One of a Kind Finds at Athalia of Newport

February 9, 2016 at 2:19 pm Leave a comment


Newport has a long legacy of being called “home” by great artisans. Last year, Emily Athalia Hirsch joined the ranks among the city’s talented jewelers when she opened Athalia of Newport at 26 Franklin Street. Appearing at craft shows throughout New England and beyond for more than a decade, the talented artisan decided it was time to establish a home base with her own shop where she could handcraft unique, never duplicated pieces made from sterling 12439340_10153330631631129_543726291434093801_nsilver, semi-precious stones, glass and vintage finds. “I wanted to bring an all handmade shop to Newport that would showcase some of my favorite artisans,” says Emily. “Besides my one of a kind pieces, you can find photography,  pottery, scarves, purses, stationary, soaps and lotions, coasters, mobiles, and candles. Every item in the shop is handcrafted. We have $6 soaps up to $600 necklaces.”

With the one year anniversary of her opening i sight, it’s clear Emily has been settling in just fine.”I love being on Franklin Street because of the history, the beauty, the central location and my wonderful neighbors!” she says. “We all work together to support one another. The quality on the street is outstanding, antiques, handmade glass, clothing and other beautiful products.”

This coming weekend, Athalia of Newport will be one of dozens of local and regional artisans at the 2016 Festival of the Arts which will be held Sat., February 13th from 10-5pm in the Newport Marriott. The fabulous Curated, located in Tiverton, is producing the event which is part of the Newport Winter Festival.
