Welcome to Artistic Jewelry by PLT. I enjoy making unique and artistic jewelry. My jewelry is stylish, practical and durable. I make it to last. I have always been creative, taking crafts in grammar school and selling my line of earrings in college to pay for my tuition over thirty years ago. My father and mother were both artistic and lovers of the arts and music. I have taken numerous metalsmithing classes and after raising two children and retirement from a Regional Director career, I am pursuing my passion for all things jewelry on a full-time basis.
I get my inspiration from nature, the ocean and the sky. I am the type that will search the beach looking for interesting fossils, rocks and shells for my ever-growing rock collection. I enjoy looking at semi-precious gemstones and imagining how I can accent their intrinsic beauty. I take care to find unique semi-precious gemstones, interesting findings and I use my metalsmithing skills to create one-of-a-kind pieces just for you. I only use sterling silver, gold, gold-filled or hypoallergenic earwires. My goal is to create a piece of art that will express your unique style and enhance your beauty. In other words, my work is a unique artistic expression of adornment for the wearer.
My favorite mediums are pearl knotting, Viking knitting, wire wrapping, and stone setting. Working with my hands is relaxing and the problem solving that is involved in creating a piece that will pique your interest is the ultimate reward. Enjoy my shop and look for new one-of-a-kind items on a regular basis.
