Spotlight on Artisans




Featured Shop – Village Goldsmith Gallery, DoverNow over a year in a new location, this slender gallery is stuffed with the colorful talents of local artists including distinctive work by goldsmith (and owner) Jim Livermore. Known for custom work and intricate detail to jewelry (the signature trellis bail), Livermore has graciously given some of the spotlight over to other local artisans. Look for pottery, glass and other mediums. The lamps by potter Doug Blum are exquisite and affordable.www.jimlivermoredesigns.com (603) 742-5230 453 Central Ave., DoverWhat's NewDe ja vu Consignment ShopLooking for a designer spring sweater for a song?
