Need Bling? Shop Local for Jewelry in Delaware

blingREV_010317I thought that I would share with you some of my favorite local jewelry designers located right here in Delaware.

Most of them I have bought from on multiple occasions and their pieces are ones I wear again and again. I have never been one for regular jewelry store jewelry, except for my wedding and engagement rings of course. What used to be called costume jewelry is now recognized as the art it truly is, and I find the pieces created by artists such as these to be far more creative – Here are my favorite designers for jewelry in Delaware.
