Our network partner, Clothes Pin, recently gave a little shout to jewelry designer Alisha Louise. Our bloggers love jewelry and, quite admirably, they also love scouting out independent designers from places other than New York. Alisha Louise does not sell her jewelry here, that is, she is not 'indie' in the sense that everyone from Houston to Canal and Bedford to Manhattan Ave is wearing her designs. She is from, well, Seattle and her jewelry is really gorgeous. Summer jewelry is a tricky thing, with sweat and breezy outfits, it sometimes just doesn't seem worth the effort, but when we read Clothes Pin's post, we realized these branch-like pieces are quite perfect for Summer. Props to our bloggers, most notably Clothes Pin, for keeping us in the loop with the truly indie designers.
