charmed and dangerous baubles
Having had an office in Chelsea for 15 years, I tap into Union Square's green market and annual Holiday Market regularly. There's a booth that may interest the bauble buyer or book-mark buyer in you. If you can't get to the square, the artist who designs these items also peddles her wares online. Sally Dane, the designer, has created a line of sweet-meets-hip, vintage-inspired charm necklaces and earrings using semi-precious stones and gold-filled chains, and priced most of the items in the $25-40 range.
Turns out she her husband Michael started Hookmarks, several years ago, and she just returned to her love of jewelry-making with the launch of charmed and dangerous this year.
Charmed & Dangerous will be at the Union Square Holiday Market from now, to December 24th: Mon-Fri, 11a-8p; Sat, 10a-8p; Sun, 11a-7p. The Market closes will close at 4p on Christmas Eve. Dane's creations are wildly popular, so move quickly if you don't want to be disappointed. And here's a plus -- her custom-designed gift boxes don't need to be gift wrapped. how charming and practical. /m
