Jewelry store popping up just a little bit longer

The Jewelry Artists of Charlotte store at Ballantyne Village, a temporary "pop-up" store we wrote about last month, is extending its stay through the Valentine's Day season. The shop, which sells jewelry and accessories from local designers, was set to close Dec. 31 but will now be open until Feb. 27, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

The store in the former Lions Jewelers location has also added about 10 more artists to its roster, bringing the number of people represented to 30.

“Jewelry Artists of Charlotte received an amazing response from shoppers and the community during the holidays,” I.C. London owner Shelly Domenech, who's managing the store, said in a news release. The Ballantyne location of her lingerie boutique is just a few doors down. “We are excited to continue to showcase jewelry by talented local designers through February.”
