Merz uses authentic sea or beach glass and her metal working skills to create one-of-a-kind jewelry with a distinctive flair.

Riverside Artisans will host a reception, free to the public, in the shop to celebrate Merz’s selection on November 24 from 2 to 4 p.m., during Small Business Saturday.

All the community is invited to stop in to meet Merz and see her work.

She is the owner and maker at Kristy Jane, a line of unique jewelry and artful things that are sea-inspired and truly one-of-a kind.

She creates each piece from authentic sea or beach glass, hand-picked from the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and our own Lake Ontario.

She uses her metal smithing skills to create her fine pieces with sterling silver or copper.

To honor Merz as November’s Artist of the Month, Riverside Artisans is holding a free drawing for her jewelry.

Just stop by the shop at 191 W. First St. in Oswego to fill out a raffle ticket to register for the drawing at the end of the month.

No purchase is necessary.

The winner will be notified at the end of November.
