Be free-floating, allowing the situation to surround you, and be in it. Take in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water.

Friday's Family Jewels - Sculptural Jewelry in Copper and Silver

Bridget, my very talented and wonderful mother-in-law as you may remember, is always one for experimenting and pushing herself creatively in any way her heart leads. 

This limitless inspiration has yielded some beautiful jewelry, among other things, and today I wanted to show you her Silver and Copper Sculptural items.

Starting with the Copper - the shapes and texture she got when she poured these is just amazing. Celestial feeling and certainly completely unique.

Copper Planet Pendant
                           

Silver Sculpture Topaz Brooch 


Her first brooch, this Topaz and Sterling Silver piece is perfect with that scarf, or on your lapel, hat, wherever. 

She simply let the silver lead the way, and came up with a wonderful piece.




Now for the Silver Sculpture Pendants. These are completely one of a kind and unique, from Bridget's own limitless imagination.
Art that you can wear.

Turquoise in the Rough Sculpture Pendant
The mind conjures skies, shapes, scenes, oceans, and animals, and Bridget brings it all to life. 
Dolphin Playground Sterling Silver Pendant

This collection shows a playful side to Bridget, and truly shows what a skilled metal smith she has become. Her bee stamp is the icing on the playful cake.


I have a hard time picking my favorite, because as the mood changes, so does the feelings that each evokes. I do know they all have a special place in a wonderful collection of Sculptural Jewelry from Jewelry by Bridget


Which is your favorite?

  3. Copper planet is my favorite. Funny, since I'm always drawn to silver, though I love those pieces as well. What creativity and pushing of limits here, love them all.
