[Chicago Fashion Event] A Week with Mark Shale: Shop Local Designers!

Curated offerings of Chicago jewelry designers: Dana Reed, JULES, and Rebecca Zemans

To help you all get ready to take full advantage of my #SummerStyle event that I will be hosting at Mark Shale on Thursday, July 12th, I wanted to take the next week and  highlight just a few of the amazing accessory offerings that Mark Shale has to offer for both men and women.

As a cornerstone of luxury retailing in Chicago, it is no surprise that Mark Shale has 3 Chicago jewelry designers amongst their selective list of women's jewelry offerings.

JULES, is designed by native Chicagoan Jules Schwanbeck.  Her pieces are inspired by organic imperfections in nature, deep color variations of gemstones, rich textures of raw minerals and blemishes on hand-hammered metals.  Her eclectic pieces are definite one-of-a-kind pieces due to her unique usage of selective materials coupled with distinct metalsmithing.

Dana Reed, designs for the woman who wants to set herself apart from others.  Her pieces are feminine and unique and exude the must to only be worn by a statement maker.  Dana is inspired by different cultures, nature and art.  She combines the exotic elements of many cultures with art deco influenced geometrics and ultrachic textures.

Rebecca Zemans, her jewelry is inspired by the exploration of the structural similarity of biological cells and celestial bodies.  Rebecca's pieces are sculptural magnifications of of these forms and how they are repeated in the world from architecture to anthropology.  What's also extremely unique is that she employs sustainable practices by using recycled metals, natural conflict-free gemstones, and making everything locally in Chicago.
