You Can Never Have Enough Handcrafted Jewelry

November 30, 2013

You can never have enough jewelry. And you can never go wrong with a piece that is designed and made by hand. NYCreates’ Holiday Art and Craft Fair is one place where you can find brilliant statement pieces or more delicate designs, and everything in between to suit anyone’s personal style.

Meeting the person who made each piece of jewelry with their own hands makes them that much more special as a gift for someone special or for yourself.

The Holiday Market runs through Sunday, December 1 in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Click here for directions.
