Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) October 14, 2005
Rena Tom, designer of modern and organic jewelry, is opening a studio/storefront in the south Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn.
The name of the store, Rare Device, is taken from Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem 'Kubla Khan', and represents the precious yet useful nature of the items in the store. Rena will create her jewelry in the back of the shop and sell select pieces from her line (see renatom.com) as well as limited-edition work. She will showcase smaller, independent designers, some of whom are brand-new to Brooklyn, the East Coast, or to the U.S.
Rare Device will feature many hard-to-find West Coast designers (Rena is from California) and favorite Brooklyn brands, as well as select men’s and women’s clothing, pillows, tabletop, paper goods and fun design objects from around the world. Bags, belts and design books will round out the offerings, all in less than 300 sq ft!
Rare Device will open October 12 and is located at 453 7th Avenue between 15th and 16th St; closest subway is F/G 7th Avenue. Current shop hours are Wednesday through Saturday, noon to 7pm and Sunday, noon to 6pm.
