Wear a little bit of Island

Artist Tony Guyther of Vineyard Haven is using bits of sand and seashells in his new designs. One is a circular pendant with a shell on a sandy base. The pendant hangs from a black cord decorated with a few beads. The other design uses shells on a keychain with Martha's Vineyard added in collage fashion. Mr. Guyther's work always includes a bit of collage and a lot of whimsy.

For more information or to order from Mr. Guyther, call 508-693-8629. You may also contact him the old fashioned way via the U.S. Mail at 237 State Road, Vineyard Haven, MA 02568.
