RedAvaDesigns is an eclectic line of jewelry, objects, and art designed and created in Chicago, Illinois, using traditional and non-traditional metalsmithing and enameling techniques. My work includes vintage and contemporary beads and components, natural stones, hand-forged enamel, sterling silver, copper, brass, and bronze. Many pieces are one of a kind.

My influences range from Art Deco and Mid-Century Modern design to Surrealism and Asian art. I love the beauty of natural and organic forms and patterns, and often incorporate these images, shapes, and colors into my work. My goal is to create unique and affordable art that you can wear and use every day, and that creates a personal connection.

Most sterling silver pieces are crafted from recycled sterling silver. Please note that all silver ear wires are sterling, unless otherwise noted. Antique brass, copper, and gun metal ear wires are lead and nickel-free. A free gift box tied with ribbon is included with your order.

Many of our earrings can be converted to a post, or a screw or clip-on earring. Just ask!

Here are some recent customer reviews:

"I had been looking for a silver necklace, something really unique. I have purchased from this artisan before and have been thrilled with her work. I ordered the Gypsy Woman pendant and was thrilled with the piece. It is stunning. Quality is excellent. Prompt delivery. Will definitely be visiting this shop's site in the future."

"I now have three pairs of earrings from this shop, love them all. These are so well-crafted, with beautiful subtle color. Light too, easy to wear."

"I ordered these beautiful earrings and absolutely love them! They are unique, one of a kind pieces, and I’ve have been getting compliments already. Thank you Roslyn!"

"My new earrings arrived quickly and beautifully packaged. They are spectacular and well made. I highly recommend this shop. Thank you!"

"Amazing Earrings! Got them in sterling silver. Roslyn was a delight to talk to and gave very helpful information on the shipping. Thank you! Will definitely buy again..."

"All of the earrings I have purchased from RedAvaDesigns are unique, enchanting, and of the highest quality. They make great gifts, but I always have to get at least one item for myself. I love the vintage styles and the special properties of the materials."

My Rivulets Bowl has been accepted in the 2019 Jewelry and Metalsmithing Survey (JaMS) publication. The Jewelry and Metals Survey is the Society of North American Goldsmith’s (SNAG) annual survey of jewelry and metals in contemporary art, architecture, craft, and design created in the previous year by emerging and established artists, selected by a jury of experts including curators, artists, designers, gallery owners, and historians. In showcasing approximately 200-juried objects, each publication highlights the wide range of current ideas and making practices in the field of jewelry and metals.

On Etsy since 2010

Modern Design, Vintage Style

Welcome to RedAvaDesigns on Etsy! I design an eclectic range of jewelry using vintage beads and components, semi-precious stones, hand-forged enamel, copper, sterling silver, brass, and bronze, all handmade in Chicago. Whether it’s that perfect statement piece, or something fun and edgy, I want to create unique and affordable art that you can wear, and that you won’t find anywhere else.

My influences range from Art Deco and Mid-Century Modern design to Surrealism and Asian art. I also appreciate the beauty of natural and organic forms and patterns, and try to incorporate these images and shapes into my work.

RedAvaDesigns consists of three original and distinctive jewelry lines:

1. Vintage Reimagined: Unique vintage components from all over the world repurposed them into modern jewelry with a retro flair.
2. Modern Enamel: Modern techniques revitalize an ancient and beautiful art form.
3. Organic Metals: Hand-formed, stamped, and hammered sterling silver and copper jewelry utilizing stunning, semi-precious stones, as well as jewelry created from natural materials and vintage components, in bronze and sterling silver, using lost-wax casting.

Sign up for my VIP mailing list to see the latest pieces I am working on and be eligible for exclusive deals available only to mailing list subscribers, as well as jewelry tips and inspiration! You'll also see my art show schedule: www.redavadesigns.com.

Look around - I hope you find something you will love to wear!
