Introducing our Featured Member Area

{{ Our Artists Speak }}
- - an ongoing feature  - -

 Charmed by Jenn

As you step into Boutique 208 and look to your right, you will find our new
 "Featured Member Area."  

Every 2 weeks this area will change to showcase a different member.


For the next 2 weeks, Jennifer Baldauf of Charmed by Jenn will be our featured artist.  She has been creating an array of art for longer than she can remember, but has put her focus on jewelry over the past 10 years.

Jennifer is showcasing her embossed designs in the featured area.  In order to make these intricate pieces, she starts with a blank piece of natural brass (all nickel-free and lead-free, so that's good news for those with metal allergies!), then she embosses her desired design into the metal, and goes through a sanding and buffing stage that raises the metal.  Once this process is complete, she then adds color with metal patinas, and finally seals the color in with a metal glaze which protects the design for decades to come.  Each design is meticulously hand-crafted and created with much attention to detail and love.  All designs made by Charmed by Jenn are one-of-a-kind originals!  Jennifer believes that you are all unique, and your jewelry should reflect that!

Jennifer Baldauf also creates many pieces of beaded jewelry.  You can find her bead work in a separate area of the shop.  For the next 2 weeks, all of her beaded earrings are priced at $10 with a buy 2/get 1 free special.  Her beaded bracelets have all been reduced to $15 (usually retailing for $25-$50), and her beaded necklaces have been priced $25 (regular retail of $30-$65). 

Please stop in and purchase one of her designs!
