Owner Barb GrOb's 1st shop was The Wave Gallery, opened on May 1st, 1999- the birthplace of the ART SLUT brand & representative of hundreds of artists until she sold it after 7 yrs. Later, there was The ART BAR- a gallery & performance space & a few other ventures but it's all come full circle!
Now, on Fleming St. for more than 10yrs & after more than 20 years in business in Key West... **VOILA'!**
FINALLY! ...Overnight Success'!
"I found a meteorite, when I was about 6yrs old & have been a rock nerd, ever since. I started making jewelry as small sculptures at about 18. Add to that, a lifetime of working in The Arts, at art schools, as a sculptress & muralist, gallery owner...
Jewelry is tiny sculptures of Earth Science, that make people FEEL GOOD & let's face it- Jewelry is The Perfect Gift. It always fits, easily ships & won't go to the hips! So, everybody's a WINNER!"
