    I have recently received compelling stories from customers as to why they have chosen our concrete bands to symbolically represent their marriage. It has me thinking that it might be beneficial if I share some information about concrete.

    Perhaps the earliest known occurrence of cement was twelve million years ago (according to Wikipedia). It is amazing to think that a material that was discovered millions of years ago is still being used today, and not to mention innovatively! ie. jewelry!

    Concrete is a sustainable and affordable resource which is made up of an aggregate, cement and water. When you think of the definition of aggregate it is described as, “a whole formed by combining several typically disparate elements.” Sounds a lot like marriage, doesn’t it?

    Concrete only gets stronger and better over time. It takes many years for concrete to reach its true strength. It also will change over time with daily wear to reflect your tendencies. Concrete is strong enough to survive many disasters, such as fires, earthquakes and storms. Also sounds a little like marriage. We all have our ups and downs and know that we can make it through.

    So what have customers said about why they bought concrete rings?
    One customer told us, “Our 17th Anniversary wedding bands made of concrete and steel. Strong and unique, like the love we have for each other. A friend of mine told me the other day that we were the only couple he could ever imagine trading in their gold and diamond wedding bands for concrete and steel.”

    And another, "It’s just because we thought they looked cool, they were affordable and something more snazzy than a simple gold band. I’ll proudly wear it knowing just how well it represents the fabric of what we have.”

    There you have it! If you are looking for something to represent the growing strength in your relationship, the combining of many elements to make one, that ever lasting union, and something that will weather the hard times, then concrete is a perfect choice!

  • February, Valentine's Day, & some gifts to get you through them

    796d8f9548bca212808d25a3ec40b798

    Happy February! It's a funny month; short, winter-y, cold. The first day of February always makes me think of one of my favorite quotes from Tom Robbins:

    "February is pitiless, and it is boring. That parade of red numerals on its page adds up to zero: birthday of politicians, a holiday reserved for rodents; what kind of celebrations are those? The only bubble in the flat champagne of February is Valentine's Day. It was no accident that our ancestors pinned Valentine's Day on February's shirt: he or she lucky enough to have a lover in frigid, antsy February has cause for celebration, indeed."

    In case you want to treat a loved one, a friend, a partner or yourself (absolutely no judgements here; it all counts as a celebration!) to help get through February's slow 28 days, we have some lovely presents for any budget.

    Firstly, the portable Marshall speakers above are *amazing*. Charge it for up to 20 hours of (really impressive) sound. Bluetooth enabled, or directly plug in your device. These guys were super popular during the holidays, and we just got them back in stock. A lovely companion for curling up on the couch and listening to your favorite albums or catching up on podcasts.

    Love red wine? Love salt? Portland-based Jacobsen Salt Co. infuses fragrant Willamette Valley Pinot Noir with their Oregon flake salt. Wonderful finishing salt on pasta, steak, fish, roasted mushrooms, or anything you might enjoy with a glass of Pinot Noir. The addition of Jacobsen Salt to any dish simply makes it better - a small luxury that you probably deserve.

    We're also restocked with jewelry from Julia Turner, our latest jewelry crush from San Francisco. Beautiful colors and thoughtful materials are paired together to create light, visually striking work. Fair warning: Julia Turner jewelry can actually cause you to look forward to getting up and getting dressed in the morning, which, let's face it, can be a real struggle this time of year.

    Herbivore_CocoRose_bodyscrub

    And Herbivore Botanicals! Talk about a staff favorite. These products are a perfect addition to February. Moisturizing, soothing, cleansing, and lightly fragrant - all of their products are naturally luxurious. Made in Seattle, with all natural ingredients.

    Hope this helps!

    The heyday of the Hobo is still very much alive, and we are over the moon for their new summer line of handbags and wallets. The colors are absolutely perfect for the season, and these jewel tones will transition well into the latter part of the year.

  • Meet the Makers: Shelli Markee and re-Ply Furniture

    Thursday night September 11 we will host two makers from very different disciplines. Shelli Markee, the artist whose wire birds soar up the walls at Click!, will flesh out the space with more flora and fauna sculptures in wire. Steve Lawler, a Tacoma woodworker whose reclaimed furniture line is one of the newest additions to the Click! showroom floor, will also be on hand to talk about his solid goods.

    Shelli's wire works are three-dimensional line drawings, capturing the essence of their subject without color or shading. They are instantly recognizable despite their minimalism. The inspiration she finds in the natural world is comes through in the familiarity of her creations.

    Joining Shelli at Click! will be Steve Lawler of rePly Furniture. Steve uses remnant pieces from cabinet shops, layered and pressed to create modern, beautiful, and comfortable chairs, benches, and tables. Steve will be on hand to talk about his process and inspiration, and will be bringing more pieces than we normally have stocked. "Making plywood beautiful", indeed!

  • Steel Toe Jewelry

    This Thursday's Art Walk captures two artists in the midst of their evolutions: jeweler Frances Smersh is painting, and blacksmith Erica Gordon is making jewelry.

    You know Erica Gordon from her belt buckles: forged, welded, and fabricated in her Georgetown studio. She's taken her same bold aesthetic and scaled it down to jewelry: wearable, sexy, and strong.

    Steel-Neck-1

     

    Our own Frances Smersh continues to explore shapes and forms, not in metal but acrylic and mixed media. Think of it as jewelry for your walls.

    Cast of Characters

    Don't worry, we'll still have plenty of Frances's jewelry and Erica's belt buckles!

    West Seattle Art Walk is every second Thursday from 6pm to 9pm. View the walking map here.

  • New jewelry, trunk show, SALE!

    Sarah Loertscher has been ripping up the jewelry and fashion world with her daring, geometric forms: supersized, can't-miss pieces and subtle, wear-it-everyday faceted metals. This Saturday, Thanksgiving weekend, Sarah will be introducing two new lines -- Ridgeline and Parallels -- during a special event at Click!. Our entire collection of Sarah Loertscher Jewelry will be discounted 20% for Saturday only.

    Ridgeline is Sarah's exploration of the simpler side of jewelry: bold and modern, yet simple and easy to live in. Check out the "plateau" on these rings:

    Architectural Rings

    With the Parallels collection, Sarah takes the outline of a form and repeats it. The result is jewelry that moves and changes as you wear it.
