Designer Spotlight: Jewelry Studio of Wellfleet

I spend a good portion of the summer on the Outer Cape. There’s a lot of good here—beaches, oysters, artists—but not a lot in the way of good shopping. Nantucket it’s not. There are a few treasures though, including the Jewelry Studio of Wellfleet, owned by the very lovely local artisan Jesse Horowtiz. (I featured her sister Neile Horowitz’s Cape Cod silhouette necklaces in the Boston Globe this time last year.)

The shop, a charming green clapboard building in “downtown” Wellfleet, a former artist’s studio, showcases the work of about a dozen artisans of Cape Cod jewelry. Jesse Horowtiz’s pieces, which she hand forges, hammers, and casts (from real life treasures found on the flats) in the on site  studio, includes representational tokens of area beaches as well as more abstract but still sea-inspired works. Lyrical and beautiful, never kitschy.

Stop in if you’re out that way and if not, Horowitz has a few pieces of her Cape Cod jewelry available in her Etsy shop.

Shell cast in gold. I think she should sell these as individual talismans.
