The North Country Arts Council’s (NCAC) Art on the Square prides themselves on providing a place for a wide array of artists to display their works.
Hope Marshall, membership director for NCAC, says that the artisan jewelry featured at Art on the Square, located in downtown Watertown, is some of their biggest sellers.
“The main selling point for the jewelry is that is it one of a kind, it’s unique,” said Marshall.
Marshall says that many customers enjoy the NCAC’s jewelry due to the handcrafted quality and the availability to work with artists on custom pieces.
Currently there are about 10 different jewelry artists works displayed at the gallery.
Works range from glass earrings to hand pounded sterling silver. A special feature is their found and recycled object jewelry. Potsdam artist, Sara Lynch, uses ceramic beading and random objects such as shells and sea glass, in her earrings, necklaces and bracelets.
