Inside Will Alderfer Metalart’s Etsy shop, you will find beautiful gold, silver, and copper jewelry that’s filled with rustic charm. The designs are simple and classic with lots of interesting texture – perfect for every day wear. Will has a degree in metals and is now a full-time artisan. You will find his designs at local Vermont vendors and online via Etsy and his website. Will also creates custom rings that range in price from $200-$20,000! His designs are beautiful and are crafted to match the recipients personality and style. Here are a few of my favorites from his Etsy shop.
Will sent two pairs of earrings for me to review. The first pair are sterling silver rectangles with a hammered finish. The texture makes a simple shape more interesting and still leaves some of that silver shine that I love so much. The rectangles measure one inch long, which is a great length to be noticed without being too long.
Next up, are these beautiful and unique blue patina circle earrings. The aged look of the patina is complimented by shiny copper ear wires and the combination is stunning. It’s a little bit of that rustic charm mixed with sophistication. Love it! I’m excited to wear these with a chunky black sweater this winter. The patina has little hints of black throughout, so pairing it with a black top will really make that blue color pop even more.
I also wanted to comment on the ear wires on both pairs of earrings. The length is longer and the shape is more curved than other pairs that I own, so they stay in my ears so much better! Usually I’m readjusting earrings like this or I need a little clear back to keep them in place, but these earrings stay put. Love!
