Featured Etsy Shop Series: DesignsbyCher


This week I'm taking a look at the etsy shop of  DesignsbyCher where you can find handmade contemporary and vintage style jewelry along with handforged metal designs. This artisan enjoys using gemstones, crystals, artisan lampwork and glass beads - and metalwork wire designs using sterling silver, goldfill, brass and copper in her work. A beautiful example of her gemstone jewelry is her Desert Sands Bracelet. She has other beautiful bracelets using a rainbow of gorgeous stones and beads in her shop.


       
Check out her necklace section for lovely creations such as this pretty necklace Vase of Flowers. Not to be missed are Cher's earrings in a variety of styles, and in every size from petite dangles to long and dramatic.  This artisan enjoys working with metal and handforges many of the earrings wires, clasps and other elements in her jewelry. Take a look at the forged copper necklace below, "Blueberry Swirls" for a beautiful example of her talent with metal. She has even opened a section in her shop so people can buy her handmade findings such as the lovely brass toggle clasp below right.
