Get to Know
I started doing art and jewelry in the 1970's, painting, sculpting, and teaching various mixed media art classes. In the 1990's I began creating jewelry with metal smithing and sterling and pure silver. My art and jewelry have been featured in magazines, books, on the internet, Juried Fine Art Faires, and on my local TV Station.
I have taken all my art, metal smithing, design, and jewelry knowledge to create my line of Fine Costume Jewelry. I pride myself on the craftmanship of my pieces, and I take the time to make you a quality piece of Costume Jewelry that you will wear for years. The loops are turned properly, the patina of the metal's match, the beads are Swarvoski or Glass Crystals, and wirewrapped. The images are under glass cabachons or industrial grade resin, and are printed on a 9600dpi industrial printer. They are clear & crisp with each vintage image photoshop. (sometimes difficult to show and photograph through domed glass). Also all my charms are cast and made in the USA, what does this mean? It means they have great definition, top quality, and are all lead free. Many of the overseas manufacturers copy the US charms, but most are made from inferior products like pot-metal, and pewter composites then covered in silver, they are heavy, brittle and break easily. Because of the quality materials I use, all my charm bracelets weigh under 3 ounces, and can be worn comfortable all day.
Please check my feedback for consistent comments about the craftmanship of my art jewelry.
I really hope you enjoy looking at my Art & Fine Crafts. Thanks for visiting my shop, also, I love doing custom pieces! If you like the vintage images used in some of the bracelets you can find them at my website www.blackberrydesigns.com.
