2011 Holiday Gift Guide - (Etsy) Contempo Jewelery Designs

It is always a pleasure working with fabulous Etsy sites,  such as the one I have the pleasure of introducing you to today.  Contempo Jewelry Designs™  specializes in artistic wire working techniques, which consists of mixing wire with semi-precious stones and fresh water pearls.   The result is beautifully designed pieces of unique pieces of jewelery that you more than likely will only find on Contempo Jewelry Designs™.

Each piece of jewelry is hand crafted and designed by Staci Egan herself.  She puts a lot of hard effort,  and pride into her items,  which is evident in her high quality work.  Although she has taken many classes in metal work, glass fusing,  bead stitching,  and precious metal clay she always comes back to her number one love,  wire!  Her passion for creating jewelery all started in 1999 when she purchased a handmade necklace on eBay and decided she can make her own jewelery.  Soon her hobby turned into a full time job.   Contempo Jewelry Designs™ physical shop is located in the historic village of Boalsburg, on the diamond on South Church in a quaint little village.

Take a look around her site and you will find many original pieces of jewelery that are very elegant and classy.  Another thing you will notice is that all of her pieces are extremely affordable.  Her items begin at only $7.00 and range in price up to $65.00.   Contempo Jewelry Designs™ offers beautiful earrings,  lovely necklaces,  cute hair pins,  plastic combs,  unique rings,  and pretty bracelets. They make great gifts to give to women for Mother's Day,  Valentine's Day,  Birthdays,  and of course the upcoming holidays including Christmas! 

I was lucky enough to receive a beautiful pair of Wire Wrapped White Pearl Stud Earrings to review.  I have always been fond of pearls,  but for some reason never purchased a pair of Pearl earrings,  so I was very excited to receive them.   As soon as they arrived I anxiously pulled them out of the  small little white jewelry box.  They looked so dainty and feminine,  just how they were pictured on her Etsy shop.  These classic earrings round 6mm white freshwater pearls are wrapped with a 22 gauge sterling silver wire.  The back of the earrings feature a base metal clutch which can be replaced with thick rubber backs if you have an allergy.

Do you need something customized?   No problem,  sizes,  colors,  stones,  ear wires,  and shapes can all be customized to your perfection! 

BUY IT:  You can purchase the Wire Wrapped White Pearl Stud Earrings for only $10 on Contempo Jewelry Designs™.  Shipping fees are only $2 to ship to the US and $3 to ship everywhere else.
