The handmade jewelry market is flourishing in Greensboro. In the above photo, Meagan Patillo is seen modeling one of her necklaces. These festive beauties are perfect for spring and would make great Easter and Mothers Day gifts. Meagan is the store director for Just Be at 352 South Elm Street. We had to convince her to model one of her own necklaces. Usually, she is directing customers to other artists represented in the store. Stephanie Willis, Dena Goldman, Christy Gunter, Christina Sin, Shirley Crowley, Stephanie Ward, and Melissa Blackburn are all makers of great necklaces and featured at Just Be.* It is easy to buy local with so many talented makers of jewelry.
Today is ABC Wednesday and N is for necklaces. See GDP's A-M entries for this round which we call "Alphabet Soup." Thank you Meagan for always being pleasant and upbeat- whether we buy anything or not. Thank you for introducing us to the work of so many great artists in Greensboro. Thank you for JUST BE-ing yourself.
*Many of these artists were trained at the Sawtooth School for Visual Arts in Winston-Salem.
