I now offer non-anodized and hypoallergenic niobium french style ear wires for most earring designs. Please request when ordering. Niobium is 99.99% pure. It does not react to skin chemistry, and will never corrode or tarnish. It is the safest metal for allergy sufferers to wear.

It is a pure element, not combined with any other metal. It does not cause problems that alloys may cause. Even if you have never been able to wear metal jewelry comfortably, you will be able to wear Niobium.

My shop is about creating one of-a-kind pieces that are modern, earthy and sometimes a little bohemian. Its about earthy, organic style jewelry that can be worn everyday.

Making handmade jewelry started as a hobby and turned into a passion of mine. The ability to create with my hands and turn plain wire into something visually much more interesting is something I value greatly. A "muse", by definition, is a person who serves as an artist's inspiration. The creations seen on these pages are born from my own muse-mine happens to be very nice to me and she sends me a constant stream of ideas! I focus on color and form in much of my work and how it "all flows". I enjoy hand forging most of my metalwork and occasionally use very special and unique findings-adding more diversity to the designs I can create. I am grateful for the ability to see these visual ideas "pop into my head" and turn them into real items that I can share. Made in Steamboat Springs, CO USA.

What does My Muse Jewelry choose Argentium Silver?
Argentium silver 935 is a modern sterling silver alloy, containing 93.5% silver, in which the traditional alloy (92.5% silver + 7.5% copper) is modified by removing some of the copper and adding the metalloid germanium.
Benefits:
-Firescale elimination
- High tarnish resistance
-Precipitation hardening and simple heat-hardening properties
- Increased ductility
- Increased thermal and electrical resistance (making alloys suitable for welding and laser forming)
-Environmental advantages (associated with not having to remove or plate over firescale)

SHIPPING:
My Muse Jewelry will try to ship in-stock items within 2 days of payment. All jewelry will be shipped inside a kraft brown jewelry box and I put a nice ribbon on each one. I ship USPS First Class 2-5 day delivery for regular shipping. Larger orders may take longer.

About

Hand Made Jewelry inspired by My Muse

I have been, and still am on most days, a graphic designer. After many years of working in 2 dimensions I felt a nagging to be more creative, to be more spirited and spiritual with the work I do. In the midst of hectic family life, the organized chaos of raising teenagers I began to escape for "jewelry creation" in the evenings. It's a habit that formed and one that I do daily because it is what I love to do.

I love metal smithing, beading, working with color and texture, creating one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces, much like some family members in generations past. My "day job" as a graphic designer helps keep my ideas flowing and making handmade jewelry allows me the creative freedom that most artists crave. I like to believe that we all have a creative Muse, one who helps us through our creative blocks and gives us a burst of creative energy when we need it most. The opportunity to create for ourselves and for others is a gift.

I enjoy incorporating lots of color into my work and working with fusing wire and wire wrapping and metalsmithing. I have a love relationship with all kinds of beads and silver and cannot resist colorful gemstones. In my work I try to combine different elements to design jewelry that can be fun to wear as well as comfortable to wear. Form, function and aesthetic all have to work together.
I appreciate your visit to my shop and hope that you see something that may inspire you.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Custom orders are always welcome. Whether its a different size, different metal or a special gemstone, I am happy to help. I also offer hand stamping for personalization. Send me a convo and I can answer any questions you may have and let you know the possibilities.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each piece of jewelry is packaged in a kraft brown or white box with a ribbon and tag.

Wholesale availability

I am happy to discuss selling my work wholesale to gift shops and retail stores. Please contact me for minimum order and pricing information. My my email is mm@mymusejewelry.com

Sizing details

My handmade jewelry is made one piece at a time so there may be slight variations in size and color even when you purchase a set of two or more pieces.

Care instructions

While all jewelry is fragile, I have pride in the craftsmanship I put into each piece. For silver polishing I recommend using a Sunshine Cloth and rubbing gently along the silver. Please contact me if you would like to purchase one of these from my store.
