Jewelry Trunk Show!

Annual Jewelry Trunk Show at Gallery 360 in South Minneapolis. Every year Merry and her team select three jewelry artists to premier a new collection for the season. This year me and two other amazing jewelry artists, Betty Jager and Chris Chookiatsirichai, roll out our newest jewels for this big event. I have a whole new collection filled with asymmetrical gemstone necklaces and weights and balances. Did I mention the whole gallery is 20% off!!!! Come do your Holiday shopping early. From ceramic mugs, oil paintings, and handmade notebooks, (and of course jewels!) Gallery 360 will have something for everyone. Hope to see you there!
