Best Art/Artisan Jewelry

Obsidian Gallery

You may not find the Maltese Falcon here, but you can scarf up all kinds of treasures, from handmade jewelry to ceramics to glass art. Elouise Rusk has presided over this St. Philip's Plaza shop for years, stocking its cases with one-of-a-kind craft pieces by a whole tribe of artisans and craftspeople. Mother-daughter collaborators Betty Harris and Martha Sue Harris, for instance, team up on bracelets that line up tiny watercolors side by side with semiprecious jewels. At the same time, Rusk is committed to displaying the work of local fine artists on the walls, from Claire Campbell Park's luminous weavings to Eriks Rudans' pungent paintings.
