Angela Duffin is a Philadelphia jewelry maker with a background in textile design (B.S. from Philadelphia College of Textiles and Sciences). Duffin creates unique hand-fabricated sterling silver and mixed-metal jewelry with semi precious stones.

Her designs are inspired by a background in textile design as as well as organic forms found in nature. She incorporates the intricacies of fibers into her metalwork by using organic designs with much texture and detail, often interweaving and mixing the metals.

Screen Shot 2015-10-21 at 12.26.48 PM

The interweaving of metal and color combine to create intricate and wearable works of art. The metal is highly polished and with a patina finish to further add depth and color. Color is added with the use of semi-precious stones. She creates one-of-a-kind pieces that are highly polished and oxidized with a patina to show more color and depth. The jewelry tends to have movement and is made to be comfortable and fun.
Each piece is handmade and one-of-a-kind.

Duffin is affiliated with the PA Guild of Craftsmen, Haverford Guild of Craftsmen, PA Society of Goldsmiths, and Main Line Art Center.

ROCK 33 TUMBLERS – SET OF 2

What does the mysterious ’33’ on a bottle of tasty Rolling Rock stand for? Could it be the year of it’s debut? Nope, that was 1939. How about the year prohibition was repealed? Maybe, that was 1933. Perhaps the number of the racing horse pictured on the label? Or the number of letters in the Rolling Rock slogan? The list goes on and on, but there is one thing everyone can agree upon…These are some wicked cool tumblers! Set of 2 glasses in gift box.

Artfully Elegant is proud to be located on Main Street in beautiful downtown Bethlehem. We’ve seen our fair share of proposals along the cobblestone streets, many after we’ve helped them select their perfect ring.

And while Main Street in Bethlehem may be the closest to our shop, there are many places throughout the Lehigh Valley to propose to your significant other.

1. Any one of the Lehigh Valley’s Covered Bridges
coveredbridgelehighvalley

Lehigh County is home to numerous covered bridges, many of which have their original materials. There aren’t many more beautiful places to pop the question than in front of one of these rustic structures during the fall months. Photo courtesy of Discover Lehigh Valley.

 

2. Along The Lehigh Valley Wine Trail

The Lehigh Valley is home to nine wineries along The Lehigh Valley Wine Trail and each of them have their own charms. From Franklin Hill to Galen Glen (featured in our top photo), getting down on one knee during wine tasting not only takes the edge off, but may increase your chances of a “yes”!*

 

3. Coca-Cola Park and The PPL Center, Allentown

cocacolapark

These two spots may be more suitable for those who know that their significant others will definitely say yes. Coca-Cola Park is the home to the Lehigh Valley IronPigs and The PPL Center hosts the Lehigh Valley Phantoms ice hockey team. Profess your love in front of a crowd of thousands!

 

4. The Lafayette Inn, Easton

Lafayette Inn

Take your love on a weekend getaway at one of the Lehigh Valley’s most wondrous inns. The Lafayette Inn has 18 individually decorated guest rooms in a stunning 1895 Georgian Mansion.

 

5. Hawk Mountain

Hawk Mountain

For those who are a bit more of the outdoorsy type, take your loved up on possibly the best vantage point in the Lehigh Valley.

 

6. The Hoover Mason Trestle, Bethlehem

HooverMason

 

We’re not sure if anyone has gotten engaged on the Lehigh Valley’s newest attraction, but judging from some of the incredible pictures taken there, and our own experience walking on it, the Hoover Mason Trestle would be a fantastic spot.

Do you have any other locations you think would be perfect? Where did you get engaged?

Always remember, Artfully Elegant is here to help you when you’re making your decision on which handmade engagement ring to buy. Be original.

Ceramic artist Sandra Silberman’s whimsical jewelry design have been the heart of Dotti Potts Studio since its inception in 1993.

However, it would be a travesty to simplify Dotti Potts jewelry into only the “fun” category. Many of the designs are also inspirational and personal to those who wear them or buy them as a gift for loved ones.

Silberman has developed an international reputation for quality and classic design. Her ‘Dotti Potts Studio’ combines modern simplicity with whimsy, producing a range of wonderful necklaces available in Artfully Elegant’s online shop.

Silberman’s material of choice is durable chip-resistant porcelain clay. Dotti Potts are irresistibly tactile, and are meant to be seen and used daily, to create an ongoing experience of delight.

Raised in South Africa, Sandra has called Canada her home since 1994. Her work is available at juried shows such as the One of a Kind Show in Toronto, at the Art Gallery of Ontario, and at her studio in Barrie, Ontario.
