IKStuart Designs on Artfire

As a member of the ArtFire Metalsmiths Guild, I have the opportunity to share with and learn from some incredibly talented metalsmiths. I.K. Stuart is one artist in this group whose work I really admire. Her one of a kind jewelry is stunning. She has a great eye for stones. Some of my favorite pieces are ones where the stone is the centerpiece, set off by her simple, elegant, and beautifully crafted silverwork. 

These beautiful earrings are a perfect example. The gorgeous agates are held in beautiful, simple silver bezels. The craftsmanship is impeccable.

One of Iris' (the I. of I.K. Stuart) signature pieces is this fabulous pendant. The center feature of this wonderful pendant is a red Sonora Sunset cabochon. It is am amazing stone that Iris describes in detail in her listing.

  1. Wow, gorgeous pieces... I really love the "zen" feeling that the earrings give me, and the pendant is just to die for :)

    Great feature!


  2. Thanks so much for stopping by, Nathalie! A post describing such wonderful work is a joy to write.



  3. Wow - what a surprise!! Thank you Lois for telling the world about my work in your blog. I feel tremendously honored. You showcased two pieces that are my favorites because of the color, pattern, and shape of the stones.

    Thanks again - you've made my week!
