Jewelry Making at Bloglander - Stones on String LogoAnother jewelry site that I came across recently through indieshopping is Stones on String. Melissa specializes in making handcrafted one-of-a-kind jewelry such as necklaces, bracelets, earrings, anklets and even men’s jewelry.

I like her focus on “natural” looking pieces. While she does make good use of crystals such as Swarovskis as accents, the focus of many of her pieces are earth-toned gemstones and silver single-word “message” beads. A lot of her jewelry is also complemented by leather cord which extends the rustic yet beautiful nature of the designs.

Here’s a little bit about Melissa’s design philosophy from her website:

My style has evolved and I create the type of jewelry that I myself am drawn to. Earthy, natural pieces designed with gemstones and crystals, sterling and gold. Jewelry that is stylish to wear, yet also feeds the soul with beauty as well.

Shown below is the “Learn” Charm necklace which features a single sterling message bead with that word on it, along with Unakite, Carnelian and Jasper accents. Swarovski crystals and a sterling silver chain complete this earthy necklace. The prices at Stones on String are very reasonable, especially considering that many of the items are unique or very limited.
