Claudia Amling-MacFarland creates fine silver charm jewelry using precious metal clay. Her charms have been a hit with the Artisans staff, who have necklaces honoring our mothers, friends, pets, and children. Linnaea Holgers James, the owner of Artisans is proud to wear a beautiful Amling Designs necklace with an E, for her equally beautiful daughter Eloise!
If you haven't gotten to meet Eloise yet, be sure to look for the sweet, smiling girl who will reward you with a giggle and a wave next time you're in the store! She is definitely our best "employee."
C. Rose DesignsInstead of buying mom a bouquet this year, why not get her flowers that will last longer? Carissa Rose handcrafts gorgeous earrings, necklaces and hair pieces out of feathers, vintage lace, fabric and stones.
Carissa creates flower creations that she can wear and cherish for years. And mom will think of you ever time she dons her piece.
Nora DoughertyLocal artist Nora Dougherty uses lost wax casting and fabrication techniques to create jewelry that is three dimensional and kinetic. Her pieces evoke movement and nature, yet are still modern and stunning.
Dougherty says that "there is a strong relationship in my work to the different forms I admire and collect from the stunning northern california coastline." And you can see it in her incredible work!
Lion in the BoxNamed after her favorite childrens book, Lion in the Box is Linnaea Holgers James' newest creation (besides Eloise of course!). If mom already has plenty of jewelry, consider giving her one of these one-of-a-kind jewelry display boxes. Each box has a theme--from seashore to cats to spring cherry blossoms--and is as beautiful as the jewelry displayed in it. Lion in a Box will make its debut at the Mother's Day trunk show, so you or your mother could be among the first to own one of these unique and stunning creations!
