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 have long wanted to learn how to properly sketch jewelry design ideas. I have never been very good at traditional art (sketching, painting, etc.) and sadly my jewelry sketch book looks like nothing more than doodles. Even more of a tragedy is that some ideas I "doodled" years ago are now lost in my inefficient way of capturing my ideas. I've bought some books on the subject but get lost after the first couple of pages, which leads me to think I need to take a class or learn in a more visual way. I can only wish that one day my jewelry sketches look like works of art on their own!
