Handmade Jewelry that Embodies the Whimsy of this World and Beyond

Venus Adorned

The Venus Adorned Collection: a captivating series of handcrafted jewelry that embodies the magic and whimsy of the sea. Each piece is created using real foraged seashells and sterling silver, perfectly paired with stunning gemstones, resulting in unique, wearable works of art. This collection seamlessly marries the jewels of the earth with the treasures of the ocean and marks the inception of Stephanie's journey into the art gallery world. These jewels have been on display at the Milburn Stone Theater Gallery since March but they're officially ready to hit the shop briefly to kick off our summer jewelry series. 

Venus Adorned Collection will be availble from 6/12 at 9:30pm EST to Midnight on 6/27, then any unclaimed jewels will be moved to the NoMa Gallery in downtown Frederick, MD.
