This golden yellow raw silk shoulder wrap is the perfect piece for a memorable New Year’s Eve. It’s stunning and romantic– both things that the new year should hold.

When it comes to children gifts, most think of games, toys, and clothing. However, very few gift jewelry to kids. It may be because people don’t think its something kids would enjoy, despite the fact that kids, especially girls, want to mimic adults. Or maybe because it would be too expensive, or vise versa, be cheap stuff that would be destroyed and tossed, like anything else.

Well, here an idea, gift a kid jewelry that is actually nice and kids would want to wear.  Guess what? It’s affordable, too!

The show will take place on Friday, June 12, 2009 in the courtyard outside of their salon in Brooklyn Park, MN.

We featured Silver River Metal in our 2009 Valentine’s Gift Guide.

As you know, I have always encouraged small Arts and Crafts businesses. I have one of my own, after all! Today I’d like to talk to you about Silver River Metal which is one of my favorites when it comes to handcrafted jewelry.

The products they offer are one-of-a-kind metal and stone pendants, belt buckles, bracelets, earings, glass pendants, necklaces, rings, pins and brooches. Their collection is pretty diverse and I’m sure you could find something to match any outfit!

The metals they use the most are copper and silver.

The prices are very affordable; if you are on a budget, I would recommend the earings under $10.00. My favorites are the flirty Chinese Lantern Earings for $9.00.

All of their products make excellent choices for unique and elegant gifts on Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, anniversary, wedding and any other special day. For more info and to see current selections, please visit their website.
