As a small business we are very interested in supporting fellow small businesses.  One way to accomplish this goal is to seek out small artist~owned jewelry companies. This page will provide an introduction of those artists and a small sample of the jewelry that is available at Glitter & Gold.  If you like what you see here you will love what you see when you visit us.

j & i ~ Jewelry designer Ian Gibson is the creative fj&iorce behind this beautiful line of sterling silver jewelry. He combines gemstones and pearls with the silver to create designs that have both an organic and artistic essence. His wife Jessica is the business mind behind the company. They work with a small group of talented artisans in their studio in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to create unique jewelry with an utmost attention to detail. 

Restrung ~ This line truly breaks the cycle of the ordinary. Naomi Celestin, creator and dexovivosigner of Restrung, has taken recycled and unused guitar strings that have been donated by some of the most talented musicians in the world and turned them into wearable art. The pieces are all handcrafted by a team of artisan women in her studio in New Orleans. To preserve the cultural heritage of the area, a portion of the profits are donated to The New Orleans Musicians Clinic and The Roots of Music. Rock on!

Nate's Rosary ~ Nathanial Epps has been designing and creating jewelry made of sterling silver and stones for the past 7 years.  whitneyHis vision and unique taste in jewelry has inspired him to produce creative pieces that reflect his outlook on life. All of his pieces are handforged in his hometown of Washington DC.

Just Tree Creations ~ Wire wrapper Marisa Longo is the artistic force behind this betessoroautiful line of mixed metal tree pendants and figures. Her "tree moon pearl pendants" are fashioned from sterling silver, copper and brass and incorporate a fresh water coin pearl to represent the full moon! The super moon setting behind the barren marsh trees was the original inspiration for these unique pieces of art. Her "trees on a half-shell" are hand wrapped from similar mixed metals and mounted on a variety of shells from the local harbor. Handcrafted in Ocean City, Maryland.

Hagit Gorali ~ Hagit is a jewelry designer from Israel. Shhagite has created a gorgeous line of pearl and semi-precious stone jewelry set in sterling silver and sometimes enhanced with 14kt yellow gold. Her designs incorporate shapes and textures from nature for a very organic look. Each piece is a work of art. Hagit’s studio and factory are located on her family farm in the beautiful countryside of Israel.

Tamara Kelly Designs ~Tamara’s wearable art designs capture the spontaneous and organic exploration of her surroundings and are inspired by the shapes, textures inherent to the natural world. She strives to create a certain depth of feeling with some forms being literal interpretations while others abstract or whimsical. daliaTamara often uses her dreams as a creative intervention during the design process and either sketches out her ideas or works “free form” to allow the materials and stones to influence the direction of each piece. She can often be found in her studio, experimenting with unexpected combinations of materials and new metal working techniques to realize her vision in innovative ways.

We are proud to bring these artists to you along with local artists that we are lucky enough to have discovered in our own home town. Come see what else we have to offer when you are at the beach!
