Little Wing Jewelry - custom designs available now!
I've lived in the Colorado Front Range area for over 30 years. I'm the sole proprietor of Little Wing Jewelry which I founded in 2003. My interest in rock collecting began many years ago. I come from a family of rock hounds and as a young girl growing up in rural Northern California I used to accompany my mom and grandpa on rock hunting excursions around the Napa Valley and Lake County areas. I also have a passion for collecting antique jewelry; my grandparents owned an antique shop for many decades in Napa where I spent much of my time as a child. So it was no surprise that many years later I opened an antique shop of my own shortly after moving to Colorado. Much of the jewelry that passed through my hands required restringing or repairing. I became adept at jewelry design out of necessity and my desire to turn someone else's trash in to another's treasure. I learned how to wire wrap and experimented with textured metal and eventually honed my craft in advanced silversmithing techniques. I'm fascinated with the virtually endless variety of stones available and my passion for collecting seems to be endless as well! Stones are the inspiration in many of my jewelry designs and you'll definitely find a diverse selection of jewelry in my store! Designing and making jewelry is something I enjoy tremendously and I'm grateful to have the opportunity to share this joy with others! Happy shopping and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting my small business!
The pieces you see in my store are handcrafted individually by me in my home studio in Niwot Colorado (just outside of Boulder). I use only the highest quality sterling silver, a variety of beautifully cut stones, semi-precious gems and genuine freshwater pearls. I make the settings for the stones using traditional silversmithing techniques; cutting each one from sterling silver sheet metal, soldering, setting stones and hand polishing one at a time. The entire process is very labor intensive but the end result but well worth the effort! I love working my craft and hope you’ll enjoy viewing my collection and perhaps find a special piece that’s just what you’ve been looking for! Custom orders are accepted. I take great pride in my work and if you have a problem with your jewelry purchase I am happy to assist you in a return or repair. At Little Wing Jewelry your satisfaction is guaranteed!
