Beyond the Sea Gallery-Café, 74 Main St., will host a pink champagne reception and trunk show of Mimi Steadman Fine Jewelry during BelfastArts First Friday gallery walk Friday, June 3 from 5 to 8 p.m. The trunk show will continue Saturday, June 4 from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Everyone is invited to view Steadman’s  jewelry and make purchases during the First Friday pink champagne reception, which will feature complementary fare. Steadman designs and fashions all of her stylish and timeless pieces by hand, combining the finest quality 14-karat gold fill or sterling silver with semi-precious stones and/or freshwater pearls.

In addition to a large selection of one-of-a-kind necklaces and earrings, she offers several ever-popular styles including the solitaire South Seas Shell Pearl choker necklace and a long chain enhanced by semi-precious stones, which can be worn long or doubled up as a shorter necklace; worn as a multi-wrap bracelet; or even as a belt. Steadman also offers a collection of seaglass pendants wrapped with pearls or semi-precious stones.

New this year is a line of beautifully hammered sterling or gold-fill hoop earrings and pendants featuring pearls or semi-precious stones in the center. Steadman often creates custom jewelry for clients, and takes special pleasure in working closely with brides to design special pieces to complement their style and match a wedding’s colors and bridesmaids’ dresses.

A sampling of these classic designs may be previewed at For more information about the gallery reception and trunk show, call 338-2100.
