Best Shopping on Grand Avenue - 2012
Gloria Marsiglia's Grand Avenue jewelry shop and gallery is a gem worth unearthing. In the small space, you'll discover handcrafted necklaces, bracelets, beads, accessories, and other gifts made by local artists, including Marsiglia, who has designed decorative accouterments for more than 30 years. And she's all about sharing her in-depth knowledge. Marsiglia teaches workshops for beginners looking to learn about wire design, creative upcycling, chain-making, and cuffs, as well as more advanced sessions that tackle metalsmithing and wax casting, if you've got some experience under your handmade belt. On Third Fridays, you can share your new skills with other adornment fanatics during On the Dish, Marsiglia's networking potluck and wine-tasting series.
