Vermont Handcrafted Sterling Silver Pendants
Melissa Flanagan creates jewelry you just long to run your fingers over. They seem to be as much about texture as they are about color and shine. I love her fossil jewelry especially -- in the picture here is a pendant made with an Ammonite fossil, freshwater pearl, and hematite. From her website: "After much experimentation, I have developed a passion for working with fossils, minerals, semi-precious gems, and freshwater pearls in most of my jewelry designs. The color and textures in these beauties of nature are always an inspiration for my work. Highlighting the special qualities of each stone or fossil helps to produce unique and special statements in each piece of jewelry. "
