two all the luck in the world. I can’t go a day without someone commenting on my rings and I have Betsy & Iya to thank for that.
