Well timed, the weekend before Mother's Day, the Walker Jewelry Artist Mart showcases original, handcrafted jewelry by more than 25 local and regional designers. I love this event, and not just because I'm always shopping for the next bangle. Many of the designers attend, so you get to learn the inpiration behind each piece, and how it was made, which makes it that much more special. The Jewelry Mart includes such a wide range of styles, prices, and materials, you'll be hardpressed to leave empty handed. Consider that a benefit, or a warning. Saturday, May 3, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (10 a.m. preview for Walker members), Walker Art Center, 1750 Hennepin Ave., Mpls.
