Co- owner of Gem Gem, Allison Bartline makes her bold sterling silver pieces in the small studio behind the store. Each sculptural piece is hand carved, hand cast, hand finished and made to be worn for many years to come. She is inspired by mankind’s early interpretations of the natural world and the fear, worship or desire to control it.
