call of the wild

May 7, 2014



Atlanta’s Sarah Carter Hovis and Sally Carter Evans Hovis love all things wild and exotic in nature.

But when the mother-daughter team couldn’t find jewelry that mixed those elements with sophisticated details, they created their own distinctive jewelry line: S. Carter Designs.

In their studio in North Buckhead, the design partners use a wide range of natural materials — often embellished with pave diamonds set in sterling silver and 14K gold — to create each bold, handcrafted piece. Alligator teeth, deer burrs and arrowheads are used. So are sharks teeth, petrified wood and mother of pearl.

Big sellers include snake vertebrae necklaces with diamonds, boar tusk necklaces (no diamonds) and long pyrite necklaces with a variety of pendant options.

Prices range from $195 to $9,000.

In the Atlanta area, find S. Carter Designs at Rebecca Boutique, 3211 Cains Hill Place; Tassels, 3802 Roswell Road and B. D. Jeffries. 3736-B Roswell Road (all three are also on facebook).
