I love these earrings. The pattern on the gold disks is both ancient and modern. They're very well made, too. I'm delighted with them.
Mary Bassham Jewelry - Handmade Artisan Style
Making jewelry is my passion. From the minute I get my hands on the a new piece of sterling silver wire or sheet metal, my imagination starts working overtime. What will this piece of raw metal be transformed into for someone? A ring? A bracelet? A pair of earrings? And when it is worn, what story will it become for the wearer? That's what really motivates me to make lovely objects that people can wear and love forever.
Each piece I make is unique. No matter how uniform the design, there is always some turn of the hammer, some change or bend of wire, a uniqueness of stone or element that makes each piece different from the next. That difference makes me happy and is one of the joys of handmade jewelry. I hope it brings you joy as well!
I studied art in college and earned a BFA in painting. I loved painting and still paint as often as I can. I also earned an MA in education and fine arts and taught Humanities for a number of years. I first worked with metals while working on my MA. After I realized it was so interesting to me, I started taking jewelry courses at my local art center and at craft schools in the southeast. I started Bassham Studios 10 years ago and love every minute I spend in the studio. Thank you for visiting!
