Sassy Jewels Trunk Show

October 27, 2013

NOTE:  DUE TO FRIDAY’S RAINY WEATHER, Sassy’s trunk show has been moved to Saturday & Sunday, November 2nd & 3rd.

Connie Snellgrove, aka ‘Sassy, is back again for her ever-popular 2-day Trunk Show on November 1st and 2nd.  The Blue Giraffe is incredibly proud to exclusively represent Sassy Jewels on 30A!

Sassy is a local artist with a heart as beautiful as her creations. Her use of nature’s colors … a sparkle of sun on azure waters, sunsets, delicate flowers, silver sea life, sea oats, sand and driftwood … give a natural and real life to her unique jewelry designs.

Inspired by the beauty of our beaches and faith in God’s grace, Connie has created the most exquisite coastal jewelry on 30A! Each piece is personally designed and handcrafted using sterling silver and other metals mixed with precious gemstones such as aquamarine, coral, freshwater pearls, sea glass, and Keshi pearls.

We’re expecting perfect fall weather November 1st & 2nd. Please join us at our gallery and see all the new designs in Connie’s beautiful collection!  Saturday & Sunday, November 2nd & 3rd from 10:00 – 5:00.

South Walton Artist of the Year 2014

South Walton Artist of the Year 2014 ~ Mary Hong

Each year, Visit South Walton honors a local artist that represents the style, sophistication and scenic beauty of South Walton to bring attention to 30A’s thriving arts community. The 2014 Artist of the Year is mosaic glass artist Mary Hong!

The Blue Giraffe discovered Mary several years ago and has been carrying her work ever since. Her passion for glass and unconventional mosaic techniques has gained her notoriety in South Walton and beyond. In November, Mary will be featured in Southern France at “A One Woman Exhibition of Contemporary Art” at the Galerie Arthe in GAUJAC.

Mary has been a professional artist for more than 20 years and has been working with glass the last 13 years. She uses dimensional glass techniques to stand glass rigidly on its edge to allow light to pass through the glass while reflecting colors and textures onto a surface.

We especially enjoy Mary’s coastal color palette, unique subjects and one-of-a-kind-style. We think Mary is the perfect choice to represent the South Walton artist community and the Artists of 30A. We invite you to stop by the Blue Giraffe to see some of her latest creations.
