Put-in-Bay is brimming with local artists and artisans of all kinds. Their unique talents really make South Bass Island a very special destination. Jessie Green is a shining example of that with her business, Jessie’s Jewelry.
Jessie’s Jewelry Details
Her sweet little boutique is located at The Keys restaurant, right on the harbor and next to the Jet Express Ferry Terminal. She makes each piece by hand with the help of her entire family.
Jessie personally finds each stone during the winter months of the island. Her father then cuts and carves each stone, carefully polishing them to perfection. Next, her mother creates soft and delicate crocheted lines while Jessie designs each and every item. Each piece is singular.
Jessie’s Jewelry Sample Pieces
• Monument Pendants
• Pendants that combine different types of stone for a truly unique look
• Natural Free Form Pieces such as rings and pendants shaped like birds
Each piece embodies the soul of the island. These are perfect gifts from someone who really loves Put-in-Bay as well as a token for a friend who has never been. Of course, they also make a great gift for yourself. Jessie also accepts custom orders, which can take up to two months, but the best things are always worth the wait.
Take a little part of the island home with you to treasure all year round. No matter who is lucky enough to receive a piece of Jessie’s Jewelry, this is a wonderful way to support the arts on Put-in-Bay.
