Family lured Jerrianne and her husband to South Milwaukee in 2002 from Southern California where she worked as, first, a journalist, then, as a court information officer. She now stays busy with media-relations consulting, playing with her three grandchildren (part of the lure), writing, discovering her new environs, and hoping her garden will produce before the first fall frost.
|Studio 915 First Annual pre-Christmas Jewelry Sale|
|Saturday, December 17 at 11:00am|
|Location: Studio 915|
With Christmas still more than a week away, Saturday, Dec. 17, is a great time to pick up a special gift for that special someone, support the arts and shop local all at the same time.
South Milwaukee's new art gallery, Studio 915, at 915 (what else?) Milwaukee Avenue (just a few doors west of Azteca and on the same side of the street) is having what gallery owners Joe and Dawn Mader say is the first of an annual event -- a pre-Christmas Jewelry Sale.
Doors open at 11 a.m. and the sale goes on 'til 3 p.m.
I've already done my Christmas shopping there. Got a fantastic onyx-and-copper necklace and matching earrings for my sister and terrific sliver Celtic earrings for a special Irish-dancing girlfriend. All custom made by jewelry artesians.
More details about Saturday's sale the gallery are here http://southmilwaukeeblog.com/2011/12/15/special-event-at-studio-915-on-saturday/ at South Milwaukee Alderman Erik Brook's South Milwaukee Blog. And you can get a preview of the many exquisite items, a number very reasonably priced, at Studio 915's website, www.studio915.com.
Hope to see you there on Saturday!
