Jewelry is one of my favorite items to shop for because wearing jewelry can make you look terrific as well as be an instant conversation starter all at the same time! I've always been drawn to unique jewelry because I love to make a statement and I've recently discovered a very original line of handcrafted jewelry from Luscious Metals.
Natha Perkins is the artisan and designer behind the wonderful pieces offered at Luscious Metals, and she was generous enough to allow me to review the Blackbird Sterling Silver Necklace. Keep reading to learn more!
Inspired by dreams, confections and fantasies, Luscious Metals handcrafted jewelry is created with an emphasis on shimmering colors, glowing metals, interesting textures and mesmerizing words. Their pieces are designed to evoke in their wearer a certain feeling, a past dream or lovely memory through the combination of metals, stones and words. Luscious Metals wants their jewelry to truly enchant you and to appeal to your sense of delight, color and style.
I must say that the hardest part of conducting this review was simply selecting which of their fabulous styles I wanted to receive. The teacher in me loved the Red Apple necklace, while the romantic in me appreciated the Pierced Heart necklace. In the end, the Blackbird necklace called to me (figuratively speaking) because it reminded me of my fondness of nature as well as my adoration of the Beatles White album and their infamous song "Blackbird".
I was also thrilled at how I was given the chance to customize the gem used in the blackbird's eye with one of 12 birthstones. I chose my own birthstone, which is an emerald, and thought that a green-eyed bird would look beautiful. I was right! The blackbird handcrafted necklace did indeed look gorgeous! The sterling silver bird itself had a delicate feather effect on its outside, while on the other side, the word "blackbird" was inscribed.
One of the neatest parts of this necklace had to be the chain the blackbird pendant came on. The chain was an 18" sterling bead chain with small beads interspersed at regular intervals. Couple this unique chain with the equally unique custom blackbird pendant and you have one well-designed necklace that is sure to turn heads.
If you appreciate handcrafted jewelry like I do, then don't hesitate to choose one of the enchanting selections from Luscious Metals. Because of the materials and craftsmanship, the pieces created by Natha Perkins have timeless style and longevity. Shop Luscious Metals this holiday season for jewelry with both meaning and power!
