Lorrie Mason has showcased handmade jewelry in art festivals around the state for the past 10 years.
Recently, she made the decision to stop traveling as much and to open a storefront, On the Fringe located at 3646 Henderson Blvd.
"I had a push cart on Franklin St. when I was in college at USF where I majored in psychology and then I worked as a social worker until I was 40," Mason said. "Then I returned back to my passion for making art jewelry."
On the Fringe is full of Mason's metal jewelry as well as scarves, hand bags and women's boutique clothing.
"My jewelry is romantic industrial. It captures the edgy person and a little bit of glam. I use reclaimed steel nails and its adorned with gold and faceted stones," Mason said.
In addition to her own designs, Art Tart Jewelry and Clothing currently has a pop up shop set up in the store for several months.
Mason stumbled across the South Tampa location while at her art studio inside the Santaella Studios Cigar Factory.
"I saw an opportunity for a storefront and took the opportunity to branch out."
Now, she has transformed the storefront to give it a bohemian feel.
On the Fringe opened on Small Business Saturday but will host a grand opening on Dec. 8 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
