Handcrafted Jewelry, An Artisan Showcase!

With handcrafted jewelry the sky is the limit and there is really nothing we can’t do, right? So I wanted to show off 4 jewelry artists in the Artisan Showcase and how they used pieces of my polymer clay work in their own handcrafted jewelry.

First up from ShadowDogDesigns a gorgeous necklace made from turquoise rondelles, speckled “quail egg” seeds, and sterling silver, along with my carved polymer clay heart. I love how well the colors go on this, Catherine does have a way with color! Check out Catherine’s shop for her nature inspired unique handmade jewelry  made with the most beautiful handcrafted boro lampwork beads and semiprecious stones….they are gorgeous!

From JoyciesJems One of my steampunk butterflies with a  hand dyed silk ribbon and handcrafted sterling silver beads. The colors of this ribbon are so wonderful with this butterfly, it really is stunning! Check out Joyce’s shop and you’ll see her passion for texture, color, and some real gorgeous materials like paua shells and her very own lampwork beads.

From Jennifer Schwartzenberger at  Stony Creek Bead & Gallery in Ypsilanti, MI, a custom made Dragon’s Eye Focal made just for her, again, I thought her color choice was wonderful but her bead work? Exquisite!
