BEST Featured Artist: Elizabeth MD Jewelry

Pearlized Beaded Watchband
Good afternoon readers!  Today we would like to introduce you to another great jewelry artist on Etsy.  Meet Elizabeth Duquette, the owner of Elizabeth MD Designs which is based out of Sarnia Ontario, Canada.  A read over her profile lets you know that this artist is very diverse and even a little alternative!  Her work is inspired by not only Victorian, shabby chic, and vintage styles but also other subcultures like Gothic, rockabilly, and psychobilly. 

While her tastes are very eclectic, her jewelry design is united by a common feature: it is very elegant.  So even though Elizabeth is inspired by bold and loud subcultures, the way she expresses herself in her jewelry is subtle and feminine.  This may in large part be due to the fact she uses quality materials like precious and semi-precious gemstones, sterling silver and gold.   For example, these blue swarvoski and chain earrings remind me of chain-mail, which is very masculine.  However the mixture of the long chains and the pretty blue crystals turns these earrings into a beautiful and modern-looking accessory.  Anyone wearing these earrings will therefore make quite a statement without being too eccentric. 

Here are some of our other favorite items from this store:
Fuschia Pink and Copper Necklace
Red Rose Ring 
Surgical Steel Spiral Cuff
