What makes it a Rhody Gem?

In addition to pottery, stained glass, sea glass art, custom dichroic, cane and gemstone jewelry, hand-sewn bags and specialty children’s gifts, there’s photography art and greeting cards, calligraphy scribe, fine woodworkers, woodturning, and reclaimed wood gifts. The shop also features South County’s best curated book collection along with fine Newport Island style apparel at bargain basement pricing. “All under one roof!” says owner Diana B. Christie.
