New Kid on the Block:
Lee Jewelers, which was established in 1965, moved back to Southampton village from Sag Harbor earlier this year. It’s a family affair—mom Terry Elliot creates intricate wire wrappings of precious metal and gemstones, and her own line of beaded and wire-wrapped gemstone jewelry. Daughter Dori takes each piece of jewelry she creates very personally and continues to practice and perfect her delicate, intricate wire wrapping work. Dori and her father Lee Elliot often design pieces together, sometimes collaborating Lee’s hammered metal circles with Dori’s wire-wrapped gemstones. Look for extraordinary, original designs at 16 Windmill Lane. 631-283-1231,
