Il Mare opened on ArtFire.com 4-10-09 and sells some absolutely beautiful handcrafted jewelry. Their Biography reads: "Il Mare Atelier was created out of a desire to fuse art and jewelry into unique, versatile, yet wearable and affordable pieces. Inspired by the beauty of nature and art, my jewelry creations are for the woman who prefers the thoughtfulness of an artisan's touch to off-the-peg designs.
I take great pride in the materials I use, always searching for the finest quality gemstones and durable materials.
“Il Mare” means “the sea” in Italian, with waters shimmering in an array of hues, from the blue of the deep sea to lighter azzurro, pale sea green and brilliant emerald. “Atelier” means “workshop” in French. Put together, they mean “Studio by the Sea”, perfectly apt for the tiny tropical island that I live on.
Thank you for taking an interest in my art. Do visit my Gallery for some of my past sold pieces.
I hope you will find something that appeals to you and if you require any customisation or adjustment, please do not hesitate to reach out to me via the "CONTACT ARTISAN" link."
