Baltimore-based metalsmith Hilary Hachey prefers the simple over the complex and the solidly built over the mass marketed.

This ideal comes across in every piece Hachey produces.

The result is a geometric masterpiece that, while grounded in the simplistic, plays off some pretty complex ideas.

“I adopted the Bauhaus name for my jewelry because the Bauhaus aesthetic utilizes economy of method and severe geometry of form,” said Hachey, who studied metalsmithing at The Maryland Institute College of Art. “My metalwork, hand-fabricated in sterling silver and 18k gold, achieves this through experimentation with the figure/ground relationship.”

While Hachey’s pieces are heavily grounded in the geometry she loves to bring to life, the hints of personality and nature are undeniable and, dare we say it, sometimes almost whimsical.

Todd Reed knows a thing or two about the art of love. His engagement rings have been on the ring fingers of spouses-to-be for decades. That long-lasting success is a testament to Reed’s commitment to authentic design.

Reed proudly stands behind his product and his values and continues to offer a lifetime guarantee on the craftsmanship of every piece.

The winner of numerous awards and distinctions over the years, Reed is celebrated as an icon in the raw diamond jewelry designer community.

“I started to get interested in jewelry when I was 10, primarily watching and being interested in the craft of putting things together,” Reed said. “By the age of 19 I had a studio and was teaching myself jewelry making and starting to realize what it took to turn idea into a well constructed finished piece.”

Reed has an affinity for raw diamonds, which make every single one of his pieces absolutely unique.

“My work uses raw diamond cubes and other natural diamond shapes. It started as a way to question society about the idea of perceived value,” Reed said. “In particular how value and perceived value relate to ideas of beauty or perfection that have become norms of society. Raw diamonds offer a unique character every time; the unique surfaces and textures are individual and deeply inspiring.”

Take a look at Artfully Elegant’s Todd Reed Collection to find the unique piece that fits you and yours.

We can’t wait to show you what’s new at Artfully Elegant this month! If you’re living an eco-friendly life and love giving back to the environment, we now have the perfect neck candy for you! We love these new items by ReVetro, mostly because of how dynamic the product is! Each pendant has been made from bottles of craft beer, coca cola, bourbon whiskey, wine, or Bombay Sapphire gin. No… we are not making this up! So to all of our lovely wine-os and our fellow bar hoppers- don’t think your bottles are going to waste anymore. These necklaces come in various colors including: amber, green, clear, black, and blue making it easy to match with anything!

One of our favorite things about them is that they’re unisex too! If your guy is huge bourbon fan, then he’d love the bourbon ball chain necklace. Wine more your thing? Check out the amber wine leather necklace. Our friends at ReVetro are showing us how chic and fun repurposed, recycled, and reused glass can really be! Is there anything better than that? Make sure to show us your ReVetro look by tagging us on Instagram and be sure to hashtag #ArtfullyElegant. Happy shopping, from our jewelry box to yours!

Our group trunk show Jewelry Box is only two days away! We are so excited to have some of the artists come in and talk to everyone in person. However, we are just as excited and honored to have expanded collections from other favorite artists in the gallery. The ambitious and dedicated members of our artist roster, Belle Brooke and Julie Nolan will also be featured in our show! Although Belle Brooke has been in our gallery a bit longer than Julie Nolan, these two both have a knack for conquering the balance of beauty and tranquility. Julie Nolan entered our doors just in time for this past holiday season and boy was that good timing. Her constellation jewelry is a hit! Starting up her career in her studio apartment on the Lower East Side in New York City, Julie Nolan’s business and passion have grown stronger than ever. She is an inspiration to aspiring artists everywhere. Belle Brooke has been long time artist here at Artfully Elegant. She never fails to accomplish balance and unity in every single one of her pieces. Her yin and yang themed work has always been in high demand here at the gallery and we expect her signature creativity at our show, Jewelry Box! Come and see what these two bright minds bring to the show; I’m sure it will speak to you.

We all know that Artfully Elegant has a wide range of beautiful jewelry and artwork. What some of you might not know is that we’ll also be having a clothing and accessory display within our upcoming show Jewelry Box! The show is going to be fun, fresh, and trendy, so who better to have at the show than Ashley Feather of Soul Surfer? Her graphic Ts, screen print beanies, cute tote bags and more will be the perfect paring with your new jewelry from the show. It all began in the basement of the house she shared with Erin, our director of operations, during their senior year at Moravian College. She’s been developing her talents since then, making it a true passion of hers. Meet Bethlehem’s one and only soul surfer at the Jewelry Box opening reception on Friday, April 11th from 6-8pm. Swing by and hang ten with her again Saturday April 12th from 12-4pm. With the show blocks away from where it all started for her, Ashley is just as passionate about her work as she was in her college days. By taking one look at her line you can tell this designer is as optimistic yet conceptual as they come. With work featuring phrases such as “you are my sunshine” and “reach high for the stars lie hidden in your soul,” there is sure to be something for everyone. We’re very excited to have Ashley exhibit during Jewelry Box. Don’t miss out!
