I'm not a big jewelry person. I wear the same necklace and earrings almost every day, but there is something truly cool and unique about these handmade metal pieces. They have that polished-but-not-trying look that makes them feel confident yet subtle. Their natural hues make them a good match for almost any outfit.
The cuff is from Studebaker Metals, a metalsmith workshop located right here in Pittsburgh. Everything they make is hand forged using antique anvils and classic methods. You will not find anything quite like their timeless, high-quality pieces anywhere else.
The necklace is from Ten Thousand Villages, a store that sells fair trade crafts and housewares from makers in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East. There is one located right on Forbes Avenue in Squirrel Hill in Pittsburgh.
