Let It Raine

Hunting & Gathering

BY BRITTANY MATTIE SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY OCT 4, 2019

It will likely be clear skies and sunshine this weekend, but don’t feel guilty seeking shelter inside the RAINE Studio. The quaint boutique space—which appears more like a mid-century modern home in the heart of Gillespie Park—is actually an indie hideaway for shopping funky necklaces, statement earrings, artisan clutches and cashmere apparel. Owner of the studio and designer/crafter of Raine Designs, Lorrie Dickinson, sources semi-precious beads found throughout the world, and either sterling silver or 14K gold filled wire for her one-of-a-kind pieces. 

Dickinson is not only talented at bringing together beads on one wire, but also bringing together five local women designers to one show. This Sunday, an open house event dubbed ‘5 Women, 1 Show’ will feature not only Dickinson’s Raine Designs, but also unique table decor from Marlene Meyer of TableTop Jewels, fierce paintings and prints by Karen Chandler Fine Art, coastal-chic furnishings from Melodie Burrus of The Gathering Place, and finally, handmade ceramics by Marla Solomon Katz. Wine and cheese reception to follow the female-fueled shopping spree. 

5 Women, 1 Show: Sunday, October 6, 2-5pm (parking available around the park)

Photos: 'Girl in Lemons' acrylic canvas by Karen Chandler Fine Art and Turquoise Disc earrings by Raine Designs.

RAINE Studio, 728 Gillespie Avenue Sarasota, 941-266-1396.
