Handmade Jewelry Artist - Sending Love Gallery on Etsy

14 comments
It is a true pleasure this week to introduce you to Phylly, jewelry designer and creator of Sending Love Gallery

"I love the beauty of the Earth's gifts to us...her gemstones, metals and minerals, shells and pearls. They are wonderful treasures that constantly inspire me in creating jewelry."

Just one visit to her shop and will agree that wonderful treasuries await!

Sendling Love Gallery features many design elements, including semi-precious gemstones (such as her Lilac Amethyst Gemstone Briolette Earrings Sterling Silver

seen in the above picture); pearls, art glass and crystal. But we can't stop there! She also uses a vast array of metals as well - sterling and argentium silver, vermeil, goldfilled, niobium, brass and copper!

I particularly love her detailed shop sections as it makes it simple to navigate find which combination of stone and metals the tickle your fancy! I don't know about you but I love gunmetal finishes and she has a section dedicated to some really beauties. One of my favorites  - this gorgeous Blue Green Fluorite Gemstone and Peacock Freshwater Pearl Gunmetal Necklace. The combination of peacock colored pearl with this gunmetal finish is stunning!


 



Her shop will not disappoint, so be sure to stop by today and see for yourself how special her handmade jewelry is!
