Unique Sterling Silver Jewelry with Character by CapitalCityCrafts

Let's get this out of the way ... CapitalCityCrafts is a fabulous place to find handcrafted silver jewelry! The jewelry artisan who owns and runs this shop - Barbara Moore - is an experienced jewelry designer who sold her creations to other merchants for several years before opening this shop. Now Barbara is offering her handmade jewelry directly to the public in her Etsy store! A well rounded designer who makes her items by employing metalsmithing and wireworking, this talented artisan has filled the pages of her shop with pretty earrings, fashionable necklaces, cool bracelets and attractive rings. Gemstones, pearls and sterling silver are the focus here, and you'll love what this designer does with her raw materials - combining them to create sparkly baubles every jewelry lover will appreciate. First we'll look at necklaces. The Sea Shades Blue Lampwork and Green Biwa pearl necklace is made with pretty blue lampwork swirl beads, lime green biwa pearls, deep blue kyanite discs and sterling silver components. These colors work very well together; the necklace is made in a choker length with an extender chain, so it is adjustable. This necklace is a bargain at the direct from the artist price of $85.00; it would cost much more in a local jewelry shop or department store! One of this designer's signature lines is the "Pool" series. The Sterling Silver pool necklace is a unique piece designed by Barbara and cast in a limited quantity. This gorgeous design is available in several variations; the Garnet Sterling Pool Necklace features a pretty red garnet, and it could be yours for just $45.00! Pearl lovers will want to check out the Glowing Pearl and Citrine torsade necklace. This is truly a statement piece; heads will turn when you wear it! A six strand stunning beauty, this fantastic necklace features four strands of gorgeous golden freshwater pearls and two strands of faceted citrine rondelles for sparkle. This amazing necklace could be yours for $250.00! The earrings section is spectacular! There are 30 pair of pretty dangle earrings, luxurious chandlier earrings and sparkling hoop earrings offered here. Earrings are a must-have accessory for many women and this shop is a convenient, affordable place to indulge yourself ... Black goes with almost any type of formal or business wear, and the Black Forest Tourmaline and Pearl earrings are a really versatile style. This lovely pair of stud dangles are made with black pearls and sparkling faceted tourmaline, attached to sterling silver cable chain for a dramatic, glittering cascade. They're a great deal at just $40.00! I really like the color combination in the Blue Sky Earrings. Made with hammered silver and copper discs and deep blue kyanite coins, this beautiful pair of chandelier earrings are an amazing value at $30.00! The featured earrings are the Honey and Chocolate Smokey Quartz and Pearl Earrings. This combination just looks perfect together! These earrings have it all - great design, sparkle and luxurious pearls - all for $38.00. Yes ... there is more. A lot more. But I don't want to spoil all the fun - I'm going to leave the rest for you to discover on your own! Visit CapitalCityCrafts today ... you'll really enjoy exploring this shop!
