Jewelry is a natural way to express affection, which is why trees buy each other new rings every year. Proclaim your growing love with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of local, handmade jewelry and gifts at Tacoma Custom Jewelry.
Tacoma Custom Jewelry dresses up bare skin with a multitude of locally crafted adornments that support area artisans. Owner Shelly Smith spotlights work exclusively by Tacoma-region artists and jewelers, including her own pieces, assembled using naturally occurring stones, shells, and macaroni noodles. Flashing its fulgent stripes, a glass-angel fish necklace ($30) floats serenely from a subtle silver cord, attracting attention from admiring onlookers and scheming cats. A rainbow moonstone ring ($35.69–$47.99) bolsters the allure of come-hither fingers, and Shelly’s hand-sewn lapis lauzi necklace ($40), composed of tiny polished stones, encircles necklines in natural brilliance. Extending eye-catching flair beyond bodily canvases, a blue-and-silver wine-bottle stopper ($15) turns a casual tipple into an elegant toast.
Handmade paper crafts, bookmarks, and inspirational quotes surround the shop’s sparklers, adding further gift ideas for birthdays, wedding anniversaries, and apologies for betting the house on a turtle race. Shelly and her husband Dan also contribute a percentage of profits to local causes including the 6th Avenue Business Association and the Rotary Club of Tacoma.
