We found super babes Maya & Mindy looking all sorts of fine wearing pieces from You + Me, pt. 1, so naturally, we had to snap some pictures to share with you. Versatility is something I always consider when buying jewelry and these ladies do a great job of showing ways to wear your betsy & iya with a variety of ensembles. The pictures speak for themselves; take a look & be inspired!
There’s two things you can always count on betsy & iya to do better than almost anyone: making super awesome jewelry & throwing super awesome parties. Don’t tell me that the only certainties in life are death & taxes!
To celebrate the launch of our newest collection, You + Me, pt. 1, we decided to combine our two strengths & throw a party. Obviously, we wanted to do a little something to commemorate the 15 amazing pieces of new jewelry, but we also wanted to have some fun together after working super hard to finish everything in time for the launch.
Our small shindig included our top customers, VIPs, & press, who were invited to come see the new collection in person and toast to the joy of more betsy & iya jewelry out in this world.
We’ll be hosting another public release party for First Thursday on February 5th. Stay tuned for more deets! (Yes, we will have the photo area & props set out for that party, too. Don’t you fret).
Thanks for all the You + Me, pt. 1 love thus far! It feels so wonderful to hear all the positive reactions.
World, meet You + Me. pt. 1*, the newest collection of jewelry from betsy & iya.
This collection has been over a year in the making, drawing inspiration from touch, balance, & the many ways – literally & figuratively – that humans fit together. Made of brass, bronze, silver, and fiber, these 14 pieces are extremely accessible, and many can be worn multiple ways. Wear the two parts of the Mía ring interlocked together, or on different fingers. Feeling generous? Wear one and give one to a friend. Even if it’s just for a few hours because let’s be real, you’re going to want it back.
This collection is important to us for so many reasons; it’s the first new collection since Voyage was released in September 2013. It’s the first that’s been fully designed & made in our expanded space. It’s the first to include handspun fiber. It’s also a fascinating story how this collection came to be- it wasn’t initially what Betsy set out to create, but one night and one shape changed all that. *Watch the The Birth of a Collection for the full story*
A jewelry lover’s dream because of the range in sizes, metals, and shapes, You + Me, pt. 1 includes several pieces that I know will soon be among my most beloved. I’ve been mentally plotting my first purchase from this collection for weeks!
Can’t wait to start seeing these pieces out in the world!
*Yeah that’s right, there will be pt. 2 – even more new betsy & iya jewelry – coming later this year! 2015, you’re looking up.
