Handmade for the Holidays: Unique Local Jewelry Makes a Perfect Gift
Finding the perfect gift for loved ones can be tough – but you’re in luck, because South Walton is chock-full of unique, handmade local jewelry that you can’t find anywhere else. A hub for artists and artisans, South Walton will allow you to surprise loved ones with thoughtful and beautiful gifts they’ll never see coming.
Leather and pearl jewelry has recently gained national attention, with former Visit South Walton Artist of the Year Allison Craft’s pieces getting mentions in “Everyday with Rachel Ray” and Nashville Lifestyles. La Vie Est Belle, in Seaside, also has a range of the instantly-recognizable leather and pearl jewelry from various designers.
But there are also a variety of local artists selling many other unique styles of handmade jewelry. At Adaro Art in WaterSound, you’ll find a variety of handmade jewelry and other art from local and international artists. A collective of artists display their work in this open, airy space, and there’s something to suit anyone’s taste.
If you’re looking for something different, you never know what you’ll find at Cabana by The Seaside Style or 30A Art and Junk. An open-air bazaar, Cabana by The Seaside Style offers a market-like array of small huts, each filled with complementary Bohemian fashions from straw hats to unique necklaces. And at 30A Art and Junk, the word “junk” is just modesty – it’s filled with funky folk art, from clothing to signs, and a great selection of leather and pearl jewelry!
At Magpies in Santa Rosa Beach, a mother-daughter team searches the world to bring you the most interesting jewelry they can get their hands on. Whether it’s locally handmade or sourced from far away shores, you can be sure you’ll find something exciting with each visit. And at Wren’s Village Boutique in Miramar Beach, you’ll find a similar high-quality stock of handmade jewelry, along with clothing and shoes.
