Showcasing today, Jewelry by Brooklyn based WAXTHEDUCK. It is an independent line of handmade jewelry made for earth lovers. Designed by Chrissy Reilly, WAXTHEDUCK was an outlet for her creativity at a time she had taken on a full time job and abandoned her fine art practice. Making necklaces became a direct connection to finding materials and transforming them into something tactile and important.

WAXTHEDUCK jewelry is inspired by the earth, what is found on its surface and what is made by the remains that are altered by its surroundings. Wood, feathers, glass, stone, leather, and metals are all the ingredients that can be used to compose a necklace. Reilly says “I like to leave part of the making in the process, whether it be showing the weld in the metal, the string on the length… all of these imperfections indicate the process that the piece took to make and act as my continued part and signature in it’s existence; my hand. It’s truly important to me to remain connected to my work even after its sale.”

Today, Reilly designs and makes over 100 pieces and distributes through Etsy and her website www.waxtheduck.com. Occasionally she will set up at the local, Coffee shot Beaner Bar, “Artist and Fleas”, or “Brooklyn Market”. Her ideal is to have a place where people of all ages can come and find affordable jewelry, accessories and clothing. You can checkout etsy store http://waxtheduck.etsy.com for more details. Also you can get in touch with her over facebook, twitter and tumblr.

She used the decoration called Confetti over the plain pendants and earrings she had bought from a local vendor. Confetti is fragile, thin flakes of glass you need to watch out! or you’ll cut yourself, as she did. The pendants and earrings were baked separately. Every time before you use kiln, you need to cover it with the Thinfire paper, otherwise the glass sticks!

Diane loved making fused Glass Jewelry. If you like to know more about it, do checkout her website or connect with her on facebook.

This being a known fact that floral Jewelry catches attention and gets you thousands of compliments every time you wear, what if its made of real flowers which are made to look fresh and last longer? That’s possible now with actress/artist Samantha Lockwood’s new venture Fleurings Jewelry.

Fleurings by Samantha Lockwood

Fleurings by Samantha Lockwood

Lockwood found that whenever she wore flowers, she got more compliments and there was a lot of positive energy around. She wanted to get a more secure way to hold the flower and keep the flower fresh longer. Keeping that in mind, she began designing tiny wearable vases (earrings, pins, and necklaces) so flowers could last through the day and thus Fleurings was born.

“Fleurings is a unique new line of jewelry made to hold water and flowers. Each piece holds just enough water to keep flowers lasting longer and looking fresher. Each one of these designs are made from a stainless steel frame to prevent tarnishing or leakage and then plated in your choice of high quality silver, gold and black rhodium. Ideal for wearing orchids, daisies, mums and spray roses. Bunch together thin stems until they fit snug or wear a large flower.”
