Unique handmade Sterling Silver art jewelry ∗ Earrings, Rings, Pendants, Brooches, Necklaces, Pins ∗ Birthstone Pendants Birthstone rings ∗ Contemporary ∗ Inspired by nature ∗ semi-precious stones ∗ Sterling Silver Patinas

Welcome to Serendip Designs Jewelry! I make all of my jewelry in my studio tucked into the woods of Montana's Rocky Mountains. The beauty of nature around me inspires most of my work, whether it be a majestic moose crafted in sterling silver or an abstract spiral reflecting the silvery swirlings of a mountain stream. My favorite medium is Sterling Silver. I may saw it, shape it, cast it, solder it as it becomes your new earrings, pendant or pin. I may adorn it with semi-precious stones or, on occasion, glass beads. Your beautiful adornment may be polished to a high shine, brushed to a warm glow, or it may be finished with my own unique patina. Whichever techniques I have used to create the pieces you choose, you can be assured that you have chosen a unique and finely crafted piece of art jewelry.

I love, love, love this necklace! I didn't open it until yesterday because it was a birthday present. It is beautiful and I really like the cord (it feels weightless and doesn't tangle my hair!)

Wish I could give it 50 stars! Over a month ago I ordered a birthstone necklace from another seller and after three weeks of no communication had to request the order be cancelled. So I was a bit apprehensive to order again from this site. This purchase restored my faith in humanity! Super fast, great communication and a very beautiful piece! I cannot wait to order something else from her.

About

Serendip Designs Jewelry

Welcome to Serendip Designs Jewelry!
My shop home page: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SerendipDesignsJewel

I live in the woods near scenic Glacier National Park where I create my Sterling Silver jewelry of wildlife and whimsical designs that reflect the natural world of the mountains and coastal Northwest that inspire me. I’ve done artwork and design all of my life, just for the love of it, and in 1990 decided to make it my living. My jewelry has evolved over the years, but has always reflected the things I love, and the things that make me laugh; wildlife, animals, the mountains and the sea, music, and the basic forms of nature such as spirals. Each piece is a unique work of art that I hand cut or forge or twist from sterling silver or cast from my handmade originals. I enjoy making a variety of earrings, pendants, necklaces, rings and brooches, and love playing with the colors of gemstones, patinas, and crystals. The custom birthstone necklaces and rings that I sell here on Etsy are a constant source of color inspiration with the variety of birthstones unique to each family.

I like keeping my business small so that I can focus on the artistry that goes into each piece of jewelry. When not creating jewelry, I enjoy painting, kayaking, hiking, and snowshoeing.

Jewelry Care:
My jewelry is handmade and may be damaged if worn during heavy manual labor working with chemicals or anything else that may cause it to be banged or mashed or snagged or abraded. Please wear and enjoy your jewelry often, and when you are not wearing it, store it properly in a small plastic bag to prevent the precious metals from tarnishing. Also keep your jewels away from chemicals.

Caring for sterling silver jewelry:
Sterling silver is a precious metal and will naturally tarnish when it is exposed to oxygen. To keep its shine, keep it in an air tight plastic zippy bag when you are not wearing it. Or, if it is already tarnishing, simply use a polishing cloth.

Caring for gemstones:
Keep your semi-precious gemstone jewelry separate from diamond jewelry. Diamonds are the hardest stones and if they come into contact with softer stones, they may cause scratches and marks.

Wholesale inquiries welcome.
