Lovely Lizard Art Jewelry

Actually "lovely" just doesn't quite describe it... beautiful? a bit quirky? interesting? how about gorgeously unique? I came across Lizard's Jewelry on Etsy a couple of years ago and I said "Wow!" ummmm quite a few times as I was browsing her shop. I LOVE the combination of silver and polymer clay. It is like they were made for one another. The contrast is so pleasing and satisfying. The artist who creates this amazing work is Liz Hall who lives with her husband Jeff Hall at Silverwood Farm and Studio in Virginia where they not only create their art but also opperate their pinto sporthorse breeding farm.


Silver and polymer Belt Buckle

I love how Liz uses swirls in different ways in her work. I like swirls and use them on occasion myself. :)

Go Green Stripes Silver Pendant


This heart pin may be my favorite. Red, silver, black and white is one of my favorite color combos. I love the swirls and the pearls and the way the little notches on the side are mirrored in the black and white dashes. So very visually appealing.

Well, maybe this one is my favorite.... Please take a moment to click on the photo which takes you to the listing, then click on the photo which will allow you to enlarge it to really see the details of this necklace. It is well worth the extra effort! This piece is designed so beautifully!!

This is what Liz says about her work in her Artist Statement:
"My work combines precious metals, stones, plastics, polymers, glass or whatever object catches my eye. My designs are contemporary combining both organic and geometric forms. The majority of my pieces are pendants, necklaces and earrings, though I do occasionally make other items. My main focus in the past was fabricating metals to create my designs. In 2004 I discovered a new medium called PMC (Precious Metal Clay), which is clay like material composed of fine silver. Fine Silver is the highest quality silver, essentially 999% pure silver, as compared to the 925% silver of sterling silver. I enjoy exploring this new medium and combining it with other materials. I strive to always improve on my designs and techniques and to make jewelry that is creative, unusual, elegant and fun to wear."

Please take some time to enjoy a leisurely browse through Lizard Jewelry.
