January 2018 Business of the Month: Silver Bonsai
We congratulate Kathryn & Ben Stewart of Silver Bonsai Gallery for being selected as our January 2018 Business of the Month Winner.
Silver Bonsai is the joint creation of Kathryn & Ben Stewart. You can find them at their jewelers benches located at the back of the gallery where they create custom jewelry in gold, silver or platinum.
Upon graduation from Savannah College of Art and Design in 1995, Ben & Kathryn went into business together showing jewelry throughout the country at craft fairs and galleries. In 1998 they settled in the Outer Banks of North Carolina where they began renovating the building which is now home of the Silver Bonsai Gallery. The gallery is a reflection of the couple's unique sense of style in art and design. Not only does the gallery house their uniquely hand crafted jewelry, but is also home to a wide variety of local and regional arts and crafts, and an impressive collection of Bonsai trees and supply.
