There's plenty to buy at this earthy-meets-glam boutique with huge windows that let the sunshine in and high walls displaying large canvases painted by owner Glenn Bradford's wife, Sharyne, a fine artist.
Bradford is a spiritual sort who is more than happy to take customers on a sentimental journey via jewelry. Lockets of his own design tell a grandmother's story in tiny letters, or a charming bracelet marks the birth date of a child.
His signature logo, a graceful swirl, which he often uses as a clasp, represents "forever," and his specialty is the reinvention of old jewelry. He delights in magically transforming an outré piece into something spectacular.
