New Artists Coming to Artfully Elegant

February 2nd, 2011

Ranjeet and I spent the day in New York City at the New York International Gift Fair on Monday. The NYIGF is basically a huge trade show full of a variety of artists. Lots of our artists attend, so it was great to catch up with them, plus we added a couple of new artists to our collection. Here’s a quick rundown of all that went on:

  • We placed some quick reorders with Stephen Estelle, Veto, and Laurel Denise. We added a few necklaces and earrings to Stephen’s collection, which is new for us. I sold our last leather bracelet from Veto on Friday, so I added a bunch more. Laurel Denise basically sold out at Christmas TWICE, so a reorder was necessary. She’s making these really cute wrap bracelets/long necklaces, so we’re trying a bunch of them.
  • We’ve also got some new watches coming from Projects and more railroad birds from Stiles in Clay. Projects has a lot of new styles, so check back for those.
  • We spent a solid hour with Barb and Suzanne from Anne Sportun. They were wonderful as always and we really picked out some wonderful new jewelry. We’re adding 2 men’s bands. We’ve always focused on the women’s engagement and wedding rings, so we figure the men should get a chance to have an Anne Sportun. We’re also bringing in a few lovely sapphire necklaces and a pair of earrings. Plus, we’ve got 2 new engagement rings, one of which is a one of a kind. I am very excited for it all to arrive!
  • We added 3 new artists as well! Amy Peters of Amy Peters’ Studio creates beautiful necklaces, rings, and bracelets with tiny inspirational quotes with her signature touches. These are super affordable and delicate. If you like Kathy Bransfield, you’ll love Amy Peters!
  • We haven’t had a new artist of the non-jewelry variety in awhile, so we’re happy to add Debra Dresler of Stroke of Art. Debra make clocks from old cameras, ViewMasters, and rotary telephones. These are, in a word, awesome. Look for a dedicated post when they arrive in the gallery.
  • Last, but not least, I am really excited to announce Dogeared as our newest designer. Created by Marcia Maizel-Clarke in California in 1991, Dogeared features delicate sterling silver and gold-dipped charms on chains or nylon thread. We grabbed a bunch of necklaces and bracelets from their “Wish” line. You put the necklace (on thread) on and make a wish. When it wears off, your wish should come true. Most of them retail for $50 or under (less for those on thread), so they are easy to grab for gifts for a friend or for yourself.

I’ll announce each new arrival here, so check back often!
