If clothes make the man, jewelry makes the man into the shiny pharaonic idol he imagines himself to be after beating his all-time high score at Tetris. Celebrate puzzle panache with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get $100 toward custom jewelry and handcrafted glassware at llyn strong fine jewelry.
Artisan llyn strong has been fashioning finery for nearly 30 years, adorning outfits and abodes with upscale jewelry, ornaments, and glassware from her downtown studio-shop. Handcrafted custom jewelry gracefully adorns wrists, necks, earlobes, and Pegasus hooves, culling from countless combinations of precious metals, stones, and pearls ($99+). Shoppers can nab black-obsidian and sterling-silver earrings ($125), a sterling-silver and hand-caned, glass-bead bracelet ($105), or a piece from the latest "Gestures" line, which curls sterling silver and yellow gold into funky tendril earrings, necklaces, and rings.
llyn’s also boasts a large inventory of handcrafted jewelry, glassware, and décor from more than 60 other artists. Gallery-featured gemstone and glass gurus include Craig Zweifel, whose silver-crystal creations have made their way into the homes of two U.S. presidents, and Eric and Krista McKafferty, whose recycled gold-wrought rings draw from Japanese woodblock printing. Whether embracing the Art Noveau–inspired glass insects of Loy Allen, featured at Harvard’s Museum of Natural History, or colorful vases and plates by Josh Simpson, the one-of-a-kind designs delight home-havers of all stripes and divert attention away from long-forgotten macaroni craft projects. Call the shop for pricing on other artists' goods.
