Sterling Silver Handcrafted Flower Garden Rings - Better than a Bouquet!


Flowers...I love them! 
Flower bouquets, though lovely, make me a bit sad. They just fade too fast :/

But, with proper care, these flower garden inspired rings can last a lifetime!! 

Check my MosaicSmith website for available Flower Garden jewelry.
Search around while you are there. 
You will find I make much more than rings with flowers! Earrings, bracelets, pendants...

Sterling Silver Rings Finished to Your Size

I've created a new section in my shop for rings finished to your chosen size.

Currently, the three ring tops pictured are listed. More coming soon!! I have chosen a band style for each ring, you just choose your size at checkout. I will then add the band and have it on its way to you in 3-5 business days. Or sooner! 

You will receive the exact ring top pictured. In the photos, the stones are not set in their bezels yet since that is the last step after adding the band.

Hammered Twisted and Stamped Copper Bangle Bracelets

I've been making copper bangles for a while, but I've just added a new twist style.

This twist is available individually, or together with two previous styles (hammered and stamped) for a sweet trio that can be made to your size and either patina'd or left bright polished.
Also in my shop are many other bangle bracelets, some with gemstones, plus several other copper styles. The hammered and stamped bangles in the trio above are also available as singles. Great to add to your bangle bracelet stack!

MosaicSmith Makes Jewelry Too!

Looking at my blog, you'd think I've not been creative in quite a while. But, far from it! I've just taken a turn in direction.  And it took me a while to determine if this turn was a short side trip or a long journey in my creative adventures. I'm thinking I'm in for a long enjoyable ride! I hope you'll join me!!

Glance through my mosaic work and you'll see I often work small. Very small! And you will also see the introduction of metal in the form of copper enamel. I have now ventured further into metal and have been working primarily with silver recently.  Many of the same nature themes are cropping up in my jewelry. Flowers and leaves, sailboats and birds... Small, wearable art!

Available pieces are listed on my MosaicSmith website.
