Stones and silver,
Made for you!
• Why am I here?
• What am I doing?
• Where is my other sock?
• Do I really deserve this gorgeous wire wrapped jewel around my neck?
While we don’t know where that other sock is, we do know one thing: You SO deserve to feel razzled and bedazzled, but never frazzled. Everyone has the right to let their beauty shine.
Elizabeth built her business with a relentless focus on three key elements: passion, craftsmanship, and stones. Her goal is to help you strengthen your connection to your beautiful, true Self. It is with this intention that Wire Wrap Jewelry Art was created.
Expectations can get in the way of our divine right to express ourselves in a way that truly aligns with who we are. By overcoming those expectations and being true to ourselves, by choosing a passionate life and letting our light shine, we're here to help your light shine too. With this intention, each piece becomes more than a work of art; the weave becomes part of the tapestry of your own beautiful expression.
Since our goal is to provide meaningful jewelry that touches the very core of your being, Elizabeth is dedicated to perfecting her art. With each and every piece she searches for ways to improve her craft. Elizabeth is grateful for the confidence placed in her to deliver a quality product that speaks to your inner sparkle.
Elizabeth loves the less-than-perfect stones above all; they so accurately reflect the human condition: perfect in our very imperfection. She looks for stones with inclusions (foreign materials trapped inside), for a truly unique piece with tons of character. In amber, an inclusion can be an insect; in a sapphire, highly reflective rutile needles scatter the light and create the coveted star effect. See? Perfectly messed up!
Elizabeth is here for you. She works to create products that will add quality of life and that will last a long time. Check out our page on Jewelry Care if your piece becomes too tarnished or dull. And sparkle on!
We hope you enjoy these images of previous work that has been sold or commissioned. If you are interested in having a custom stone wrapped, we can't wait to hear from you!

Are you in search of a unique wire-wrapped jewelry piece? Whether it's a semi-precious gemstone, a special bead, or even an unconventional find like a plate shard, look no further than Wire Wrap Jewelry Art!
Have you found a gemstone that needs a new lease on life or a better fit? Have you considered turning that intriguing seashell, beach glass, or lone earring into a stunning pendant, proudly showcased on a durable sterling silver chain?
When it comes to jewelry, nothing quite matches the radiance of sterling silver, except, perhaps, for gold. But here at Wire Wrap Jewelry Art, we exclusively work with sterling silver.
Let me share an example of our craftsmanship. Sherry from New Jersey entrusted us with her precious heirloom emerald. This emerald, originally acquired by her mother on her honeymoon in Brazil, had been sitting idle for years. It was the sentimental value of the inheritance that led Sherry to us, allowing us to transform this emerald into a wearable masterpiece.
Our custom wire wrap design highlights the emerald's natural beauty, set in a sparkling sterling silver setting. This piece not only exudes elegance but also embodies the emerald's innate qualities, promoting creativity, eloquence, faith, and hope.
Now, let's take a look at another unique creation. This one is quite unusual – a plate shard discovered on the shores of Thailand by Michelle from Ohio, USA, shortly after the 2004 Tsunami. While our client believes it's from that tragic event, we can't help but wonder if its origins stretch even further back in time. The scalloped edges, particularly evident in the "From this" photo above, hint at an intriguing history. Could it be from China, or does it have a more local origin? We'd love to hear your thoughts on this intriguing piece!
Drawing on our background in ceramics at Wire Wrap Jewelry Art, we appreciate the use of glazes and the unique absence of a clear finish glaze on the face of the plate. The pleasing cream color with blue accents enhances the overall design, making it quite captivating. Michelle, thank you for entrusting us with your fascinating plate shard; it was our pleasure to create a beautiful wire-wrapped piece for you.
If you have a special request for custom wire-wrapped jewelry, don't hesitate to reach out to Elizabeth via email today!

It is PERFECT, Elizabeth! I am so glad I found you. I had been saving this special stone that I bought in Brazil some twenty years ago, for you to wrap, and it was so worth the wait! I adore it! The little silver beads that adorn it on the right side are just perfect. And the back is just as pretty as the front. I couldn’t be any happier with the job you did wrapping my stone. Thank you!
~ Sherry in Black Mountain
The person I gifted this to was astonished by it. Would definitely be interested in seeing more pieces from the seller in the future. Thank you so much!
