Art and jewelry were on display at Lily Bar and Lounge when Yvette Brown’s Cosmopolitan Connections presented “The Artistic Sophistication & Jewelry Event!”
The artist, Wade Hampton, arrived in Las Vegas approximately a year and a half ago from New York City. According to Wade, he immediately started looking for inspirational individuals with whom to connect, which is how he met Yvette Brown, founder of Cosmopolitan Connections.

According to Yvette, “Wade attends our Cosmopolitan Connections Events regularly and we are excited to feature him and his art and jewelry, as he is a local business owner.”
“I just absolutely love his art and jewelry,” Yvette continued. “I’m a huge fan of him as a person too. He’s such a lovely guy and very talented.”
“Wade produces a lovely set to showcase his line at our events,” Yvette added. “I know it takes him hours to set up to his standards, and the display always looks absolutely amazing.”
Wade’s jewelry exhibit at Lily featured a stunning display of beautiful old-world inspired bracelets, wrist bands and necklaces crafted from black onyx, fresh pearl, gold and silver.
His artistic pieces vary in subject matter from portraits of Michael Jackson, explorers, still lifes and sketches as life passes by.
Lily was packed with people eager to meet the artist, view his creations and, of course, network.
Yvette has her events at Lily once per month for a multitude of reasons.
“The staff is great, and the venue and drinks are always top class.” Yvette explained. “We also get free entry into The Bank Nightclub afterward for our event guests, which is a real bonus and a nice treat for everyone.”
The person who brought the most guests won a complimentary table and bottle service at Lily. This is a $425 value.
