Our three jewelers are Carol Fails with All Strung Out Designs, Besty Hindman with Plum Vintage Jewelry and Helen Curnutte Fine Jewelry.
All Strung Out Designs: I’ve known Carol for several years and I used to sell her line of jewelry at a women’s clothing trunk sale that I hosted at my house. Carol’s line became practically as big of a draw as the clothes! When she launched her line of horn cuffs a couple years ago, her business really took off. The cuffs are each one-of-a-kind and women have started to collect them – they can’t get enough!
In addition to the cuffs, Carol is known for her wrapped earrings, custom-made in three different sizes:
Carol will have order forms ready for her custom, made-to-order necklaces:
Plum Vintage Jewelry: Betsy Hindman created this company a little over a year ago and it’s hard to believe that it hasn’t been around longer. Betsy sells a line of individually picked pieces of vintage jewelry that each work perfectly in today’s modern world. She started out with vintage charm bracelets and grew the company to include all types of vintage jewelry. She has brokers throughout America and Europe who scout her out the best pieces that exude confidence, taste and elegance. I love my Plum Vintage pieces.
Helen Curnutte Fine Jewelry: What I love about Helen’s work is the rich patinas she achieves with her copper earrings. By allowing the the copper to oxidize, a gorgeous blue-green tone is created which is simply exquisite. She has worked in copper for a number of years creating large outdoor sculptures in addition to her jewelry collection.
Don’t you love the sense of whimsy and fun in her scribble copper necklace?
In addition, Helen offers jewelry with gold and fine gems. A particular favorite of mine are her stackable rings. These make a great compliment to your fall outfit. Helen built her reputation in Memphis as a jeweler with a creative flair; we’re lucky she calls Nashville home.
The SB GIfts and Accessories Show will be November 3rd and 4th at Two Moon Gallery.
