Putting it together...

We're currently in the thick of planning our big move to Pioneer Square and wrestling with decisions about the interesting stuff - fixtures, floor plan, paint colors, lighting, carrying even more jewelry?! And the boring stuff I won't get into, because I'll either fall asleep or break into a cold sweat.

I heard an episode of Song Exploder, a new-ish podcast, the other day that took me back to the time when we made our first & biggest changes to the shop. We closed for a week (which felt crazy to do at the time!) in late September 2012 to paint the walls and (very high) ceilings and install new fixtures. It was a huge job, but we were fortunate to receive help from our very skilled and generous friends. I (Chika) felt particularly useless since I was caring for my newborn son at the time, so my contributions were limited to fetching pizza & coffee, and sewing curtains while everyone else GOT IT DONE.

And we were playing Nite Jewel on repeat. 

We love learning about how the clothing and goods we carry at Velouria are made. Any insight into a designer's process or views of their work space, we absorb eagerly and try to pass onto our customers. So I wanted to share this podcast I've been enjoying that does just that, but with music, and this episode in particular that reminds me that it all comes together eventually.

Check out this fun recap of a busy day in the life of this NYC jewelry designer. Lucky for us, we got to share the part of that day that included drinks, dinner, and dessert. We're not gonna lie, to meet Jené is to fall hard for her infectious energy, kindness, and drive. We can't wait until Wednesday!
