Gems to Color the World

"When I sit down to work with gemstones and metal, it quiets my mind and reminds me that in a world fraught with conflict, art can be a universal language and a bridge between cultures."  Truer words were never spoken, er, written!  This is one line from the profile of an amazingly talented jewelry designer that revels in color and interesting combinations.

SperanzaJewelry is a one woman show that lives and works out of Annapolis, Maryland.  During the day she works for a television news agency, but at night becomes jewelry designer extraordinaire!  Sounds like some sort of superhero!  One of the most interesting things, besides the amazing jewelry that is, is how carefully she chose her business name.  According to her bio, Speranza means hope in Italian which is definitely a feeling that comes alive in her happy designs.

Speranza works in a variety of metals and gems; basically if it is pretty and adds a bit of color to her world, it will be incorporated into her designs.

Ready to see more?  Well, she is easy to find!  Check out her ArtFire Shop, Etsy shop, and for a more personal look at the lady behind the gems, check out her Blog.  But, be prepared to drool!
