In the world of fine art, light and color is as important as composition and subject. Jewelry as an art form is no different. I love to create my jewelry using the natural beauty of different and unique gemstones combined with a variety of metals to fit and complement the body. I am partial to many colors of stones both faceted and rough but labradorite and moonstone are some of my favorites.
Taking care of your jewelry:
This piece of sterling silver jewelry is high polished and not sealed. It will naturally patina over time which gives it a duller sheen. If you want more of the high polished look we recommend our Jewelry Cleaner in accessories.
