The open, airy floor space of the boutique is filled with wooden displays strewn with handmade metallic wares and earth-hued gems. Some jewelry is crafted from eco-friendly or recycled materials. Much is locally and American made by independent artists; featured artists get individualized display space for their wares. Prices range widely, but basic earrings cost $20–$75, and most bracelets cost either $20–$50 or $50–$175. Individual-artist necklaces range from $20–$80. Charms are available for $10–$20 each. Select a bunch and make your own necklace, or assemble sigils of significance as a gift to a symbol-loving loved one.
