Trunk show treats

Baton Rouge native Ashleigh Branstetter has been creating beautiful jewelry since 1998. Next week, the New Orleans-based designer will showcase her latest wares right here in the Capital City. A trunk show is scheduled for Dec. 11, from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m., and Dec. 12, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., at the Renaissance Hotel on Bluebonnet Boulevard. Each piece is a work of art: handmade, using materials such as sterling silver, gemstones, diamonds and pearls. Find more information on the website here.
