Marketplace Preview: Handmade Jewelery

Have you heard?? The 5th Annual Boston Handmade Marketplace will be held in Union Square, Somerville on Saturday, June 30th (rain date Sunday, July 1st) from 3-7pm. There will be so much to do and see with artists and craftspeople working in all media, along with live music, craft demonstrations and DIY activities. Today's preview: JEWELRY!

Oh the beauty and majesty of handmade jewelry designed and created by local artists. Here's a sampling of what you will see on June 30th...

k.o'brien jewelry creates earrings, necklaces and rings with sterling silver and enamel. Of her work O'Brien says, "I prefer to make one of a kind pieces, playing around with piece after piece leaving some ideas behind and taking other ideas along to blend with the new." This is the first year of k.o'brien jewelry at the Marketplace.

Little Wishes Handmade Jewelry is gemstones at their finest. Little Wishes returns to the 2012 Boston Handmade Marketplace with pendants, charms, earrings, for everyday and for special occasions. A Marketplace favorite is the chunky, funky Bold Collection.

Another newcomer to the 2012 Marketplace is Gilded Days who creates jewelry with sheet music inspired by a love of music and romance. The sweet, sentimental pieces by this artist will warm your heart while it adorns your body.

Local favorite Glamourpuss Creations joins the Marketplace again this year with her handcrafted jewelry designed exclusively from uncirculated vintage components like aged brass charms, lucite beads, and 70s chunky chain.
