Since 2015, Embellish Asheville has featured handmade, modern jewelry, beautiful bags, a thoughtful apothecary section as well as other accessories and gifts. You won’t find brand names here, our makers and designers are small and independent, like us. We know them, we have relationships with them and we wouldn’t do it any other way.
We’re firm in our belief that jewelry and gifts don’t need to cost hundreds of dollars to be beautiful or unique. Nor do they need to come from a big box store to be affordable. We’ve struck that balance for you; we hope you enjoy it.
Proudly woman-owned and operated, you’ll find our small and dedicated team in downtown Asheville at 59 Broadway Street in the historic Sinclair Building.
The Roberto Coin brand was born in 1996. Its founder, with whom it shares its name, driven by the innate love for the world of art and fashion, decided to leave his successful career as a hotelier to follow a dream and face a new and passionate adventure.
His creativity took shape through the hands of the historical and most renowned Italian jewelry artisans, who brought Roberto Coin’s romantic and borderless imagination to life through their skills, telling his story through jewels that truly become works of art.
The Southern Highland Craft Guild has been shaping the creative economy for 90 years. Exhibiting handmade crafts of North Carolina and the Southeast, the Guild cultivates commerce for craftspeople in the Appalachian regions with four retail locations and an online shop. Today, it is one of the strongest craft organizations in the country--representing just over 800 makers in 293 counties from nine states, hosting 5 educational events and two Craft Fairs each year. What started as a network of the area’s creativity and arts to boost income for craftspeople during the Great Depression, has become an iconic fixture of the craft revival movement.

Here you will find one of the best collections of hand made jewelry in the area plus fine handcrafts and fine art. From the whimsical to stunning fine jewelry, Miya has become a real gem in the gallery/art scene of Western North Carolina.
