Gladstone, the jewelry boutique and gallery in Manchester, will be hosting a trunk show with New York jewelry designer, Erica Molinari. The designer will be present to meet with attendees and preview her collection from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, September 11 and Saturday, September 12.
A former US Olympian competing in luge, Molinari made the decision to transition from full-time team athletics to pursue fine jewelry design in her late twenties. Not surprisingly, she brought the same high level of dedication to the design process and continues to investigate and master new techniques as her work evolves.
Erica draws much of her inspiration from historical jewelry, including 17th and 18th century memento mori designs. She creates emblematic double-sided charms, amulets, and padlocks in solid or mixed fine metal combinations, often embellished with diamonds. Most pieces are inscribed with inspirational quotes in Latin or Italian and are chosen for their symbolic meaning to the wearer. Followers build their personal stories, collecting and layering the pieces that resonate and inspire them most.
Explore Erica Molinari's full collection, including rings, bracelets, earrings, exquisite one-of-a kinds in semiprecious gemstones, and endless charms!
For everyone’s safety during this time, Gladstone will be limiting entrance to two attendees at a given time. All guests will be asked to wear a face covering, and the jewelry and gallery surfaces will be sanitized before and after handling.
Appointments are encouraged, but walk-ins are welcome (provided the space is not at capacity). The gallery is located at 36 ½ Union Street. To make your appointment, contact Elaine at email@example.com.
