Robinson on LuxeYard

Robyne Robinson's line of ROX Jewelry has been picked up by Like Gilt, LuxeYard is basically a members-only e-retailer that sells high-end home decor, jewelry, clothing and furniture at a discount, differing from the rest by incorporating a concierge service. The TV-news-anchor-turned-jewelry-designer is offering some of her boldest, most colorful one-of-a-kind, handmade pieces on the site, ranging from a stunning necklace of antique coconut, dyed horn, glass and bone for $430 to earrings of tourmaline and vintage coins for $25.

Jennifer Merchant trunk show

Metalsmith Jennifer Merchant was looking for an affordable alternative to jewelry making, and found it in magazines -- literally. Using her own method of layering magazine clippings with clear acrylic and rhinestone gems, Merchant developed a bold, colorful and eclectic look. It's jewelry's answer to collage art, so it's fitting that her work is being sold in a gallery setting Saturday. Merchant will show off her latest collection of necklaces, earrings and stackable bracelets and rings at a trunk show at St. Paul's Grand Hand Gallery.
