What caught your eye?
Was it the sterling silver filigree atop smokey topaz dangles or the bold purple Russian Charoite pendant strung on a delicate chain of silver dotted with amethyst beads?
Meet the designs of Janice Girardi!
As a designer, I sometimes find her work hard to define. While one piece might call to someone who loves all-things-vintage,another piece speaks contemporary fashion – so sometimes I think it’s easier to describe her and her wearable works of art as…
Janice’s pieces incorporate elements of more than one particular design style -- mixing old with new…and who knows, maybe even the borrowed and most certainly the blue! Having represented this sensational designer over the years, I believe each piece has a story to tell…whether it's how the gems were curated or the emotions invoked by the pieces showcased in the shop.
Many Tastes, Many Styles
The romantics – with open hearts and admiration for the beauty in the world – admire the delicate chains, sterling filigree, and pretty little details that give many of Janice’s pieces their feminine, romantic feel. And the whimsical ones are drawn in too – delighting in unexpected details and the Bohemian features found in several of her pendants and earrings. No doubt, shoppers who appreciate handcrafted, artisan design are always eager to examine her jewelry and the one-of-a-kind pieces they know are waiting to be discovered here at Beach Treasures in Duck.
Recent additions in the shop (and online) are pieces that that will appeal to those seeking chic as well as hippie-chic. Faceted blue topaz or hand-carved mother of pearl…what inspires you? Nothing should prevent you from enjoying your personal style – and expressing it with a necklace, bracelet, or earrings. If it’s your idea of beautiful…and inspires you…it doesn't need to be in fashion to be you. The designs of Janice Girardi are creative so if you’ve not taken a peek, see if any suit your style.
You’ll find that several of our newest additions can be purchased to create “a set.” And while it’s a classic way to coordinate your look, the really great part is that you're under no obligation to wear all of the pieces together! I think it’s safe to say that the days of matchy-matchy are behind us.Beach Treasures in Duck, located exclusively on the Town of Duck’s Boardwalk on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, is proud to showcase Janice Girardi as part of our extensive collection designer jewelry.
