Molly Sharp ain’t just stringin’ beads. The Dallas artist and expert gemologist studied goldsmithing in Portland, lapidary design in Taos, and advanced metalsmithing in Nacogdoches. Her jewelry is her passion, and now she’s taking her showroom – quite literally – on the road. The Silver Soul represents the culmination of Sharp’s dedication and training, and it’s no coincidence that the boutique, in itself, symbolizes an artistic journey. Housed in a 1966 Airstream Safari travel trailer, the new shop-on-wheels came to fruition through a three-year period of hard work and personal evolution. In Sharp’s own words, “The Silver Soul was to see an engagement, a wedding, the birth of a baby boy, countless hours of work in the Texas heat, designs and design changes, hundreds of hardware store runs, plan revisions, carpentry lessons, and of course, blood, sweat, and tears." In its final form, The Silver Soul is a light-filled bohemian chic studio and boutique. Set against a backdrop of colorful textiles, international souvenirs, and gilded mirrors, Sharp’s handcrafted designs will appeal to those who “cherish the value and meaning of life.” The Silver Soul.
