So Icon Tattoo Studio has new owners and a new location to go with, at 813 N Russell, and this Friday from 6-11 pm they'll be warming it up with a grand opening gala. In addition to tattoos, the retail end of the operation features locally made goods, and Brehan Todd will be on hand to introduce her Icon line of jewelry. You may have seen Todd's work at other stores around town or perhaps Etsy, the best of which are riotous combinations of charms and bows and chains. This piece, called the Coney Island statement necklace for Narcisse (1015 SW Washington) is one of my favorites of what I've seen from her:

As is this piece for Flutter:

On the simpler end, I also love these beautiful little cuff links and lockets:

Show up to the party to see what she comes up with for the tattoo studio, and you'll also get to hear GingGang play, eat from Abby's Table, get your handwriting analyzed (?! sure why not...) by Carly Boyer, enter a raffle, and more. Oh! And take 10% off your retail purchase, too.
