I've always been a big fan of hoops. I was looking for a pair of large gold hoops that is not too heavy but also as a statement piece. I then came across this beautiful piece. This is so understated but eye-catching and oh so light, I can barely feel it. Plus, it is so unique, so unlike my other hoops. This is my new go-to daily jewelry. Definitely will be buying more in different sizes in the future.

The earrings are gorgeous and light weight. The seller was kind, professional and assisted me when I had an issue with the shipping. Couldn't recommend more!

About

obsessively handcrafted jewelry

I accidentally discovered my passion for jewelry design many years ago when I received a pair of earring as a gift. I liked them but they didn't look quite right so I took an x-acto blade and pair of tweezers to them (do not try this at home, I'm sure I cut myself) and adjusted them til they hung the way I wanted. That led me to buying vintage jewelry and disassembling and reassembling into new pieces. When I moved to South Carolina I discovered bead stores. Who knew there was such a thing?? I was captivated...and still am. I have since taken several courses and graduated from x-acto blade to pliers of all manner...and a hammer.

I am completely self taught and flow with my evolving style as it has progressed over the years from working mainly with beads, using color and shape to design to my current wire work. I sit for hours hammering silver and gold fill wire in to submission. It thrills me to take a length of wire and transform it into a beautifully elegant teardrop hoop or circular pendant. The hammering along with creativity gives the metal energy and the result is a subtle statement. Quiet but eye catching.

Then I can't stop there. I have to embellish to add movement to the energy. All my bracelets have a drop at the clasp that moves with you. My earrings are assembled with links and wire wrapping to give them more movement and I add a drop, usually labradorite (my favorite) to the extender chain of my necklaces. I feel the back of the necklace is as important as the front because you need to look good coming and going.

Welcome to my Etsy Shop. All of my jewelry is designed and handmade by me in my Rochester, NY studio. I use beads and semi-precious gems that I have collected at shows or shops over the years in my travels around the US and Europe. My designs are created using 14/20kt gold filled and sterling silver wire and components. If there is another metal used, usually good quality brass it will be noted in the description. I have created several original ear wire designs which I think compliment my work and complete the overall appearance of each design. I have spent many years perfecting my technique which has created the Bellanti Jewelry style. My pieces reflect this quality and attention to detail making them your "go-to" jewelry again and again.
