Dea Shelton began working with jewelry in the 1970's. She has worked with painting, sculpting, mixed media, metal smithing, sterling and pure silver. Her art and jewelry have been featured in books, magazines, online, Juried Fine Art Fairies and on her local television station. She has used her knowledge of art and jewelry making to create her line of fine costume jewelry. Each piece is crafted with care and she takes the time to make a quality piece of costume jewelry that you can wear for many years. The beads are Swarvoski or Glass Crystals and are wire wrapped. The loops are turned properly and the metal patinas match. The images are either under glass cabachons or industrial grade resin. The images are printed on quality paper and are sharp and clear.
Every piece on her site is lovely. From Alice in Wonderland to the Wicked Witch of the West, Blackberry Designs has a good selection of bracelets, earrings and necklaces that will be sure to attract notice. Each and every one of them are literally wearable works of art.
