Introducing: Engagement Rings at TASI!!!

Here at TASI there is nothing we love more than when our jewelry becomes a part of our customer's lives - whether it's a special piece for an anniversary, earrings that become heirlooms or just that everyday necklace you can't live without. 
So it's seemed like a natural evolution for us to offer that jewelry piece that is perhaps the most important of all of life's moments - engagement rings!
 We wanted to focus on rings featuring uniquely shaped gemstones, colorful opals, white sapphires and brilliant moonstones instead of the common diamond that you see everywhere.  These stones are a beautiful, eco-friendly alternative for that unique bride to be that has a style all of her own and wants to stand out from the crowd!
From Washington D.C. designer Jaime Park, these rings range from tiny and delicate to statement-making and are sure to make that momentous occasion even more spectacular!
Available in any size, we are sure to have that unique ring for the most memorable time in your life and we are so honored to be a part of it!
Come visit us in store to see the beauty for yourself!

Eat the New Neighborhood!

Now that we’ve settled into our new digs in SE Portland, we wanted to share the best eats in our new neighborhood! Next time you come to TASI you won’t have to stumble far for some yummy sustenance after shopping til’ you drop!

This hip Japanese restaurant serves four ramens, one changing seasonally, and popular small plates including steamed buns and a beloved, warm Brussels sprouts and cauliflower salad. Our TASI staff favorite is the fried chicken rice bowl with kimchi and seaweed!  It’s a must!
 
The White Owl Social Club, a largely vegan bar and restaurant with a sprawling patio, is just a few blocks from our jewelry store! With a great happy hour, outdoor fire pits and outdoor dj’s, this place is a favorite of all types of folks.  And don’t worry carnivores, they have yummy meat options for you too.
 
The darling of Portland’s local, artisanal food scene, Olympia Provisions, is a must see because Oregon’s first USDA-approved salumeria is making sausage the old-fashioned way.  Serving up authentic charcuterie boards with a bounty of meats, cheeses and pickled vegetables, Olympia Provisions is putting Portland back on the meat map.
 
 
Located on the same block as Cargo, this brewery is a favorite amongst locals in the industrial district.  Offering creative dishes such as the Chuck Norris duck wings “with a solid punch and a nice kick” and classics like beef brisket and mac n’ cheese, this brewery is the perfect spot for some yummy comfort food with a twist.
 
 
Kachka just may be America’s best Russian restaurant but you be the judge! With traditional favorites like herring under a fur coat, dumplings, cabbage rolls and pickled fish, Kachka will give you a dining experience unlike any other in town.  Oh and did we mention they have a menu of twelve house infused alcohols, from horseradish to exotic buckthorn berries and bracingly tannic beet fernet?
 
 Looking for something a little fancier? Clarklewis is a bustling eatery in the central eastside industrial district serving Italian inspired local, organic, seasonal, sustainable fare. And it’s one block away! Clarklewis has received many honors since opening, including restaurant of the year from the Oregonion and is known for its farm-to-table approach to fine dining.  Check out their happy hour from 4:30-6:30pm for some cheaper bites!
 
Come visit us at our TASI store this weekend and tell us which was your favorite!

Introducing: THE SABI COLLECTION

Today, I'm so excited to introduce my new collection: The Sabi Collection. 
These pieces are inspired by my family and their work.  My Mom, who has been designing jewelry since she was 12, designs almost exclusively with antique and ancient beads.  She and her husband, Ebrima, share a passion for traveling the world in search of the rarest trade beads they can get their hands on.  I've always been inspired by old trade beads, and I've been fortunate enough to travel to Africa in search of them.
A percentage of every piece of jewelry sold from The Sabi Collection will go to buy seeds for the farmers in Ebrima's village, Sabi in The Gambia.

Tasi Turns 5!

Holy Moly - I can't believe it's been 5 years!

That's 5 years of doing what I love every day - creating jewelry by hand for lovely ladies (and the occasional man)!  I am so lucky to own this amazing business in such an inspiring town.

I couldn't have gotten to where I am without the amazing support of friends, family, and loyal customers.  Thank you Thank you Thank you.

My biggest thanks goes out to my sister Silvija - who helped build this business up from the days when we worked out of a closest and had nothing but fabric lining our wallets.  And though she's moved on to new opportunities, I feel like she's still here at my side lending her critical eye and amazing laughter.  I miss you Sil!


To celebrate 5 years we're offering 25% off through the end of October with coupon code:
