Contemporary - Vintage -
Handmade Jewelry by MCR Designs

MCRDesigns has some really great handmade jewelry for you to check out! 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. The Ebony - Black onyx sterling silver bracelet is the perfect example ... big, chunky black onyx barrels paired with oxidized sterling silver gives this bracelet a unique appearance! As you can see in the picture, the Thai - Red coral sterling silver earrings are also made with oxidized silver. The dark color brings out the red of the coral and really makes it pop! I like the Copper Canyon bracelet. Made with great 20mm fossil coral coin beads and sterling silver, this unusual bracelet will definitely get attention! These amazing beads are a beautiful tan / brown / rust color combination and each bead is marked with unique, striking patterns. The Blueberry Canyon bracelet, handmade with cobalt paisley jasper and carnelian on sterling silver wire wrapped links is another fantastic patterned stone bracelet. These jasper beads are a great combination of blue and brown with very unique markings. The pretty Soulmate necklace is a great combination of tanzanite and peridot! 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! The Puppy Love heart earrings feature the same pink vintage Lucite beads and hand hammered hearts in the necklace above, and would be a nice match! They're also made with beautiful oxidized sterling silver components ... New Day is a great pair of vintage glass and sterling silver earrings! These vintage German glass leaf beads are a gorgeous blue - green color combination with a frosted finish. The color looks fabulous on the oxidized silver wire ... There are 75 great choices in this shop. I don't want to review them all ... I have to leave some surprises for you! Please visit MCRDesigns today.
