A big thank you to everyone who came out for the Jewelry by Design opening this past Friday. We had a great turn out and introduced a lot of new people to the gallery. The mini cupcakes from the Upper Valley Cupcake Queen were a huge hit, especially the salted caramel if you were lucky enough to grab one! The Valley Flower Company did a wonderful job with the flower bouquets.
We knew each jeweler was working hard leading up to the show, but we were awed by the breadth and creativity shown in each body of work. If you haven't yet had the chance to check out the show, here are some highlights:
Orin's raw lapis, gold and diamond necklace and earrings set -- make sure you ask to see the whimsical details on the backs!
Paul finished a show-stopping sterling silver white drusy quartz pendant with sapphires, strung on fresh water pearls.
Jeff created a number of imaginative belt buckles using the keys from an old type writer.
Ruthie's Bolo necklaces with adjustable slides were a huge success!
Louisa created 2 beautiful sets of barnacle earrings with drusy drops in gold and silver.
The show will be up until October 10th. Don't miss it!
