New Ali Grace jewelry has hit Carrots. Ali’s laid back version of glamour is super wearable and lots of fun. Not only does Ali Grace’s jewelry make you smile, but it opens you up to level of hipness that is creative and simple. You can wear a major piece of Ali’s jewelry like a crystal suspended from a tiny string of garnets and not feel like you are advertising. It’s organic and blends in… but don’t be surprised if a passer by falls in love with your necklace or bracelet.

Eyes are Sia Taylor’s delicate jewelry this week. A new line for Carrots and a real treasure these bracelets, earrings, and necklaces are dainty, light, and original. A graduate of the British Royal College of Art, Sia Taylor’s is trained in the fine art of sculpture. It was a post-graduate adventure through Botswana that opened her eyes to inspiration from the natural world. The story goes that Sia started her first jewelry collection the summer after graduation under the shade of a thorn tree in the African savanna. She was touched after taking a macroscopic look into the intimate and contemplative world of seeds, flowers, grasses, leaves, and even little crawling creatures.
Sia Taylor’s restrained and elegant use of yellow, red, and white gold, polished and oxidized silver, and the precious metals of ruthenium and rhodium allows her detailed work to retain a minimalist quality.
These days Sia Taylor gets her ideas from rambles taken through her native British countryside. A leaf stirring, a crow peaking through the reeds, or a fox on the run can spark some new concept for her work.

1. Jeanine Payer
A local San Franciscan and pioneer of poetry and prose engraved jewelry, Jeanine Payer brings her collection to CARROTS. Jeanine Payer’s designs are whimsical, romantic, delicate, and thoughtful. Each piece is engraved in the most minute script (we can’t believe they can do this free hand) and each quote makes each piece all the more personal.
2. Martin Margiela small leather goods
Impeccable finishing, fine leather, and convenient sizes. The bordeaux color just in for Fall is really rich and pretty.
3. Faliero Sarti
A scarf for every season.
This L.A. collection is a new one for us. We love their soft and cozy t-shirts and tunics. I almost wore mine to bed I felt so comfy!
5. Eli Halili
Some of you well traveled types might know Eli Halili for his gorgeous jewelry shop in New York. Eli is now doing handbags and they speak to the designer’s impeccable taste. Structurally they are exquisite in their shape and design. The calf leather, ostrich leather, and sterling silver hardware is superb.
6. Parker Blue
New basics just in!
7. Ilia cosmetics
We love this all organic, ‘no-bad-stuff’ cosmetics line. The new lip crayons just arrived.
8. Goldsign virtual in focus
It’s nice to have a higher rise for a change.
9. Avant Toi
Coming soon! The best kept secret in cashmere – Avant Toi will be at Carrots this Fall.
10. Hitchcock Madrona
A recent discovery from Seattle: Hitchcock Madrona … what a good name. This ultra-cool design duo is, in fact, Erica Nelson-Sheehan and Dustin Nelson. They also own a great shop in Seattle, but you can get a piece of the action here in SF with their leather and metal cuffs.
