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.
Happy belated Mama's Day to all the mothers out there! As a treat to myself for Mother's Day, I gave myself some time in my studio to make this lovely ring. This hammered oxidized ring has Beloved stamped on one side, with my daughter's name stamped on the other. This ring works wonderfully as a stacking ring with it's narrow top and I have been pairing it with a thin diamond band to represent my daughter's birthstone. I love the rough, hand wrought texture of this band in contrast with the refined dainty nature of the diamond band. This is my first attempt at making a ring that sits higher than it is wide, so there were a lot of learns, but overall I am very happy with the outcome. And of course I love commemorating special days with jewelry!
