My Fabulous Jewelry - Beryl Ann Byrd - Photographer

Fine Art Jewelry Collection

This is to introduce my new line of jewelry.  Everything is one of a kind.  You may find it odd to encounter it on my photography website, but for now, it will live here until it has it's own home, which hopefully will be soon.

I love to incorporate many different objects into my pieces.  Raw gems, polished stones, handcrafted glass, crystals, enamel, and beads.  I want my jewelry to have an organic, flowing, fantasy feeling so you will see a lot of swirly wires popping out of the more structured  wrapped pieces.

Necklaces and bracelets are hand woven using an ancient technique called Viking Knit.  It can take many forms, from a very tight, intricate weave, to a more airy and open one.  Some are thick and heavy, giving a weightier feeling to a piece.  Others are thinner and and more dainty.  All are made to complement the piece or pieces it will be supporting.  Depending on your style, you may choose to use a more simple leather cord for your piece.  This may not always work, as some necklaces and pendants are a completed, statement piece. Just ask!

All of the jewelry in this particular collection is constructed with base metal except for the bezel set cloisonne charms which are either sterling silver or 14k gold.  Wires in the cloisonne are fine silver or 24k gold. 

Commissioned pieces are most welcome.  I encourage you to use your own stones, beads, trinkets, etc. to create a highly personalized treasure.  I will work in Argentium or sterling silver, 14k or 18k gold.  Feel free to e-mail (Contact page) me with questions about costs and options.

Choker Style Necklace Wire Wrapped Oval Jasper Beads, Freshwater Pearls, Ohm Beads

Calming and spiritual, I think.
The centerpiece of this lovely necklace is a wire wrapped grouping of three creamy oval jasper stones threaded with ivory "pearls" ending in a vintage German glass bead and pearl dangle. The pendant is joined to the necklace by a rustic African brass bead from Ghana. A chain of copper links, carved shell Ohm beads and pale Czech glass beads joins with two lengths of copper handmade Viking Knit. A choker style necklace, the length can vary between 14 inches to 17 inches along a copper linked chain with a hook and eye closure.
