For bird lovers, the Outer Banks is hard to beat. This delicate chain of barrier islands is not only home to dozens of different native shorebirds, but also thousands of migrating birds who make a rest stop on the Outer Banks every year. Add to this the fact that the islands have hundreds of miles of deserted beaches, maritime forest, and marshlands for species to quietly flourish, and it's clear that the Outer Banks is literally for the birds.
Aqua walls and comfy carpeted floors greet the guests at Jewels by the Sea. The shop positively glitters from every angle with cases and displays presenting sea-inspired wearable art that is creatively designed and crafted with care. The versatile array and colors alone would drive a sane woman wild as she envisons donning everything from earrings, pendants and bracelets to rings and pins. Feast your eyes on stunning seaglass cuffs, lighthouse cut prism jewelry, handcarved Tahitian pearls and shell- and diamond- encrusted, nature-inspired jewelry. Designers hail from around the world and include local folk, as well. Denny Wong from Hawaii creates outstanding pendants and necklaces that pay homage to sealife. Imagine crabs with legs and claws that actually move and are graced with fine diamonds. Wong works in both white and yellow gold and creates intricate wearable creatures that could pass muster with a marine scientist. A baby hatchling turtle actually has moving flippers and head. Designers focus on seaside themes including islands, seahorses, sea stars, wrays, dolphins and shells. But take note - this is not a kitchy, beachy sort of place, but rather a fine art experience that presents creations by artists with a true reverence for the sea and their craft. Discover jewelry crafted from semi- and precious gems, fine gold, sterling silver, onyx, pearls, seaglass and shells. Colors light up the space from emerald green and hot pink to ruby red, purple and irridescent hues. And earthy turquoise and other natural stones find their place in the mix, too! Whether looking for the right piece for everyday - watch bands -, special events or even wedding wear - they have a selection of wedding rings - you are offered many choices. They even exhibit jewelry for little girls - earrings, crosses, necklaces and bracelets. There are so many reasons to shop here, it would take too much space to include, but what also makes Jewels by the Sea so outstanding is the warm greeting you receive and the way everything is presented. Yes, it is a dazzling experience, but the refined cases and layout of them within the spacious and sun-lit store, make simply being in the shop a worthwhile experience. This is a must-see in Avon!
