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 been gathering some great leather bracelet inspiration and am so excited about learning a new technique and to use more of this wonderful material. I am having so much fun figuring out different ways to add clasps and finish off the pieces (such a nerd, I know!). There are so many different ways... buckles, stitching, knots, clasps, holes, buttons, grommets! And adding in other decorative details to the mix is inspiring me to make many different versions of a leather wrap bracelet. Here are a few pieces that are particularly inspiring me. I love this bracelet (featured above) for it's simplicity and the use of the clasp as a focal decoration.
I love this idea of using sheet metal for initials or other lettering.
