Unique Affordable Handcrafted Jewelry
Created with Love at DesignsbyCher

For those who appreciate truly handmade jewelry, DesignsbyCher is just the kind of shop they look for. The items offered by this designer are truly artisan made; many of the clasps and earwires used are hand forged by this jewelry artist. Working with a variety of metals, stones and beads as raw materials, Cher creates her jewelry with classic techniques - hand forming spirals, bows and hearts, wire-wrapping, hammering to add texture and more. With over 200 items listed, there's a lot to check out here. We'll get started in the Bracelets and Anklets section where you'll find more than two dozen examples of Cher's handcrafted artisan jewelry. The pretty Rainbow Jasper Wire Wrapped Sterling Silver Bracelet is a good place to start - the jasper beads are different shapes, each is hand wrapped with sterling silver wire and its finished with a hand forged clasp. Just to accent the eclectic feeling of this unique piece Cher added a pretty blue turquoise donut bead ... a perfect accent! There are many fabulous bracelets listed here. The Mahogany Obsidian Wire Wrapped Sterling Silver Bracelet is a stunning earth-toned beauty made with deep chocolate brown and black obsidian and bright sterling silver; the contrast is fabulous. Cher's considerable wire-wrapping skills are on display in the Blue Jasper Stone, Framed and Wrapped in Copper, Greek Leather Band Bracelet, a truly magnificent creation incorporating hand formed spirals and coils in copper! The Earrings and Ear Cuffs category is well stocked with her pretty designs. Its easy to spend a lot of time here, because there is just so much to love! Cher designs for every budget, and so there is a great selection to choose from. If you want simple but pretty silver earrings, the lovely Sweet Lil Hearts... Oversized Kidney Wires, Silver could be just what you're searching for. They would make a nice Valentine's Day gift! Love your silver earrings but want a bit of color or sparkle? The Hand Forged Sterling Silver Spiral and Crystal Earrings could be your new favorite. This artist appreciates the warm color of copper, and if you also love this beautiful metal the sparkling Crystal and Copper... Sparkling Chandelier Earrings are a fab choice! If you're not dressed without neckwear, the Necklaces and Pendants category is for you! With over 40 gorgeous ways to dress up your wardrobe, this section has a lot to offer. Be sure to see the Pure Love... Heart and Pearl Pendant Antique Copper Necklace! At just $18.00 it is a great buy and a really versatile piece you'll love to wear. The gorgeous Sophisticated Lady... Black Diamond Glass Silver Necklace is stunning at just $28.00! I could write page after page going through this shop, but that would spoil the fun you can have discovering your own favorites! Visit DesignsbyCher today and you'll see why this shop has been an Etsy destination for nearly three years. Be sure to add it to your favorites - you'll want to visit again and again!
