This blog will be used to highlight new and fun items in the shop and online, provide news about things going on in downtown Lawrenceville and showcase some of my favorite creations.
My shop is located at 178 E Crogan street in downtown Lawrenceville. We are in a building known as the "Honest Alley Exchange" though we still do not have any signage that would let you know that. I am hopeful that our landlords will get this up soon!
The renovations on the shop took a little (well, a lot!) longer than expected and we were not able to get open until Thanksgiving day 2007. See my "brick and mortar" page on the website for details and photos of the renovation process!
Since then, we've been greeted very warmly by the good folks of Lawrenceville! Lots of folks received Sparkle! gifts in our signature organza bags and purple boxes for Christmas and many more discovered us on New Year's Eve during the fabulous Lawrenceville Rings celebration. If you haven't checked us out yet, come on by and plan to spend a little time. We have much to see!!

Sparkle! carries well over 20 lines of artisan jewelry in many many styles and price points. Some of the lines we carry are from local artisans such as Gwendy's Gems, Silver Box Designs, Agape Gems and Doodlebug dezines. Of course, I also make a line of jewelry under the Sparkle! label. We also carry jewelry from Accessories by M, Xovo, For the Journey, Owen Glass, Neckfluffs, Bora, Austin Alexander, Vida Dulce Imports, Pink House Imports, Kharmic Creations, Fox Lane, Cathedral Collection, Rustic Attitude and many others! We also carry storage solutions such as jewelry boxes by Longolines, hand painted earring holders by the Earring Holder Gallery and wonderful pouches and travel cases by Jazz'd. You'll also find great gift items, purses and so much more! Coming soon we'll have jewelry from Pick up sticks, Zulugrass by the Leakey Collection and Robin Goodfellow designs!
Each month I will plan to highlight one of the lines we carry and give you lots more info about the artists and the jewelry.
Thanks for checking us out and stay tuned!!!
