An Etsy search for metalwork jewelry in Indiana led me to discover today’s shop, Memory Muse.  I was immediately drawn to the natural beauty and one-of-a-kind style of absolutely everything in the shop.  Each piece is truly a work of art and certainly unique.  I had a really difficult time choosing my favorite pieces to share here!  Owner, Sherry, describes her pieces in detail and really makes you feel the thought & care she puts into every piece.  She pays a lot of attention to detail, and it shows.

What is the story behind your shop name?
The name of my shop Memory Muse is a very personal title. When I was beginning metalsmith, my mom was my muse. She encouraged me, was excited about my accomplishments, and always had great ideas for a new jewelry pieces. I lost my beautiful mom recently, and it was thru my memories of her that the muse is still alive.

How long does it take to make a piece of jewelry?
When I am in my studio, I will see shapes that I need to make. I’ll saw out an oval, and decide it needs texture. Maybe it will also get a fire patina. And then, that piece will sit on a special shelf for me to look at until it ‘speaks’ to me and says what it wants to be! So sometimes, a piece can take weeks to make:) Other times, ideas come fast and I can make a piece in a couple hours. It’s that muse thing…:)
