Click! Design That Fits is proud to welcome artist Karen Konzuk for a special trunk on Saturday, April 16 from 10am to 5pm. Konzuk is a PNW-based jeweler working out of Vancouver, BC. She’s known for her modern, minimal designs featuring industrial materials like stainless steel and concrete, often juxtaposed with precious metals and diamonds.
Konzuk’s recent move from the fast-paced city to a remote coastal location provided a new venue for inspiration. Typically influenced by art, design and architecture, the designer found her attention drawn to something new – the landscape around her. “The collection is about taking a moment to appreciate things like the stars in the night sky,” says Konzuk. Referencing recognizable modern sculpture and star systems, the collection utilizes concrete & diamond dust inlaid into stainless steel.
On April 16th, Click! will be holding a launch of Konzuk’s Stellar collection. Along with her other jewelry collections (which feature coal black concrete and ombre concrete spheres), she will be bringing her line of modern commitment rings. Click! is excited to share that they’ll have times available for people to sign up & meet with her for a ring consultation.
Expect a gorgeous spread of her full jewelry lines, and time to meet this one of a kind designer / maker.

JuNO, The Junction Neighborhood Organization, and WSJA, The West Seattle Junction Association are having a dedication ceremony to celebrate the installation of 10 Symbolic West Seattle Historic bronze panels by local artist Lezlie Jane. Join us on April 7th from 6-7pm, at Starbucks (on the SE corner of California Ave and SW Alaska Street) as we celebrate this important milestone in Junction history.
The bronze panels & glass artwork by Lezlie Jane, along with the metal artwork by Miguel Edwards, reflect the evolution of the community. The artwork and other building improvements were a result of six years of community involvement working with the current owner Equity Residential, the former developer Conner Homes, and the City of Seattle to make this a great building for The Junction. This building has been the active center of West Seattle since 1907 and we’re excited that this artwork will be featured so prominently in our neighborhood.
Lezlie Jane will share her story on the 10 historic bronze panels which are installed in alcoves of the brick columns around of the Junction 47 building Starbucks store. The bas-relief panels were hand carved in clay, cast in bronze, then finished with a custom patina. Each panel has art depicting past and present places that are unique to the Duwamish Peninsula and the history of West Seattle. These panels include:
We hope you will join us in celebrating the installation of this artwork. Stop by to meet the artist, developer, city officials, and community volunteers who helped make it a reality and view the panels for the first time along with your fellow neighbors.

Spring is almost here! With longer days comes the promise of the warmer, sunnier days ahead. Our Junction businesses are saying farewell to winter and celebrating this new season with some great spring treats:
At Hotwire Online Coffeehouse, the peeps are back and they’ve brought a bad bunny too! Stop by Hotwire through the end of March to sample their fun spring drinks made all the sweeter by adding a peep marshmallow treat to the top. We suggest ordering yourself one of their delicious mochas. Fair warning though, choosing between their Honey,Chocolate & Lavender Mocha, their Raspberry and Mexican Chocolate Mocha, and the oh so cute Peepermint Mocha is nearly impossible! Better bring a friend… You can also enjoy their Bad Bunny Blend coffee through the end of March. Bad Bunny is a blend of Sumatran and Ethiopian beans. Look for notes of cedar and chocolate in this flavor profile, finished with blueberry and jasmine. Delicious!
Cupcake Royale is bringing the “Luck O’the Irish” to The Junction. Today, enjoy a St. Patrick’s Day themed cupcake like their Irish Car Bomb – a chocolate cake baked with Jive Espresso Stout from 2Beers Brewery, filled with Jameson Whiskey buttercream, topped with whipped Bailey’s Irish Cream frosting. Or maybe you’re more in the mood for their Grasshopper Cupcake – moist chocolate cake topped with a refreshing Seely’s peppermint buttercream frosting and dunked in warm house-made chocolate. Also available in Gluten Free! Cupcake Royale also has St. Patrick’s Day babycakes for a festive three-bite treat that everyone can enjoy. Come in soon though! The Irish Car Bomb is only available through the end of today, and the Grasshopper through the end of March.
