Unique, Handcrafted Jewelry at The Gift Shop

Our beautiful, hand-crafted jewelry selection is one of the aspects of The Gift Shop that draws people in. They know they will find something very special to please themselves, or as a gift for someone else.

Whatever your personal style, color coordination, or range of prices...we have it here.
Just look at our jewelry case, full of wondrous choices.

I have always wanted to highlight each individual artist, with an example of the work they create. So I am starting today with a few of our jewelry artists. The code for each artist is shown in parentheses. Look for that code on each piece of art to know who has created what. Each posting more artists will be introduced. Of course you can come into The Gift Shop and see them all, any time you like!

With over 50 great artists, all from Michigan, and some with work in several disciplines, it will take awhile to show them all. So..."stay tuned" for more of Meet the Artists in future posts.
