Announcement   Hello friends,

I'm currently making pieces by request. If you see something in my sold section that you like, or have an idea for a custom piece, be in touch -- I'd be happy to make something for you.

Peace!

**

Rich Lady Originals is bright, bohemian jewelry made from copper and enamel, silver, leather and brass, and the occasional found object. I like pieces that look fresh but unplaceable, as though they might have been made any time in the last thousand years, once-precious things, worn out and still glittering.

Enameling--essentially melting powdered glass onto metal--is an old, old art. In thin layers, even opaque enamel collects light; enameled jewelry glows, the colors are luminous. I love enamel on copper and have spent a lot of time experimenting with the best way to make jewelry out of it. Using chains and jumprings like traditional jewelry created clattery, jingly pieces that felt fragile. When I began using soft leather cords to suspend the pieces it felt instantly right; I could focus on the art and design of the enameled pieces. I work to make vivid, almost sculptural work that is beautiful to the eye and comfortable in the hand and on the body. I like my enamel a little burned out and imperfect, like worn paint on metal, the look of a useful old object.

Enamel will not fade or discolor, and is more than sturdy enough for everyday wear. It may crack or chip under more extreme conditions, such as being stepped on (which I have done), or smacked against something hard, like a stone countertop, but otherwise should serve you long and well! Should a piece of yours ever develop any issues, please let me know; I like to make sure my pieces have long happy lives. Many thanks for visiting my shop!

Shop policies

Last updated on February 4, 2011
I use new and vintage materials and trimming, as well as silver and copper, to make one-of-a-kind pieces with high style and low pretensions. No occasion is so small that it doesn't deserve its own outfit. The pieces I make are decorations for circumstances, the kind you create when you walk out the door. You will want to be prepared.
