Small Business Saturday Goes Nano

Here at People's Pottery, we're thinking small. Not just because it's Small Business Saturday -- a day to support family-owned businesses like ours -- but because we're excited to unveil an incredible breakthrough that originated right here in Rochester.

NanoRosetta is the blending of beautiful jewelry with laser technology. This extraordinary wearable time capsule will hold your sentiments, memories and photos -- anything, really -- on a medallion that will last 10,000 years. That's 300 generations! No fading colors, no ripped pages: just precious memories laser-etched on a medallion that's readable to the human eye, with infinite richness of detail.

Pendant, necklace, ring, keychain, bracelet, cuff links, money clip -- choose the piece and we will handle the rest.

This will be your personal keepsake, or the most unique gift you have ever given. Our pre-designed medallions start at just $50.

If you are local, please stop in this weekend to see our display case in the store. We can assure you, you have never seen anything like this before.

This keepsake jewelry is beautiful, inside and out.

We're thankful for...

First of all, we're grateful for the spell of mild, sunny weather we're enjoying in Rochester right now. If we were a child, we'd slip into our TwirlyGirl dresses and spin around under the beautiful foliage and bright skies.

Second of all, we're excited that our vibrant arts community continues to pulse! Next week, artist Romero Britto will visit the Nan Miller Gallery, just across Monroe Avenue from our store, to meet his fans and exhibit his work. If you can't quite afford a painting or sculpture right now--how about one of our Britto mugs, bears, or totes? Britto's unmistakable, signature geometric patterns with primary colors are the perfect antidote to winter grays and blues. In the kitchen or spotted at Wegmans, they're bursting with joy -- and so are we.

This time of year should remain spirited, not stressful; joyous, not a "struggle to juggle." And we are here to help. When you stop into the store, we will spend time with you to select the perfect piece of jewelry, hostess gift, accent piece, or keepsake for your grandchildren. 

We wrap gifts divinely, and we ship around the world. We also have our online store for you and all your far-flung friends and family to browse. New on is the chance to build your custom Mi Moneda piece completely on-line!

You can have fun with this...we promise! 

Keep the happy times coming; we'll provide the perfect presents to commemorate them. See you soon!
