Ah yes, here we are at that time of year when one starts to play close attention to the cost of plane fare to Mexico. The new collection from local jewelry juggernaut Betsy & Iya is well timed, then, themed as it is by the act of escaping. Called the Voyage Collection, it's inspired buy foreign destinations like Scandinavia (where the weather is far more bracing—better plan that one in summer) and, yes, Mexico, as well as Portland itself (this is the jewelry line whose most famous piece translated the St Johns bridge onto a bracelet, after all). The idea being that it's "as much a nod to where we dream of going as it is an offering of gratitude for where we’ve been.” Click over to MOD for more views of the collection.
