Accents Jewelry Design Workshops

At Accents Jewelry Design, owner Steven Hanna teaches jewelry-making workshops, where customers can create adornments using the “lost wax technique,” a method that involves carving molten wax drippings into miniature sculptures that are then sent to a foundry and cast into silver. Participants are encouraged to experiment and discover their potential.

A staple on Main Street for over 30 years, @accentsjewelry was founded by local designer, and avid surfer, Steve Hanna in 1987. Steve has been a mentor to many designers throughout the years and helped boost their career by showcasing their jewelry in the store and much more. Accents has become a favorite shopping spot for locals and visitors alike with its constantly changing, unique of the moment styles. The personal friendly services, affordable prices, and great music create a community where people come to socialize and shop. Accents continues to have a gallery feeling offering wearable art and creative designs and a relaxed friendly attitude that makes all feel welcome. #OwnerSpotlight #MainStreetSM 💍🌳

Free People Fitness

As an outlet for customers to “wear in” their activewear, specialty women’s clothing brand Free People offers its Moving Together program, through which shoppers take part in health-and-wellness-oriented activities led by local fitness instructors. Many of the sessions, featuring yoga, Pilates or ballet, for example, take place in the Free People store; however, some take clients outdoors, even for surfing lessons under the temperate Santa Monica sun.
