Some of us are jewelry people, others have a handbag weakness. The great thing about handmade accessories, is that no two are alike. A handmade accessory is a great gift because you know the receiver won't have anything like it!
Rhode Island silversmith and jeweler, Dora Szekely designs and creates gorgeous pieces that are ecological and ethical. Her designs are organic and natural, yet glamorous! Dora takes her sourcing seriously and uses only fairmined and recycled sterling silver and gold. Each stone is genuine and natural. For custom pieces she will offer gemstones that she has sourced directly from the mines. She is working towards only using materials that can be fully traced to the source, protecting the environment and the workers. This is a very special gift option.
Gale knits winter accessories and sews children's outfits that have a certain whimsy and spunk to them! The quality behind her work is exceptional. She is always adding new styles like hats that resemble fox ears or cozy headbands in a variety of colors. She pays attention to detail. Anyone would be thrilled to receive a Sugartogs gift just in time for the winter months ahead!
Erika is inspired by women, geology and the natural world. Her jewelry is created using electroforming, a process that allows the copper to grow, resulting in a very natural, "unearthed" look. She uses raw crystals in everything from earrings, bracelets, hairpins and more. Her pieces are minimalistic, yet extremely eye catching! Great for layering!
