About My Jewelry
Welcome to DesignsByMartha, a place for unique and exquisite earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Each piece is a lovingly handcrafted, one of a kind, small work of art. I enjoy gathering the stones and beads for my pieces during my travels. Semiprecious stones include black onyx, garnet, amethyst, quartz, rhodonite, amber, turquoise, coral, lapis lazuli, jade, malachite, agate, labradorite, hematite and many more. I mix these stones with freshwater pearls, Chinese cloisonné, Austrian swarovski crystal, Venetian glass, fire polished Czech glass, and sterling silver from Bali and Thailand.
I combine these elements with lamp-work and diachronic beads, sterling silver and copper pendants. Consequently each piece is a singular creation. My designs are simple and timeless. They make unique gifts for friends, family or just for yourself!
My dog, Fritz enjoys helping me and sits faithfully by my side while I'm working. He is a real inspiration!
Remember, unlike catalog or department store jewelry, these items are truly one of a kind and once sold will not, and usually cannot be duplicated. Thank you for considering my jewelry, enjoy browsing and visit often as my selection is constantly changing.
