The following are some highlights from a busy year at iluxo in 2013.

In February 2013, my Kitty Cat ring was at the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week at Glamour Magazine’s Cat Fashion Concept Runway and Store! Below is a picture of the packaging of the rings at the event. Not only was there a runway show at the event, my rings were also given out in gift bags to VIPs. The fashion show was covered by StyleBistro, and they plugged me too.


Then, I was honored to have two of my city clocks featured on some super popular design blogs that I’ve been admiring and reading for years!

Refinery29 featured my SF Clock in their article on Best San Francisco Etsy Shops:


And Apartment Therapy, (who previously featured my SF Clock) added the LA Clock to LA Proud: Goods & Gifts for Angelenos.


Next, I was invited by the folks at West Elm to host a pop-up at their new Palo Alto store. Here’s a blog they wrote announcing the event. It was wonderful to work with West Elm again; they’d previously invited me to host a pop-up at their Santa Monica location in 2012 as a benefit for the LA Gay and Lesbian Center. Here are some pictures of me and my table from the Palo Alto Event:

In September, Commune SF asked me to be their featured seller at their event at San Francisco’s landmark bar Elbo Room. I even scored a mention on Broke-Ass Stuart. Some pictures from the event:

Then I was asked to be part of the Artisan Showcase at Re:Make, an artisan and maker conference held at San Francisco’s beautiful Fort Mason Center organized by Brit + Co. Here was a view from my booth:

In October I was invited to meet with Etsy admins and developers at the Etsy offices in downtown San Francisco! As a long time fan and seller on Etsy, it was really an amazing experience to chat with the people behind the site. They posted a picture of our chat on the Etsy Wholesale Twitter, and I even took my own fan girl photo as I left the offices with Trinity of Field Day Wearables.

I was also featured in many, many awesome articles and blog posts, including doing an interview for Ponoko, an article on IAMTHELAB, an article on SHK Magazine, etc.

On to 2014 … the blog has been rather quiet lately, as I’ve been working on big changes coming to the shop and blog! Thanks to the many people who reached out to iluxo to make these events happen in 2013.
