Along with a visit to the Atlanta Contemporary Jewelry Show, I had the opportunity to duck into some local galleries. Topaz Gallery specializes in jewelry, representing over 100 artists from the area and around the country. Several of the artists exhibiting at the jewelry show also had work in the gallery. The owner, Peter Embarrato, is very engaging and totally knowledgeable about every piece of work in the shop.
