Meet Your Maker: Elisa Shere Jewelry

Jewelry is a girl's best friend, right? Isn't that how the saying goes? And anyway, who needs diamonds when the jewelry is beautiful enough to stand on its own?

Elisa Shere Jewelry is just that: unique and attractive pieces that go beyond simply holding a precious stone in place.

Ms. (Metal) Smith
"My work is metalsmithed using hot or cold connections (never glue). Each piece of my jewelry is handcrafted from raw materials such as sterling sheet and wire and will last a lifetime, with proper care. I love to hunt high and low for unusual vintage elements to incorporate into my work. My work is currently an exploration of flower and pebble shapes."

Why we love her
"I love the relationship that women have with their jewelry. It makes us feel beautiful, feminine, powerful. It effects us in many ways, and even if a piece doesn't cost thousands of dollars, it is still precious to us. My biggest goal in jewelry making is to design something that becomes somebody's most treasured possesion. This is what inspires me to make jewelry."

Find Elisa Shere Jewelry on Etsy, and on 21 November at the Holiday Heist at The Soundry!
