Featured Artist: MaggieMays

Happy July 4th, Everyone. My family and I have just finished a great American 4th of July hamburger feast. We watched the fire works last night and are now settling down for some relaxation.

I know most of you are still out enjoying a wonderful family holiday, so I decided to have my next blog ready for your return. My Featured Artisan this week: MaggieMays.

MaggieMays Fine Jewelry is a member of the ItsBetterHandmade Guild on Artfire. She and her husband work out of their home in Florida, designing stunning, top quality jewelry for the discerning shopper. As MaggieMay's puts it, "My whole reason for making jewelry is not only that I love to create; but knowing that a finished design will make you or your sweetheart happy owning a creation made especially for you!" You can certainly see evidence of this in her work.

Above you'll see a Ribbon Diamond Ring with 5 rows of baguettes and round cut diamonds in a channel twist that is accented by the 10k yellow gold. 45 beautiful diamonds put on quite a light display.

A gorgeous set of earrings in Zandrite. One of the things I particularly like about MaggieMaysshop is that I always learn something more about gem stones. For example, here is an interesting bit of info from MaggieMays: "Zandrite, a manmade gemstone, is a translucent gem which reflects light and has a very unique similarity to mystic topaz iridescence."

MaggieMays uses stunning, mesmerizing, precious, semi-precious gemstones, pearls, diamonds, crystals and bead jewelry in modern, elegant, sophisticated and classic designs with a touch of elegance. You'll find true Fine Jewelry castings designed using precious metals, such as, 10K gold, 14K gold, .925 sterling silver, Gold/Sterling, and Oxidized Silver.

And one of my favorites, purple, of course:

MaggieMays has such a wide selection of beautiful, well-made items, I could show you examples all day, but I'd rather you take a peek at her shop for yourself. You won't regret the time!
