Valentine's Day fun at Velouria

Stop by this Saturday February 12th from 3-8pm for our annual Valentine Trunk show featuring local jewelry designer Birna Sigurbjornsdottir. Who needs red roses when they just wilt and fade. I suggest this gorgeous silver sterling rose necklace that will last a lifetime.

Birna will be here with her semiprecious and silver pieces many one of a kind. We also love this floral ring with freshwater pearl center.

It is also Ballard Artwalk this Saturday and our featured local artist for February at Velouria, Michelle Auer, has a theme for her show called "Loves." She created several new paintings all depicting the different sides of love, the good, the bad, and the heartbreaking, all in her own whimsical style.

They come in three sizes, small, medium, and large and can be filled with moleskins. Leave a love note in the front and pass along to your sweetheart for Valentine's Day!

Love is in the Air

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, friends! We've got tons of new jewelry in from all of our favorite designers perfect for that gift for that special someone, or for yourself. Check out these vintage post earrings from Cara Lyndon. They would look great dressed down with a simple white tee and jeans, or dressed up with a slim cut black dress. Either way, we think they are great.
