Jewelry by Debra Abrams
My work is created primarily of sterling, textured, and then inlaid with a vast array of
found, new, and re-purposed materials; all of
which are embedded in a matrix of black polymer.  

I find inspiration in the natural world
around me, and from the act of collecting.
My desire to liberate these collections from
the small glass jars in my studio drives
me to create settings for these tiny objects. 

Newly re-combined,
these treasures can
now be experienced
in an entirely 
different context. 

Whether these
objects are pearls
from a supplier, glass
shards from a scrap
box, or black sand
from a remote beach 
in Iceland, they are set
in silver and gold as respectfully as if they
were precious gems, ready to shimmer anew.

New Jewelry 
Artist Tracy Arrington

"I love the luxurious feel of
gold contrasted with the deep,
rich gray of oxidized silver. I use
these materials and others to create
new pieces with a classic look that
I hope you will enjoy. "

  After spending 12 years as a buyer
and merchandiser, Tracy Arrington
decided  to follow her passion and
started working in metals to design
and create beautiful jewelry.

A member of the Florida Society of
Goldsmiths, she received formal
training from the metals program
in Winter Park, Florida and
continues to study under many talented goldsmiths across the country.

To go along with our current show 
"At the Shore" 
     We have many artists that specialize in sea life - including....

Jewelry  by  Misti.

Find Your Way Back Jewelry
by Chucklefish 

    " I grew up on the beaches of southern North Carolina, and after a few years in other places, I'm a lucky girl to be able to call North Carolina 
home again.  My love of the sand and sea shines through in 
much of what I create. "
      The Find Your Way Back gold necklaces are composed 
of gold filled or gold plated components (the lat/long disc is 1
8kt gold plated and everything else is 14kt gold filled) with 
freshwater pearls, charms and tiny Swarovski crystal accents. 

The Find YourWay Back silver necklaces come on a 24"
silver plated ball chain necklace with a blue glass
charm and an ocean-themed pewter charm. The lat/long
disc is silver plated., these pieces will help you find
your way home to New Bern, Oriental, or Beaufort!

"Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth...then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can."
- Herman Melville
