Jewelry designer June Rosen Lopez’s boutique and home are just up the street from the new pier; a charming neighborhood that lends itself to festive parties and funky jewelry.
June had a boutique for a number of years but eventually moved the shop into her home which also houses her workshop. For those who are familiar with June you know she opens her home each December for a holiday party that has friends and clients talking.
This year the party lasted three days – now that’s a party! February in Puerto Vallarta is the busiest month. It’s when the snowbirds are settled and those here for only a week or two arrive in droves to escape the frigid north.
So, in light of that and to share her home with those who missed out on the Christmas festivities, June is once again opening her home and shop up to the public for a two day Valentine’s Day party. There will be plenty to drink and decadent goodies from local bakeries and sweet shops. This is a great event to meet one of Vallarta’s finest jewelers, locals with good taste and make some new friends.
A resident in Paradise for almost 35 years, June has been enjoying Mexico long before she moved to Puerto Vallarta. Since she was a teenager, June has been studying and living in her adopted country. Originally from New York, June studied silversmithing in Taxco, the prestigious silver capital of Latin America. Her pieces are primarily made of silver and use precious and semi-precious gems stones. A diverse collection of work, June’s pieces range from chunky to delicate, funky to conservative.
This February 12 and 13th from 2-8pm each day, join June and her friends in a glass or two of wine while you ohhh and ahhh over the Valentine’s gift you rightly deserve.
