Monday Morning Mosaics

Copper and steel, silver and bronze. Today's Mosaic is all about artisans that work with metal.

Whether forging or wrapping, molding or pounding, these artisans create amazing designs with their own unique flair and personal style.



Moon Raven Designs - Jewelry with an Edge Inspired by Nature

Michael R Doyle from Victoria, BC, Canada

A self-taught full-time wildlife artisan since 1974 inspired by the beauty of nature and with a special affinity for crows and ravens in particular. In this shop you will find a variety of creative pieces from caste raven skulls to remarkably detailed metalwork pendants, rings and more with themes based in nature such as claws and skulls, hearts and anatomy pieces, animals, reptiles, etc.


SteelMyArt - RCustom Metal Art

Steel My Art from Rogue Valley, Oregon

Having years of experience with metal-working from mechanics to freelance iron contracting, this artisan creates a variety of unique handcrafted ironwork pieces from wall art to signage for homes, farms and more. A husband and wife team, they work together to offer one of a kind custom designs including special orders.


Gailavira - Quality Handcrafted Jewelry

Donna Spadafore from Dayton, Ohio

Remarkable wire-work jewelry! This artisan shows an amazing talent with wire that's demonstrated in every piece of jewelry offered in her shop. These handmade artisan jewelry pieces are designed using sterling silver, copper and gemstones in styles that range from everyday-wear to gorgeous artwork to wear.


mikelange3 - Copper Works by William Lange

William Lange from Owatonna, Minnesota

Custom handcrafted copper work sculptures, fountains, birdhouses, planters, home decor and art designed and backed by 35 years of experience. These pieces are perfect for indoor or outdoor use and the artist offers a wide variety in his shop. The birdhouses in this shop are particularly breathtaking in my opinion.


I hope you enjoyed this tour through a few of the amazing artisans and artists on Etsy whose metalwork and creative spirit has caught my eye and hopefully yours too!
