Sterling Silver & glass beads
Get to Know Austin Jewelry Designer: Merritt Gade
Merrit is a metalsmith jewelry designer and works with sterling silver and gold fil to create her jewelry.
“My favorite things to make are tiaras, because of the unique architectural element they allow, the bold materials I get to incorporate, and the delighted surprise of shoppers looking for something different. Hair accessories, like combs, vines, and barrettes, and jewelry items are great way to bring my obsession to a more wearable place. I love to work with silver, gold, gems, and pearls, but have found colorful art wire, glass, shells, and crystals especially fun and important to my creative voice as well.” -Merritt Gade
