JET of the Day: CapitalCityCrafts

CapitalCityCrafts is our JET of the Day for December 1 2014! When you visit this shop, you'll find a fantastic collection of original designs in copper, brass, silver and gold.

With a full range of handcrafted jewelry including earrings, cuff bracelets, rings and artisan made necklaces, you'll find a lot to love at CapitalCityCrafts!

The amazing silver acorn pendant seen on the right is one of the best, most natural looking acorns I've seen made in metal. Hand carved by the artisan in wax, this pendant is cast with the top and bottom as separate pieces, then they're soldered together to assemble the pendant. This opens up possibilities, and makes it easy to order an acorn pendant in mixed metals - with contrasting colors for a striking appearance as in this example.

A favorite in this shop is the very pretty and feminine Petite Modern Butterfly Necklace seen on the left. This is a smaller version of the beautiful, original full sized butterfly necklace offered in this shop. If you'd like matching butterfly earrings, they are available as well.

Some of the designs in this shop are one of a kind, but most are made in small batches and sold exclusively by CapitalCityCrafts.

If you're shopping for a Christmas gift, you may want to consider the gorgeous Sterling Silver Peace Dove Unisex Necklace shown on the right. This flowing, graceful symbol of peace is a perfect Holiday gift for a friend or family member.

Another design you'll find only in this shop are the Organic Pool Pendant and matching Sterling Silver Pool Earrings.

Barbara is the creative jeweler who designed all the jewelry you see above. Recently Barbara has partnered with her friend Jeff, who makes silver art jewelry. The Sterling Silver Open Heart Necklace on the left is one of Jeff's creations.

The heart is amazing enough - but the chain is an outstanding piece in itself.

So take a break for lunch today and do some shopping at CapitalCityCrafts!
