These items are handmade especially for those who love yoga! I used sterling silver spiritual charms of lotuses, Om’s and Sanskrit phrases. They are delicately hung from sterling silver chain and include semi-precious stones, faceted crystal and fire polished glass.

I hope you find these images as inspiring as I do! Namaste!

Making Sterling Silver, Fabric and Resin Necklace

by lindley on Nov.11, 2009, under Handmade Jewelry, Jewelry Making

Here are the steps I used – to make this sterling silver,  fabric and resin necklace
  • Hand fabricate different sized bezels and soldering tubes to the backs.
  • Use soft sterling silver wire, to go through the back and connect the pieces.
  • Fill the bezels with fabric remnants in varying colors and prints
  • Pour resin over the tops to create a glossy, glass-like effect.

Earrings – Jewelry Trends : Grey and Purple, HUGE this fall!

by SINjewelry on Oct.15, 2009, under Handmade Jewelry, Jewelry Trends

http://blog.jewelstruck.com/wp-content/plugins/sociofluid/images/digg_48.png http://blog.jewelstruck.com/wp-content/plugins/sociofluid/images/reddit_48.png http://blog.jewelstruck.com/wp-content/plugins/sociofluid/images/stumbleupon_48.png http://blog.jewelstruck.com/wp-content/plugins/sociofluid/images/delicious_48.png http://blog.jewelstruck.com/wp-content/plugins/sociofluid/images/technorati_48.png http://blog.jewelstruck.com/wp-content/plugins/sociofluid/images/google_48.png http://blog.jewelstruck.com/wp-content/plugins/sociofluid/images/myspace_48.png http://blog.jewelstruck.com/wp-content/plugins/sociofluid/images/facebook_48.png http://blog.jewelstruck.com/wp-content/plugins/sociofluid/images/twitter_48.png

Trends this fall still include dangly or largish earrings, but they are going slowly away from the chandelier style. Color-wise, purple and grey are very popular.

These Amethyst Kiss Earrings fit the bill for the season. They are feminine yet have an industrial feel. The mix of shiny, dark and textured silver adds interest, as do the dark and light amethysts.

When creating earring designs, artisans consider both colour and texture.  In the end, they need to be a good balance of both.

Shopping from artisans ensures that you get a one-of-a-kind design (usually with a story behind it) and quality. Those are things that the Big Box stores can’t provide.
