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.
Made this necklace this past week, consisting of hammered brass wire and oxidized sterling silver chain inspired by a lot of Art Deco prints I was looking up on Pinterest. It still needs a few adjustments, like opening the loops on the chain to provide a better slide and possibly shortening the longer piece to accommodate the most common necklines I wear. I am such a stickler about fit even when it comes to jewelry, something I think many people don't acknowledge often. (Nothing bothers me more then when a clasp is heavier than the pendant and it pulls at the back of your neck!) Regardless of the few adjustments needed, I am in love with this piece and am brainstorming different configurations, shapes and patterns. How stunning would this be translated into another piece:
