To me, Solid Gold and the neighborhood where it lives was the most representative of the Austin I have always heard about...  The one that everyone says is most similar to Portland. It's owner, Katie, has such a cool and sharp eye.  Not to mention that she was such a pleasure to work with.  I LOVE MEETING THESE AMAZING SHOP OWNERS!  Have I told you guys that yet!?  I love my job. The shop itself is so well designed, by her and her husband.  It is light, airy, and super fresh. With its own Austin flair, it felt like I was walking in to a little bit of Portland. And that was really nice. She picked a wide range of b&i, but she was super duper excited about this necklace: [caption id="attachment_3028" align="aligncenter" width="450"] Ashlyn's Brilliance (named after the real deal "iya")[/caption] So I'm super duper excited to make it and get it in her HOT shop!  GO visit the lovely Katie and her beautiful shop! You GUYS!  Have an awesome weekend.  Seriously. xo~betsy ***Song of the Moment: You Wanted a Hit, by LCD Soundsystem***  Okay okay okay, I am truly behind the times because I just discovered this amazing music, but I have to say---I'm full-on smitten.  full on, people. images disclaimer:  I forgot my camera when I visited Solid Gold, so all of these amazing images are courtesy of their own website and facebook page.  Thank you, yay!
