Homemade Handcrafted Artisan Jewelry For Every Outfit

  • August 7, 2011 8:45 AM

Until about a decade ago, we used to believe that without any doubt,  only jewelry which was created of gold, diamonds and pearls is considered  jewelry forever. I myself used to think of it that way, until I discovered the world of handmade art jewelry  created from  other materials.

Nowadays, more and more celebrities appear in public with impressive handcrafted artisan jewelry items which have been created with sterling silver, or a combination of other metals, with free form natural stones, or beach glass.

It seems that the latest trend in Jewelry today is the kind  which has been created in an artist’s workshop- handmade jewelry. It is true that many artists still craft jewelry from gold diamonds and pearls, but one has to pay an enourmous amount of money for these items, while if the same artist uses Sterling silver combined with other metals, natural free form stones  and such, and his art is much more affordable, but not less unique!

Today, more and more people are interested in a variety of natural stones , and an endless line of crystals in a long row of shapes  forms and colors.

You can match with an outfit an unusual necklace , or just a single stone silver pendant on a silver chain, with or without   ear posts or studs when you are in a more sportive- like mood, or long silver drop earrings which reach below your jaw line ,with a cocktail dress in the evening.

Finally – when you can match various affordable items with your wardrobe, you will be representing  a trendy and classy lady, who will have heads turned when she is around.

The jewelry examples you will find in the post come from my own workshop of artisan crafted jewelry.

I posted this ring yesterday in my Etsy shop . The Turquoise and Aqua Marine coloured beach glass was set by me in a ring which I designed and created from Sterling silver. I set the bezel in the shape of a large tear-drop and fitted the beach glass into it.

After creating the ring from Sterling Silver I soldered 6 tiny 14k gold balls on both sides of the bezel. (3 from each side).
When I finished setting the piece of Sea glass into the bezel,I Oxidized it and gave it a matt finish.

Size of the ring: US size 7.5.
Size of the beach glass: about 2.5cm x 2cm
Max. thickness of the glass : about 11mm
