Still searching for gifts this Valentine’s Day? Or just want to treat yourself? This Thursday and Friday, February 13-14, By George has planned trunk shows featuring some of the things we love so that you’re sure to find something special.
Jessica Rusch is dear to our hearts and part of the By George family—she was a long-time sales associate at our Flagship location. We’re so happy to have her back with us to launch her first jewelry collection! Her bracelet line featuring artisan trade beads balances bold color with muted pastels and mixes metals with uncommon shapes. Each bracelet is one-of-a-kind and handmade right here in Austin.
Cambria Handmade Leather Goods
You can see the labor of love that goes into each and every hand-cut and hand-sewn piece made by Cambria Harkey, which can take up to 15 hours to make.
Another Austin designer we’ve carried for more than two years at our Men’s and SoCo stores, Cambria’s pieces are inspired by her childhood summers in New Mexico where she became attached to her saddle bags after riding horses from dawn until sunset every day. The trunk show will feature an expanded offering of men’s and women’s pieces along with classic Cambria pieces in unique colors and new leathers. A By George exclusive is a custom clutch recently designed for Emma Thompson for the red carpet.
Men’s + Flagship
The Dowry is new line of fine jewelry by Courtney Jacobs Leibman with which we have recently fallen in love. It’s an eclectic mix of effortlessly cool products: modern, timeless and personalized. The trunk show will feature an expanded selection of all her pieces and Courtney will offer custom, on-site engraving on her signature yellow, white and rose gold bar necklaces during the two-day event. Just in time for gift giving!
Who doesn’t love cupcakes? It’s easy to stop by this popular food trailer when you’re at our South Congress location, but for all of you Flagship-frequenters, you can purchase some of their top-selling cupcake flavors in a six-pack box.
11am-until sold out
After years of making jewelry for herself and friends as a hobby, designer Rebecca Lankford decided to take the plunge and officially start her own business in 1993. After a local art gallery picked up her first collection, her line has grown and is now sold nationwide (as well as in Europe, Japan and Mexico) and we’re thrilled to carry her gorgeous pieces.
When it comes to holiday shopping, crossing everyone off your list can be a daunting task. Rebecca gives us her top jewelry picks to help you find the perfect piece for the women in your life.
Perfect Gifts for Sister or Daughter
Pave “XO” necklaces and studs. Show some love this holiday with some pieces from our “XO” collection. Whether you choose the 14k gold version , with 9 diamonds set into each letter, the mixed metal version, or the mismatched “XO” studs with a gold “X” and diamond set “O” you can’t disappoint!
The Labradorite Bracelets. Make a statement with these smoky blue labradorite bracelets and matching rosary. Keep it simple with the single row of 5mm labradorite stones wrapped in brown silk and leather, or go bold with 2 rows of labradorite handwired in oxidized sterling silver onto leather.
