Abracadabra is Going Live!

. August 6, 2020.

A family-owned and operated full-service jeweler operating in downtown Ann Arbor since 1974, Abracadabra Jewelry specializes in on-site custom design + production, repair, and appraisal. Alongside their own work, they also feature jewelry made by local artists, exclusive national designers, and fair-trade international artisans. 

Join Abra tomorrow, August 7th, at 4pm via IG Live @abrajewelry for a virtual Meet the Maker event with Brittany Turner of Cheyanne Symone.

“I started Cheyanne Symone in 2018 when I saw a need for high quality and sustainable indigenous style beaded earrings that were versatile enough to be worn every day in a professional work environment and yet bold enough to make a statement. Cheyanne Symone is a combination of my identity as an indigenous woman, environmental/energy scientist, and artist.” – Brittany Turner, Cheyanne Symone Founder

Ypsilanti, MI-based Cheyanne Symone is woman-owned + operated with founder Brittany Turner at the helm of an incredible team. Hailing from Holister, North Carolina, Brittany is a member of the Haliwa-Saponi Tribe – people of the red earth. Using responsibly sourced materials, each piece is meticulously handcrafted using traditional beading techniques and takes up to 8 hours to create.

Tune in for a studio tour, demo, and a glimpse of their latest collection. See the full collection here.

Recording can be viewed on their Youtube, along with the rest of the Meet the Maker series, for those that aren’t able to attend.
