Handmade Artisan Jewelry

Today I have four very different artisan jewellery pieces created by cSerpentDesigns to share with you! These are all handcrafted using totally different processes and techniques, and this post will illustrate how this Jet member has multiple talents when it comes to her art! I write these posts almost every day and am always amazed by the diverse jewelry offerings Jet members have for sale. Susan, the artisan who makes the jewelry at cSerpentDesigns has an amazing selection of handmade jewelry and gifts in her shop! This first pair of earrings are a 2 layered design made with anodized aluminum and Argentium silver. Aluminum can take on a rainbow of colors when anodized. Susan made it green ... then used handmade silver rivets to attach the anodized aluminum to the Argentium sterling silver sheet. Susan's Limey Rivets - Argentium Silver Earrings are fabulous! The ear wires are also handmade from Argentium silver wire. These unique earrings are truly one of a kind; they could be yours for only $31.00! These Hammered Argentium silver and malachite-azurite earrings are awesome! I love the texture ... hammered squares instead of the usual hammer texture make these quite different. Susan gave them a slight dome, so they have an added dimension; they aren't simply flat. The malachite-azurite cabs are very pretty; this copper bearing gemstone has a beautiful blue and green color pattern. Even the ear wires are handmade! This is a well made pair of handcrafted gemstone and silver earrings you'll love to wear. They can be yours - just $85.00! Here's a bracelet this artisan made with glass cane beads! This piece features beads made by a glass artist Susan knows personally; she watched the beads being made! They've been combined here with sterling silver beaded spacers and black rubber tube ... This fantastic furnace glass bracelet was made on memory wire, so its pretty much adjustable to fit almost any wrist. If you like purple, the Purple Wrap - Artisan furnace glass and sterling silver bracelet could be your new favorite. Have this beautiful bracelet shipped right to your home - for the bargain price of only $45.00! The fourth piece today is made of pure copper with some bright blue turquoise rondelles! The Copper Leaf - copper and turquoise necklace features a pendant that is a unique design you'll never see anywhere else. It was made by the artisan with the newly developed copper metal clay! This revolutionary new "clay" allows the artisan freedom to design just about anything imaginable and produce it in pure copper. This pendant was hand formed, textured and slightly oxidized. The bright blue turquoise adds nice contrast! It could be yours for $45.00! Four artisan jewelry pieces ... all beautiful, each made in a different way. Susan is a very talented artist, and I know you'll like the other 100+ jewelry and gift items in her shop! So take a few minutes to visit cSerpentDesigns today! You'll be very happy with the selection, the quality and the prices. Remember to bookmark cSerpentDesigns ... this is a really great place to shop!
