This month is all about amor – and nothing says “I love you” quite like the whimsical locally-made findings at Carlyn & Company (205 Washington Ave in Grand Haven). The boutique showcases a vast variety of eco-friendly, fair trade and handmade products. From delicate hand-blown glass figurines to colorful handbags crafted from recycled materials to several collections of fabulous jewelry, the shop houses something for everyone.
Among the jewelry collections shimmering under the shop’s glass counter, you’ll find a line of necklaces and matching earrings by Chicago artist Etta Kostick. A true master of her craft, Kostick pushes the limits of jewelry-making by playing with textures, colors and materials and their relationship to light. Her contemporary line Unearth Curiosity has quickly become one of the best selling collections featured at Carlyn & Company; included in the line are these unique stained glass and metal bubble top necklaces and earrings. Surprise the one you love most this Valentine’s Day with one of these breathtaking statement pieces, available in red, green, yellow, blue and brown.
