Today we're visiting Metalicious! This handmade jewelry is very contemporary in design. This artisan has developed several signature lines, producing rings, pendants and earrings in a matching style.

The styles offered here are beautiful and will look great with just about anything you wear. There are all metal designs and pieces that feature gemstones. The jewelry in the popular Modern Rock Collection is truly unique and different - because the gemstones are metal!

The entire line is amazing ... pendants like the Modern Rock- Pink Emerald and earrings like the Sterling Square Brilliant studs are simply gorgeous and just fun to wear! I love the jewelry in the Bubbles Collection! The Bubble earrings are very cool ... and that's just a start. This design can be very elegant ... check out the Champagne necklace in sterling and blue topaz! The Bubble hoops are just so different ... and the Goddess earrings are stunning!
