Two talented neighborhood jewelers are having a pre-Mother's Day Sale on Saturday. Get your henna tattoo, munch on homemade chocolates, and shop for Mother's Day. The bracelet in the poster is one of Christiane Danna's sculptural design; the earrings were created by Jennifer Walker who was featured on this blog last week.
