Wings of Light Pendant

“Feet, what do I need you when I have wings to fly,” Friday Kahlo. Our new pendant embraces this idea of flying–following your dreams.  The brass etched image from a photo shoot in Galveston, Texas includes subtle cutouts inviting the “light” of Sterling Silver (Feminine energy) to shine through.  Sterling Silver chain and findings complete the ensemble.

Abstracted Copper Hoop Earrings

I love the practicality and flexibility of hoop earrings. Our new pretties create a variation on this theme. An abstracted photo etched image from the painted churches of Schulenburg, Texas carves a subtle shape on the bold Copper band while Silver ear wires add the finishing touches.  Measurements: 1.5″ tall x 1″ long x .5″ wide.

Gothic Rose Earrings

Breathtaking, awe inspiring and sometimes didactic, stained glass windows hold a special place in my heart.  Medieval and Gothic art was the very first Art History course and the fixture of silica and sand still fascinates my to this day.  Our new NEC pretties are an experiment of light and shade with photo etched brass, interior cut-outs and inlaid Sterling Silver plus Sterling Silver findings.

Tree of Life Pendant

In this new year, with the glorious possibilities of greater expansion, creation, wisdom and divinity, the tree of life can be found in many cultures – Native American,  Egyptian, Celtic, Mesopotamian, and many more. Our new handmade pendant joins the femininity of Sterling Silver with photo etched Copper for healing energy.  The symbol was found in the painted churches of Schulenburg, Texas.  The pendant is 1.25″ tall x .75: wide.

Crescent and Star Hoop Earrings

The waxing and waning moon and crisp cold nights – it is January where the dusting of snow can create a magical fairyland.  Our new pretties remind me of winter, expansive cobalt skies and twinkling stars.

Hoping that your 2018 is peaceful, joy filled and yes, prosperous! Our new NanEdwards creation brings together two new elements for the collection – photo etched metal with gemstones.  Brass graced with the image of a vintage monument joins riveted Sterling Silver and serves as the setting and backdrop for an NEC favorite –  Moss Agate, the stone of prosperity. The trio rest on a Sterling chain. Buy it here: Prosperity Moss Agate Pendant

Rennie’s Rose Earrings

The Scottish designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh known for his spare abstract designs and floral motifs influenced Art Nouveau and early modernism.  In homage to his designs are our latest creations – hand made etched and antiqued copper plaques with prominent roses.  These abstract floral designs join Sterling Silver ear wires and Art Deco gold filled watch findings.

Alice’s Looking Glass Earrings

Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking glass is a fantastical land where everything is topsy-turvy.  The concept that all is not what it seems is apropos not only for our time period but our new jewelry design.    Here, hand blown Early 20th-Century English glass is gently held in place by the exacting tension between copper disk and Sterling Silver that also serve as the ear wires.

Points of Light Earrings

Window and doorways  – new ways of seeing and being….and the journey of Metalsmithing continues with rivets incorporated into NEC designs.  Beginning with a Galveston Texas stained glass window, the photo was edited in Adobe Photoshop, transferred and then etched into Copper (for healing energy).  Two sections include riveted Sterling Silver (for feminine energy) inlay.  Sterling Silver ear wires complete these new earrings and all are hand antique and finished.  Buy them here: Points of Light Earrings
