To Have And To Gold

Iris 1956's darling jewelry cart will be set up at FREDA all month—browse handcrafted pieces for the modern-day muse.

Typically April in NOLA means gearing up for festival season. 

Distract yourself with all the shiny pretty things from Iris 1956. The brand, founded by New Orleans native designer and metalsmith Candias Smith, offers hand-crafted heirloom jewelry inspired by her African heritage and named as an ode to her mother. The curated selection ranges from 18 karat gold filled double cuffs to dome cocktail rings and toggle chain bracelets and necklaces. We love her summer-perfect asymmetrical seashell earrings

Music to your ears. 

Shop the pretty pieces in person during the Iris 1956 Pop Up at FREDA throughout the month of April. Candias will be selling her jewelry out of a cart set up at the shop inside the Ace Hotel.
