DistractionsJewelry's Shop Announcement

I have loved jewelry my whole life. The way to my heart has always been a silver ring, sparkling necklace, arresting earrings. Hours and hours of my life have been spent at silver studios, standing over the cases, handling pearls, picking out the most stunning, most ornate, most fabulous, decadent pieces I could ever afford.

Learning to weave silver jewelry has become a love, then a passion, then an obsession for me. Fourteen hours of wrapping, cutting weaving melts away when I finish, left with a beautiful, well-crafted, handmade piece of work in my hands.

Every piece I make is precious to me. Everything you see was loved and made with care and precision. When I ship a piece, it's less of a sale and more of an adoption. I breathe a sigh of relief when my clients rave about their new treasures, secure in the knowledge that my dear ones have gone to good homes.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my shop and the creations within.. And if you have purchased one, I hope it brings you all of the thrill, the happiness and the pride it has brought me.

Warm regards,

Danielle Forrester
