two weeks ago, i had the immense pleasure of attending the launch party
for rebekah j designs' new awa collection; and party, it was! the event was hosted
by chesney schmidt of all the flutter and
chris guillot of merchant method. it was held at the bemis arts building -
the space is gorgeous and allowed for an open, but intimate setting.
i was finally able to meet rebekah, founder and creator of rebekah j designs,
in person! not only is she incredibly genuine and kind (and gorgeous!), but the
excitement she possesses for her jewelry is seemingly palpable. i loved trying on the many
necklaces, rings and bracelets (some of which are pictured above).

^^^ so many friends, family, and bloggers in attendance to support rebekah! ^^^
rebekah spoke briefly about her excitement for the new line as
well as the inspiration behind it. i loved learning more about her family and
her desire to use jewelry-making as a creative outlet.
delicious eats were provided by andrea manca's wedding cakes and manca's
catering, as well as cupcakes from lulucakes vegan cupcakes.
my sweet tooth was very happy after enjoying one (or three!) of these beautiful cupcakes!

the awa collection was born after rebekah took a trip to hawaii with her husband and
daughter. the sunsets, white sand beaches, and gorgeous scenery can be
seen in the shapes and styles of the awa line. you can read more about the inspiration
behind the awa collection on rebekah's blog here.

collaboration with rebekah j designs on my blog here.

congratulations, rebekah! and thank you for including me
on your special day!
