Amy Cousin Jewelry

I met Amy Cousin at a Jewelry Show. Her craft immediately stuck out to both of due to its fascinating, unorthodox design. She was combining semi-precious gemstones with…junk! Upcycling is Amy’s design philosophy, helping the environment by re-using manufactured items otherwise sent to junkyards. I was amazed not only by her commitment to the world we live in, but also with the final results! She powers old metals, circuit boards, and more with special gemstones to breath new life into these discarded objects. I’m so happy she joined us at HipSilver and certain her unique style will enthrall you.

Soul Thankful Jewelry

My partner and I enjoy traveling on the weekends, visiting small shopping markets, and discovering all sorts of unique items. On a fall trip, we went to see a friend who was a yogi and a budding ceramicist in her element, showing her creations in a group show. She introduced us to so many artisans and creative showings in her rural town of Blairstown. Along the way, we met Jana O’Connor and gleaned her genuine kindness and the spiritual nature that seemed to resonate from her. It is no surprise that she crafts a collection of Sterling Silver jewelry with aspirational and inspirational messaging. We happy to introduce hand-stamped gifts straight from her studio to our HipSilver family.

Uma | Raquel Davidowicz

We have been looking for a modern, minimalist collection that caters to all ages and is timeless. I discovered the UMA collection on an Instagram influencer feed of a lovely looking woman in her sixties. I was intrigued and fell in love with both the model and the style of her dress. Said style captured a creative woman that could be of any age or profession. In fact, Raquel takes inspiration from many influential Silvers such as Actress Tilda Swinton, Artist Anni Albers, and Dancer Pina Bausch. We reached out to the designer, who returned our note with enthusiasm to be featured on our site and shop the store in SOHO, New York. It is our pleasure to present the UMA S/S 19 collection for you to enjoy.

Pretty Rugged Blankets

A few months ago, I was winding my way through a maze of fashion forms and creative clothing designs at an amazing trade show, NY NOW at the Javitz Center in NYC, when my inner-eye caught a glimpse of an especially attractive presentation stall. What had caught my attention was a collection of faux-fur blankets which were wrapped, dare I say draped, elegantly and fashionably over several handsome female models. As they continued their peripatetic stroll, I was struck by the ease with which they were able to swing and sway...engaging and effortlessly completing their jobs. Before long, my animated curiosity compelled me to find out more about the inspiration behind these truly tantalizing treasures. The first person I approached just happened to be Tracy Slocum, the CEO and founder of Pretty Rugged. I was captivated by the visual designs and furry feel of the wide assortment of blankets on display. The patterns which mirrored the likenesses of a variety of  dazzling animals were the calling-cards of a soft and pliable collection of plush blankets in every reasonable size and shape. I found myself completely consumed in examining the Lap, Baby, Pet, and full-length Luxe Blankets. I also learned Tracy Slocum was the great, great, granddaughter of Joshua Slocum, the first person to sail around the world alone, earning the moniker: The New World Columbus. Ah-ha! Given the pedigree of her legacy, it did not surprise me that Tracy would strike out, in her own fashion, to create a family of blankets with universal purposes and appeal. These family-friendly coverings are musts. I am certain that once you wear the warm images and inspirations for these unique blankets, you will make their acquisition a statement of your distinctive good taste and genuine generosity.

East Village Hats - Polka-Dot Collection

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I introduce Julia Emily Knox, proprietress of East Village Hats and milliner extraordinaire. I usually visit her hat shop during my trips to NYC to be enchanted by her artistry and a superb millinery experience! I have been a fan or Julia’s “Urban Turbans” for several years and the beginnings of an East Village Hats collection in my hat room. 

Over a year ago, I acquired a top hat named the “Deadman.” Handmade by Julia from emerald-beaver-finish-fur felt, it’s four inches tall with a two-inch brim and fits like a glove. It’s one of the stars of my winter/fall hat collection, and I think of East Village Hats whenever I wear it. It always receives compliments wherever I go, and its color is unique and inspiring.

The shop is filled with an incredible selection of felts or straws, depending on the season. The selection of headwear to choose from is vast, both for men and women. If  you are a hat lover and haven’t been to East Village Hats, it’s time to stop in for a visit. I’ve found it to be a fascinating destination filled with art and charm.  

I’m thrilled to introduce the polk-dot collection from Julia’s spring line to the Hip Silver community. The headwear is exquisite, and there’s a style and shape to enhance many a spring ensemble. There is nothing more captivating than a well-made chapeau!
