Norman1

Drawn to the arts, English Norman had designs on becoming an architect at the University of Virginia. Then her major and focus shifted. Years after graduation and work in another field, Norman recognized her calling: to design and create something with her hands. She threw herself into a vigorous study of silversmithing.

In 1997, inspired by her love of color, texture and design, the Atlanta mother of three started ESN Artisan Jewelry.

Norman’s personalized bangles and necklaces are must-haves for moms. The sleek silver or silver with 18K gold dot bangles feature children’s names and birthdates. Each (by the letter/spell it out) character is individually stamped, resulting in a piece that is uniquely charming in its simplicity and imperfection.

The handcrafted bangles also make meaningful bridesmaid gifts. Also popular are Norman’s various, party-ready collections of sculptural earrings, often accented with semi-precious stones.

Necklaces are $75 to $350. Bracelets and bangles run $65 to $325. Earrings range from $45 to $95.

In the Atlanta area, find Norman’s jewelry at the Raiford Gallery, 1169 Canton Road, in Roswell (raifordgallery.com) and the Frolic Boutique, 3802 Roswell Road, (frolicboutique.com). Also check www.englishnorman.com
