Delicious metal designs and
handmade jewelry by Metalicious

This morning we're going to take a look inside Metalicious! This shop grows steadily, and every time we visit there are new designs to check out. This jewelry artisan loves to work in metal, with just a few gemstones in some pieces to add a bit of color. Her designs are usually made in silver; the sparkling white metal puts an emphasis on her urban and sculptural designs in a very natural manner, allowing the eye to appreciate the appearance of her fabulous handcrafted jewelry instead of focusing on the materials used to create it. The Wrought Sterling Ring shown in the featured photo is a great example of this. It would be easy to imagine this piece cast in yellow gold, with small rubies or other gemstones set into the spaces around the center. Instead, the ring is a wonderful, flowing sterling silver piece that pleases the eye and allows the beautiful design to take center stage - exactly as it should. Sometimes less IS more; this is one of those pieces that just stands out from the crowd! This metalsmith's shop is arranged in collections, or design lines. She has several distinct lines; each has a completely different look. The first is the Modern Rock Collection ... a very imaginative, playful collection that definitely makes a fashion statement! From across a room, these pieces appear to be set with sparkling gemstones. Look more closely and you'll see they're actually highly polished, sparkling faceted metal "jewels"! The collection started with the Original Modern Rock Ring in Silver, a simple band with a huge cast sterling silver round brilliant diamond shape "stone" mounted to the top - like an engagement ring. This proved to be a very popular design, and the collection grew. Now you can shop at Metalicious for variations of this line - the Modern Rock Sterling Ascher cut Ring, the Mini Modern Rock Ring in Sterling - with a smaller "gem", and the eye-popping Modern Rock XL Oval Bling Ring in sterling silver. These "stones" are even available in plated yellow gold and rose gold finishes on select pieces. It doesn't stop there ... The Modern Rock Round Brilliant Necklace was a natural extension of this line. It is simply gorgeous; there are other pieces you should see, like the Modern Rock Sterling Love Studs, made with faceted hearts. The guys will want these Modern Rock Emerald cufflinks in sterling silver! I love the Bubbles Collection. Every design in this line is fantastic. Looking at these pieces can remind you of a simpler time in your life; when you played with soap bubbles for fun! The pretty Foam Necklace and the Champagne necklace in sterling and blue topaz are amazing; you'll get compliments every time you wear them! The Bubble studs are very cool; if you prefer dangles, you'll love the Handmade Goddess earrings in sterling silver! The new line at Metalicious is the Metropolis Collection. This artisan lives in New York City, and it seems fairly obvious where she found the inspiration for this attractive line of architectural jewelry. The collection just has a few rings in it so far, but I imagine it will grow ... The METROPOLIS mini skyline trio in sterling, 14k pink and 14k yellow gold is a set of three stacking rings in different color metals for a striking visual effect. Because the three rings are separate they can be worn in a different order, which changes the style. They're fabulous! Want a bigger skyline? Add the Metropolis Duo Skyscraper sterling silver stack rings! Because they can be worn together, you'll have even more choices for a unique, urban look ... The star of the collection is the Metropolis sterling silver blue sapphire stack, size 7 set. At this time, this is the only size listed. The set is made up of four rings, and one of them is set with beautiful blue sapphires. They can be worn separately, but look amazing worn together! There are many other things to see at Metalicious. When you explore this shop be sure to visit the earrings section, the neckwear gallery, the rings collection and the bracelets category! Be sure to add this store to your favorites, because you'll want to shop here often!

This jewelry artisan makes pretty earrings, necklaces and bracelets featuring gemstones, pearls, vintage lucite beads and a lot more. Most of the metal in her jewelry is sterling silver, but you'll also see some made with 14k gold filled components. Much of the silver is oxidized, giving it a fashionable Noir look.

These two colors - a bright green and a soft lavender - are fabulous springtime and summer colors. The metal is oxidized sterling silver, which is very easy to care for and gains a beautiful patina over time. The Spring Romance heart necklace was made with pink and seafoam green vintage Lucite beads and oxidized sterling silver. The heart charm was hand hammered by the artist! This is a very beautiful necklace and you'll never see one quit like it anywhere else! If you love vintage jewelry, visit this designer's EARRINGS vintage glass category for some unique pieces!

This jewelry artisan has been busy adding new techniques to her skill set and she's using them to create some fabulous new necklaces, earrings and bracelets that I know you're going to love! Originally a bead artist, Marcie Jane has become quite a metalworker. She has a great eye for design and her pieces show it! The fantastic Copper Swirls - metalwork copper and fine silver earrings shown in the featured photo on the left are a good example of her metal designs. They were made with hand forged copper swirls and fine silver dangles ... the design itself is very attractive, and I love the mix of colors - rich red copper and the sparkling white of fine silver are a very attractive combination. These lovely earrings dangle about 1.5"" from the ear, so they're a nice length for everyday wear. At just $29.00, they're a great buy! Her Copper Leaves - metalwork copper earrings are another fine example of her metalsmithing skills. This artisan hand cut the leaves from copper sheet, gave them a wonderful hammered texture and oxidized them to bring the texture out. She then added Czech glass beads and a bit of brass chain to accent and bring movement to these pretty earrings. They could be yours for only $29.00! Marcie Jane's Round Two - fine silver hammered earrings are simply gorgeous. Four fine silver circles have been created from wire, fused then hand hammered - two for each earring - and connected to create these fashionable silver dangle earrings. they're a bargain at $37.00 ... This designer may be making fabulous metal pieces, but hasn't given up her first love - making beautiful beaded jewelry. I love her Paisley bracelet - made with turquoise, paisley jasper and sterling silver toggle! The large oval Paisley Jasper stones are gorgeous ... and the perfect match for the turquoise and red tiger eye beads she added as accents. This wonderful bracelet could easily become something you wear every day, because the blue and brown tones will compliment so many things in your wardrobe. Take this fantastic bracelet home for just $38.00! One of this designer's signature pieces is her lovely The Oyster and the Pearl Necklace. This is a classic looking piece featuring an oxidized silver "oyster shell" formed by hand from a silver disc, with a genuine white freshwater pearl, wire-wrapped in silver and dangled in front of the open shell. This is an original necklace you'll want to wear often; and reasonably priced at $42.00. If you like the design, matching The Oyster and the Pearl Earrings are available for $36.00! We all love pearl necklaces ... especially if they're unique! She Wore a Pearl Necklace - made with freshwater pearls, pink opals and labradorite - is stunning! This lovely necklace is made with multiple sizes and shapes of multicolored freshwater pearls, accented by pink opal and labradorite beads. This eclectic beauty is certainly unique, because the pearls can never be matched in exactly the same way! It is 16 1/2" long. with a 2" sterling silver extender chain, making it a total of 18 1/2". It can be worn at either length; and its only $42.00! I absolutely LOVE Marcie Jane's line of bottle cap pendants. They're colorful and quite striking; the logo images are crisp and clear, and very familiar to anyone who drank these sodas and beers. This Recycled Vintage Pop Bottle Cap Pendant is truly ... pop art! There are many different pop bottle cap pendant designs to choose from. If your thing is beer, this Recycled Beer Bottle Cap Pendant will be instantly familiar ... and of course, there are other beer bottle cap pendants to choose from. These are all handmade with sterling silver findings and recycled caps, and they're priced at only $20.00! There is more to see. A lot more! Please visit this fantastic handmade jewelry artisan to explore on your own ... guided tours are nice, but you need to experience her art yourself to appreciate it.

These necklaces are perfect accessories for the spring and summer season; they're very well made and quite fashionable! Most of the jewelry offered at FuchsiaBloomStudio is in the two earrings galleries. Visit the metalworked earrings section to find over 40 different styles, all featuring sparkling crystal, amazing art glass or gorgeous gemstones. The prices are quite reasonable ... at the time I wrote this review the most expensive pair in this gallery were the Earth Mother 2 - Gold Filled Organic Hoops - Forest, listed at $35.00! The metal used to make the earrings in this section is mostly sterling silver; there are a few pair made with copper and gold filled components. The designs are unique yet classic, and help draw the eye to the sparkling crystal, pearls, gemstone beads and top quality art glass! The Selena Earrings showcase wire-wrapped aqua briolettes suspended from hammered sterling silver wire spirals. They're very affordable at just $30.00, and are available in other colors by request! If you like briolettes, you'll find a lot to love in this shop! The Simplicity Earrings are a great example ... sterling wire-wrapped citrine briolettes dangle from a hand hammered silver bar, extending them to a stylish 2" length. This design is also offered in other gemstones, as you can see in the featured photo of the Simplicity Earrings in Carnelian! If you like Ocean Jasper as much as I do, you'll love the Sand and Sea Earrings! This pretty pair of dangles are a good choice if you prefer earth tones like greens and browns. The ocean jasper rectangles dangle from sterling bars, and are accented with pretty beige color pearls ... With 88 pair of earrings to choose from, the beaded earrings gallery is the star of the show in this shop! You'll find the prices here are quite affordable - starting at just $12.00, and ranging up to the high end at $30.00. There is a great variety here, and every pair was made lovingly by hand with the finest materials. One example are the pretty Serene Sky-Aqua Pearl Faye Earrings, made with a cluster of pale aqua pearls dangling from sterling silver wire, hanging 1 1/2 inches from silver french hook ear wires. This artisan offers this style in a variety of pearl colors, or a choice of Swarovski crystal in place of the pearls by request. This makes these the perfect choice for a wedding party - because they can be color coordinated with your bridesmaids' dresses! For an elegant formal affair, you might want the Blackberries - Black and Purple Chandelier Earrings. These dramatic chandelier style dangles are also availabel in a variety of colors!

Handmade Jewelry - by Dashery Jewelry

Early Saturday ... and I'm taking a quiet look at Dashery Jewelry! This artisan is a talented metalworker, bead artist and chainmaille maker. This is going to be a quick look, because there are just 20 items in her shop at the moment ... but I'll spotlight a few ... Lorian has a beautiful Sterling Silver Queen Chain Maille Square Mail Plus Size Bracelet with Toggle Clasp in her shop that shows her skills at making chainmaille. This bracelet is made with rings in a way that is very similar to the Byzantine style, so if you like that design you'll probably like this one also. This is a plus - sized bracelet, but I'm sure she would be more than happy to make one just for you to fit! A well-rounded jewelry maker, this artisan has great wire wrapping skills and a great eye for design. The pretty Striped Circles Agate and Silver Bracelet is made with beautiful striped agate coin beads, each carefully wrapped to form a link. The links have been assembled to produce this lovely bracelet. It truly is a beauty! The Midnight Velvet Crystal and Silver Earrings feature deep faceted blue glass coin beads suspended from sterling silver bar and link chain. These are well made earrings you'll want to wear often! If you like them and want a matching necklace, the Midnight Velvet Crystal and Silver Necklace is a fabulous piece you'll love ... I chose the featured necklace because its so familiar ... yet you might look at it and say ... I know I've seen that, but ... what is it? Its an eyebrow! Very different and without a doubt an art piece, the Raise an Eyebrow Copper Pendant was made of copper sheet ... and it hangs on copper cable chain. An interesting piece that would be a great conversation starter! I can't mention every piece in this post because there won't be any surprises for you to find on your own when you visit. So take a few minutes today to check out Dashery Jewelry!
