I’ve been working on a set of matching necklaces and ring sets since the Spring. The interesting part is to incorporate Fine and Sterling Silver with some Gold elements, sometimes 14k Gold, sometimes Brass, and compliment the Vintage Decals, which have a layer of Gold Luster printed onto them. It transforms every piece into one-of-a-kind works of art. Every necklace is different and unique.
“Ceramic artist and chinapainter Melanie Sherman creates beautiful Sterling Silver jewelry pieces, combinied with Gold elements and Porcelain. Decorated with vintage decals from Europe and Asia, these one-of-kind pieces tell the story of historic porcelain wares, used as dinnerware in the 18th century.”
