Hello, everybody! Welcome back to another Weekly Wednesday! This week I've done a large amount of browsing and have decided to feature some lovely raw stone jewelry. There's just something about stones in their natural state that make jewelry all the more beautiful. They don't have to be shiny to be pretty!
Item #1 is from DANIBARBEshop
This may not be what you think of when you hear 'emerald," but you have to admit that these are pretty darn gorgeous. The raw surface gives these babies a very nice visual texture, and the size difference between the two stones makes them unique. The stones are plated with nickel-free 14k gold and have sterling silver ear posts, so you don't have to worry about allergic reactions.
Item #2 is from ALLOYDstudio
Now, this one is a very nice statement piece that still evokes a sense of minimalism. I love the pretty blue color of kyanite--it's very serene and soothing. This pendant is rather large at 5.5 inches, but I think that the size is perfect since there's not a ton of other things going on in the piece. The pendant itself is composed of the circle and a string of raw kyanite pieces. The chain of this necklace is also really pretty. It's a delicate, brass ball chain and a perfect 27 inches in length.
Item # 3 is from AmeyaaJewelry
The first thing that caught my eye about this necklace was the shape. I love that it's something different tha what we would normally expect out of a pendant. This necklace could be a bit of a surprise since the color varies a little bit. ou might get more of a green stone, a blue stone, or a purple stone--all of which are equally pretty. I really like the gold detail that maker has put along the edges of each stone--kind of remind me of the geometric terrariums that are so popular right now.
Item #4 is from WaltersWish
This bracelet is SO pretty! It is very delicate and feminine with the seed beads and raw diamond chips. In case you're wondering, the diamonds are conflict-free (definitely a plus). I could see this piece being very versatile. You could wear it by itself or in combination with several other bracelets. Versatility is something that I look for when I buy or make jewelry because I feel like it's sort of pointless to buy something that ou can only wear with one specific outfit (sometimes, the piece is too fabulous though!). This would be a great gift for Mother's Day or any other occasion that celebrate a special lady!
Item #5 is from LittleSycamore
I didn't think a jewelry feature would be complete without a ring! I've got everything else pretty much! I'm really loving that this ring has two different stones--two types of garnet to be exact. I always ictured garnet as a red stone, but it's color can be influenced by where it is located. The ring itself starts out with a handmade, hammered ring and is turned into the product you see by the process of electroforming and a lot of tedious work by the designer. This ring could go with a variety of outfits due to its neutral color combination. Definitely a must have!
That all I have for you in this week's round-up, but I have more in store for other posts. I can't just give you everything at once, can I?! Haha. I hope that you all have a good rest of the week and weekend, and I'll see ya right back here next time! And don't forget to head on over you your favorite handmade sites and show some artitsts some love!
Until next time,
