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.
Very much in love with mourning rings lately and newly added to my wishlist! I have been searching hard for one to buy that is my size (they usually cannot be resized based on the enamel design around the ring) and within my price range but am having a hard time finding ones without hair in the design (hair from the deceased beloved was often woven and used in the design of these rings). Confession time... hair art completely creeps me out! I am so in love with these enamel designs though, that I will continue to hunt for just the right piece! (Above are two examples of mourning ring designs that I am head over heels in love with, from here and here.)
