Jet of the Day: Silver Smack

Eternity: Hammered Multi Color Silver Stacking Rings

Our Jet of the day today, lovingly known as "Smacky" is actually Dara, of Silver Smack. Dara's home and studio are in the beautiful big snow country of Northern Michigan, where she hammers and wire wraps fine metals into one of a kind jewelry pieces for you.

Her stacking rings are my absolute favorite! She has so many to choose from, all with different textures and finishes to the metals. Here, I show you my favorites. If you do not find the exact ring of your dreams, no worries, Dara will work closely with you to create your unique ring or custom wedding bands!

Hammered Silver Ring and Two Stacking Dot Bands
Dara does things with wire that I can only dream of. She weaves the Herringbone wrap around gemstones so they look like little sculptures
Leaf Green Peridot Wire Wrapped Silver Earrings
At Silver Smack you will find one hundred pair of earrings to choose from! And
this Chrysoprase pendant is incredible. Dara hand chooses only the best semi precious gemstones to be used in her handmade pendants or earrings.

Although her store on Etsy.com is called Silver Smack, just look at what she can do with brass and copper!
