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!
