AFTER 50 YEARS, THE HOLIDAY TRADITIONS CONTINUE
The holiday season will be here before you know it and the holiday shopping season will be in full swing. For many area families a visit to The Silver Shoppe on East High Street is as much a family tradition as cutting and trimming the Christmas tree, baking and decorating cookies, and spending precious time with family and friends. These familiar traditions can seem especially important in these uncertain and busytimes. A gift created by a local craftsman will surely help make this a special and memorable Christmas for your loved one. The Silver Shoppe in Sanatoga continues to delight area shoppers with its fine collection of handcrafted sterling silver jewelry. The Silver Shoppe allows you to provide a high-quality gift for your loved one at an extremely reasonable cost.
Silversmith Uwe Bauer, proprietor of The Silver Shoppe in Sanatoga since 1972, has spent the entire year creating original jewelry using sterling silver and semi-precious stones. A collection of custom-made jewelry that is the area’s most varied and distinctive now graces the shelves and showcases of The Silver Shoppe this Christmas season. The cheery warmth of the woodstove and the friendly and personalized service will make your shopping experience in this charming shop a true delight that you will long remember.
A visit before Thanksgiving may still allow time for the creation of that “special” piece of jewelry. If you are uncertain of your plans for a gift, come in and browse and perhaps a special piece will catch your eye.
The possibilities are endless. What is certain is that you will have no trouble finding something at The Silver Shoppe for that special person on your list, whether it is your mother, daughter, wife, best friend, or your colleague from the office.
Much of the jewelry in The Silver Shoppe is enhanced by the addition of semi-precious stones. Each of the stones is unique and many are spectacular. Some of the more popular semi-precious cabochon stones Bauer uses include amethyst, onyx, turquoise, opal, jasper, garnet and jade as well as lesser know stones from the far corners of the world. He also uses a variety of brilliantly colored faceted stones, including Cape May diamonds, amethyst, and peridot, as well as synthetic emeralds, rubies and sapphires, to name a few.
While Bauer does design jewelry to fit the latest fashion trends, most of his designs are timeless in their styling. Beautiful bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings are molded into exciting swirls, scrolls and shapes, creating a look that may be rich with ornamentation or, if you prefer, elegantly simple.
Also continuing to be extremely popular are the beautifully designed necklace and earring sets created by using combinations of silver tubing, chains, beads and various semi-precious stones. These sets range from the whimsical to the sublimely elegant and appeal to a wide array of ages and tastes.
