Welcome to RedAvaDesigns! I design and create handcrafted earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings using vintage and contemporary beads and components, natural stones, handmade and hand-forged enamel, sterling silver, and bronze jewelry. Most of my sterling silver pieces are crafted from recycled sterling silver.
RedAvaDesigns consists of three original and distinctive jewelry lines:
1. Vintage Reimagined: I seek unique vintage components from all over the world in order to repurpose them into modern jewelry with a retro flair.
2. Modern Enamel: I add a unique and modern flavor to an ancient and beautiful art form, utilizing a variety of new techniques.
3. Organic Metals: Hand-formed, stamped, and hammered sterling silver and copper jewelry utilizing stunning, semi-precious stones, as well as jewelry created from materials such as sea creatures, seed pods, and vintage components, in bronze and sterling silver, using lost-wax casting.
Please note that all silver ear wires are sterling, unless otherwise noted. Antique brass, copper, and gun metal ear wires are lead and nickel-free. For silver earrings, please specify sterling silver or surgical steel ear wires. A free gift box is included with your order.
Many of our earrings can be converted to a post, or a screw or clip-on earring. Just ask!
Every week, pieces that are specially priced at up to 50% off!
