I'm writing from the beautiful jewelry studio of my friend Emily Shaffer here in Maine. I first met Emily when we were both doing ArtRider shows in the greater New York City area. We probably met at Lyndhurst, if not Rhinebeck, NY? Her work is so architectural and elegant with a modern, clean vibe that it's hard not to want to touch her pieces and try them on and keep them forever. The nice thing is she works with a lot of Argentium Silver, which is a nice material that is nickel free and has a higher content of sterling silver.
