  1. Sterling Solar Eclipse Jewelry by Asheville Artist Candy Emerson

    Total Solar Eclipse Day, Monday August 21, 2017

    Kind of excited about the solar eclipse? You are not alone – so are we! In fact a few of us are heading out of town to catch the best views since downtown Asheville has only a 99% totality.

    That’s fancy talk that means we get cheated out of the full deal! But the gallery will be OPEN.

    So us die-hards will still be here…suffering and selling this spectacular, one-of-a-kind (once-in-a-lifetime) piece of metal jewelry.

    The Total Solar Eclipse Bracelet is made completely from hand-stamped and hand hammered sterling silver by Asheville metal smith Candy Emerson.

    Candy has used a beautiful piece of black onyx as setting for the total eclipse and then hand stamped and engraved on the sides the other stages of an eclipse:

    1. Begin of Partial eclipse
    2. Begin of Total eclipse
    3. Totality or the maximum eclipse (the onyx setting)
    4. End of Total eclipse
    5. End of Partial eclipse

     

    If you are excited about chasing after the Great American eclipse, then we invite you to drop by or call us (we expect this piece to go fast).

    Don’t forget to check out this fabulous bracelet for yourself (or as a great gift idea).

    UPDATE: Bonnie will be here on Saturday, August 18, 2017 for art demo!

    Asheville Fiber Art

    Local fiber artist and award-winning quilter, Bonnie Lucas specializes in creating quilted wall hangings using an ancient Cherokee Indian technique called plant or leaf pounding.

    So how is flower or plant pounding really done?

    Bonnie explains it best…

    ”This is a process of infusing the actual pigment from plants into the fibers of fabric. The basic plant pounding technique is actually a fairly simple one…you take fresh actual flowers, leaves and other natural greenery; even weeds and with a hammer literally pound the plant’s natural dyes and colors into a light-colored fabric backing.” (more…)
