Local designers Sophie Blake and Erika Schrieber unveiled their combined jewelry and clothing pop-up shop November 24 in the Mosaic District. Both aesthetics blend seamlessly for a look that emphasizes their preference for well-made, minimalist pieces with an edge. For the next six months customers can see some of their favorite pieces from the online shops in person and pick up one of the signature candles sold exclusively in the store.
