Elizabeth Plumb Jewelry– unique creations by a focused mother

Share

Elizabeth Plumb Jewelry.

To start of this month, we’d like to give thanks to one of our first and most loyal customer, Elizabeth Plumb. Hands down one of the most creative jewelry creator in the world. She’s also a busy new mother so she’s left us wondering how it’s even possible to give all the love and care to a child while staying focused to create such spectacular designs. If you’re the type of person who just can’t refuse the Sundance Catalog type of jewelry, then Elizabeth Plumb design is for you! Matter of fact, if you’ve ever browsed the Sundance Catalog or receive it in the mail, you’ve already seen her creative designs.

We have designed and manufactured hill tribe silver components for Elizabeth Plumb jewelry for many years and counting. Elizabeth is a loyal customer and from a supplier’s perspective– demanding of quality. LOL. She wants her silver jewelry components handmade to ‘HER SPECIFICATIONS’ always. This is a reassurance to her customers that the designs she makes is not only stunning and practical but also withstanding. Here’s a bit about Elizabeth as described by her.

About Elizabeth Plumb –by E.Plumb –Excerpt from http://www.elizabethplumbjewelry.com

So my story is fairly simple. Ten years ago, I began making jewelry as a hobby. Although I loved the process of creating the jewelry, I found myself stashing my finished pieces in the kitchen drawer. Eventually, I gained enough confidence in my work and to wear some of my jewelry and even began giving pieces as gifts. After a couple of phones calls from people offering to buy pieces they had seen on friends and family members, and even a lady at the grocery store requesting to buy a piece right off of my neck, I was ready to take the plunge. Here in Salt Lake City, we have a wonderful art and farmers market that gives any serious artisan the opportunity to present their work in the open market. Although I was terrified to open myself to the scrutiny , half way through my first showing I was hooked. Within a year I had quit my day job, was doing every market and art show that would have me, and was totally content with where my little business was at. But natural progression and new opportunities required that I refocus my efforts. So to make a long story short, my husband quit his day job to manage the business so that I could totally dedicate myself to new desings. Although we still consider ourselves a bit of a “ma and pa operation,” (and continue to love doing art shows and markets), we now have pieces in galleries and shops throughout the country and have also been given opportunity to design pieces for the Sundance Catalog and as well as a few smaller publications.

If shopping online is not your thing, I will be showing my work weekly at the Downtown Art and Craft Market in Salt Lake City as well as the Park Silly Sunday Market in beautiful Park City, Utah. I also present my work at various galleries and art festivals throughout the year. To date, I’ve been blessed to have fifteen of my original pieces featured in the Sundance Catalog.

Each piece of artisan jewelry you will find is an original design and has been handcrafted using semi-precious metals such as sterling silver, gold, brass, and patina copper. A few of the semi precious stones I love working with are turquoise, garnet, labradorite, citrine, apatite, and chalcedony. You’ll also find cultured pearls, cz’s, hand blown glass, leather,wood, and Irish linen incorporated into various pieces. Wire wrapping is one of my favorite techniques and each piece of wire wrapped jewelry is done with sterling silver or gold filled wire to ensure it’s stye and durability.
