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.

About

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!

    One of the most satisfying and magical things about creating jewelry is making a connection with the people who wear your work. Each piece is individual and hand made, with a sense of joy and artisan expression.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

Caring for your Metal and Gemstone jewelry is easy! Just follow these general guidelines.
Always remove your jewelry before bathing, showering, swimming or sleeping.
Never use toothpaste or other abrasives to clean your jewelry.
Store your jewelry pieces separately; I enclose a plastic bag which will delay tarnishing and help with tangling in your storage.
Put jewelry on last after hairspray, lotion, perfume.
If your jewelry needs polishing, use a jewelry care cloth (Sunshine brand or Blitz brand are two examples) which are specifically made to put a gentle shine on your jewelry without damage. They are widely available online and at General retail shops.

All purchases are shipped boxed and appropriate for giving.
