All things creative happen at the Silver Bonsai Gallery, a Mecca for fine art, craft and working artists. The venue is run by husband and wife designers, Kathryn and Ben Stewart. Professional goldsmiths, the Stewarts handcraft stunning rings, pendants, necklaces, bracelets and earrings with an art nouveau, Asian flair. Silver, gold and platinum stand alone or with sparkling gems to showcase fine craftsmanship, beauty and innovation.
The Stewarts gain inspiration from art history, architecture and nature. Hand etching adds grace and lyricism to their custom work, which can include engagement and wedding rings.
The gallery displays their designs as well as a variety of two-and three-dimensional art and crafts by creative folk. Choices range from hip to traditional but always illustrate impeccable craftsmanship. Shop for glassware, pottery, paintings, photography and more. Yes, bonsais are sold here and flourish in an onsite greenhouse along with the necessary accoutrements.
Silver Bonsai is a work of art inside and out with a flowing outdoor fountain, tasteful signage and beautiful fine art and crafts. Selections come in a variety of price points. The pièce de résistance…watch the Stewarts in action at the shop’s studio. Their working bench sits within view. Witness them merge history, nature and creativity to fashion original, wearable art. Silver Bonsai is open year round. Call ahead for hours.
