Betsy & Iya: a NW Jewelry Shop

You know those days when your laundry piles up like Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout Would Not Take the Garbage Out? (Please tell me you get the Shel Silverstein ref). That means a trip to ye old laundromat and mine of choice is The Missing Sock on NW Thurman because I figure my chances of getting contact scabies are less than average in Nob Hill.
While waiting for the rinse cycle to finish spinning, I wandered down to this twee little jewelry shop located at 2403 NW Thurman St.
Rope-cuff bracelets, hand-hammered rings, necklaces and earrings made of tarnished brass or painted bronze, etched and oxidized, create gorgeous one-of-a-kind pieces. I practically had kittens. It's one of those places where you just keep pointing to trinkets, saying to no one in particular, "I want thaaat. And thaaat. Oh! And thaat."

  1. I admire what you have done here. I like the part where you say you are doing this to give back but I would assume by all the comments that this is working for you as well.
