Empty Nest is a petite gallery and studio with a whole lot of class. It is beautifully designed and filled with the art of Crystal Blackmon and other artisans. Crystal is the resident artist and is a jack of all trades. She fashions jewelry onsite and also is a painter, photographer and displays her charcoal drawings, as well. She works as a silversmith and does precious metal clay, resin and bead work. She handcrafts lovely pieces of jewelry including fabulous shell-in-resin bracelets that are divine. Immortalizing local shells in resin makes the perfect vacation keepsake! Crystal also casts shells in metal to make lovely pendants. She works with precious metal clay to form pendants that she accents with beads. Enjoy viewing gifts such as decoys and bird houses as well as a collection of real whelks for sale on her porch. This is a must-see seaside stop with nautical flair and lots of wearable art choices including earrings, cuffs and necklaces!
