Handmade Jewelry at WearableByDesign

Good morning! Today we're visiting WearableByDesign. This shop showcases handcrafted fine silver jewelry made by an award winning artisan jewelry maker! The handmade jewelry on display in this shop is so unique you know right away it is very special ... The Silver Gears Industrial Steampunk Harley Chic Necklace you see here is made of .999 fine silver with a sterling silver chain. Each gear is individually created by the artisan, and they're linked together to create this absolutely amazing necklace. Making a piece like this takes a LOT of time ... the skill to do the labor ... and a real eye for design. It is no wonder this Harley Chic necklace was voted Favorite "Bike Item on a Roll" on Etsy 2009! This necklace is just about 18" long. It isn't available anywhere else ... you are dealing directly with the artist when you shop at WearableByDesign! Every piece of jewelry in this shop is fabulous. The variety is good; you'll find a nice assortment of handmade necklaces, pendants, rings, earrings and Cuff Links. This jewelry maker is influenced by her interests in mechanical objects and natural forms. Two polar opposites ... and it makes this a fascinating collection. Above, you see her industrial side; but look at her Silver Red Crystal Pearl Flowers Scarlett Ophelia Necklace and you'll see an entirely different line. Graceful, flowing lines that are so feminine and pretty ... yet this is an amazingly detailed necklace with gorgeous texture. It also features red pearls and crystals, and since each component is separately attached to the chain the parts move freely. Truly beautiful. Another nature influenced piece, the Silver Oak Leaves Necklace is also fine silver. Each leaf making up this necklace is unique; they are graduated in size and the piece is finished with a handmade sterling silver hook clasp. This fabulous necklace is a choker length piece. The Silver and Red Cabochon Pendant - Shakespeare's Rose is a petite fine silver pendant with a bright pink CZ and a lovely floral design. This pendant arrives ready to wear on a sterling chain! If you like a larger size pendant, the Silver and Red Faceted Stones - Victoria in Red Pendant might be just what you're looking for. The pattern is in a vintage style, with a pretty border design and a vine with berries design. The pendant is set with six CZs, six in a ruby red color and a larger clear CZ in the center. This pendant is about 1.5" across, and arrives on a silver chain! I like the Handmade Silver Squares Ring. This is a one of a kind ring, entirely handcrafted in .999 fine silver. A great style that will always be fashionable, this ring is a nice fashion accent! If you're looking for a nice gift for a man, this artisan has a couple of pieces you might like. The cool Bicycle Gear Man's or Unisex Necklace is a fine silver gear pendant on your choice of a black rubber cord necklace or a sterling silver chain. This is a really nice casual accessory for a man! For more dressy occasions, men like to wear a nice pair of cuff links. Consider this awesome pair of Silver Bicycle Gear Cuff Links! The same basic design as the pendant above - but smaller - these could easily become a favorite pair of cufflinks. The gears are fine silver; the backs are sterling. Stop by WearableByDesign today and take a look around. You'll be very impressed by this artisan's designs, and you might even decide to treat yourself to a beautiful piece of fine silver artisan jewelry!

I love the design that you did there. It's always best to be dressed up rather than dressed down. Looking crisp and snappy would always boost a man's confidence. Choosing the right accessory for that occasion can definitely make a big difference. Crystal Cufflinks are best for those special formal occasions. crystal cufflinks

Don't know HOW Jen does what she does, but am sure glad she is doing it...her pieces could be hung in a shadow box truly as art vs. jewelry. Such attention to detail!
