who: Iris Willow, jewelry designer

what's in No. 2: She wrote about her day trip to a secluded beach in Tomales Bay and how she avoided the oyster-shucking crowds in "Private Party."

weekends aren't complete without...sunshine and good company.

work: She just launched her Etsy store, selling colorful enamel and sterling silver earrings she makes by hand in her live-work loft.
