I always had an interest in and admiration for Art Deco design. In the early 1900s designers began to use crystal, semiprecious stones and enamel in different colors and geometrical shapes. The approach to jewelry design was thus changed, and from that time on, what counted were beauty and craftsmanship rather than cost and carats.
What intrigues me the most in Art Deco period jewelry is the use of pure geometry, simplified lines and textures. I love the look of dynamic symmetry, and I love to make necklaces that dangle.
You can buy this Art Deco inspired one-of-a-kind necklace on my online jewelry shop.
In this “Roaring Art Deco” necklace I mixed angular geometric blue Chalcedony stones with manmade Hemalyke rounds, natural Botswana Agate oval cabochons and silk tassels. I used triangular shapes made from glass seed beads to go with interesting shapes of semiprecious stones.

Cape Cod jewelry collection by Ezartesa.
There on Cape nature offers huge inspiration. Sandy shores, spectacular sunsets, magical waves, mild sea breezes, beautiful seashells and stunning gardens are creative force in my Cape Cod jewelry collection.
My self and locals love carefree lifestyle on Cape Cod and have a special connection with the outdoors. It seems everybody appreciate simple things: running barefoot on the beach, fishing, gathering seashells and colorful stones, spending time with friends and family.
I wanted to ensure that nothing in this Cape Cod jewelry collection is “too pretty” and every piece contains a story and joyful memories. Beauty, not luxury, is what I value.
You will find my Cape Cod jewelry collection in a kaleidoscope of hues; subtly shifting colors one to another. I use very wearable palette of colors (black, cream, sand, brown, grey, sea green, ocean blue) in my absolutely one of a kind designs. Seashell necklaces, nautical bracelets, coral earrings would go with every thing you already have in your closet, from a pair of jeans and a tee-shirt to more formal, sophisticated wardrobe. My designs could be easily paired with other gold or silver jewelry.
Three cornerstones for my Cape Cod jewelry designs are: extraordinary craftsmanship, highest-quality materials, and timeless design. I want people feel good wearing my jewelry.
Feel unique and special.

I am very excited to share with you, that my handmade necklace “Reef” won Grand Prize Gold Medal in Fire Mountain Gems and Beads (seed bead) jewelry contest.
This necklace is my favorite; it’s bold but very wearable and versatile. It took me many hours to create it. Best of all, I had fun in the process.
For me beading is an art that explores the blending of color and texture, searching balance between shapes and forms. I love experimenting with new materials and produce age-old beauty; rather gold or silver, glass seed beads are used to create a unique one of kind necklaces, bracelets and earrings. This departure from traditional metals allows for a synthesis between texture and form. Additionally, the use of glass seed beads leads to coloration that would rarely be pursued or achieved with metals.
I am particularly interested in the matching of color between stones, creating thematic
When I design, for me are very important good structure, balance and composition of stones in jewelry peace. I love combining different color natural stones and crystals, and making beautiful color palette. When you first being to select stone combinations you will inevitably be drawn to your favorite stones, but if they do not enhance one another in your intended jewelry design, they will not look an attractive to eye. I think the success for good jewelry design is three factors: color, form, and texture.
One of the questions I am most frequently asked is “Where do you get your ideas from?”
For me, nature is the most important creative force in my work. Inspiration may come from observing an individual flower, leaf pattern, or the much wider picture of an interesting landscape, seascape. The interesting people, inspiring places , the sandy beaches of cape cod, and all creatures of underwater world – all have influence both my life and my art. If myhandmade jewelry could talk, it would sound like the stories and poems about beauty of nature and human being.
I think beadwork can be enjoyed either as striking art-to-wear jewels or appreciated and displayed as independent art objects that possess the ageless qualities and beauty of heirloom treasures.

Bold Statement Necklace.
Hand crafted work from the past or from remote cultures is a recurring influence in my jewelry.
I feed my imagination on old work, and I working direct from nature, making as many sketches as I can.
For this necklace I used Onyx (traditionally been used to banish grief) and Tiger-eye cabochons. Natural turquoise jewelry - December birthstone, enhances prosperity and optimistic outlook, and Citrine (has traditionally used to attract wealth) beads, Swarovski crystals, Czech glass.
I used black mate seed beads to give necklace hint of the exotic. I think this necklace looks powerful and makes a bold statement.
Black Onyx Tiger Eye Necklace.
After spending all my morning waking at the beach, I had a vision of an ocean inspired necklace. I was seduced by warm palette of seashells and cool colors of water. I gathered some shells, beach glass, and went back to my studio.
In this necklace I decided to use natural ocean jasper cabochon (when worn, ocean jasper emits a gentle nurturing energy), natural white coral cabochons (helps promote balance and modesty). I used opal sea green, opal moss green, opal ivory, opal tan silver lined seed beads, coral, mother-of-pearl natural beads, and Czech glass.
Color is an extremely important to me, because it influences mood. This necklace beautiful palette of colors - whites, greens, and shades of sand - brings the soothing calm of the seashore into your hart and body.
Mother-of- pearl beads epitomizes feminine loveliness, Czech glass beads add sparkle, and fringe brings interest and hint of the exotic to the necklace.

Designer jewelry with sunny Amber.
I am inspired by the natural radiance of amber, and its warm and golden tones. Amber is fossilized tree resin, over 50 million years old. While amber can be found throughout the world, the finest comes from the southern shore of the Baltic Sea.
Baltic amber is referring as the “Gold of the North”. In 16th-18th century, necklaces, bracelet, watch cases, buttons, boxes, and even luxury interior fittings were made using amber. Amber was acclaimed to posses the power of healing.
True Baltic amber usually is milky and pale under the crust and occurs naturally in a variety of colors: yellow, white, red, brown, and black. Green and blue are most rare.
I got this beautiful, like a sunshine amber stone, and decided to design a gorgeous bracelet. Like you see, amber is nicely complemented by gold and warm earth tones.

Which beading threads to choose?
I love to bead with Fire Line thread. It’s prewaxed, strong, flexible and ideal for use with silk seed beads and crystals, which can have sharp edges that cut other threads. They resist fraying and have near-zero stretch.
I may choose a Fire Line for strength; for another piece a Nymo threads - perfect for color match (it comes in 18 colors).
That’s why I decided to make a peace of jewelry “Nature Inspired” simple, with four- color palette( black, cream, brown and grey) and bold abstract patterns.
This necklace looks amazing at winter time with the blacks and grays; summer and spring with the cream, white and grey blue colors; fall with earth tones.
