Handmade Sterling Silver Jewelry – The "O" Series

A new, limited edition series of sterling ovals linked by small sterling rings. I love circles, but I love ovals even more – even though they present a slightly more complex challenge. The necklace moves with you, and the ovals will overlap one another as you do so. This kinetic aspect of the piece was an unexpected by-product of its engineering. I hope you enjoy it!

Sterling Silver O Necklace, Earrings and Ring by Nancy Lee

These links are made from heavy sterling silver and each of them is soldered closed – even the smallest silver connecting link – so you can be assured that each piece will last a long time and wear well. these pieces aren’t in the shop just yet, but if you are interested, you may contact me HERE. Thank you!
Update as of September 1, 2013: The necklace, earrings, and ring have sold. I still have one pair of matching earrings.

New Work for Summer

These are a few examples of my all new, all handmade jewelry, available now.

The Double Layer Copper Cuffs are an ever-popular design, while the sterling silver Mehndi Earrings are brand-new. The cuffs are made from recycled roofing copper. The bottom layer is textured with a hammer and the top layer is fold-formed. Each layer has a patina which is applied separately. After the patina step, the layers are riveted with sterling silver tubing, then polished and sealed with a microcrystalline wax. The Mehndi earrings are cut from heavy silver sheet, which is then pierced internally, textured, and carved with files to show dimension. The earwires are handmade to compliment the earring style.
Enjoy!
