Another busy week has ended here at Atelier Shamila. Actually weekends never mean relaxation and spa days around here, it just means still working but with bobs of breaks during the day, or a happy hour, or as is the case tomorrow: a Mother's Day Trunk Show at Theo Chocolate in downtown Fremont. Our friends at Seattle Metropolitan Magazine featured the event in their blog:see you there! xoxoS
A compilation of my favourite places in Seattle to get lovely and thoughtful presents for myself and for my lovelies! Love that so many of my friends are in the business of spreading love with their talents!
I love my collaborations with Theo Chocolate. Not only do I love the company's philosophy and their darn-ly delicious chili and sea salt caramels - I have to say I am a big fan of co-founder Deb Music. Not only is she a general super woman both in business and otherwise, I am so happy to call her a dear friend. On May 7th, I will be showing a collection of decadent jewels that pair oh-so-finely with all the yummy chocolates that mom will want for sure. How nice to gift her with a little sparkly inedible keepsake too. So for Mom's day I will create some specially exquisite rose quartz in a honeycomb facet as well as layering necklaces with interesting pearls (I cannot keep the Keishi pearl necklaces in stock!) and an array of all sorts of delectable gems. I hope to see you there and bring Mom as well! Me thinks that the pairing of "Silky smooth caramel infused with the soothing essence of rose petals and enlivened with the sweet and peppery kick of fresh ginger" and "hand-cut rose quartz in a modern honeycomb facet accented with 14k gold ear-wires" makes a merry match for mama's inner Maharani!
