Unique and Remarkable Jewelery and Pendants

I have to admit. I make a lot of jewelry, and I absolutely love it, but I've never quite mastered the skills involved with wire working. Not that I can't do the basics, and do them very, very well... but when you get into the more complex designs I just haven't found my groove.

The other day I found a jewelry designer that has. In fact, she creates some of the most beautiful pendant mountings I've ever seen, not to mention has wonderful taste when it comes to picking out the pendants and beads to accentuate with her wire working endeavors.

Amanda Houser is the artist behind these beautiful pieces, and it's clear she takes great care in the details of her work and love creating jewelry. Her pieces are beautiful, eye-catching and unique.

She mainly work in stainless steel wire because Surgical stainless steel is hypo-allergic, which means that even if you or the person you're shopping for has a bad reaction to most metals, you have a good chance of that not being a problem with these pieces. Not only that, but stainless steel doesn't tarnish either, nor does it require any special cleaning which makes these pieces not just lovely but durable as well.

Be sure to check out Amanda's shop, Wire Butterfly, to see more of these beautiful pieces she has to offer and don't miss stopping by her profile as well. She has a wonderful amount of information about the artist tucked away there
