Jewelry Weekend February 12th - 13th! January 24, 2011 15:59 1 Comment

 While we appreciate that the design on a box of Whitman's Chocolates honors the craft tradition of the cross-stitch sampler, buying a box for your Valentine is kind of like saying "I am uninterested in maintaining this relationship." Instead, how about giving your honey a different kind of box, with a thoughtful, handmade, quality piece of jewelry inside? This is the equivalent of saying, from the top of Mount Kilimanjaro if it were placed on top of Mount Everest: "I value you dearly, and love you and your quirkiness, and if I were to get lucky tonight because of this, that would be AOK!"

On February 12th and 13th Craftland is having a Jewelry Extravaganza featuring an expanded jewelry selection and personal shoppers on hand to help shoppers navigate the many different styles and price ranges available in-store. In addition  to the large selection of jewelry available year-round, for these two days only, Crafltand is hosting a trunk show from local jewelers, including the work of Dahlia Kanner, LeeAnn Herreid of Individual Icons and Devienna Anggraini of DAmetals Jewelry. These jewelers will have several one-of-a-kind and limited edition work available for purchase. 

 

 

Dahlia Kanner Studio takes inspiration from nature, producing organic shaped pieces including earrings, necklaces and rings using sterling silver, gold and platinum.

 

 

DAmetals Jewelry creates contemporary silver jewelry inspired by simple shapes and geometrical forms. The pieces pop with color and are designed to both adorn and interact with the body.

 

 

LeeAnn Herreid of Individual Icons produces functional and innovative jewelry including compass rings and pendants set in sterling silver, spirit level earrings keep you in balance, stainless steel ruler bracelets give you the measure of things, and thermometer earrings keep you cool.

Other jewelry available at Craftland includes work by: Thea Izzi, Filomena Demarco Jewelry, Amie Louise Plante, Serasi Jewelry and K. O'Brien Jewelry, to name just a few.

There’s an affordable mix for all ages and price ranges, from about $20 to $600. Shoppers will find everything from earrings fashioned out of reused hardware, to fine, handcrafted silver and gold pieces. Like all items at Craftland, all jewelry is handcrafted from independent artisans, many of whom call New England home.

As always, purchases from Craftland are tax-free, and ample parking is available. Park at the Grant’s Block lot for two hours free with a validation stamp from Craftland. More parking information can be found online:  http://shopdowncity.com/parking.html
