Creative, Fashionable, Affordable
Handmade Jewelry by AdroitJewelers

AdroitJewelers is a fascinating shop; I love it when people collect local materials and turn them into handmade jewelry! This artisan lives and works in Maine, and makes some of the jewelry you 'll find in the shop from sea glass she picks up on local beaches. The pendant shown on the left is a great example! I love the color -a beautiful light violet. This artisan jeweler is very good at wire-wrapping, and created this two piece pendant with plenty of movement. The Shapely Genuine Purple Seaglass pendant is a frosted beauty! This handmade pendant could be yours for $54.00! These root beer colored Sterling Silver Caged Brown Genuine Sea Glass Earrings are very pretty! Encased in a silver spiral cage, these earrings are an unusual color for sea glass. The metal parts are all sterling silver, and they're about 1.25" long. Take them home - just $27.00! This next pair are a similar style, but made with the very hard to find bright green color sea glass. The Sterling Silver Caged Green Genuine Sea Glass Earrings are a fantastic, vivid green hue that is so well known it has a name ... bottle green! These lovely earrings are just $29.00. Everyone who collects and loves sea glass knows ... blue is the rarest of colors ... very hard to find. The Deep Blue Sea Necklace - Genuine Seaglass is simply beautiful. A well worn piece of deep blue sea glass is simply drilled and dangled from the bottom of a beautiful wire form sterling silver pendant. This pendant arrives on a silver rope chain; it is priced at $69.00. There is one more sea glass piece I want to mention ... the Genuine Sea Glass Sterling Silver Cage Bracelet! Made with links similar to the caged earrings above ... brown, white and green sea glass, linked together to form a fabulous one of a kind bracelet! Bargain priced - at $46.00! Click into the bracelets category, where you'll find the Copper Viking Knit Handmade Bracelet! Viking Knit is an ancient wire weaving technique that produces a beautiful chain ... if you wear a copper bracelet, this is a great style you'll love! Very stylish and pretty, this bracelet is $38.00. It may seem like everyone is pierced everywhere these days, but believe it or not there are plenty of women who don't have pierced ears. This artisan knows they want earrings too ... and so she designed a new type of earring just for them! Check out her Earrings Non pierced section for a nice variety of styles designed to look great, wear comfortably and stay in place! These beautiful Peridot Green Czech Glass Slip on Hoops - non-pierced are made with gleaming gold filled wire, hand formed and hammered - with a peridot color Czech glass bead dangle. Just $42.00 ... There is a LOT to see at AdroitJewelers. When you browse this shop be sure to see the Earrings Pierced category, the Necklaces/Pendants section and the Rings. There is also a Gifts and Vintage section, a SALE Section and a Supplies category for the DIY crew. So stop by for a visit and treat yourself to some great summer jewelry!
