“Fine Lake Superior North Shore Jewelry Design”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

If you are traveling to or from Duluth, MN, along the north shore of Lake Superior, you have to stop at B E Nelson Silversmith, owned by artist Brad Nelson. his shop is located in an authentically built Norwegian Stabbur just south of Two Rivers on Old Scenic Road. His original jewelry design honors his nordic heritage while incorporating contemporary styling. Brad loves to include natural elements into his traditional silversmithing techniques. Every time I stop through his shop, Brad is creatively developing some new design. If you are looking for a unque gift, I highly recommend viewing Brad's work!

“An old soul, authentic artist and unique shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

Nothing "made in China" found in this shop. Instead, you'll find local and Scandinavian folk art as well as Brad Nelson's stunning jewelry. Brad honors ancient designs, but puts his personal touch on his work, making it contemporary and still authentic to his Scandinavian roots. He supports local artists, potters, woodcarvers, knitters and also has Scandinavian imports you won't find in other stores. It's a cultural experience! How does he fit so much into his shop?

“Fun Shop!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

Brad's creativity and expertise with silver and gold are incredible. The prices on his artwork are extremely reasonable. His whole compound of buildings is so charming. They were constructed by Brad and he carved all the architectural embellishments as well. Adding to this ambiance is his friendly and helpful demeanor. A great stop for your North Shore travels.
