As of March 20, spring is officially here. We suggest you celebrate by freshening up your wardrobe with some fun accessory shopping in Seaside. A leisurely day spent browsing and splurging is just what the doctor ordered. While you are out getting some retail therapy, you’ll need to stay fueled up and hydrated, too. So we’ve got a few treasures in that department, as well.

Newbill Collection - Establish Your Architectural Jewelry Collection
Newbill Collection By The Sea, Seaside’s longest continuously operating art gallery, is also known for its extensive selection of architecturally inspired jewelry. Annette Newbill Trujillo, gallery owner, says, “Since Seaside is internationally known for its architecture, it is only fitting we offer jewelry that reflects bold, kinetic and sculptural qualities.” One jeweler who best offers the season’s strongest shapes is Vanessa Gade, a San Francisco artist, whose pieces make a contemporary statement with clean lines and a minimalist aesthetic as well as a timeless style. The gallery has a wide selection of her necklaces and earrings. All of Gade’s jewelry is created by hand in precious metals, and most of the necklaces range in price from $150 to $300.
