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.
Hands down my favorite birthstone!!! One of the many reasons I got married in September is so I could incorporate this gorgeous stone into my wedding rings. One of my all time favorite looks is a classic diamond and sapphire Art Deco ring. Nothing says classic Art Deco like a lovely geometric design with diamonds and sapphire detail and I could have posted about a million different rings to represent. But I wanted to make this birthstone post all about sapphires and making sure that stone took center stage. This lovely Art Nouveau ring represents the true beauty of a sapphire, with a lovely warm green gold filigree setting and a rich blue ceylon sapphire.
