christinebossler is a wonderful Etsy artisan. She is a metalsmith concentrating on jewelry that features some interesting and painstaking techniques. Granulation, the process of fusing tiny round balls of metal onto your pieces, is one of her specialties. See the example below:
This necklace is my favorite from her shop. Of course, I love illusion style necklaces using freshwater pearls, and I've made a few myself, but none as intricate as this. And check out the clasp!
Now here's a cool item: earrings made with silicone and manipulated hair extensions, part of a series on what makes beauty in our culture. Pretty cool, but I didn't know hair extensions came in that vibrant shade of red!!
Come check out this shop.
