Jet of the Day: mcr designs


Jasper Pendant in Sterling
Bold. Beautiful. Colorful. Chunky. Bright. Fun. Quirky. Original.

These words have all been used to describe the contemporary vintage, handmade jewelry by our Jet of the Day today, Maureen of mcr designs of Madison, Wisconsin.

An eclectic style and strong sense of design are the foundation on which this jewelry artist builds her collection.

 When you go, do not miss the collection of Vintage earrings!










Solid quality is a hallmark in mcr designs. In the "Awake" bracelet,  polished faceted chunky green jasper and rusty carnelian  are used and mimic the colors of a garden just awakening.  Maureen completes this piece using her "sassy wire wraps:, an oversized lobster clasp, a bit of chain and a soldered shut jump ring. All metal is sterling silver, hand oxidized by Maureen.

Being a bracelet freak, myself, I truly appreciate the craftswomanship in all of her chunky, medium weight creations.
