Signature Contemporary Craft - Atlanta

Another gallery that I visited in Atlanta at the beginning of November is Signature Contemporary Craft, which carries sculpture, objects and jewelry. They were just installing a new show of bird sculpture, which of course totally captivated my interest. Along with ceramics, glass, furniture, sculpture and fiber, there were lovely drawers full of jewelry by some of my favorite artists.

Todd Reed
Todd Reed has become well known and quite fashionable, especially for his bridal jewelry, made from elegantly set raw and unusual colored diamonds.

Kristin Lora's whimsical jewelry often includes plastic toy animals or silver casts of such, sure to bring a smile. They are a natural expression of her original career interests in zoology.

Other jewelry artists from my favorites that are carried by the shop include Petra Class, Karen Gilbert, and Joanna Gollberg. Definitely a place to stop by when visiting Atlanta.
