Our main squeeze, model Meredith Adelaide is very familiar with the pieces at Craft & Culture. At one time or another she’s worn most of them. You may recognize her from our look book Sheer Society, many of the product shots on the site as well as the cover and main editorial of Ledger Magazine II photographed by Fiona Pepe. Not too shabby. Meredith is one of our favorite personalities and looks. The brainy Portland gal plays in a rad band, has appeared on Portlandia and, of course, gives good face. We caught up with Mer to find out her very favorite pieces on Craft & Culture.

A few favorite styles have just come back around and you’re the first to know!
Fail jewelry is made by Christine Fail in Austin, Texas where she also runs her own beautifully curated retail space called Schatzelein. Christine is a master metalsmith who creates each piece with an anvil and hammer. New pieces from her latest collection are also coming soon – think labradorite.
Elaine Ho is a jeweler out of Montreal who has collaborate with some of our favorite artists including Audrey Cantwell of Ovate. She brings the magic to the everyday in wearable but undeniably extraordinary pieces. Enter the Antler Earring in sterling silver. It can be worn both on the bottom of the ear and create a cuff-like casing around the ear’s outer edge OR up on the cartilage. Limited quantity. Only $70. Also – make sure you get your one of a kind two finger quartz ring before they’re gone!
And then, of course, one of our all-time favorite pieces from one of our all-time favorite artists, the Valhalla Hooded Sweatshirt by Ovate is back in stock. Oversized hood, long sleeves and the perfect drape. Join the cult and never look back. Photo of Audrey by Yuli Sato.
Craft & Culture’s newest look book is here! Sheer Society features the sexy S/S collection by Ovate and is paired with amazing, sharp jewels from Elaine Ho, Marmod8 and Isobel & Ezra. The shoot with our girl Meredith was pure magic and we’re so thrilled with all the newness up on C&C! Also – the best hoodies in the world are back in stock here!

Ledger Issue II by Craft & Culture is hot off the press! This issue is a love letter to independent designers, makers, movers, shakers and admirers of all kinds. What we mean to say is that we want to give a platform for people and products that live outside of the mainstream. The creation of independent fashion is nothing new but we believe it should be fiercely protected (and widely celebrated).
Features in this issue include a full editorial by the brilliant Fiona Pepe showcasing Craft & Culture’s latest jewelry and apparel, an interview with Gold Coast Trading designer Emeka Alams, a day spent with female drag queen Stella Rose Saint Clair photographed by Elisabet Davids and an exclusive photo shoot with rising indie model Hattie Watson plus designer exclusives and trend forecasts.
SEATTLEITES! Come grab your free copy and hang with collaborators, designers, featured artists and new faces at Cafe Pettirosso on Capitol Hill from 7-10 PM on March 18th. Co-hosted by the incomparable Fiona Pepe. Full bar and good times.
