Like Gothic cathedrals and tax-return software, heartfelt gifts are most impressive when you design them yourself. Present a piece of yourself with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of custom jewelry from Lisa Nelson Designs.
With shows throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota, Lisa Nelson collaborates with clients to create customer-designed pieces of wearable art ($30–$60 each), fashioned from sterling silver, copper, brass, and gold fill and hand stamped with words and symbols. Celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or first skydiving date with a necklace, bracelet, or pair of lucky ear parachutes bearing amulets in an array of possible shapes and sizes. Once you've selected the base for your body garnish, Lisa will adorn your chosen piece with a name, a pair of names, or a favorite quotation from A Tale of Two Cities. Popular stamps are always on hand to spark inspiration. Call to arrange an in-studio visit to peruse current offerings or craft a signature work.
