Etsy Finds: Valerie Tyler Jewelry

Valerie Tyler Collection

Today I wanted to share with you one of my recent finds on Etsy – the Valerie Tyler Collections jewelry shop!  Valerie Tyler is a designer and creator of handmade jewelry.  What immediately attracted me to Valerie’s jewelry was her incorporation of natural elements and symbolism, fused together to form rustic, memorable pieces. Here’s a little bit about Valerie and her jewelry-making process:

“Valerie strives to create jewelry for those who have a love of travel and culture, for women desiring to express a free spirited nature, and to promote a positive attitude.”

“The jewelry combines bohemian style and geometric forms. Techniques used in creation include fold-forming, forging, riveting, chasing, stamping and oxidation to achieve a rustic, almost vintage inspired style.”

Below are two delicate, rustic rings from her collection.  I love how each one of them holds a deeper meaning for me – one through its inspirational symbolism, and the other through a reminder of someone special. 🙂

The Chevron Solstice Ring (left) is a layered ring that’s symbolic of “climbing mountain peaks and successfully reaching the summit and basking in sunlight”.  It’s a wonderful little inspirational piece!  Valerie uses hammer and flame to give this ring a distressed, rustic look.  (It has a sort of ancient, Game of Thrones kinda feel to it, don’t you think?)

The Personalized Two Heart Initial Ring (right) is a super cute two heart ring that can be personalized to hold two initials, either your own, or those of someone close to you.  It’s delicate and charming, and has a slightly vintage feel to it.  Makes a great gift for a friend, girlfriend, wife, or mother!
