Handmade Silver Jewelry by WearableByDesign
Today we're taking a break at WearableByDesign, the shop run by award winning artisan Jennifer Smith-Righter. The handcrafted silver jewelry in this shop is so different from commercial silver jewelry there just is no comparison. This artisan creates her pieces with fine silver and gemstones, and the designs are fantastic. The Silver Bicycle Gear Cuff Links in the picture are a great example of her style. Taking influence from industrial objects like gears and natural objects like leaves, this jewelry is easy to wear and very attractive. There are some really impressive pieces in this shop. Its going to be difficult to choose favorites, because it is ALL wonderful. But since I can't mention everything I'll do my best ... Take a look at the Silver Ribbon Barcelona Necklace. This beautiful piece was made in sections, and connected underneath. Its a very simple looking but complicated design with great lines! If you like nature inspired pieces, check out the Silver Red Crystal Pearl Flowers Scarlett Ophelia Necklace! The flowers were hand formed in fine silver, and connected to a silver chain with bright red crystals and pearls. This is a lovely piece you'll be proud to wear! You might like the gear cufflinks above, but they're for your guy friend. Don't worry ... this designer has something for you, too! The Silver Gears Industrial Steampunk Harley Chic Necklace is a truly unbelievable piece that will surely attract attention every time you put it on! OK ... so you say you can't wear that necklace every day? The Silver Bicycle Gear Earrings are an exact match for the cuff links. These cute dangles are a really nice gift for steampunk fans! If you like silver band rings, the Silver Ring with Olive Leaves and Berries is a piece you should check out. This ring has a great raised leaf and berry design around the center, and would be a nice every day ring. Prefer a textured band? The Delicately Textured Silver Band Juliet Ring could be your new favorite! There are a lot of great pendants here. The Silver Reversible Steampunk Time Machine Pendant; is very cool; the Silver Reversible Edelweiss Pendant is a true beauty; and the techno-geek influenced Silver Square Computer Chip Style Circuitry Pendant is very different!
