We’re happy to report that our first Museum Store Trunk Show — featuring the works of revered local designer Rebecca Lankford — was a smashing success. If you missed it, fear not, ’cause we’ve got more in the pipeline. But you don’t have to wait until a Friday for great Museum Store finds; check out the new designers we’ve been sporting!

ASHA New York

Ever wonder what it’s like to be a priceless piece of art or a celebrated architectural masterpiece? Well ASHA New York strives bring the beauty of art, architecture and historical artifacts to jewelry design. ASHA is designed by Ashley Dodgen-McCorrick, and a few of her fabulous pieces can be found in our Museum Store. The small selection we carry means we only have one piece of each item shown on our website, meaning you need to act fast to own a wearable masterpiece like this.

Dodgen-McCorrick started gaining inspiration for her handcrafted line on weekend trips to Venice, Prague and Edinburgh. She was first inspired by frequent visits to the medieval chapel, Sainte Chapelle in Paris. Several of her designs focus on interpreting architectural motifs and vintage pieces that she has found in her travels.

A perfect example of her amazing designs is this Saskia Pendant for her Gramercy Park South Collection. It is a perfectly clear, free spinning orb of crystal encased in gold vermeil with moonstone cabochons.

Annie Hammer

Complement your summer tan with some sunny jewelry from Annie Hammer. Hammer is based in Tucson, Arizona and features a lot of beautiful natural stones in her pieces. We just got in an order of her work and it is magnificently summery, with turquoise, lapis and quartz.

This amazonite, turquoise and apatite leather cuff is framed with a steel chain and set on a taupe suede cuff.

Annie HammerBelow is a quartz stalactite necklace with a silver-plated brass chain supporting the stalactite sliver wrapped in tan suede. Want.

Hammer’s pieces have that special quality of being fresh and casual while still being sophisticated. So whether you want to dress it up or down, these pieces are totes appropes.

A Peace Treaty

If you enjoy jewelry with a strong sense of craftsmanship, then this new addition to our Museum Store’s list of designers might interest you. A Peace Treaty was conceived by combining a love of high fashion with a desire to increase awareness of ancient and disappearing crafting traditions.

Each season’s collection is inspired by a culture or region, and the line is produced in one of nine fair trade cooperatives. We are currently featuring the Neteret Collection, which is inspired by the evolution of ancient Egyptian symbolism and its influence on modern art and architecture.

A Peace Treaty

In addition to stimulating struggling economies and creating ethically-produced accessories and apparel,  A Peace Treaty is plain PRETTY.

And as always, 100 percent of the Museum Store’s proceeds benefit HMNS’ educational mission. So it’s a big, shiny win-win!
