Lisa Sirlin Hall who opened No Roses Gallery last year with her husband Tracy Hall explains, "Curating new collections for this season was delightful! Our favorite artisans are creating darling, durable and surprisingly more sophisticated jewelry in bright colors and youthful designs - perfect for kids and kids-at-heart. Parents have been telling us that their young ladies and gents are more savvy about jewelry than they were at their age. They want more choices, modern design and to have a say in their own style."
Thinking about gifting artisan jewelry to a trend-setting tween? Here are a few points to help you shop for a stylish young person.
From bunnies and rainbows to stars and dinosaurs, the whimsy of cartoon characters never goes out of style with children. How though, do you gift what we typically see on t-shirts and lunchboxes in a sophisticated accessory? The Sketch jewelry collection by Mark Poulin is just what younger jewelry lovers want. This talented cartoonist from California created a winning collection of character-filled necklaces and earrings in sterling silver and bright enamel. Puppies, kittens, fluffy sheep, four-legged octopus, tiny star gazers, rainbow hearts and others are set inside half-inch squares of sterling silver - perfect for younger boys and girls. Youthful women also giggle with glee when surprised by a gift of Mark Poulin jewelry.
Older teenagers demand a step up in sophistication and love to express themselves with meaningful images (horse, dandelion, owl, feather, key...) or their favorite color. Candy-colored fused glass pendants from Sunny Scarlett are a perfect way to gift something more grown up, yet still appropriate. From flowers to wild animals, the charming images on squares of bright turquoise, pink, vanilla and many other colors of glass make young ladies smile with personal style. A sturdy sterling silver snake chain is the perfect compliment to Scarlett's bright, modern pendants.
Kids are forever begging to create. They cook, build, draw and LOVE to design jewelry. Combining children's naturally creative curiosity and this season's HOT trend of interchangable, collectible beads, No Roses Gallery created a house line called Metro. Metro combines brightly colored textured glass with sterling silver or brass formed into tubes, barrels, bits, grommet and other sleek, modern shapes. At the Gallery, teens and parents can "design" jewelry by combining Metro centerpieces with charms of precious metal and gemstone, plus their choice of chain, cord, leather, bracelet or earring. No Roses also offers custom gift consultations to gift-givers, allowing them to select a perfect mix of color and design.
All three collections showcased in this release are currently available at No Roses Gallery - new pieces are arriving throughout the season.
