Jet of the Day: Adroit jewelers


Ida from the Aptly named, Adroit Jewelery is our celebrated Jet of the Day.
Sea Glass, Stained Glass-Look Pendant Necklace
What do you do with all your beach glass if you are lucky enough to live in Maine and have an unending local supply? Well, you whip out your hammer and torch and get busy. This is what Ida has done, quite adroitly.  OK, so I looked it up. Adroit means skillful, resourceful and clever in the task at hand; or nimble with the hands. Ida is a long time adroit crafter and can work any material into a useful and beautiful product.

Inspired by the beach,  her sea glass collection is spectacular.

Adroit Jewelers is not just beach glass! Ida makes many styles  of hand-crafted  jewelry and everyone can fall in love in her store.  She hand crafts  heavy soldered pieces,  delicate wire wrapped pieces, and lovely rings. This artisan features gemstone beads, glass, pearls, shells  and more in her  unique handcrafted sterling silver jewelry .

The "Check out My Rock" Ring

Ida's store is so beautiful but you must take your time shopping there. Mixed in with the fantastic handmade earrings, bracelets, necklaces and rings are smartly designed, very useful items like this money clip and the convenient eyeglass holder



Try to find non-pierced modern earrings. It is almost impossible. Ida has designed several styles. These versatile "Slip on" hoops  with changeable baubles are my favorite. I am a hoop-fanatic and these look great and just do not fall off your ear.  They are simple, yet elegant. I would like a pair to wear in addition to my pierced earrings! Oh, she sells those too, of course.

Non-pierced 'Slip On' earrings in Sterling or Gold-filled
There is too much to spotlight at Adroit Jewelers and I urge you to pop over and see Ida's  handcrafted jewelry for yourself.
Ida would love to see you at Facebook too. And you can follow her on Twitter, as well.

Thank you for reading,
Norah
