Support Local, Buy This Killer Quartz Spike Necklace

Over the weekend, we stumbled upon a local art festival in the Design District. Apparently, it was the Rendezvous with Fire and Art! fair. (I think they need to do a little PR work next time–not much of a crowd.) In any case, I wandered into the tent of local artist Elle Schuster and fell in love with a spiky “arrow” quartz crystal necklace. I regret not snapping a photo, but her “spear” version (see above) is pretty similar. As it turns out, Elle’s a multiplatform artist, too. Photographer, photo illustrator, and photo sculptor are a few of the hats she wears, so it’s no surprise her necklaces resemble wearable sculptures. Find a selection of her jewelry at the Dallas Museum of Art Gift Shop and the Meadows Museum Shop and her one-of-kind pieces online at Elle Studio.
