Artist Summer Whitmer's new display

When we found our new location on Montana we needed to lfind new artists to replace the few dear old timers we lost during the move.   We are happy to have found Summer Whitmer as a new jewelry artist to join our artist family.  Here's her statement...

My love of jewelry and design began once I was able to dig in my grandmothers costume jewelry. I used to parade up and down the block covered in jewels and wearing her square dancing skirts. I am a third generation Santa Monican and come from a family of past jewelers. As I grew older I began beading on a loom, making my own designs to honor my grandmothers Shoshone heritage. I started gaining an interest in Native American satchel embellishments along with bracelets, necklaces and earrings. I later took classes in metal work, really appreciating the beauty in mixing metals. Each piece I currently design is a one of a kind and has a story of it's own. For instance, I'll place each gem or stone in a specific place for the sake of encouraging, stimulating, balancing or calming your being. More of my bolder work incorporates handmade Tibetan beads that have a uniqueness all of their own. Some you must hold or wear to really feel their magic! Know that I only work with a clear mind in a static free home. As a mother of a beautiful young boy, I am truly blessed and am overwhelmed with love. I work at night once he's asleep in a cozy, warm home with dog at feet. If I feel the stones have negative or charged energy, I cleanse them by steeping in salt. If you are into it, I can even smudge your piece before it comes to you. Please contact me if you have any questions. If you so desire, we can work together and I can custom a piece just for you, a hand stamped tag with up to three lines at 8 characters per line, with stones used for healing properties, or both :)

Summer's pieces are a handsome statement to any outfit whether casual or for going out on the town.  A combination of stone, bone and silver is displayed on a variety of silver chains.  A must see when you come to visit.
