Brooke Scarborough Jewelry Designs
Saturday morning is a good time to visit BrookeJewelry ... its quiet and we can get a good look at this emerging artisan's handcrafted silver jewelry. Brooke is developing her skills and she's making some really great jewelry, as you can see by looking at the pendant necklace in the featured photo. I chose this piece to spotlight today because it is fabulous ... and a great look at what this new jewelry designer can do! Brooke made the Plume Agate, Sterling Silver, and 14 Karat Gold Pendant Necklace you see to the left entirely by hand. The stone she chose is a beautiful multicolored plume agate with very interesting patterns. Framed in a bezel setting and accented by silver and gold shot, it dangles from a handmade silver chain! This is a beautiful piece any art jewelry collector would love to own and show off to their friends. Brooke makes many different types of jewelry. Her Sweetheart Sterling Silver Pendant Necklace is a fine silver heart pendant with a real folk art feel ... this is a wonderful piece that would be a really nice gift! It comes on a silver chain with hand forged links, and would go very nicely with casual clothing - just a great everyday pendant necklace you'll love! Clean, simple design can be gorgeous, and the Heart on a Chain pendant illustrates this perfectly. A hand forged silver heart ... accented with a bright red faceted garnet in a bezel setting dangles from a silver chain. The heart is formed with two pieces of silver wire, and I love the way this designer attached the heart pendant to the chain - without an added bail. Very pretty! Most of the pieces in Brooke's shop are necklaces, but ... there are other great items here as well! You'll find some fabulous earrings, like the Turquoise Sterling Silver and Coral Earrings - a beautiful pair of hand forged hoops dangle from French hook earwires, and at the bottom are very colorful red coral and blue turquoise beads. If you like red and blue, you'll want them! There are times when a basic pair of pearl dangle earrings are the best choice, and if that's what you've been searching for Brooke offers her Large Black Peacock Pearl Earrings and her Large White Pearl Earrings! To complete the look you might want the Large Black Peacock Pearl Pendant Necklace. Of course if you want something to go with the white pearl earrings, there is a matching necklace - the Large White Pearl Pendant Necklace! There are 50 items in her shop, and I can't showcase them all. You'll have to visit and explore a bit! So enjoy your Saturday morning coffee while you wander around BrookeJewelry. Be sure to put this wonderful shop in your favorites ... Brooke is adding new handmade silver jewelry often!
