Andrew Thornton of Allegory Gallery creates handmade jewelry, jewelry components and unique art at his studio in Ligonier, Pennsylvania.
“We are a creative space that’s one part bead store, one part jewelry boutique, one part fine art gallery, and one part gift shop. The aim of Allegory Gallery is to promote artisan craftspeople, inspire the community to explore their creativity, and act as a focal point for classes and artistic education in the area.”
Andrew is donating in everything pictured above valued over $64 which is composed of vintage seed beads, vintage glass, serpentine, hand-dyed silk, Czech glass, red agate chip, deer skin lace, waxed linen, a polymer clay pendant by Andrew Thornton, and one of our Fiber Cards. The cards include a mixed assortment of four strands that are three meters long. They are perfect for kumihimo projects, adding fiber embellishments, or adding a little bohemian flair to your next jewelry project.
Emily Hoffman-Sperry creates ceramic beads, buttons, pendants, and essential oil diffusers. Along with making her own components, Emily also makes wonderful jewelry. She creates one of a kind jewelry using everything from vintage celluloid gumball charms, sea glass, collectible vintage buttons, antique skeleton keys, and crystal, to precious stones. All of this fabulous creativity happens in her Norton Shores, Michigan studio.
Emily is donating beads and components valued at $50 for the Monthly Recap winner.
