When all of your friends sit down to brunch wearing the same bracelet, you know it's time to branch out. Handmade jewelry designer Paul Miller has got the goods to help. As Patch reports, he's bringing his eclectic designs to 2232 N. Clybourn Avenue in Lincoln Park later this month.
The part-retail space, part-workshop will feature statement bracelets, necklaces, and rings with a bohemian edge. "My goal is not just for people to think that it's beautiful," Miller says on his site. "I want them to feel connected to something while wearing it." Paintings from artist Peter Bialecki will be featured—and available for purchase—alongside the glam, oversized stones at the store.
Get in there before the rest of your crew does. The Paul Miller store will celebrate with a grand opening party on Saturday, August 24th from 5pm-10pm. You can enjoy complimentary cocktails and 15% off. And get there early—the first 30 people will walk out with a goodie bag.—Moira Lawler
