Opal Jewelry - Yummy Opal Bracelets !

Opal jewelry is making a major comeback and with the stunning, glowing Welo Opal I've found in shades of golds, blues, greens and browns at the gemshows lately l'm not surprised!

I've made several bracelets that I'm sharing.

This piece features gorgeous organic and earthy shades of browns and golds with flashes of red, gold and green. It is constructed with 24k gold vermeil (24k gold over sterling) Bali daisy spacers. Click on image for more info:

This gorgeous, glowing piece is a beautiful azure sea blue. Click on image for more info on this piece: (UPDATE: this piece is sold but can be recreated if you like). You can contact me through my LOVELY LUXE JEWELS store.

Wanna Checkout Some Really Bad Ass Designer Jewelry!? I'm Re-Visiting My Heirloom Line

I have been a jewelry designer for almost 30 years now.

Before Lovely Luxe Jewels came to be I had my own private heirloom collection of jewelry that did very well... being sold at several galleries and boutiques and most fondly remembered the St. Petersburg Fine Arts Museum. I also had pieces featured in several books and magazines.

I felt pretty happily successful as an artist *grin* but well, you know change is a universal constant! When the recession hit it certainly removed my rose colored glasses!

Over the last 5 years I had slowly revamped my line into a more accessible, streamlined, understated design (ie: more affordable) and it became Lovely Luxe Jewels.

Recently I have felt the pull to revisit my original line and have started designing my more bold statement pieces again. I wanted to show off a few of my favorite pieces I've created and sold over the years:

I will be listing new statement jewelry in a new section of my shop titled "Heirloom": Heirloom Pieces Cary Martin Designs.
