About Ginger-Lou's Jewelry
Welcome to Ginger-Lou's Fine Silver and Semi-Precious Jewelry Studio!
Ginger-Lou works in fine silver (99.9% pure silver), sterling silver, semi-precious stone beads, Swarovski crystals, Czech glass bead and other natural materials. Custom orders are her specialty (where customers tell her a particular semi-precious stone or color theme and she designs the jewelry piece). Bohemian or uptown, Ginger-Lou can design a custom piece of jewelry for the woman in your life. Prices for Ginger-Lou's Fine Silver and Semi-Precious jewelry start at $35.
Ginger-Lou is a Certified Instructor of Art Clay Silver.
Ginger-Lou's Diffuser Necklaces marry art with practicality! They are more than just jewelry decoration. A couple of drops of your favorite essential oil and you'll be good to go for many hours, surrounded by wondrous aromas. They come in several designs and colors and begin at only $10 (what a deal!). Each comes with an adjustable, waxed cotton cord and complete instructions. The Diffuser Necklaces that have added color are a bit more expensive because they must go through several processes and firings. The color is fired onto the pendant and will never come off. All Diffuser Necklaces are unglazed, making them the perfect receiver surface to quickly absorb and diffuse essential oils.
About Ginger-Lou's ClayArt
Welcome to Ginger-Lou's imaginative world of ClayArt!
Each ClayArt piece is meticulously hand-ormed from porcelain, terracotta or earthen clays by the artist. No molds are ever used. Each design is a Ginger-Lou original (and is copyrighted). Since every ClayArt piece is hand-formed, each one is totally unique, with variations in form, color and style. All ClayArt is fired a minimum of three times at varying temperatures with glazes applied in-between firings. A small inventory of some of the art pieces is kept at Ginger-Lou's home studio, but most of the time (certainly on all personalized and custom orders) the art is created after the order is placed. Size, thickness and complexity determine the length of time it will take to ship the ClayArt. Ginger-Lou can give you an approximate ship date when the order is placed, however. The most important thing to remember is that creating art in clay can be a lengthy process, so please plan well in advance of when you need to have your order! Ginger-Lou offers a wide selection of ClayArt in all price ranges, making "real art" affordable and available to all.
Ginger-Lou's Cattitudes capture the essence of feline personality! Choose from the selection displayed or have your favorite cat immortalized with a personalized Cattitude. Cattitudes start at $28.
Ginger-Lou's Tortured, Battered, Injured and Broken Heart is a beautiful expression with a poignant message. They contain actual vintage nails and screws and have tears and holes that are laced with wire which often entraps an organic artifact of some sort in its tangle. Is there someone you know who has a broken heart? These make excellent bereavement gifts and can be personalized upon request. Broken Hearts start at $38.
Words often used to describe Ginger-Lou's ClayArt and Jewelry are "avant garde, primitive modern, whimsical, profoundly straight-on, clever, cutting edge..." Ginger-Lou's ClayArt and Jewelry have all the elements of a handformed work of art, which, among many other things, means all shapes are "organic." An "organic circle" would be one that's approximate and not exact. If you're looking for straight lines and perfection, this is not the site for you. But if you're looking for art that embodies interesting, imperfect informational markings of real life and subtleties in color variations, you've reached your destination. Each and every ClayArt and Jewelry piece created by the artist bears artful evidence of being handled by a master artist. No two pieces are every exactly alike.
Ginger-Lou works from her home studio just south of Atlanta, Georgia, and has a wide customer base from her many years of teaching and creating art.
