With Valentine's Day less than three weeks away, jewelry stores are about to see an uptick in sales. But if bling is not your thing, consider cast-metal pieces from Rustee Pace, a new line out of San Francisco. A collaboration between the namesake founder and Mike Danielson, a metal artisan, Pace tells Racked the pair decided to create a jewelry line after she became inspired by all the metal materials Mike had around his shop. The result is a range of hammered bronze and brass earrings, bracelets, and necklaces at prices between $75 and $1250. Launched in October 2014, Rustee Pace jewelry is available at Aerena Galleries in Yountville, Gallery Lulo in Healdsburg, and online through the designers' website.
