Line & Label (568 Manhattan Ave) create many of their unique, high-quality fashion and accessory products by hand in their Greenpoint shop and are adding a new line of jewelry to their repertoire, from in house by designer and owner Kate O’Reilly with a launch party tonight.
For years, Line & Label has carried Kate’s clothing designs, leather bags, and dream catchers alongside a thoughtful selection of curated products. With her background working for high end clothing designers, she brings a high-fashion sensibility with a very local touch (but without the steep price tags.)
That’s why we are very excited that after a year of thinking about creating a jewelry line, Line & Label is officially launching it and celebrating tonight!
“I have been practicing different techniques; soldering, casting, and stone setting and am excited to debut the beautiful new additions to the shop. As a designer, it felt like a natural progression,” O’Reilly.
Be the first to check out their new jewelry collection. There will also be readings by Stefanie for the launch of the Moon Void Tarot book.
Brownsville saw the start of the 6.8-mile-long pipeline’s construction in 2018, and the project quietly progressed toward North Brooklyn where local residents say that they were only recently informed of the plan.
