I love the organic, imperfect nature of handmade jewelry. Each of my pieces is one of a kind. I love working with sterling silver, semiprecious stones, and vintage findings. In my day job I work at Anthropologie, Inc. but I spend most of my free time making jewelry and trying to develop my business, Villette Jewelry. I attended Moore College of Art and Design for metalsmithing and graduated from Temple University with a degree in English- Creative Writing. If you are interested in any Villette Jewelry products shown or a custom piece, please email VilletteJewelry@gmail.com.
I am always curious to know what one piece of jewelry someone would invest in if they had to choose. Instinctually, I would say I would invest in a good ring above all else yet those are the pieces of jewelry I swap out the most from day to day. Lately, I have been wearing the same earrings, necklace and bracelets every day... so wouldn't I want to invest in really good pieces of those instead since I would be getting more out of my dollar per wear?! Still I would rather spend my money on a really spectacular ring. So I'm curious readers... which piece of jewelry would you choose to invest in? A ring that could work for everyday? A great pair of earrings that works with everything you wear? A necklace that makes you feel fantastic every time you wear it? A bracelet that goes with all of your other jewelry effortlessly?
