Bezel & Kiln To Open at Pacific Place
Bezel & Kiln, a new destination for personal and household adornment, arrives at Pacific Place next month. Located on the second floor adjacent to its sister store The Handmade Showroom, this 1,083 square foot pop-up concept features a highly curated collection of contemporary jewelry, meaningful accessories, and fine housewares crafted by independent artists and designers from all over the world. The public is invited to a grand opening celebration at Bezel & Kiln on Sunday, September 15 at 5 p.m., including new featured works and meet and greets with the artists.
Since 2015, The Handmade Showroom has offered a retail gallery featuring finely made gifts by independent artists, designers, and small-batch creative companies from all over the Pacific Northwest. Bezel & Kiln is an elevated riff on this concept, with its upscale gallery style and soft ambiance.
The inaugural collection will include nationally recognized jewelry artists such as Allison Kallaway of Montana, Janine DeCresenzo of Philadelphia, Michele A. Friedman of Chicago, and Susan Mahlstadt of Missouri, and well-known ceramic artists Tasha McKelvey of Virginia and Michelle Williams of Washington. For many of these artists, Bezel & Kiln will be the first gallery to represent their work in the Seattle area.
The name Bezel & Kiln refers to two key components of the craft represented in the collection. A Bezel is the solid circle of metal surrounding and securing a gemstone or watch crystal, while a Kiln is a type of specialty high-temperature oven used to create durable ceramics and pottery.

Pacific Place also offers complimentary parking with the Perks-to-Park promotion in September to shoppers and diners who spend $200 or more in single-day purchases exclusively at any of the center’s stores, services, restaurants or its AMC Pacific Place 11 theater.

Momentum on the Pacific Place redevelopment continues with the anticipated Amazon-facing grand entrance at 7th Avenue and Olive Way opening soon. While Pacific Place is undergoing redevelopment, its current line-up is one not to be missed, including Tiffany & Co., Kate Spade New York, Coach, Din Tai Fung and coming soon, the new restaurant Hai Di Lao Hot Pot.
