Brass knuckles may be a bit extreme, but you’re a fan of jewelry that packs a punch.
Get pumped for Angela Monaco’s tough yet wearable designs (metallic cluster necklaces, braided double rings). View the collection ($45-$600) at her new showroom, opening Saturday, and be sure to poke your head into the rear workspace to see where the magic happens. Note to brides-to-be: She does custom work, nestling diamonds into nontraditional pieces.
Topstitch Boutique owner Linda Smyth’s Rabid Fox jewelry also makes an appearance, and the two designers plan to collaborate on a line (imagine Smyth’s critters perched atop Monaco’s crystal formations).
Count on each to be a total knockout.
Concrete Polish Showroom, 716 North Third Street (267-324-5201 or concretepolishstudio.com). Opening party, Saturday, 6-10 p.m.
