Denise Betesh in 22 Karat Gold

Ruthie, Louisa and Peggy traveled to one of the largest juried, high-end craft fairs in the country last week: the American Craft Council Show in Baltimore. Our goal? To find an extraordinary artist for the Gallery at Designer Gold.

S-Hook Earrings in 22 karat gold with removable 9mm Natural flawless Tahitian Pearl drops by Denise Betesh

We saw many talented artists and agonized over our choice, revisiting many artists and examining their work closely for both excellent beauty and outstanding quality. In the end, we were all completely captivated by the work of Denise Betesh. We are delighted to announce that her work will be available exclusively in our gallery this April.

Denise uses 22 karat gold, gorgeous stones and traditional techniques to create jewelry that is at once unique and timeless. In addition, many of her pieces are interchangeable -- the Tahitian pearl drops pictured in the image above, for example, can be removed from their S-hooks and replaced with these 22 karat gold and diamond drops.





We will have a variety of handmade chain necklaces, earrings and rings for you to see -- so stay tuned! 

In the meantime, visit her website to see more of her jewelry:
