I buy jewelry, shoes, and scarves because no matter what my size or shape, they always fit.
I am lucky that I know two women who make great jewelry.
First, there is the jewelry lady in Scottsdale, Shelly Pedretti. Her pieces are absolutely gorgeous and not too expensive.
|Look at the workmanship of this bracelet!|
|lovely, more simple bracelet|
|Isn’t this necklace amazing?|
|The pendant and the gold work is so interesting|
She works in silver, gold vermeil (gold over silver) and has hundreds, maybe thousands, of pendants, stones, and other “trinkets”.
We visit our friends in Scottsdale every year and along with dinner at FNB, a buying visit to Shelly is now on the must do list.
The other “jewelry lady” is my friend, Dottie Friedman Cohen, also a designer and creator. Her pieces are mostly in silver and are more “modern” than Shelly’s. I love them as well.
|An intricate bracelet|
|Great workmanship and design|
|A fascinating pendant|
You can see more of Dottie’s work at Farrago Gallery in Newnan, Georgia, near Atlanta. Newnan is a great town to visit, by the way, and is near Serenbe, a 1,000 acre sustainable community and also a great place to spend time.
I own two Pedretti pieces and one Cohen . . . so far.
