My good friend Lily started this incredible jewelry line called In The Shadows. Though Lily lives and works in Brooklyn, she grew up in the Bay Area and pulls from her California roots. For her premiere collection, she was inspired by Yosemite and named each handcrafted piece after a different place in Yosemite National Park, such as Ahwahnee Village and El Capitan.
What I adore about her work is that each and every piece is unique and uses different materials, which makes for something special and timeless. The inspiration also has a special place in my heart as my parents went on their honeymoon in Yosemite and often took my older brother and I there as children. I think if I had to choose one piece I’d love the Vernals Falls necklace (isn’t it amazing?!)
Along with showcasing her pieces on her website, her accessories can be purchased at Here In The Shadows on Etsy. (Click on an image to be taken to the store.)
